    It's currently waiting for forged pistons and con rods. As it cracked a piston, possibly due to knocking.
    Bloody hell Andy. I saw that on Instagram but didn’t realise it was yours!

    Not what you expect at 36k miles.
    the J vxr is piss poor build quality wise anyway and now it seems the engines aren't exactly solid either , yes you upped the power but it should be able to take it at such lower miles

    Started with light smoke and then became thick white smoke, also error code P0303 - misfire on 3. But I did not drive it far so I was lucky.

    What issue did you have? Smoking or any misfires?

    the ringlands are quite weak on the NFT pistons, especially when the power has been increased

    Poor mapping is the usual cause

    This is the Enhanced performance system. This is it, as the pipes are behind the rear bumper.
    Also get the powerflex mounts as well.

    What system is this buddy? And what tips do you have on? 👍

    In my opinion, yes. I did not think that the Ferodo DS2500 pads were going to make a big difference. But you press the pedal and they bite, very sharp.
    I also had Goodridge brake lines fitted as well.
