    Fitted mine in the top left behind the grill, then made a bracket for the wired controller socket to poke out between the grill. Runva XP11 Premium on mine as well.

    I like that white bull bar. Mine's black. Hmmm. Chawton White in a spray can?

    Before I had a Land Rover I did not have any torque wrenches. Now I have three.

    Removal was ok but was not very good to use on installing new ball joint as it was a PITA to get them lined up and straight to press back in!!!

    I'll be buying a G clamp type off eBay to do the other side!

    More Winch

    Progress on the Install

    Cleaned, ground back a couple of rust spots and filled the six holes in the bullbar from previous owners front mount towball illegality.
    Painted the bar.
    Refit the bar and managed to get everything to line up.
    Redid the spotlight wiring connections. Properly with solder.
    Mounted the solenoid too far back and couldn't get the grille back on >

    Runva install protip: Connect the winch motor earth cable BEFORE mounting the winch. Ungh. Tomorrows problem.

    Should be done in one more day, after I go pick up a new battery with a higher CCA rating that won't void my warranty.....

    Funtimes!

    Fitted a TRS chipped ECU last night and did 270km on it today.
    First it was boost cut surging like mad but a tweak of the wastegate rod fixed that.

    Goes bloody well now! Acceleration when overtaking is transformed...throttle response is sharper...pulls up hills sooooo much better!

    Fuel consumption was smack in the middle of my average range...actually it was a bit better than my long term average!

    Im chuffed!
    Now I need to get my EGT gauge ...

    I did the same a couple of weeks ago. I'm wrapped also. I didn't have to alter my turbo at all tho - strange.
