    Nice one what's the plan as far as tuning goes or are you sticking with a stock map?

    I'm going to wait and see how everything turns out post-build before I even think about tuning it. I have also ordered a turbo from online and it hasnt arrived yet. If the product ends up not turning up, I may go for a MAMBA K04/RS6 Hybrid turbo (EBAY). But to reaffirm what I said, If the car runs after the recondition and rebuild, i'll be waiting about 10,000km before I tune it. I tune these cars for a living :)

    So as it comes to a finish, the car has been reconstructed, and is in full working order. I've bought some coil spring compressors to put the stock springs back in, and also a haldex repair kit to refresh the AWD system. XS power are supplying me with a gen 4 exhaust manifold because the one I was sent didn't fit!. The turbo is working really well, no leaks at all. Car began to oberboosting, I checked wastegate and all is within spec (I changed over a Borg Warner wastegate to the china k04 turbo). Next will be a set of coilovers, sway bar setup and some Porsche brembos. I can't believe it's finally done. It's a gorgeous car and I'm so glad I rebuilt and reconditioned it. I will be posting pictures tonight.

    Hey guys! So the car was back on the road for about 2-3 weeks and I was enjoying the living sh*t out of it. Took it down south and I have some pictures to show you's all. However, as soon as i got home, the turbo to manifold gasket blew out, causing a massive exhaust leak and the clutch began to act like melted butter. As a result, I bought a spec stage 3 clutch kit and steel LWFW. My pro V4 relentless manifold has arrived too!. I'll post pics of what my manifold and clutch kit look like too!. My engine is coming out this week for the clutch and mani change, so yeah... fun! haha not...
