Very nice car I have seen it before on RTOC. Used to be owned by Riki who used to do copy side decals for the R5 and other graphics. Very nice car.




Why you going to put a 140 main and 0.9 a/c. It's all in the 2nd stage matey to sort fueling out for high boost. Get yourself a decent wideband

Going for a MR2 GT TBar if I can find one.
Will deffo buy another R5 in the future when I move to a house, in an apartment at the minute and its a pain working on it in the underground(dim lighting and no power)
