8psi so early in the rev range is pretty good, will be interesting to see if it will hold it thru to red line. I hope it does!

Cheers

Congrats again

update... hmm. had a kid, got screwed over by housemates, moved house, bought turbo laser prefer the laser over the fairlane so motivation is killed.


ill get it to a point it can be rego'd then most likely sold with mod plate.

it needs the interior bolted in (seat belts etc) spark plug leads and water feed lines done to the turbo and wastegate reference hose then slap a tune in and its good to go.

No motorvation? - Part it out, rest to strippers. Go buy something other than a ford for shame, and be gone LOL.

Hows the kid going at least?

what an absolute tragic drawn out build that amounted to nothing

even worse than the fella with the M12 charged EA/EB/EL

this is what happens when you fund a build with Wednesday's payments

yeah the little one is out of the danger zone now. it was pretty touch and go for a while. im sure once its on the road ill change my mind about it and want to keep it. we will see how things go. the laser could end up a track car (just worried about stacking a rare car)
