not too sure to be honest mate.my 99 turbo seems to take 6 to 10 mins on the drive before she reads the half way mark.i have never had juddering from power steering before so i would look into that a bit more.

I got my power fc from nengun in japan and then got andy forrest in port seton to map it for me. All in it came to just under 800 quid. Well worth it.

Going to have to go back soon though to have the map tweaked for the front mount intercooler but it only costs 190 quid for remaps once the first is done.

Wheels are actually dare motorsport pff7 replicas, like how they look but the spokes catch loads of stonechips,eventually i want something different on it if i keep it.

Suspensions a koni sport kit but wouldnt really recommend it shocks are inserts rather than a complete new strut so ya have to cut the old strut bodies take all the insides out drill bottom of strut and bolt through base into insert to hold it there-dont fit great at the top though theres sleeves supplied with em but they`re crap-havent ever bothered with geometry check/droplinks etc as the play albeit small spoils things anyway-been looking at kyb agx adjustable struts an maybe keeping the koni -40mm springs that ive already got-got mixed reviews on coilovers on scoobys from mentioning on scoobynet the other wk.
