Bonnet vent fitted. Can't say I'm too happy with it, but I guess you get what you pay for. The template provided is the wrong scale, its just enough smaller to make it not worth using. With the holes for the bonnet stops lined up the hoop doesn't quite fit in. On top of that, the supplied fasteners are shit. I stripped the allen head on two of the bolts. One of the bolts has no thread on it at all.

Anyway, it seems to be working, you can feel a decent amount of heat coming out of it when its warm. I think I will pull it off at some point though and remove some more metal and get it flowing better.

Not much to update, just been driving it.


Pulled the winch out for a service and to move the solenoid up into the engine bay. Going to get a slim line plate for the front, will mount it to the grill over the cutout for the old controller.

Also fitted a provent 200, just needs to be plumbed. I will be disabling EGR at some point. Going to replace the cooler lines, clean the cooler and intake manifold.

Got some new tire's fitted, KM2 285/75R17. Little bit more height, but narrow enough to run on the stock offset. Had to trim a bit off the wings on the winch bar to clear. Might hit the swaybar at full lock/full compression but nothing sharp that will cut the tire up. Rears will rub when compressed on the inside, should be sweet though.

Also played with the front sway bar links, drivers side is bolted in permanently now. Passenger side has two quick release pins. I was having issues with clearance at full compression/lock with both ends removed and strapped to the chassis. Now the swaybar should just move out of the way.

Be careful of disconnecting only one side of the sway bar. When fully flexed it is possible (depending how much flex you have) that the side that is not connected will come into contact with things (swaybar moves down with full droop of the connected side while the axle is coming up to full compression).

I have found that the best place for the sway bar to sit when discoed is parallel with the ground. I have drilled a hole in the front face of the upper spring perch and just cable tie the sway bar on both sides to sit there, does not touch anything now.

No worries, ill keep an eye on it. I flexed it the best I could using an engine crane to check it, but couldn't get it on the bumps.

Went out to Ripley for a play, only lasted a few minutes before my power steering started dumping fluid. Heaps of grip from the tires at 20PSI though.

Moved the fixed end of the swaybar from drivers to passengers side. With it on the drivers side, when the front left was compressed the sway bar itself was hitting on the draglink. The tierod is in the firing line now with full compression on the right, but I don't quite have enough travel for it to be an issue... yet.
