    Ordered my Garret turbo today

    Thank god for the internet. Ordered my Lumma vented bonnet yesterday (well somebody else did for me) + a few other bits, and today ordered a 350 bhp Garret turbo conversion .....just need to find somebody to fit it now when I'm back on the 11th April.... .

    Then it's on with internals, gearbox, lsd, and a few other bit I've got up my sleeve, just hope it can be all done for PV.

    Unsure about the vented bonnet etc ... not 100% keen ion changing the 888 exterior (The BTCC cars never had them )

    Though I am liking the sound of the turbo conversion

    They both have to go hand in hand unfortunately, need to disperse that heat somehow....especially if I do go all the way with the power. Anyway - it's cheap enough to buy a new bonnet later on, or may keep the OE one.

    I don't buy in to all that keeping it std thing... it's your car not 888's you paid for it Sounds meaty

    Great to see that your plans are coming together - you'll be leaving me truely well behind now....

    The DB9 is still a regular around here - only fair that you take it on again although hopefully no police cars this time....

    ...and no I'm not going to take mine up the strip now
