My bro used to get his DC5 worked on by Guy and my mate had alot of dealings with him when he had his turbo'd EP3 as he was part of the CPL team so im pretty lucky really to have someone like this so close by.

Wouldnt mind seeing what figures you get from the above parts as thats the sort of mods I would be wanting to do...well minus the CAI as I already got a Gruppe M.

I've not been, but I;ve spoken to Guy a couple of times about mods I was considering and his advice was excellent. I'll be using them when I do the next round of performance mods :D

Well, my house move is finally done so finances are starting to settle down again which is great. So....time to spend a bit on my car which has been neglected so far in 2009....

I'm really interested in seeing how gruesome-n gets on with those mods and seeing some dynos if he's doing them.

I might get a couple of small bits at my second service at ABP in October too - but more likely to be springs/coilovers/brakes rather than any power mods.

Mmmmm interesting...I want to do some more mods too but must sort out my finances first...it seems I'm one stage behind Rich at the moment lol:) I'm certainly thinking TODA exhaust and manifold, Gruppe M and Flashpro....tasty! When u go to CPL let me know we can try and get a discount from Guy...maybe get Johnno in there too!

See you boys in a few weeks

Rich & Vince,

The next MOD you should really be thinking about is the LSD. I drove my car Back to Back against Jamie33's Fn2 C/W. The diffrence around the Twists and exiting Round abouts was amazing!
