thought i would update this. managed to blow the head gasket 3 weeks ago racing a mk4 r32 golf. headgasket was a small price to pay just for the look on his face Very Happy .
anyway i stripped it down and sent the head of to me machined and have all the valves done. then i broke a tiny bit inside one of the vvc mechanisims. its been a bit of a night mare really but its finally almost back together.
hoping to be racing it at the pod on sat 12th (8 days time)
few pics

more do do with the fact i have 155 tires out back and 185's up front! skinny tires out back = less drag up strip!

anyway its back out on the streets again. so far so good. im taking up santa pod on sat see what it runs with the vvc. hoping for mid - low 14 secs this time.
