A good heavy knob makes all the difference [smash.gif]

Those toyos should be good and grippy

Took me ages to find the early type VTiS alloy gearknob same as yours mate......and that was about 7 years ago! Well done on finding one now, cracking bit of kit that. I was sure I had one somewhere in the garage (had both the early one and the later one) but christ knows where it is now since we moved home lol

Asked and asked and asked for years never found one. Then Dan who was asking for speedlines the other day put one for sale. Snapped it up straight away.

Cool. 

Finally managed to get a reply from goodridge today. The ones listed for the deck are the same as the ej/ek ones but the mb6 ones are different. When I pointed that out they replied asking for the lengths so they could double check.

Mine if anything are a touch long. Fine but fronts in particular were awkward to route.

Had a couple issues lately. Car was struggling to boost. Seemed to be on wastegate pressure only. 

Found that the 3 port boost solenoid is not functioning properly. But also whilst looking for potential causes. Noticed my bloody rediculously expensive manifold had a crack in it around the wastegate.

Thaught oh no not again, had so many issues with racetech manifold cracking. Bit that cracked withing a month and this has lasted over a year so suppose not too bad. 

Right so to fix it. Me pal Rich tig'd up the wastegate flange and added a little piece of stainless to try spread the load a little. And I set about making a support bracket for the underside of the turbo.

Also found some new seats. The leathers are not great on track, i was sliding all over the place making it much harder to change direction quickly.

But equally the car is not an all out track beast so didn't want bucket seats.

OEM Recaros seemed to make the most sense, nice half way house between support and comfort for the road.

Yes! The seats look just the job. Bet they will look spot on in your mb. 

 

Good work on the mani as well, hopefully the mods stopping it happening again.

One down. Used the accord rails moved one bracket forward. And needed to weld the inside rear from the original seat onto it.
