so thought I would update the thread, got the car back!

driven about 200 KM so far both on the open road and in traffic and overall I am pretty happy with it.

On a smooth flat and empty motorway last night I got up to 175 Kph then part of the rubber around the windscreen got loose so slowed down. Definitely more to go.

It does not feel torquey like a turbo car but very free revving and faster and way more responsive than before.

Also fine in traffic, clutch is not heavy and no overheating.

Thanks for all the help and advise from the BM's here






I have a UK trip next month, when I am back as expenses allow I will be doing more mods, next I would like some semi-bucket seats, a brake upgrade (maybe using Skyline R32 4pot calipers), a short shift kit, maybe an EVO steering rack.

cheers

Have had a few busy months but the last few weeks had a little more time so have done some more mods to my Lancer:

Got the oil pressure and temp gauges working and a bit of fake carbon fibre on the dashboard (still got a couple of air bubbles to worry about but looks ok for a first attempt:




Got some new seats, budget didn't allow Genuine Recaro's or Brides. Did look at some copies that looked nice but I was concerned about the safety and longer term durability of copy/fake seats so in the end found a shop who sold me and fitted a nice set of used Mazda RX8 seats:




The shop's FB page is:
https://www.facebook.com/Bypassseat/
if anyone is intrested

Got some new tyres, again was on a budget but read some good reviews on Maxxis i-Pro's so went for these in 205/45R16



hated the old school key and alarm fob, so got a new folding key reprogrammed to match the existing alarm/remote central locking:

old...


new...



next step will be to sort out the rebound on the rear coilovers as the back of the car is a little bouncy on some rough Thai roads, then after that I am looking at doing a brake upgrade.

cheers
