Adam's 172 Turbo Build

In other news.. I bought some tyres to help with traction, was going to go for full slicks but the rules for Snetterton say you must have a FIA approved cage, although mine is approved it’s only a rear cage which seems a bit of a grey area at the moment.

In the end I went for the next best thing.
4 x A050’s these have brilliant reviews for grip, although not road legal they’ll not cause me any trouble at the track.

Yeah I’m pretty sure it says Motorsport Use only or something similar on the sidewall. I’ve got another set of wheels with PS3’s I was using as wets so they’ll do for the road.

Went for a trip to Snetterton today for the time attack, car feels pretty quick for 1bar of boost, pulls away from my mates 430hp S4

Coolant or oil? Oil got up to around 90 earlier on quick 15min drive. Coolant sat in middle of standard gauge like normal. It’s the fuel gauge that moves the most
Haha I bet it does, coolant, just with the intercooler etc blocking the path for air wasn't sure if this would be an issue on track

Where did you get the sandwich plate from bud, that looks awesome!
Cheers. It’s G-Plus thermostat controlled one, think it was around £100 from eBay or Amazon.

Still need a cup alternator if anyone has one 😁

Started making some brake ducts today, will get some pics up when there finished, hoping they turn out as good as I’m picturing in my head.

Fitted new sunstrip. My mate makes these with anything you want on, I’ll happily pass on his number if anyone is interested. He did my roof stickers to and we’re currently designing some others.

Went for quick spin earlier, fuelling perfect, temperatures looked good. Just waiting for EFI to get back to me so can be mapped more progressively.

Still only running 1bar boost. No speed limits exceeded 👮🏻‍♂️ Listen in 1080p apart from the rattles I think it sounds pretty smart 😁

Epic!! Sounds absolutely awsome. Bet you are well chuffed. Can't imagine it's that easy not to break any speed limits 😂
Cheers buddy. Hopefully being mapped in next couple of weeks so I can run more boost and have it more progressive, it does double the speed limit in seconds ... on private roads of course 👮🏻‍♂️😂

Had a s**t weekend, front of car was on axle stands due to the subframe being off, all the rain we had yesterday resulted in the gravel drive giving way and the car falling into the house 🙁 luckily it wasn’t up very high and didn’t fall far but still damaged the wing, headlight and steering rack that all require replacement, one of the only times I’ve been glad to be a panel beater 😆 thanking my lucky stars as could have been so much worse.

Got it back up with some help, stripped wing and headlight out, luckily no inner wing or front panel damage.

Next was ABS sensor replacement, became pretty obvious why this wasn’t working 😂 absolute pain to get the old one out but got there in the end.

On a side note, what model puma trainers are they? I had a red pair ages ago and i quite fancy another pair now. They look kinda retro now too and they was the best shape of that genre!

So when you getting the wackerplate out on the drive to get your own back?
Haha! Yeah could of been a lot worse mate, even tho it seemed like the end of the world at the time! 😂
