Thought I would get a few last minute pictures up before the snow came again. Apologies for the poor cleanliness of the car in general but it was bloody freezing and weather was forecast for snow so took them quickly :)
O'right all. Had a little meet on the 11th of November with a load of mates, who mostly own Jap cars for a fast run of Snake's Pass and a hearty pub meal. Good enough range of car to hopefully give the recently quiet forum some discussion points!!!
Pics collated from different sources so don't hate. I will say the low sun and lighting made it very difficult to take pictures :beer::beer:
I bought the car in 2002 for £250 and have since spent an ever increasing amount of money on it, a year ago I decided to bite the bullet and as I had made a few contacts and friends in the right circles I booked it in for an engine rebuild but as things went on we found more and more things causing problems (rust mainly) and it turned into a bit of a nightmare. I really have a thing for classic motors so I pushed on and volunteered my services after work and at the weekends. It has been a long road but things are starting to come good and I am hoping to have it all finished for the show at the end of June. Unfortunately I cannot afford a respray and all the work besides so please excuse the mismatching panels.
It did look quite good...
OK, here is my attempt at Supercharging a Stock Australian Ford Falcon BA 4.0.
The only things I didn't have to change was the intake manifold & Blower.
Originally it came as a one-off Kit (but it was only half finished & didn't fit).
So, everything bar the intake manifold/runners had to be re-designed & remade or re-machined.
It cost me a Bloody fortune (at least twice as much as the original planed outlay).
i want to put these upgrades on my focus ST500 but dont know if they will be ok ...any commenst or suggestions would be a great help

Ok, first impressions . . Very nice :) not built quite as well as the beemer but overall not bad.
The engine (136bhp Diesel) is very responsive and the handling is very impressive. Interior is nice and solid, seats are very comfortable.
Anyway, the photos . . .
It looks very aggressive here !! :amazed:
not bad from side . . .
not sure from the back . .
but I like the interior !!
Well thought I'd get a bit of thread together rather than me keep updating my Hello thread.
Well as some of you know, I have a lovely JDM Impreza which I bought a couple of months ago and the bug has got me already and things have started to happen already.
This is the spec when I bought the car...
2.0 Flat Four
Simota Panel Filter
NGK PFR6B Spark Plugs
Miratec Silicone leads
Castrol Edge Sport 10W 60 Oil
Open mouth stainless decat downpipe (not fitted but included)
Racebox Full stainless exhaust system
Walbro 255L fuel pump
Graham Goode short shift
Valvoline Gear oil
Tein S Tech Springs
check out our new 'velle :)
this is how we bought it apart from lowering it 50mm (wow it was high !!)
inside is lovely
plans are : swivel front seats, table, stereo, side bars, better alloys and maybe 150bhp injectors and a remap :D
My car - Tiger Cub. Bought it some time ago - it had a standard 2 litre Pinto which I took out and replaced with a tuned 2 litre Pinto. Purchased from a reliable source the engine has been in about a year now. Very quick off the mark - right up my street. Haven't done a lot to it apart from buying some wheels and respraying them myself. I absolutely love the car BUT it now it has a rival in the shape of a Raffo Belva 2 litre Zetec. Cost me an arm and a leg - had to part exchange the wife to get it but unfortunately I can't keep both cars however much I'd like to so the Tiger Cub will very soon be up for sale. Will post photos of the new car as soon as I get my greasy mitts on it. Been lurking around the site for some time but now have...
Hey chaps been looking through some old photos i dug out from the attic found some right gems.
My old mans Triumph 2000 CC car it was his pride and joy was member of the car club and everything he changed the paint from original brown to a metallic blue. Does anyone have any images they remember growin up around a certain car? I used to specifically Remember the car having a Overdrive button on it haha
Ok so my mate has finally got the pics up, three of us sharing one camera. Nearly all of the rolling shots up to camp setup are taken by me, along with a few others.
The stupid lad ones are on Facebook AN' ALL THAT!

Obligatory Dover shot
Hey, only just joined up to the site, ive got a VW polo but since looking at all the posibilities im looking into buying a MK3 Golf TDI to start my project.
Just curious as to any pointers and tips anyone could give me as this will be my first project and would rather avoid newbie mistakes if possible :P
Any comments will be appreciated
So this is my toyota starlet from 1996 with a 4efte conversion with megasquirt ECU, TD40 turbo running 0.7 bar and 174 hp. :) Firstly pictures with new wheels mounted
And one with the old wheels..
The car has been modified so you can't see it's got a turbo engine mounted, even when you open the bonnet the original air filter is still in it's place, but with black pipes from the FMIC mounted behind the original air filter so you will have to go close up before you can see it's turbocharged. And the rear muffler kind of looks like the standard one, just a little larger and makes a great noise, not too loud either :) will post pictures tomorrow of the engine bay if people are interested :)
Pics of machine ;)
Just discovered this great forum, so I'll be looking for ideas to make my BMW 325xi more fun to drive. It's a 5 speed with all wheel drive, so the first order of business is to change all the fluids. I'm trying to find commercial equivalents to proprietary BMW fluids. I'm inclined to believe that high quality synthetic 75W90 gear oil can go in the trans, differentials and the transfer case.
My goal is to make this car last for a long time!
I have a 306 1.8 16v petrol meridian and am interested in putting a turbo on it or maybe a supercharger. i have no idea how to do either of these but i know i have the space under the bonnet. At the moment its pushing out 120bhp with its induction kit fitted. Any suggestions?
Hi i want to develop my Daihatsu Charade G 10 engine as a racing machine can you explain how do i do that thanks almost i done below mentioned things

