    plans are to strip interior then bucket seats,harnesses,hydro and then get to some dwyb days,also ive got to check diff as it spins up both wheels,but no noise when turning or driving slow in to car park space so cant be welder,so im going to jack car up and see what is written on diff as could be Lsd (very rare) previous owner told me it had a different head on it but i cant confirm also it has a 3inch exhaust system it is very loud,may be to loud.

    I would do one thing mate, work on the cooling system like change the water pump etc as I had one of these and the water pump blew up randomly on the motorway which took out the bottom end.. :(

    Lesson learnt from my side so learn from my mistake

    Nice starter, may struggle a bit on power, but that'll just force you to push harder and learn quicker ;)

    must admit did think that but once i have got used to the car and am capable to hold a decent drift,i will more than likely do a engine swap
    thats if i havent binned it to the side of a crash barrier lol.
