I took all the brackets off the gearbox today,then cleaned the gearbox off with some engine cleaner, left it to dry and went over it with a wire brush on the drill. then started to paint it up with some silver engine paint.

Why is the aircon pump in there? Take it out and use the rallye aux system...weight saving! Gives an extra 10 bhp at least

im getting rid of all the air con rad and pipework. but putting the pump on as i got a new auxaillary belt on my xsi engine so may aswell use that one.

cant see it bein 10bhp difference to be honest on a 167bhp engine.
