    Its more common in the OLD SKOOL's for sure. The N/A route is just a half way point to the final project so i'm going to test the water and see what happens.

    Ultimatly i will be using 2x GT3071R's on the PPort and that will see over 600bhp

    hey people a minor set back funds never cleared in my account!!! but only a set back so the peripheral port in unfortunaly on hold for a while. I was hoping to have it done Aug in time for Rotorstock but now not likely.

    I have thrown a set of Teins HA's on the car as one of the HKS ones has blown a seal (only rear left). The teins are merely to get me out of a spot of bother personally i hate teins.... cheap and not very well built at all IMO. So hopefully they wont be on there long.

    What kind of difference does it make taking out the second row of butterflies? and is it just a case of sealing up the holes left by the bar with some metal sealant?

    It just stops disruption of air flow. I'm not saying this is the worlds best mod on its own but if you look at the picture below you will see that the pipe work for the Induction kit is nobily as where the pipes on the intercooler... thats alot of air bouncing around in different directions instead of one smooth flowing line.... The car is running a few degrees cooler that before and it just feels smoother in general.

    P2280001.


    Its better to tap and plug the holes left with a bolt but yes i use chemical metal.

    Hey people, i have had no time to do anything major to the car at all....

    Here's a couple of pics of the New Drift/Circuit Tie rods. They are loner and much stiff, due to thickness, that the stock ones. They also give more angle.

    Very easy to change. You just have to be patient with the rubbers on the steering rack... unless you get new one thn you just cut 'em off :chat

    Old ones

    That looks really good mate, I like it a lot. The GT kit is beautiful!

    You need some new wheels to really make the most of that aero now.

    Outstanding colour choice. I love the split behind the door.

    The Aero kit is awesome and really sets the car off. Can't wait to see some pics of the car finished.

    Really nice work.
