    Been buying more toys...

    Got a 4" autometer tacho to use instead of the standard one. Less mucking around than getting the standard one to work, and I like the look. I will be replacing the standard tacho completely with this one.

    A 3L surge tank for fuel, no idea where I will put it, but I will sort something out. It may not fit, but it was cheap :p I'm thinking in the spare wheel well with a airtight cover over the top. Somewhere to keep the pumps too, and hopefull keep the noise down a bit.

    Two Bosch 044's with the little ally brackets. They are 700hp pumps, so I won't run out of fuel, but not sure if the reg will be big enough now... May go the next step up from the Turbosmart FPR600 that I already have.

    A davies craig water pump controller so I can completely flick the thermostat.

    Going to have a nice little selection of presents waiting for me when I get home from this awful snowy place :D

    Before I left I put the Aus spec series 1 260kph speedo into my series 2 jap spec cluster. I did this as the plugs on the cluster are different between S1 and S2. It went straight in, all the little plugs just worked, so I'm hoping it will work. Pretty sure that Magic Mike did this with his.

    I think it might be time for a new thread soon, this is getting a little long and apparently it doesn't work so well with stupid retarded mode (threaded:p)...

    Ah crap, it was the old dodgy one. Just bought a digi one now :)

    Tacho isn't very hecktic at all :p And 4" is the right size, better than a big monster 5.5" thing :p

    I found a digital controller that gives oil and water temp readouts as well, I'll use that to control the water pump. I finally cut my bonnet up, will update my thread eventually.

    Lets see some mount or sump action :)

    Yeah, when I get back. I'm still in Finland. It's around -10 at the moment, my eyeballs are so cold...

    Quick update, been busy with uninteresting non zed related stuff...

    Pulled the engine and box out again, sold the gearbox and will be installing my rebuilt NA 5 speed.

    Done some quick cad drawings up to get exhaust flanges and engine mount bits to get laser cut up.

    Diff and rear subframe will be getting pulled out soon to install the Nismo LSD, subframe bushes, and probably the control arm bushes.

    Also have a clever dick idea on converting the rack to proper non power assisted. That will get a seperate thread to itself ;)
