    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Well still going strong and yes I do still have the same car after 6 months lmao! Been doing a few more bits of body work as I'm slowly going round the whole car tiger sealing where I can to firm up the bodykit and stop a couple of rattles, and doesn't sound like a typical poor built MG...

    F1 technology for road cars!?!?!?!?!? Who do I give my money to?????

    More of the right up:--- You don't like hybrids you say. You miss the sound of the V10s you tell me. Get over it. Because here ladies and gentleman we have the best thing to happen to the performance engine since the V8. Everyone who has a passing interest in forced induction knows...

    F1 technology for road cars!?!?!?!?!? Who do I give my money to?????

    If this is what it say it is, could make turbo tuning very interesting! What are you thoughts? (I know a lot of people don't use facebook so I have print screened the article ;) )

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Cheers bud. Means a lot from you lol ;) ;) But yeh nearly got rid of all the jubilees now. Only 2 left to replace. Not exactly cheap those clamps to get proper ones lol. Found someone to swap my Forge bov for a Forge recirc. So will get the gains without the loud dump. Will still get one though...

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Well buggar me. She's finally up and running perfect again. What a nightmare! Ended up replacing the entire ignition system, which every part is uprated now, plus the fuel system. Had spark, had fuel, and perfect even compression across the board and turned out to be the last piece of the...

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    I would have, but she's developed a bit of a running problem which I'm trying to sort so shes in pieces again lol. Got spark, got fuel, compression is spot on and no boost leaks or vac leaks. But she'll fire into life, running but with an odd misfire. Then once warm and I turn it off, it wont...

    BOV - Why have you fitted one, apart from the 'look at me' noise?

    Hahahahaha yeh look at MG/R lmao!!! I've replaced a lot of plastic bits to proper metal stuff on my T16 lol.

    BOV - Why have you fitted one, apart from the 'look at me' noise?

    I fitted mine purely for the gains not the noise. My turbo conversion is a mafless, cable throttle operated engine and without venting the excess pressure somehow, the turbo would go a hell of a lot sooner than not having one with the extra tuning it has. Also, the Forge is a lot safer item than...

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Well. Amongst all the above, bye bye Baileys, hello Forge :) Also managed to get a nice chrome sparkplug cover and the rest of the piping to re plumb the intercooler :)

    PIC HEAVY!!! Well rather than showing you constant mediocre updates, I thought I'd save a few for one post lol. Been pretty damn busy with the Valeting business now the weather is getting nicer but still find time to play with the car lol. Now some of you (no names mentioned) wont like one of...

    Avoiding turbo lag

    I'm running a diff on mine. Makes FWD very fun to drive. Pulls out of bends soo much sooner than normal. Even getting on the power before my mates Scooby. But mine is running the T25 set to high boost, so kicks in around 2750rpms and goes like the clappers, and if I change gear with high enough...

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Doesn't take hardly any dosh to do most of the things I do buddy. Paint for wheels and bumper was only £30, and I've probably used £15 worth of products getting the paint back. But come on dude, you should know my track record of not spending lol ;)

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Small update for the bank holiday :) Decided to fit a new set of Magnacores, new plugs, new dizzy, oil and filter change, new head unit and Rainbow Audio speakers wired in and a few other little jobs. Also got my new oil catch tank. Matches the car lovely and being as it already has a couple...

    Newbie...NASP wanting to go Turbo.

    If you have a Galant, would it not be easier to buy a smashed up Galant VR4 for parts? Ok it's a 2.5 Twin Turbo but still is a great engine and you could also look into the 4x4 system ;) But as mentioned, go for an engine that is already turbo'd. Far cheaper and easier.

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    There is barely any difference between the T16 and the KV6 fortunately. This is why the 180 suspension or Derv suspension is recommended for the conversion. But to be honest, unless you sell the dirt cheap which I doubt you'll do, then i'll stick with the Xpowers ;)

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Cheers bud ;)
  23. BAD63R

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    How much you want for em, bearing in mind it MUST be a good price for me to change my mind about the Xpowers. I assume they are Civic ones aswell?
  24. BAD63R

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Yeh they do come around very occasionally. But bought em a while back for the ZS180 so they are going on this instead :) Oh and I paid £80 for them 6 months ago ;)

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    I try not to bud lol. It's been a mental few weeks to be fair. I'm full legit now with my valeting business which is taking off by storm. Had loads of paint restorations to do, plus trying to do the advertising, build the FB page and website, plus doing all I can with the car in the spare time...

    Cheers bud. It certainly looks the part now. I wish I had a few more pics of it nearer the time I had it as she was a sorry state on the out side lol.

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Right then. Pretty much got all the body work sorted now. Decided to strip off half the body kit as start again. Few bits resprayed such as rear bumper and a couple of wide arch pieces. Just one piece left to sort on the drivers side. Headlights now restored. Toyosport catch tank fitted. Wheels...

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Well that's the headlights sorted. Gutted that the lights are still R45 with the grey surround. So looks like a set of MG black surrounds are in order. Still, considering what they were like, they came up rather well. They had fly eye netting at somepoint which was taken off and has left the...

    Wow, what a mad week! Had to the car to play and also started up my new venture all legit. Quite exciting lol. Still managed to squeeze a bit of time in to "Coco" (the turbo) and quite pleased really for how little time I've had. Just in the bit of time I've had this week it's had... - New...

    Oh god, i've gone and done it!!!!...

    Well bit of an update. From it running and shaking like sh***ing dog, needed to investigate. Was a strange one to say the least as it ran fine just kangarood like a goodn below 2500rpms and was not easy to controle without riding the clutch which was not good. So after a bit of research, i found...

    Well first things first, as you can't drive a decent car that's grubby lol. Yesterdays pics were after a basic wash so I could show you a couple of shots. But after spending over 4 hours on it this morning. I think she deserves another showing lol. You couldn't see in the pics yesterday but she...
