qa1 double adjustable coil overs were $780 with springs and the 4 link about $60 for the sheet of steel and $600 for all the good teflon lined 3/4 rose joints, chrome moly socket ends and bolts. this **** is unbreakable

ill keep the templates for everything though so if anyone is interested i can cut it all out maybe put it all to together and send it to you aswell as a set of instructions of how to fit it.

yeah possibly but not really.

its on the ground and rolling around now. i had to shorten my pedders adjustable panhard rod to clear the drivers side shock. i love the way it looks now. engine is built and ready to be picked up, but i am having the engine bay repainted first.

sticks is supplying me a haltech ps2000, id2000s and a couple more 044s. meaning all my old stuff is for sale - microtech lt10s with 30psi map sensor, hand controller, 1000cc injectors and aem water/methanol injection kit with 5 litre ally tank. made 308rwkw on 17psi with a highflowed gt35. make me an offer

cheers fellas.

fitted the passenger side koni adjustable shocks and nolathane adjustable strut tops last week. sits a fait bit higher than it used to so adjustable coilovers are next on the list.

i temporarily dropped the motor in today in preparation for wiring up my new haltech platinum sport 2000 ecu. i still have to send my convertor away to be lossened, the manifold & turbine housing to be coated and paint some other bits before the engine can be bolted in for good. i also had the engine bay repainted, looks about 3.2 million times better than before!

i also have started rewiring the entire car from scratch (only replacing the things i need). i also bought a haltech racepack dash which ill fit where the old cluster went. that will be here early next week.

progress is slow due to long hours at work but ****s getting done!! i cant wait to get the thing back into action

cheers dude!

engine is nearly all wired up, just waiting for the crank trigger to arrive but everything else is done.

my racepak dash fit into the standard cluster shroud pretty snug! its not completely finished yet. still have to swap the red led's to the correct colours and paint the inset panel.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

New sparco seats, harnesses, carpet and steering wheel arrived Friday, so i spent Saturday making the floor mounts up for them. This week the plan is to fix the rear of the cage and get the inside of the car ready for paint and maybe fab up the fuel cell. I booked the car in to have the door panels and rooflining made in 2 weeks.

Nice daily! That would be dangerous in the wet! The cage looks pretty serious. What sort of times you aiming for?

im trying for around 450 at the tread at this stage. i can change turbo and build a new manifold later on if i get real keen. everything else i should have to touch. daily is so much fun. i took a dodgy engine bay shot yesterday arvo.

folded up the pieces for the cell yesterday, ill wait for my filters and stuff to arrive on tuesday to before i get my mate to start building it. rear fire wall bit is sheeted up. i went a bit different and made it so all the cage and notch is in the cabin. i also started paint the underside of the car, the diff and all the 4 link bars.
