    Well according to the previous owner (35yr old train driver) he reckoned it was 300 at the wheels 18 months ago, but Im sure thats a huge exageration.

    If I get 250, I will be happy. It has a kkk hybrid turbo, 2 chips, uprated actuator...unsure really.

    Wheels are off in 2 weeks for a complete refurb and re-wrap in some new toyo TR-1s

    WRC Type/style

    According to the owner he has RR graphs as well as stacks of receipts in his loft.
    I have a folder full of receipts etc, from 2000 - present, although he owner the car from '98.

    As I said, I doubt that figure.

    Got some of MIGs finest helping/doing the swap, so im confident

    Look forward to see some pics of the progress mate, hope it all goes smooth for you but that would be unheard of for modding

    Pictures will be taken throughout the conversion.
    May upload some pictures of the engine and box so far...and my other items I have been collecting for it.

    Its going to cause headaches, but we have plenty of aspirin here
