ah ok, all on the standard manifold i take it?


---------- Post added 10-07-12 at 17:16 ----------

the pipe runs from the turbo and down the front so you cant really even see it...
But im not sure yet if i will seperate it yet as i would rather sell it as a complete setup..

---------- Post added 10-07-12 at 17:52 ----------

Proble starting to pull everything out tonight guys.

---------- Post added 10-07-12 at 20:44 ----------

also going to sell 18" rims off the car.

if you going highmount, you usually just use a 4 inch 45 degree bend and a silicon joiner ,don't know about sydney but in adelaide they are $50 from exhaust suppliers

yeah man proble is 87 i didnt even look to be honest, i will have to check today if i can wonder my hung over arse out the front lol.... the interior is in mint condition and so it the rest of the car the pics dont do it justice. I will be polishing up the rims again and getting the turbo setup finished then off to maatouks for a tune up on E85, Going for 400rwkw in her or so but will bee what happens. The car already doesnt have a problem lighting up the rear in top gear 5 up so will be good. I enjoy building cars so i am actually thinking off selling the car complete once done and starting another. The great thing about the car is the condition/no rust/engineered for all mods so its making me start to want to keep it haha... Also cheers for the comments guys on the interior i was actually thinking of taking it out of the car and putting another colour in but chose not to as it was the original interior from factory.
