Pro-bt1

I bought the car as an 88vlbt1 turbo there were no big plans for it maby a cooler but that was it....... 3 months after buying it it spun a bearing and it came off the road for the following changes.


The motor was replaced, wiring was hidden,battery went in the boot and the bay was givin a exstensive detail and the car also became manual.







After that i got abit bored and chucked a cooler and plenum on it.




Then i made the biggest mistake EVER..... I bought a T70



This was what the car looked like upto this point...




Then the enebitable happend i blew the headgasket...


I changed the head gasket went for a run and it was blowing smoke everytime i gave it crap so i sepperated the rear housing from the turbo found oil and SCRAPE!!!! marks inside the rear housings so that turbo went in the bin!!!

THEN IT BEGAN!!!!

I got a good price on a gt42 and being the clown i was back then i thought ''ohh ill just modify the ebay manifold to suit''' then i hit the problems lol.

*fuel system
*driveline
*motor
*manifold

bonnnet wouldnt close


So i got a manifold made up and that was sorta the turning point for me so i just said screw it and went all out....





The manifold,dump and screamer was custom made buy extreme turbo manifolds (Pm duz360's for infomation Leighs a sick **** he can do anything you want) i also got the turbosmart 48mm gate thru him.

Now That the exhaust side was taken care of i focused on the drive line i bought a 2sp powerglide ,1 peice tailshaft and a 28spline fullspool.




Next was the fuel system witch i still havnt finished as now im chasing more power.

All the parts i got for the fuel system were sourced through vpw(pauls a great guy and looks after us CT users)

910cc injectors
2x 044 pumps (i have one)
2x 3L surge tanks (has to be done)
1/2 inch fuel lines (just have to run them)
Blue fuel rail
microtech Lt10s
I also grabbed a commetic headgasket and an alloy radiator.
Thanks paul..




Basicly i had the car looking like this.




Then i stripped it all for paint.......












Then i orderd a motor Through STONE RACING...... he looked after me on the price of the motor cheers willy..... And i also orderd a Full custom sump through extreme turbo manifolds.








Ill keep you guys updated!!!

Looks great so far mate...

It'll be wicked when its complete, you've done everything and done it well...

The interior should look damn good too, have you got photos of the seats?

What rims are you putting on it?
