Felany's Calais Build

Well to start, I have been building my white sl for about 2 years. Stupidest thing i ever did was strip it and will probaly regret it forever.
I then lost interest for a while till vlwagonit put this blue shell up for sale.
Brought it as a rolling shell, basically complete apart from from motor and box. Over the last few weeks have got this licenced with the turbo motor and put my plates on it. Swapped my brakes and suspension in, just need to swap diff now. And finish the motor and piping, few pics and specs below -

Motor -
Stock bottom end
Avo stage 2 cam and head ported
GT35r (0.7front, 0.86 rear) low mounted on stock manifold with 20mm spacer and braided lines

Exedy clutch and MX7 gearbox
Nolathane bushes


Body -
Mitsubishi electro blue over asteroid silver
Waiting for a new genuine calais grille atm
Polished allen key bolts down fenders
Solex door locks (going back to standard ones soon)


Interior -
Standard calais interior
Rear venetian
Eclipse CD player, amp etc
2 spitfire gauges
Autometer A/F gauge
Custom trimmed and boxed boot(still have to install)

Fuel/ECU-
660cc siemens injectors
14mm fuel rail
Undercar surge tank
Stock intank pump, 044 external
Haltech e11 ecu and haltech loom

Other -
Battery in boot
Wiring hidden in guards
Momo Steering wheel




Day i got it -





Had to put venetian on straight away





Painting motor and doing turbo lines -





Motor ready to go in -





Installing motor -





Cooler installed -
