    All good points. I havent had it tracked yet so that won't help at all .
    I'm running the f20 with the standard diff

    Going to try sort 5th gear out then take it for tracking and MOT see how it is after its been tracked

    Hope you get it sorted out soon.

    Let us know what works the best especially geo setup as it'll help when mine's back together again

    Been a while since I updated.
    I did get rid of the car raffled it as I needed to clear some money.
    Anyway I bought it back a few weeks ago.

    I did sort the 5th gear out before I got rid so thats done.
    When I got it back I fit a different thermostat housing as the one on was cracked, also had the wheels refurbed and got brand new nankang ns2r tyres.
    Got them on now but the fronts are stupidly close to the wings.....ffs
    If I tried driving it then the wings would get ripped off.
    I am running 10mm spacers as they use to rub on the coilovers with the 1.4 hubs. I'm wondering if they are sticking out so much due to now having 2l hubs on and wondering if I dont need the spacers now, I'm not sure if there is any size different between the hubs??

    Going to try some things tomorrow, I'll try without spacers and see if it rubs the coilovers. If it does I'll see if I can remove the helper springs from coilovers so then might not need spacers as should clear the tyre.

    Any more ideas? Apart from changing tyres as I cant be buying anymore.

    Sorted out the wheel fitment, I removed the helper springs from the coilovers and took out the spacers so fits a lot better now.
    Took her for a spin and only caught slightly once on full lock so all good.

    Anyway I had her MOT done yesterday passed with flying colours, so now insured and taxed aswell.
    Took her for a blast and she drives real nice, loads of power and isn't trying to throw me all over the road anymore with the new semi slick tyres on .

    My aux belt did decide to shit itself though haha luckily I had one off my old engine that was same size

    Also got an agreed valuation of ?12k and like for like replacement on parts which I'm happy about
    Owes me more than that haha

    Looking well pal. Glad all sorted. Have you checked the belt ain't rubbing the leg slightly I had that on my let nova on hard acceleration and cornering it rubbed and wore the belt through.
