Didn't fully understand what it did or the benefits, I put a shiny welded manifold on and clean hybrid turbo, all the oil and vapour is now through the catch can so its only clean air going through the turbo, intercooler and manifold. The w&m seemingly cleans the pistons etc and keeps it that way, it will be on a switch so on demand for any spirited driving - Mike reckons a result somewhere between 270 and 290 with the torque staying at 580nm ish
For some reason that even Courtenay Sport don't understand the dap-r springs were stupidly low especially the rears, they had no issue swapping them for KW estate springs, it sits a lot better now and is much more comfortable - when all this was going on I got a set of Eibach Pro Kit springs for a very good price and will fit them for comparison, if they are no use I will keep the KW's and sell the Eibachs.
It still has the old bushes in, kept them in so the powder wouldn't make the hole smaller, got caught with that when the rarb was done, the new powerflex bushes will be fitted along with the radiator ones- once the brackets are on the right way lol - they were powdercoated separately and the guys just stuck them back on.
I was surprised with the dap-r as well.

Well as some know the 156 has met an end after succumbing to tin worm and all the other issues that were still needing done, so its currently sitting on axle stands waiting for another few weeks to get what I can off it and then send it away to be cubed and turned into cat food tins or whatever...
About a month ago my car brought up the service vehicle soon on the dash and lost power, so I assume thats limp mode, had it plugged in at my local garage they said it was over boosting and that it was likely down to the turbo so I've had the turbo looked at and reconditioned by a specialist...
