    Over three years since I've last checked this build :lol: Have to say that's one amazing little metro. What's the figures now with the better breathing?

    219bhp, currently building the gearbox. It turns out it actually had a gearbox from an SiR so I'm changing 2nd gear to match the type R and fitting the Mfactory close ratio 3rd, 4th and 5th with carbon synchros and plate LSD.

    Not much of an update but I was never 100% sure on the current shifter and position so I bought some type R linkages and cut them in half (they're about a foot too long). Also bought a K tuned shifter.
