Fuel leak now sorted and went for a 50 mile drive this afternoon with problems at all, aside from having to keep below 4500rpm.
Changing at 4000rpm is my target and even with no boost the engine requires minimal throttle to zip up to that self imposed limit.
HKS F-Con iS piggy back is unplugged totally and the engine starts instantly and idles smoothly.

Just got no power steering even after cleaning every possible plug.

Is anyone going to JDM who has a spare power steering module I could borrow to check if mine is the issue.
I did Comnbe whilst still running in my Rebuild and like you sticking to 4K RPM...

I can tell you that it gives you a very false sense of the actual "speed" you are doing, and haring into Quarry in 6th at 4K is still 80MPH... Which I rather forgot to scrub off... Brown trouser moment indeed, sir!!

Great fun. Was a little concerned about Combe, what with its reputation, but was excellent to drive. I was probably not the fastest out there but was having a blast.
