Haha yeah, will swap the cheap manifold out at some point but it sounds better than a D14! Me and Steve were saying this last night, this all started after we realised the old engine and exhaust combo were too quiet...aha
Haha yeah, I wish it didn't! Just glad I still live at home til September or the civic would be long gone haha.
To be fair, both times I did Rockingham it was HOT and I was pretty hard on the brakes and the pedal never faded, so I don't think I need to worry about the heat dissipation (or lack of) from the drums when I'm driving it sensibly in shitty weather haha
Got new tyres after realising mines were ruined, dunno how I missed them getting that bad.
Made some new radiator brackets quickly as the ones we made at the engine swap were pretty rushed, these are a lot neater. Might re-do the passenger side one as the bends aren't quite right. Had a play with the camera too.
Now done 2700 miles since the engine swap, oil level on the dipstick has gone down about 5mm in this time. Was using a bit of water at the start but isn't anymore. Got a new IACV to fit after I've got a new coolant hose for it, as the ones on there just now look a bit worse for wear. Engine doesn't smoke at all.
All in all, I'm a very happy person. Again, my mates are the best
