Hello all haven't been on for a while ,been very so busy with work and other projects I hardly have time to think

made a couple more upgrades to my motor since I was last on . here are a couple of pics of the new outer look of the car once I rebuilt the motor etc. I haven't had many problems to be honest ,it's running a ported and polished 225 st head and turbo charger. the eom dump valve has been removed with a puma speed kit and replaced with an lam motor sport one ,full silicone blue hose kit and alloy pipeing kit . bigger inter cooler . my new stainless turbo back exhaust has now come and will be fabricated to fit soon as I get a minuet also got myself a set of bigger injectors on order should be here soon then it can have the map played with . all the audio has been replaced with digital componants system 2 amps have been built into the car (they can't be seen stelth ) for better sound as the eom speakers had seen better days and sounded like crap and fitted a DVD set up to keep the kids busy I have had the car about 2 years now and love it to bits just a couple more bits to do befor I give it to the miss so I can run my other toy I have been building

You won't be in any position to take them back to the shop when you're laid up in intensive car after one gave way on the motorway...

Believe me I have seen the results of what happens when wheels are fitted to vehicles that are too heavy for them. It's not pretty and the 3 kids & one adult in the car were very lucky to escape with their lives.

Don't risk it. Fit wheels which are KNOWN to be load tested safe for a 2 tonne S-Max + 7 adults + luggage.
