I am still gob-smacked you did your own callipers AND now the hubs. I think you have a first there for the rotors. Any chance you can make a set of spokeless rims so you can see the callipers and rotors- now there is a challenge!
Looking fabbo BTW.

Luke, video looks and sounds great,
I noticed your air filters, as that's another thing I'm looking into, without disrupting the airflow, not sure yet but may make an air box
Yes My current air filters are looking very sad. I wasn't going to fork out for something decent until I'd actually tested my setup. I'm working on installing 2x Pipercross PX600 filters on it at the moment. I'm just waiting on some fittings. I will post pics when they are done.
V8 supercars used a very similar setup to what you have except with the injectors aimed down the trumpets. They just enclosed the whole thing in a box.
BTW a tuning tip. Get the airflow balance pretty close by using a flow meter, then do a few highway runs to fine tune the final balance using the colour of the spark plugs. Don't get discouraged if it drives like complete crap the first time.

That looks pretty good Luke, well done, I haven't had much time to play around with mine,
I was thinking of possibly making 8 spacers in between the trumpet and throttle body to incorporate a filter, just not too sure how that would effect the air flow,????
The longer you make your runners will shift your power band lower as well so be careful how thick you make you spacers. My throttlebodies had a provision to clam a hose or filter to so I am using silicon hose with a really thick T-bolt style hose clamps to hold the whole thing together.
Funnily enough on the shake down run will the new filters I blew out an exhaust gasket on a part power take off. So now the car is undriveable until some copper gaskets I ordered show up.
