First time out since it was put away for the winter in October. Driving way to fast and having way to much fun on twisty roads doing some datalogs to see how my fueling behaves with the ic on. My friends car is a stripped out r5 with Honda k20, that car is nuts :)

Steve, im looking forward to some AFR discussion un my thread when i sorted out some data.

Its a bonkers car, so light and no sound insulation and a 200+hp high revving honda k20 engine screaming in the car, and of course 80s looks...

Bit of a garage change around, Ruby Red gets tucked away and the S which hasn't seen the light of day since I bought it back in about June, gets to come out and play(hopefully!). Mot due in about 6 weeks so needs some exercise.

Finally warm enough to fully strip down the 944 hatch and rebond the glass to the frame it only took two
Days :dope:
There was about 5 inches ether side holding the glass on so came apart easily the only pain was the screws holding the spoiler on. These dident want to come out so I has to drill the heads off.
I used a propper windscdeen fitting kit from eBay to stick it back together and all good :hope:

Searching for a decent cross member, mines getting a bit on the crunchy side.

Almost achieved an MOT on the turbo yesterday! All I have to do is replace a tie rod end boot, and get it tuned to meet emissions. Amazingly it seems to be the most structurally solid car I own!
