Ok so after working on my car from Wednesday evening till Friday evening...I managed to get all the jobs done that I wanted :-D ...
EGR change with restrictor plate
gearbox oil change
intercooler change with silicone hoses
new intake pipe after finding old one had a massive split in it (pipe between MAF sensor and turbo)
radiator change and bleed of system
MAP sensor change
blackline headlight upgrade
morimoto d2s bi xenon upgrade
air filter change to k&n panel filter
Check out the pics in my photobucket page....more pics to upload on outcome of headlights.

I can't begin to explain the difference all of the changes have made to the drive of my car.
gearbox changes seem so much smoother
there are literally no flat spots now through calmer acceleration where their used to be a jump in boost around 2200rpm and 2700rpm before
The silicone hoses have greatly reduced lag due to being stronger and not expanding as much under boost
Air filter I feel aids in all of the above and obviously not having a split intake pipe means what the maf sensor reads is actually going into the engine now...massive reduction in black smoke under hard acceleration
The front end look of the gt is greatly improved through spray painting the headlights and the bi zenons not only look great, they fit really well after modification and the light output is amazing. ..so much better than standard and on full beam....just WOW! very easy to re wire guys...Please don't be put off from this mod!
Please...I would love to here your feedback and ideas on where I go next. I'm currently looking for alfa mito brembo calipers to directly bolt on
Then I'm looking at a Remap to finish her off.
Be nice to hear off some members here as I am new to this site.
Oh and to the previous member to comment. ..haha that is the butyl sealant for the headlights...great stuff.
