Awesome! Lucky... I had to do a gps reading at 30kph, 60kph and 90kph then give the cluster and readings to a local guage etc specialist to calibrate

Yea the only issue is to change it i have to plug into the Ecu but i havnt got the equipment to do it so might get Harman Brothers to run it up on there dyno again and set it. Its a pain having to trailer it everywhere and pricey. Hard to do it all in a day

Right, i got the speedo sorted turns out it was reading exactly double so that was easy to sort just took it back in and harmans changed it in a minute. So im booked in for Cert on tuesday the 19th with Donn hoff. Im getting very nervous just not sure if ive engineered this well enough but guess ill find out soon enough. Just need to go for a WOF this week but that involves another trailor and afternoon off work unless i sneak it down the road to the local service station.

So with an LS1 that will be quite regularly, but not for last long?

Went for a wof today. wasnt too bad really. other than a bulb there were too important things. first is the brakes are still spongy and pull one way. i think i found out why, one of the pistons isnt retracting on the caliper and it had the rubber boot between the pad and piston so ill rebuild the caliper tomorrow and one of the rear calipers need rebuilding too so they are easy. my big problem is the front tires sit outside the guards by about 10mm and i cant go any narrower on the tyres stretch wise. so either i roll the guards which i dont want to do so im probably going to get some rubber and bolt it to the bottom of the guards and hopefully that will do. Oh and the height of the sump was noted as being under 100mm.

Why don't you want to roll the guards? It wouldn't take much by sounds of it? Bit of rubber on the guards is what 4wd'ers do with big tyres etc...

Haha fair enough. Dial in some more negative camber? Would no doubt get pulled up on that though haha
