I was on my way to office when it happened, driving normally. Phase-2 mods have not started yet, lets wait for a answer from Phil.

So is this incident going to delay the phase-2 mods? I'm sure you're thinking along the same lines. I don't advise you to go ahead with the turbo and new internals, after this incident. Wait for the City to regain its health.

Yes, infact I had planned to take a break before going ahead with these mods, don't want to rush things up, will get bored after then LOL

Anyway, I've been following your thread very keenly. Can't wait for the phase-2 mods. They look so mouth-watering! Keep up the good work, bro! I loved the video in the earlier page, by the way! The hand holding onto the dash at the end of the video is priceless!

Like I said I am on a break

Honestly I have been tied up with a lot of work lately, even now I post from a different country traveling for business, I shall post pictures of the new stuff I got once I am back home, though the list is as follows

1. Full MSD Ignition kit
2. AEM Wideband
3. Original OMP Black/Blue tuner racing seats.
4. Toora Semi-Deep dish racing wheel.

I should hopefully start the new phase of mods after the track day is over @ BIC. I really want to drive this thing on the track and test it at its full potential.

Your engine is running very lean at idle, mate.

The Engine is not running as you can see from the Oil pressure gauge. The AEM wideband reads a healthy value of around 12 at idle

That's weird, it looks like it's idling. The tacho-needle is just under 1k RPM.

Good update, Sir. I quite like the seats. Could we have a picture of the steering-wheel, if it's been done already?
