In this episode, I pull out a smoking turbo, do some wheel alignment, and go out for some more test drives.

In this episode, I start to look at the noise coming from the rear end of the car, and finally start to swap out the differential I didn't fit last year.

My step-dad also pops in to lend a hand.

In this episode, I continue fitting up the rear diff, make a stupid oversight that costs me hours of time to correct, and replace the front brakes with shiny new stuff!

In this episode, I finish putting the car back together, and go out to see if the new S14 differential and front brakes have made any difference at all to how the car drives, or if it was all a huge waste of time!

I've been busy integrating a lot of my dad's old tools and equipment into my home garage, so no progress on the Anglia this time. So, instead, I thought I'd give you a guided tour of the newly rearranged and tidied garage - as you'll probably never see it this clean and organised again!

I'm very jealous :shock:
I have no garage but I'd love one like Yours were You have loads of room around the car to do stuff 8)
Instead of having carpet on the walls to protect Your doors :roll: :roll: :lol:

The small car makes it look a lot bigger!! Though, yes, I am lucky to have a reasonable (by UK standards) garage :) And, being part of the house, I took the opportunity to install central heating, so it's never below 16 degrees, all year round! Then, 5 if the lights have been on for 5 minutes, the heating can come on, and bring it up to/maintain it at 21 degrees! Very posh!

My previous house had carpet on the walls of the garage! So I've been there and done that!

I've been talking about it for ages - but in this episode, the Anglia finally makes it onto the dyno!

So - how does it turn out? Did it make decent power? Did it all explode in a big fireball? You'll have to watch the video to find out!
