Heres a few pics from me rebuilding an Turbo Ef

i got the whole car for 1100
Blown head gasket, as it stands the heads in the shop getting decked and reground/ new stem seals

ive practically taked all the seats out and taken the fabric off them,, yes i know theres a million metal clips but hey there pretty stained and i cant exactally dip the car in the dishwasher

just waiting for mum to go out shopping or , something to occupy her small rodent like brain so i can use the bath to soak the carpet, it seems like she foresees some impending doom if i even walk past bathroom with the carpet. Lolz ><

anyways im putting an AU gasket on it, leaving turbo off because the bearings are shot , will get set soon enough, Stock exawst for now, erm its been resprayed, has thease swirl marks from a buffer everyware , Idea's anyone???.

oh , Xr6 bodykit lolz Oversize injectors, Adj Reg, cant see any further mods,

i love it so fking much when i turn it to on and the fuel pump winds and u see the dash needles like power up then in an instant there like showing values none of his 10 minues to get fuel needle up, ,,,,,,, liked i so much after i stripped the engine i kept doing it and realised theres no injectors on the fuel rail and coincedentally pissing fuel all over side of block OOps lool

When are you expecting your new head to arrive?

C'mon, get it fixed up for the ST Helens meet 'n' greet..

I'm going to try and get my LTD ready for it too, the race is on 8-) ...Otherwise I'll just have to take my ute

Mate you know they make a felt gasket for the BBM, save you using that s**t gasket goo, of which you've used about a thousssssaaaannnnddd times too much, its gunna (gone) go squish and splattered everywhere internally, probably on the butterflies and all.

Idiot. Lol.

I know what metal is, I was asking what he said was made of metal..
Although when I re-read it just then I noticed he mentions it, a gasket.

Quick breeze-reading 8-)

Looks like your having fun there dude, and it also looks like you got a fairly decent buy for $1100 too.

Cheers
