Update: 18/11/2015 - Sports Cat & Emissions

Got the car back 2 weeks ago and its been going like a hot snot ever since

The wideband was installed & setup and will need a 2nd calibration soon also(after reading up on it, this is normal), also got a new battery, Link G4+ firmware update & rear wheel bearing re-grease & tighten(seemed to fix brake pedal feel)

NCT(Ireland's National Car Test) was last friday but it failed on the emissions with the sports cat. They need a good bit of heat in them but was left waiting for a while so it got cold and they couldn't get it to pass.

New fat bastard draper 2tonne low profile jack - 35kg!!!

Sports cat removed for the moment, stock cat back in, retest on the 25th Nov

Picked up a CTEK MXs 5.0 Battery Charger to keep battery topped up over winter

Some underside shots - in relativity good nick to be fair

Clean HICAS / Diff

Underside of turbo with slight weepy return line(nothing major) - yes I know I am missing a turbo nut, will get that sorted, no impact anyway

Next steps: Car comes off the road for the winter at the end of Nov & i'll tinker with it over that time and put some money away for that elusive hybrid kit with ext wastegate

Stay tuned......
