In the process of turboing it at the mo. got all the hotside on just waiting for my uncle to weld up the runners cos the previous owner cracked them putting something where the temp sensor goes.





when i first got it and ditched the hubbies for ceptas



---------- Post added 13-06-10 at 17:37 ----------

got the intake manifold on today , now just need a cooler, put the brakes on and rego.

until the box breaks and i needaa replace the axels as the spool as had too much of a workout.









keep ya posted.