Hello Dear friends I have replaced hi lift camshaft in my Charade G 10 car it is a CB engine when i do that i don't have a adjustable timing wheel so what i did was i advanced 1 tooth from camshaft wheel and timed the engine i think it is look like OK it has power and hi RPM please send me your value advises Thank you yours Manel
Hi and thanks for looking ! Just thought id share the engine note of a Busso V6 combined with a supasprint exhaust. The filming is pretty bad im sorry to say, your better off skipping to about 1 min through as i think starting the car with the cam inside, almost blew the mic ! It sounds much better when going, the rasp from the exhaust is awesome through tunnels...
But i dont know if i will eventually replace it so any opinions on it are welcome ! Hope you like it :P
I've been signed up a while but not got round to showing off my beast (yeah right) anyway here she is:
Mods so far:
Carbon Fibre Rear Veiw
Carbon Fibre Badge

Thats all for now anyway :)
....with my mates WIP 399hp Cossie'd Mk2 Escort, and another mates newly acquired slow-as-fook what-the-hell-is-that-front-bumper S15 Type R (basic mods Circa 260-270hp). Turned the boost controller back up as 22psi is JUST about useable on OTR now, whereas last weekend the RS would spin up in 4th on WOT :lol:
Took a few snaps on the phone for prosperitys sake:
Only cleaned the RS last night too and it's bloody filthy!
S15 is soon to have new wheels with some nice dish on the rear, and a standard/Aero front bumper plus some more boost so it doesn't keep getting in the way :lol:
All the Escort needs is a better paint job, rear diff plus better tyres and it's practically finished. Silly quick though, just plain...
Car when I first got it:
Headunit fitted ( Eonon d5107)
First wheel change:
Then Flyeyes kit:
Another wheel change and angel eyes fitted
Just bought some VXR springs so will be fitting them next weekend after the remap :)
Hi fellow Caddy owners,
We have just picked up our new caddy that will be used out on the road for mobile remapping and as a general works van. (Might even use it weekends it's that nice)
15,000 Miles on the clock and is like new inside and out, and she is DSG :blink1:
Here's a few pics, let us know what you think.
Getting a new car to replace the A3
It is a .....
wait for it.....
it's quite long.....
Audi A4 Avant 2.0 T FSi Quattro S line Limited Edition with 18 inch RS4 wheels, Full leather interior and dual zone climate control.
It looks good in a very dark grey and the Chrome around the grill has been blacked out. Front brakes are drilled, grooved and vented as standard.
0-60 7.1 Seconds 31 mpg! And it is a Quattro so it will have really good handling, the test drive was a sheer pleasure.
I take delivery on Friday, I can't wait and all pics are pre the final valet and preparation.
Few quick pics now 333 is sitting a bit lower on KW V1's and had a wash. Engine bay needs a clean though!
Could do with going a touch lower I think? Although it has settled a tiny bit lower since these pictures.
S'alright. Feels proper weird after driving the GT everywhere for so long. When I first got in it the gearstick throw seemed MASSIVE and reet sloppy because I'm used to my short-shifter. It feels proper slow atm too :lol: Steering though is beautifully weighted, has the best steering of any car I've ever driven. Comortable and has that "big car" feel, dead quiet and refined.
60mpg, £35 a year tax and cheap insurance isn't too bad either. Half-leathers, A/C, alloys, electric everything blah blah.

This is a car I have been wanting for a long time, I had the L6 but I never liked it engine wise. My brother traded a Nissan Patrol for this and I bought it from him. What we are looking at here is a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L V8 (who cares about fuel price!) with 177000km's on the clock.
The paint is not the best in the world with some deep marks on both the front and back of the car, loads of RDS's and loads of swirlmarks. It will be fixed soon, hopefully in the next week or 2.
Only 2 now, I'll take it out for a photoshoot when I'm finished detailing it :)
The Skoda still lives with me but I'm trying to sell it, If I can't I'll be fixing it's paint in the winter and taking the plates off! :)
Alright so, I purchased the new (not really new) Saab 900 this past week, just picked it up Wednesday, and let me tell you, fast fast fast!
It is a 1995 900 SE, 2.0T, 3 door coupe / hatch ! The previous owner is a friend I met through Saab events and saablink. He did a substantial amount of work to the car, all of which are very noticeable. The list includes :
-900 transmission swapped for a 1999 9-3 transmission, which is hydraulic versus cable.
-Upgraded shifter linkage, much sturdier
-Stock turbo swapped for larger TD04 turbo from a Saab 9000 Aero
-Full 2.5inch Flowmaster from cat delete back
-Stage 2 road tune from a genius by the name of Mike D.
-Custom intake piping leading to open air intake
