Stick a fuel cleaner in too.
I was pleasantly surprised with the silver project top mounts,I had my doubts as they're so cheap but after a few months they're still good ,slightly harsh with potholes but I can live with itPopped over to Seans today for him to fit the standard manifold to the car, I went off for a bike ride for just over 2 hours and when I got back it was all done as well as the rear brake pad sensor so was ready to roll then Sean noticed that the suspension top strut my didn’t look right on the passenger side

When compared to the drivers side

On closer inspection he notice the top mount had totally split and torn away from the metal so he jacked the car back up and stripped it down and we discovered this

As it had collapsed the metal part had dug into the top ring of the coilivers, thankfully no damage that will cause mechanical failure!

luckily I had put the silver project top mounts I’ve had sat in my garage for the best part of 12 months in the boot of the car just before I set off so Sean managed to get them fitted for me while I was there, obviously got to get them aligned but it drove a lot better on the way home just set up with a bit of negative camber, once it’s MOTd I’ll get it booked in for 4 wheel alignment in Buckley like I did with the R56 (which also needs doing again since putting the teins on!)

I’m now 90% sure I’ll be keeping hold of it, get the janspeed manifold back on but book it in with 1320 for another tomcat to be fabricated
might even put the Aero skirts on it soon
