I've been in the garage again, I've fitted a quicker power steer rack. And also modified the power steer setup with a new cooler and bottle I'll chuck a photo up shortly

If you don't mind me asking,what workshop are you at?
Car looks the goods you should bring it out to a ccc pursuit sprint sometime.
I'm often out there running a mivec and there's a fwd hatch with 4g93t that's usually there.

so after a bit of mucking round I worked out I had a small throttle body on this manifold, and hidden away was a 60mm, it needs to be stripped as its looking a bit av on the outside the plate is still mint,
remove the pcv tube in the manifold as I wont be using it anymore with the rocker cover changes, removed the fuel reg vacuume line and drilled and taped it and another one next to it for -3 fittings
