  1. ha ha Hutty - yes a carbon fibre bonnet 😄 engine has been breathed on slightly m8 - schimmel 263 cams, BMC CDA air filter, Stealth racing remap, Roose motorsport hoses & magnecor leads (bay pic is before the blue leads were fitted)
  2. circumference's should be the same as front & rear are both 16" & on a 45 profile tyre - it is the just the barrel & tyre width that is different Dox my ABS is made redundant anyway as the HiSpec 4 pots on the front kick the OE brakes all around the park! plus my ABS hasnt been fully functional for years lol
  3. i get what you both mean with the standard part but honestly, once fitted i doubt anyone could tell they are lupo arms i have had to go with wiper arm mounted washer jets too as there was no way i was going to cut the carbon fiber bonnet - now they are on they give a massively better wash of the screen compared to jets bouncing off the screen lol
  4. small update.... put one of the modena's alongside the VR & am thinking these are going to look fantastic once refurb'd & fitted 😄 ive got the 1st of the 4 is now split down - 40 bolts per wheel but took my time & had a little help from good old WD40 the barrels are super light once the face is removed!! 3 more to split & i can get the faces to the machine shop guy for the redrilling to 5*100 hopefully the 240 grit wet & dry 6" discs will arrive this week so i can get to work on the very minor kerbing. am hoping to get away with a 240, 320 & then 1000 & 3000 for finishing but will get some 600 if needed planning to order the centre inserts & split pins at the end of the month - not cheap but nowhere near the cost of the hex nuts or cover plates would be if they were missing tyres seems to be my main issue again though, i was hoping the increase to 16" from the 15" speedlines would give me more options but sadly not think im going to give bridgestone themselves a call to see if they have any lying around their factory as ATM it is looking like yokohama AD08RS are the only option in a premium as i need 205/45/16 on the 7J fronts & 225/45/16 on the 8J rears does anyone have any experience of these tyres? i know they are semi slick aimed at track but i wont be planning on doing much travelling in the wet
  5. stick some lupo's on there m8 - they are very much better than the OE arms a fresh windscreen, lupo arms & new blades have transformed the wipe at all speeds & rain strengths on my VR6
  6. ha ha ha i think she is doing rather well as she is atm LOL
  7. i can check the late VR6 tomorrow for the bracket in the picture IF i can actually see it with all the bumper fitted etc if i can access it i will take some pics for you & post them
  8. had a look & no the 16v rad sits at an angle as well what is the extra bracket bit you mention?
  9. ive got a feeling the rad sits differently in the VR6 compared to the 16v so that could be the reason i know the VR rad is at an odd angle will go look under the bonnet of the 16v in a tick as im in that one today
  10. from my post in 2009 looking at the ford invoice it shows 7364573 & was £32.50+vat
  11. thinking about it i dont believe you can even load a static map on the VR chip, it has to be hacked & roller mapped thus only other route would be to run a piggy back stand alone chip - which i would be very hesitant at doing as it will likely cause running issues
  12. thanks easypops Tenny - FYI all for sale posts on this forum should have a price & location (mod's can all we please make sure these are stated before we approve a post, thanks)
  13. we have a little company called Stealth Racing over here in the UK Vince hacks into the OE ECU & then remaps them on the rollers as the VR requires a live mapping, rather than a static map such as can be uploaded on more modern cars sorry this doesnt help you much over in canada but it may give you a lead to hunt down somewhere over there who could do the same
  14. i agree MJA & ive been after a set for about 10 years as they are my all time wheel for my VR6 so sometimes you just gotta pay plus, once refurb'd & completed they will be worth an absolute mint!!
  15. blimey that is a good price!! & made me choke a little at what ive laid out for my autostrada modena's LOL
