Grunters new toy ( my bad )

Hey Guys,

As you know i made a thread of my old car i was building but once i found this i couldn't resist and wanted it. So as you guys can see i sold my White calais turbo for this. Pretty good actually the car has a lot more on it then the car was advertised with so i am happy with that. It drives so day but is a lag monster with the Gt42r on it but once on song it hums along good but the car was advertised with 600rwhp but me personally i don't think it has that much atm i think it was just a happy dyno i think. The body of the car needs a lot of TLC especially the holds on the car. The interior is in great nick just needs a tidy up and some bits and pieces, I will get a list of things i need for the car and if people have anything that can help or want to sell it would be greatly appreciated. So anyways as for the the drive line i have a lot of parts i am going to fit, and then screw the boost up in her. I will keep you guys posted with everything i do and once the car is tuned.

Cars new home...

Complete lower door molds
black lower skirts both sides
grey series 2 centre console cover
door window rubbers
grey centre console for shifter

Wow, that's different. That intercooler is massive! What are the engine and drive line specs / details?

after taking off the cam covers tonight the cams are HKS cams, i will leave them in then.
Will be changing the complete fuel setup so my 1800hp and ID2000's setup and selling the twin x 044 setup and 1600cc that is in it now. So if there is anyone interested let me know

well to be honest i have never dealt with them before, but will call them tomorrow. I am not trying to spend the world i just want to tidy it up, and make it run some good numbers. Trying to get the fuel gear done in the next 2 weeks and get it off to get tuned. Going to be putting 30psi and E85 in it then see how she goes.

What kind of power you expecting with 30 psi and E85? About 300Hp I would guess.
