Alright well some updates since I havent done any for ages.

The car spent some time at Vulcan again, got the whole front end rebuilt, headlights totally re-conditioned, new LE front lip, aerial deleted, passenger door lock shaved, door handles colour coded and the fuel filler flap is now flush and doesnt have the little hole for your finger.

Most recent pics below:





The existing motor is about to be removed and the car sent to Vulcan again to have the engine bay done to a high standard - usual stuff, holes filled, things removed etc etc - so should have her back from that later October.

The new motor is just waiting on some key components to arrive and then that will start getting assembled as pretty much everything else is currently sitting on my pool room couch taking up room, so I will try and keep some updates happening on that.

Gearbox and tailshaft as well as diff are all sorted so just gotta talk to my interior man about what we can do with the car and go from there. That side of things is still a little while away yet, but its getting there slowly slowly.

Basically its gonna be a fully built motor, all the good sh*t in it, decent head/cam package with a 6Boost manifold to suit the T04Z and custom plenum, backed by a 3psd 450kw Keas box, running Microtech.

Cheers for the interest, and yeah Arie it is pretty normal I guess

Cheers Steve !!

I'm pretty much after a certain power figure, and the T04 does it quite capably.

I'm not after a race car, just a pretty tuff street car and I've always wanted 500ish at the wheels so thats what I am running with.

At this stage I am confident I will be nowhere near ready for Motorvation, so I am kinda hoping for the 1st quarter of next year at this stage.

Alright well time for a bit of update on the car:

Engine bay is basically bare metal just now, all holes, brackets, battery tray, factory dents etc have all been removed, filled or welded - just got to wait for the guys to finish and paint and thats that job done.

Front end is out of the car getting completely rebuilt so new bushes, rod ends etc etc and a new power steering rack is going in - no point putting the old gear back in.

Also got the Microtech the other day so few more parts to come together and the engine can start getting built
