My personal choice would be a Honda Civic EG6/EK4/EK9 if I wanted FWD. I know they handle well and are relatively easy to maintain. That or a 106 GTi, I've always had a soft spot for them.Yeah just a few track days here and there, and the fact that my first car was a nissan micra.... and im wanting a nice nippy little hatch thats relativley cheap on insurance.
Exhaust would give it some extra poke. More noticeable in terms of throttle response. An induction kit would probably be useful (if installed properly) for the same reason. No idea on what turbo it uses. I assume you go for a bigger turbo though, with an intercooler.standard, maybe a new turbo? exhaust system, would an induction kit go far on it?
How'd you get on?ive seen one haha, and its from a dealer down the road from me basicly he wants 1200 for it, its completly standard has nearly full service history so its like a blank canvas ready for me to go crazy. Has had 2 owners and im going down to see it in about 2 hours. so im going to grab it if i can. Ive set aside 4k to do what i want with it.
Have you actually seen a GT40 for sale and in good condition then by any chance?
I have only ever heard of the Ford GT40 monster before, I think i'll google up some photos for a little look.
Good call tbh. Forums are good place to buy as they should have been looked after by an enthusiast. Keep us updated! I wanna see this track car build.There was deffinatly rot under the passenger seat and the bumper, the arches wern't to bad but tbh im suprised it passed its mot. Ive joined the club g40 forums aswell as they have a lot of g40s for sale and what i can do to get the most out of it. fingers crossed eh
