my berlina turbo walky

My genuine LW5 berlina turbo, with rb25 conversion, had 275hp at the rears with the rb30 in it, unsure as to the power now as it is untested…but the turbo has been hi-flowed, has gtr intercooler, shift kit auto with 2800 stally, 3.55 ratio diff. just got it back from the panel beaters last week with its new paint…needs to go back to get a buff and de-nib soon but is shiny as anyway, plus need to get the boot strip and walky jack-hole covers off him.
next is to do an interior makeover with new carpet dash and front seats.

Looks really nice, good choice of colour too. Are you going to fit the front lower lip to match the rest of the kit?

thanks for the kind comments fellas....i was real happy with how the colour turned out, its got a gold fleck to it in the sun. its ford's BA falcon luscious pearl, apparently not the easiest/cheapest paint to apply. and yep getting bigger wheels to go on asap. oh i'm leaving it wingless as i like it like that.

im going to put new carpet in..but im still not sure on what colour to get, beige or black..then the bigger wheels 19" or 20" . then look at getting bigger injectors and eftermarket ecu, then finally maybe bigger turbo and forward facing plenum.

cheers mate..im at wynnum, the way its looking now its only been getting around like that for the past couple of weeks, just missed out in having it ready for cruise for charity by one day. the Rb30 spun a big end baring and i was gunna rebuild it but got talked into doing the conversion by a workshop that ultimately ripped me off big time...i should have had it rebuilt elsewhere and saved a**** load of money..but you live and learn.

That looks tough as. Its begging for an LE boot spoiler though. That would finish it off perfectly

Looks awesome. Some nice big wheels and an LE lip would make this killer.

Love the paint, you've done well.

Bit of an update…fitted jacking point covers, mesh in side skirts, boot lid plastic and decal kit.



Something you don’t see too often on replicas or even original walkies for that matter..jacking point covers
