One or two minor things to sort but it's now in running condition.

Nice subtle increase in power, feels good.

Autobox seems ok so far...

Out of interest what's the insurance like now? I'm sure I recall modded cars getting stupidly expensive a few years/decades ago.

Haven't done it yet, need to soon though. Only took it briefly round the local roads where there's no trouble to be had.
