thought i might aswell start one Smile

bought the car around a year ago as a 1.5lsi, lil chavvish chrome 19's Shocked , eyebrows etc, quickly changed the wheels to some 15" dare alloys and looked like this for a while;





then tinted the windows, all dark tint, until i got pulled over and told to remove the front 2, which was a good thing as i think it looks better now.

Then came vision style indicators and wired them up usdm styley



and also jdm/usdm rear lights too



then got rid of the alloys, and had it on steelies for a good 6 months lol Cool


MOT time i had both rear arches welded in and smoothed over;




then in went the D16z6 engine




looks messy as that was just dropped in and started for the 1st time

also have a 2.5" bore system with de-cat on the car;



this was waaaaaaaaaaaayyy too loud so put the cat back in and angled the back box abit, dont have any pics of that..

and then i put some new wheels on along with extended lugs



having tracking done



as you can see the front bumper is fuked lol so have a new oem + type r style lip to go on..



goes into the bodyshop to have that fitted, bonnet, and jdm boot, and also have ordered spoon style spoiler, so once those go on thats the exterior sorted Smile

onto the turbo build, staying with standard enternals which are good for around 220whp, which will be around high 13's 1/4 mile, which is fine for me as a daily driver Very Happy

HF mani - dont have pics of it yet

boost pipes all bent and flanged for a greddy style bov



cometic gasket



ARP's



other little oem parts



also have arriving are intercooler, T28 turbo from a gtr skyline (anyone know how much standard boost they run????) and 450cc injectors

After seeing some pics of your car i know iv definately seen it around, i remember thinking it had a J's racing intake because of your bumper.

those white wheels look hot, how was it fitting the extended lugs as im thinking of doing this too.

Also where did you get your cometic head gasket from and how much was it, I will be after one for my build.

i wish i had a J's intake lol

extended lug nuts where same as normal ones expect you need a extended key to acutally reach the nut pattern

and got the head gasket + arp's from tunertoys.com as a deal they where doing... came to around £120ish delivered

and also plans are to lower it a lil more, anyone now if wheels would scrape? cause they are ET38 and 7" wide

not a bad deal on the arp's and gasket, il have to check that out. As for the catching of the wheels, the only way to find out is to do it, i had a set of ukdm itr rims (not sure of the offset) and i was down over 150mm with no problems
