Thanks Jeff, it sure should have. I took a bit of time to clean it all up under there a while back and now whenever it gets opened, I give it a quick wipe down. I threw the fuel pressure guage in yesterday too which I think adds to the look.

No worries, will do tomorrow as I'll be detailing my car all arvo/night. at his shop. After all the wheel changes, its fitting he nows sells rims and tyres from the shop too. Personally, the 20s fit but even with the pumped guards and ryobi modified springs, the car just didn't sit right, 19s still look the best.

Hey XH5LWEPN, is that the stock distributor with a MSD cap? Or a new MSD Distributor?

How much that set you back?
