Today was my day off! So I spent my day working on the ek9!
Got the nearside boost pipe done, although I’m not 100% one of the silicone joiners will last long lol
Front bumper mounted and I put the byc air dam I had lying around on the bottom edge. I can’t fit the splitter as my old one is too small for this bumper!!
Quite happy with how it’s turned out.
Probably not to everyone’s taste! But I like it!
Better photo of the tuned by sticker.
Bit of a shame the airdam doesn’t reach all the way around, will probably get another one but it’s not essential.
Also have the engine a service, engine oil change and new spark plugs. All looking good in there.
I wanted to have a play with the oil pressure relief valve so I took the sump off and put a 2.7mm shim in to bump up the pressure a bit.
My car has always been on the low side when it comes to oil pressure.
But after doing this mod the pressure seems much better!
Must of been just a weak spring.
Having the pan off also gave me a chance to inspect the internals, all looked good.
Next on the list is new suspension bushes on the front lower arms.
Really sorry I haven't posted at all for a while. Allot has changed in my life recently!
I'm now a Dad, so not much free time anymore.
But! My car is at work at the moment, and as you can probably guess she's being built into a racecar.
I have done my ARDS got all the kit, and we will hopefully be ready for testing end of the season, and will be racing for a full season in 2019.
I'll be competing in the Castle Combe GT Championship.
I've been lucky enough to gain some sponsorship already, which I'm honoured to have them on board. Tegiwa Imports and Cadley Garage.
Lots will be going on in the next few months, I'll try and post when I can.
