    Talking project coupe-sleeper

    bought this car in mint condition fsh 50000 miles and already running eds 3.5
    new vxr turbo 500 miles old
    vxr injectors and maf
    full scorpion turbo back exhaust
    tx autosport fmic
    regal power pipe
    lowered 30mm

    this is how she looked when i got her






    first thing i wanted was a gsi bumper which i bought from lmf with hatched grill, had wheels redone gloss black at romax in stockton, got some angel eyes off fleebay too






    im not a fan of cream, i knew they were going to go when i bought the car but it was a steal so had to buy






    was going to get interior retrimmed but bought these retrimmed gsi recaros off turbo chirs in absolute mint condition with no wear anywhere

    bought forge dump valve and recerc valve.

    next i got rid of the scorpion for a cobra 2.5in system

    booked into regal to have eds inlet mani and tophat fitted, fse power boost valve and regal pump






    cars off the road now until august no updates for a while but first ill order the tx larger cooler and bigger power pipe from regal while im away with a full 3in turbo back cobra system which will get fitted as soon as i get back.
    after that its rebuild time followed by garrett upgrade 2012

    got a custom custom tubular manifold coming in a few weeks a lad has made up at his race shop.

    same design as courts but grade 321 stainless steel, 3mm thick tubes with mega welds. 48mm runners equal lenght. 12mm flanges so should last long
