Matts Berlina Turbo Wagon

hey people this is my 88 calais turbo 5 speed. it started life as a N/A auto in white over silver.i bought it with the full respray in alpine white which tidys it up a bit.

it was then converted to manual and had KYb's fitted all round with King Spring ultra lows, adjustable panhard rod and sits on 18" VYSS rims. The interior is average as its what i like to call the "salmon" red and shows its age. It's pretty much standard apart from the Momo wheel and the panasonic dvd player.

then i converted it to turbo using the stock t3 turbo gear and a gktech intercooler kit. it runs 7psi on 9.0:1 compresion and goes pretty well.

heres some pics:











future mods when money is available include a stronger clutch, paint the sideskirts white, find some rear headrests hopefully, a turbo ECU and maybe a larger intercooler.

Yeah, tell me about it.....aw, its not that bad. If you're not worried about other things (like cruise control). The pedals are a bitch to do.

Car looks good though mate, keep up the great work!
