had to laugh actually, i went for a cruize on the weekend. pulled up a set of lights beside a riced up lancer,plastic s**t hanging off it everywhere and subs buzzing every panel off it. these two kids looked at me and yelled out some s**t, dumped the clutch and made the front wheels sqeal like a school girl.
f**k i thought, by the other side of the intersection they were mine, blow off valve goes off right beside them, they s**t, i laugh. Next set of lights we come too they now have respect for "old school".


hahha not matter how many times ya do it u just never get over flogging rice!

thanks for the compliments. no there not polished floorboards. i hav some cheap lino on the workshop floor, its so oil and coolant doesnt soak into the concrete leaving stains. with the lino it can be wiped/soaked up.

this is actually the 2nd turbo conversion on the xp, the previous was intercooled, it was where the air filter is now. yes i do plan to intercool it again as soon as i figure out where i can put the sucker

was gonna say, floorboards in the shed? that takes it a little bit to far me thinks.

beautiful car, good to see something different, and out of the square, theres alot of XP/XM with 302/289's etc. which is good, dont get me wrong, but turbo old school six is mad.

would be nice though, a service pit covered with polished floor boards..

alot of people have said to me over the years to put a v8 in it, quite frankly i would rather play with a turbo six.
