    Update...My Coupe Turbo...Pics included

    Ive owned the coupe now for a year, had lots of problems with it, but now its running like a treat thanks to my good mate Tom (turbotom)
    over the past year, done so much on it...to much to list to be honest lol.
    recently had the top half rebuilts...work done.

    New valve stem seals
    Xev cam, which is defo worth getting done.
    Performance thermostat from Chris Astley
    Vxr Turbo Fitted
    Oil Change
    Xenons 6000k
    Gauges
    enlarged tophat from lOaDed...
    Water cooling mods...Ideas inspired by Noble Motoring
    Painted rocker cover
    and Decided to fit GSI Bumper with sumting lil different

    being built:



    above, the oil on the valves, the problem which caused a lot of smoking to my car :-(







    Pics below as decided to give it a wash and polish today:

















    and finally, connecting the IPF system




    Only on stage 1 at the moment, 245bhp with 260mn...im struggling with the 290nm at moment as bringing up my eml and traction control for some reason which car is built to run stage 3...might need to give regal a call as noticed some new maps on there with codes...

    Future plans:
    -Alloys reburb and painted in a nice black...
    -Brake calipers and part of the disc where it rust painted in the same colour as rocker cover.
    -Bonnet and rear bumper resprayed along with dents removed...
    -and lower a little more in time for pvs

    what you guys reckon, wanted to do sumting different really

    p.s Major thanks to Tom, who's coupe is yet to been placed on here, so i might have to do something about that shortly lol
