Hi guys/girls

Thought I may as well post this in a thread of its own now. (Dont think I did one in the past, couldnt find it?)

Anyway I havent been on here in yonks so thought it was about time I gave an update.

Some of you may know me from other forums, names Bethany (20) and I own a Pinked up Eb S pak in biscayne blue.
Most people know my car as the 'barbie' car which has been around for awhile now :)

Here are some pics/updates.

Shortly after it was lowered:

Interior:

Image

Exhaust: catback exhaust and 4" dumper

Image

How it sits now:

Image

Under the bonnet:T04E with a log manifold and 38mm wastegate, non intercooled for now, running 3-4psi until new gas stuff gets fitted then it should run more

Image

Few other things are:
-garnish with pink strips
-its now on LPG
-boot install almost done, had to re-do it since being put on gas. Of course its all in pink fluff :P
-Chrome window lining on exterior
-Pink rocker cover/turbo (thanks to Paul @ CVE Performance!)

I think thats all for now :)

Comments welcome. Will post updates once the new gas bit has been put on and I finish the boot (which only has a few minor things to be done, I am just lazy :) )

Nice simple turbo setup you have there. What kind of gain did you get from it?

Update: Got the new gas gear on and its running muuch better. Thanks Paul!

Unfortunately I was one of the 250 odd cars that got canaried 2 Friday's ago :( Wrong place at the wrong time as I got done for 'ground clearance' and my car has been that height for almost 2 years!

Its off to get a roady Monday so hopefully it will be back and up to scratch by All Ford Day!

Haha yeh I am kinda over the whole pink interior theme. Was good when it was a first car for a P plater to have fun with but hopefully this year I can move onto bigger and better things! No P plates FTW! Getting older sucks though :(

I will have fun dosing people with this until then :D

Let us know what gets picked on in the roady.

As you need to temporarily raise your suspension height, I have a set of Low Springs (King Spring Front Low's, Whiteline Rear Low's) and Monroe GT Shocks that you can borrow if you like just to get you through :wink:.

Thanks heaps :) I think I have some lying around but will keep ya in mind.

I know my indicator will get picked on, has some water in it. Dam after market clear indicators! And also the exhaust as after the turbo was put on we did a bit of a chop. Hoping I can find someone that will let me off.
Vic Roads tend to only look at what you got done for so as long as the heights fixed, I should be sweet (touch wood!)
