    Small update while I'm still waiting for the authorities to register my car.

    The final piece of the puzzle to pass its test was completed a few weeks ago by a company called Lockwood International, based in Leeds. they did a cracking job replicating the standard dial face. My importer (BHP Imports) installed the dial face for me.

    So, this is the ONLY Alto Works with a MPH speedometer display anywhere.

    Here is a picture of it installed, I think the needle is slightly off but that's an easy fix!

    Maybe be able to pick the car up in the next few weeks.

    I stripped my car out so much it now has 49/49 weight distribution.

      Maybe you'll like this. It's a pamphlet I took from Autobacs a few weeks ago in Japan.

        Brilliant, the modifications are endless

        HKS have a gazillion different types of exhaust for them, CUSCO, KC-Technica have just about any part you can think of listed for them too!

        the downside is I have to pay 20% plus customs to import any parts and the postage is horrendous However BC Coilovers here in the UK can make me suspension at a reasonable cost so may go down that road in the future.

          Happy new year to anyone reading this on the day!

          Got myself a mushroom filter so I can hear the pigeon/dose/whatever you want to call it. I don't think heat soak will be an issue, but I will fabricate a shield to replace the standard airbox.

          2019 plans maybe get a bigger intercooler and fit a fan to it or something, it's barely suitable for the 64hp it has as standard! (one of the many limiting factors to Kei cars)

          I've also got myself an English Kenwood radio, had to make some modifcation for the wiring using Vauxhall/Opel/Holden wiring kit, but they're all pretty generic. I'll upload a wee guide later for that.

                  So I've had an Alto Works around the track, all of my suspicions are correct. The cars intercooler is far too small, so Robert is going to make me a charge cooler when he fixes his Lotus

                  So when that eventually arrives, my mapper has a new file to load on. So the car makes 15psi of boost at 2800-3000rpm and then (because it's limited to 64hp) pulls the boost off really quick, so basically the new map is going to change the target boost to 15psi all the way up the rev range. But I'm expecting the turbo to struggle higher up in the rpms. With a good intercooler and an exhaust modification I should manage to get about 85hp, maybe 90.

                  BUT YOU'LL BLOW UP YOUR ENGINE

                  No

                  So cylinder pressure is complicated, so rule of thumb is that high boost at low rpm is what bends rods generally. This is because you have high cylinder pressure occurring for a long period of time. If you increase rpm, you shorten the time the high load is applied. The theory is that if the load is safe to be applied at low rpm, that same load can be applied at high rpm - however you can't rev to infinity and there are many other factors. but you get the gist. I really don't think I'm going to do any damage with the standard turbo anyway, that's a given! lol

                  some pictures of the practice session:

                  Road class car, no modifications allowed except induction and exhaust are free, as is suspension as long as it's using standard mounts. Good fun on a damp track, I'd have like it if it had been raining a bit more, the car is very controllable.

                  The car ran absolutely fault free - as expected.
