Sleeper Vee Elle

Greetings all

Not new to forums, been posting on my cousin ledouches account for some time now, you should be able to tell my posts from his if the spelling is mostly correct

Anyway my VL is an ex NA auto, Alpine white over MX grey, has had high comp conversion with all original VLT parts so looks completely stock under the bonnet, only mods so far are boosted to 10psi and 3 inch dump pipe to atmo (lol)


(on the right, the ****ter on the left is ledouches )

Apart from that its now got all VLT running gear including a MX7 5 speed, exedy clutch, 28 spline disc brake rear end, VLT Brake calipers on DBA slotted rotors all round powered by a VLT/PBR master cylinder, New alloy radiator, K&N panel filter, still has original factory number plates. On the inside is all standard apart from a new(old) Momo steerin' wheel and an Autometer Carbon series boost gauge.

Future Plans are to keep stock ride height and not slam huge wheels on it, going to keep the chasers and build a decent engine to slot in it sometime next year, probably aiming for at least 300rwkw with that but we will see how it goes.

Cheers

Yeah unfortunatley i dont think i'll be using that one in this build, i'll either sell it if someone is interested in it or keep it for a very special build i have planned for 2017

Its a Garrett GT4202 if you know anyone who is interested in buying it, 1.05 rear housing.
