I apologise for the spacing above. I am now sure why it has double spaced every line. I pasted the list into notepad(which normally removes all formatting) and then pasted it into the forum.

Current work in progress

1. I have purchased the DOM number 4 cylinder cooling mod and it will be installed soon.

2. The car currently(2019) has an OpenSource ecu remap with dual boost switching

3. I have purchased another oem ecu. I intend to use it for SD tuning with flex fuel. The carberry rom will be used for this project.

I have replaced the following

cam position sensor

crank position sensor

OEM clutch master cylinder

OEM clutch slave cylinder

All oils.

Re-tuning is about to start.

Covid 19 has stopped my work on this car.

I still have a job ;) and have been working very long hours.

I am hoping to install some of my car parts and return to tuning in Dec 2020.

Cool build, I trust you're able to keep yourself safe, especially as the medical professions are some of the few that are 'booming' in these troubled times.

You didn't seem to mention the clutch?

I have had the car from 2002.

Clutch is modified by a local LUK dealer. Higher pressure plate. So far that has worked. But it needs a tune so we will see...

Back working on the car.

Looking at ECU upgrades.

I Tuned Tip in. Car is smoother
