Been killing some V-Power...

....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 deadly! :confused::confused:

Tell me about it! It was the source of constant abuse for the first week lol. On the upside it's low-mileage, relatively mint and has got a few costly HKS goodies bolted on. On the downside Aero bumpers are hard to find and/or expensive. Heard you could get them from Nissan for around £700 in primer but there's a huge wait from Japan.

He'd need the abuse just so he didn't start to like it! :lol: If it was me I'd just bite the bullet and get one. How much are the second hand bumpers coming in at?

Yeah from Nissan, so would I but he always dragged his heels when it comes to spending money despite earning the same as me. He's also missing his FRS and so keeps saying he might sell it.

As for second hand Aero bumpers, none of us has found one for sale anywhere yet! Genuine Nissan Plastic aero that is, easy to find crappy fibreglass ones and there is a Gen. non-Aero bumper on e-bay atm.
