    Iím new here and would appreciate advice

    Hi guys and gals

    Just got myself a r53 s 2004 with a hundred k. The clutch was knackered so I decided to remove the engine
    Replace the clutch service supercharger with fresh oil, fitted a new water pump to be on the safe side and also did a 15% pulley kit. The car has had new brakes and Iíve had the wheels shot blasted and painted in dark grey with disco light lacour (sorry spelling ainít my best point/ neither is my grammar).
    Iíve stuck 4 new tyres on as well. The car already had a k and n fitted inside the air Box and a stainless custom exhaust. My names andy any comments will be greatfullly received.
    Donít know how to post pictures from my iPhone if anyone can help
    Thanks

    Sounds like a great start mate!
    Make sure you use superunleaded with your 15%.

    Andy sounds like you should get out and drive... then you'll want bigger brakes and coilovers.

    15% sensible choice

    now get a cam ;O)

    even a mild cam will make better use of the air you're sending in and free up the entire rpm scale, I can supply any Newman @ £250 or fit for only £312 plus bolt/s and seal/s, while you wait no problem usually, you don't need to map the car for a mild cam but more so for any pulley, or fast road cam in conjunction with one particularly really, bearing in mind even the JCW with an 11% pulley was mapped for it, it figures any other size would require it to protect your engine and get the best from all parts.

    Looks clean as a whistle mate. Have a look at the projects section and start your own thread there. Makes adding pics much easier
