    In this episode, I try to make the interior a little nicer, and quieter, with the addition of carpet and some underlay for sound insulation.

    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’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!

    Hopefully you’ve all seen the last video, where these were flashed up on screen. Thought you’d like to have a closer look at the results of the power run I managed to video.

    As I said in the video, this was just a very quick rough fiddle of the power area as I ran out of time on the dyno, nowhere near finished with the tuning – but even with the massive overfuelling, high inlet air temperature and no timing changes, the power figure is still pretty impressive, hopefully a bit more still to be eeked out of it!

    In this episode, I try to do some testing on the chargecooler system, which was shown to be wholly inadequate when on the rolling road, to see where it needs some improvements.
