205/55x15 sounds like what you’ve got on 8 ball TBH?

17mm on my 15x7 Wolfrace with 205/60R15 Avon ZV5 fitted.

The tyre will rub on the ARB unless I adjust the trunnions stops.

Offset is 0.125” (3.2mm) and I have 10mm spacers fitted.

Mocked up the 5 speed RX8 box in a scrap chassis today. It won’t fit a CVH chassis

Just for my reference, zetec flywheel bolts are M11 x 1.0 and 23mm long. When using the 1800 flywheel on an ST170, you can’t use the original bolts because they’re too long (being a dual mass flywheel originally).

Yep, purchased last night thanks James :D

The £10 postage seemed steep (plus £4 VAT) but when I shopped around I couldn’t find any cheaper than the £26 I paid. ARP were starting at £32 +VAT + P&P but I decided against them.

Thought I’d take some surplus wires out while I had the dash out (ready to fit a speeduino in place of the current Megasquirt).

This is a mock up of the planned location for the fuse/relay box and ECU. I may still change my mind and make a drop down panel in the dash so I can access the wiper motor without hanging upside down in the footwell or having to take the cage out :D

Didn’t get much done last weekend apart from cutting a hole in the bulkhead to see if the T16 manifold will fit without modification (like the existing one has).
