    Intercooler is finally fitted

    As above. Ive got my intercooler on. I wanted to go for the discreet look so its been painted black but I decided to do that after I had ordered red silicone hoses . I think the plan will be to use the red bits I have up top with black pipes and then order up some new black ones for the bottom. Anyway, heres some pics;

    So this is it actually on the car






    I had to trim the bumper a bit and may have got a bit too excited that needs touched up


    And that little lug needs taken off to get the bumper to sit ok


    Also today I got my £20 rear beam


    And my yellowstuff front pads turned up. I ordered them from POTN on tue night at about half 8 and they were here on my doorstep at 9am this morning. Cant reccomend them highly enough. Great price too


    Comments welcome good or bad as usual
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    Always liked your car mate, now its just epic, if i had the mechanical knowledge i would do this but i think i'm going to buy one already made lol. But i love how your car has come from when it was the 1.6 as now its a sly turbo that to the naked eye doesnt look any different from what it was before, good work

    cheers mate.

    The last set of EBCs I had caught fire but they were just the crappy greenstuff. Hopefully these will last a bit better

    Thanks very much mate. Comments like that make it all worthwile

    The conversions not too hard tbh. Im not even going to pretend to be a mechanic but Ive fitted it, its been in for a month and hasnt dropped out so if I can do it anyone can. All it takes is patience, planning and common sense
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    It runs in the most basic sense of it turns on etc but with my lack of MOT I cant really drive it. Unlike everyone else on here I dont have a private test track in my garden so cant take it out to do 160mph on it .

    The BMX is my little bro's. Hes mad about jumping off stuff and trying to kill himself. He was jumping off a garage roof on it the other day onto a ramp that was so pikey even I wouldnt of built it

    The engine came with the pipework for the dump valve but the dump valve was missing (along with some other bits but thats a different story) so I aquired a dump valve in exchange for a bottle of fanta but it turned out that Id wasted the bottle of fanta because the spring in it is broken so as soon as I was boosting it was opening and letting all the pressure out . So now it has a contact lense holder in the hole until I sort a more conventional setup out
