My daughter calls it Toothless the Dragon: My ‘95 TT Z

Then I got home and found more goodies had turned up.

My back boxes turned up, Vibrant Street Power silencers (3” inlet 2x2.5” outlet).

 

they’re REALLY nicely made and look awesome with the APR tips.... can’t wait to hear what they sound like

Hopefully the first of many parts deliveries turned up to day. My Haltech elite managed to win the race with my engine and turned up first, aswell as the exhaust tips for my custom exhaust system

Little bit of progress yesterday reassembling the engine. Waiting on a few parts to turn up that were missing before I can put the engine back in the car.

 

I also pushed on with sound deadening the interior of the car. I took JoelyP’s recommendation and went for Silent Coat sound deadening. Hopefully it’ll do a nice job of cutting out some of the road noise for the 295 section rear tyres!

What size pack did you buy of this sound deadening? I see they’ve got about 3-4 different size packs on their website. Might do mine over summer.

2mm 40 pack. I’ve used 22 sheets so far, so should comfortably have enough to do the drivers side floor under the seat and around the rear wheel wells with what I have left

Great, thanks for that . Haha I also don’t like the road noise but love the exhaust note especially when flooring it . Hopefully this stuff will help.

A few more little jobs ticked off today. First up was the steering rack bushes. At a glance they looked ok, but on removal, they were clearly a little worse for wear. Easy job while the engine was out, so replaced with Energy Suspension bushings from Luke

Then I should have cracked on with the sound deadening but just wasn’t feeling it, so ended up giving the viscous fan a good clean and removed the melted on black plastic from where the shroud had previously shifted and rubbed against it. Pleased to find no cracks in it and I think it looks virtually new after

Another little job done.

 

I made up a mounting plate for both the oil cooler and the Improved Racing remote filter mount.

 

This is the “final draft” made with some Ali checker plate, which to be honest, is a bit flimsy (but free). I managed to get hold of a bit of aerospace grade 1.5mm ali sheet that I’ll make the finalised version from.
