VL30ET's Grey Exec Turbo

Hi everyone, my name is Lachy and this is my car. I bought it off eBay for $650. It had faded tail lights and paint, but the body was straight as a die and had nearly no rust. It now has a turbo conversion, stage 2 crow cam, adjustable rising rate fuel regulator, ARP head studs, 1.3mm MLS-R head gasket, 2.5" exhaust, turbo auto and S1 Calais seats.

Unfortunately the 22 year old fuel hose decided it didnt like 6 bar of fuel pressure and went POP, spraying fuel everywhere and the engine bay went BANG! up in flames. So now I have a mission ahead of getting it back on the road.

BEFORE:




AFTER:




I will uptdate this thread as I make progress.
