Its pitted with muck already james :D

Dazzle ive fitted a tidy set of gtt seats up front, quickshift gear lever, couple of guages thats about it, might stick a mattress in the back lol. Want to keep it as light as poss really, no idea what the kerb weight is but its heavier tahn a gtt!

T28 is on order should be here by the end of the week, can't wait to up the boost a bit, got me new lm1 & stethoscope at the ready :)

Thought id update this thread as quite a lot has happened since the build...

Fitted a t28, set the boost to 15lbs manifold, took it down the pod & ran a 14.5, not bad for a van...

Few updated pics..











Fitted koni yellows up front & lowered the rear a bit more, Fitted Mintex 1144 pads up front & took it round mallory park, great fun :wink:







Its been ultra reliable since the build, only had a couple of little issues so really pleased. Planning on fitting a piper 285 cam & vernier over winter to see a few more ponies!

What a total sleeper, mental!

How much difference in weight is there between the van and the car?
