Default Track day mods

With any luck i'll be heading up to Croft circuit www.croftcircuit.co.uk tomorrow for a 1/2 day session, spent today tinkering, not huge mods but hopefully they'll help a little.

First problem was fixing a boost leak, 2 jubilee clips on either side of the cuff had'nt worked so i dug out some proper Mikalor hose clamps, seems to have done the trick!

Next on the list was to do a little custom intake mod, hopefully this will help the engine breath a bit better with nice cool high pressure air being forced into the inlet.






Now for the 'just incase senario!'




And finally, this should be worth a few iHP , just to cover the rusty tailpipe, cunningly installed upside down so you can't see the ****yspeed (ripspeed) logo .




Final mod will be done later after i fill the tank, a bit of octane booster to make the day go a little quicker!

I would like to see some pictures after the event. But do you really think octane booster is going to do anything, and if so even raise it 2 points

I have'nt used it on the NG but definitely made a difference to my c900 8v turbo, in theory it should raise the pump 97 octane (93ish in the US?) to just over 100, not having a big boost leak has definitely made a difference to the performance so will see if it gets even better.

Just read the ingredients and it's basically kerosene.
I've converted one of those sat nav windscreen suction holders to mount my digi camera on, i should get some nice footage if it does'nt fall off!
