    Put on Barbour jacket, switch on heated seats and go for some mad max style comfort skids! Looks like a pretty tidy install too.

    With V8 it's the Country Gentleman's choice skidder.

    Some lorries have front bumper exit exhausts as standard if they have certain hazardous loads etc on back.

    Fair few tuned road cars like it too.

    It's the noise that will cause you more issues, and maybe the height being a pedestrian danger.

    A friendly MOT person will usually allow a lot more than that though.

    My friendly MOT tester doesnt mind side exits as long as they're behind the front wheels. As with most things to do with MOTs, its down to whoevers doing it to decide

    Charisma is either attracts people or repulses them.

    I would put this to you;

    What do you gain out of bringing someone down?

    I stopped posting here a long time ago because of the people the sport started to attract.

    No, cant afford chlorofrom. I find a punch in the throat is just as effective

    I like it! Nice fast turn around also, how was the wiring? I'm guessing very minimal as it the engine is carbed, do the instruments and warning lights etc work?

    This is proper bad ass, reminds me of the volvo i built once, but this is far better as its turbo'd!

    Dont no why people have to look into things so much! some people like building things that are diffrent, and far from the normal s13 build! And thats why its so cool ! f**k the haters! This is what we need to see more of ! like you do in sweden/poland ect !

    On another note is that a spark plug i can see in the exhaust ?

    Haha! I hope so, manual choke for extra pedestrian burnage!
    Awesome build and fair play for turning it over in a week! That's the sorta thing I'd spend 6 months staring at a shell and an engine before asking on a forum for some internet heroes advice. Dare I say it much like most of the ill advised posters on this thread
