Cheers ben why are you selling your car as for Spankee
She is in bits yet again she is now due for the bodyshop on the 26th of this month at last... am going for a colour change car is just a shell on wheels roll on summer time next year.......
Hi james as for turboing the the 1.6 8v i used a adapter to manifold to turbo which allows me to use a bigger unit ie Garret T3 and using a -31 actuator. To lower the comperession i used a a customer made sandwich plate and two head gaskets which is very strong .that allows me to run hight boost it allso has a extra fuel switch and modded airflowmeter with cusom pipe work for intercooler and one of made exhaust system looking back at it now it was quite a easy conversion to do as it chases 16v motors up to 110 mph and does qtr mile in 15.53 with seveteen inch wheels on car has been very reliable done one clutch so.....
Steve, since going back to uni (final year) I have realised that I just dont use the car anymore. It has been great fun to own during my year work placement and I'd love to keep it but I just can't afford it now. The car isn't exactly perfect, but the bodywork is spotless with no rust.
Its up for 4200 (the ono bit didn't come out on the ad!!) That price will drop to sell - but obviously I'm not gonna give her away!!
It'll be a sad day if I see it go, but it'll probably be for the best. I'm sure I'll be back with something once I've graduated
Good news that you're finally getting the colour change...you'll have to send me some piccies when its all sorted.
