gmjet's maroon calais turbo

LATEST PICS AT BOTTOM OF PAGE!!!

Hey all, i was having a look at some of the vl's in this thread and thought i'd post mine up.
whats on the car at the moment is:
hybrid cooler with custom 3" piping
keas jatco stage 3 semi auto gear box
tranny cooler
3" exhaust from turbo back
front brakes are slotted with vt calipers
rears and slotted and cross drilled
shaved door locks
running 9 psi
king spring super lows all round
polished calais
at the moment the car is a stocky but over time more and more will be done to it.

UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE!

This is what the car was like when i first got it.





After a week of owning the car i went down to autobarn and bought this Monza intercooler kit. It didnt really work out too well, i didn't like it. It didnt sit rite, had way too much rubber and looked pox so it was gone in 1 week.




After i got rid of the monza kit i figured if im going to do it i might as well spend a little bit more and get it done rite. so i took it to my mechanic and told him to do a custom job and a major service on it. So i went out and bought a new hybrid intercooler, i bought a smaller size then the old one. they did the piping 3 inch everywhere with aluminium and cut and welded away lol and this is the result... which i am very happy with! i also got a new steering wheel and a boost gauge the only bad thing about this was my car was at the shop for 7 WEEKS! but i was happy with the work lol.






here are the brakes on it.



After getting the car back i did little things to it to get it looking a little bit better. i lowered it resprayed a few things under the bonnet, polished up the piping a little bit, put a 12 inch sub and a amp in it and removed the ugly purple tint.

Nice colour, looks very straight, its been sprayed yeah?
I can only guess what that 2nd cooler piping kit cost you? Must have been sh1tloads! Looks like top quality work but the 1st kit looked pretty good man?...

they suited alot better then i thought they would, they match everything, the black center matches the window frames, and chrome matches the chome around the car, looked really good in person.

try'd on a mates 20s

thankx for the pics man, the black actually suits it quite well something different and contrasts with the maroon/silver and as you said black window frames nicely
