philGTT's motor, new pics
« on: 15:48, Mon 30 June 2008 »
Hey guys,

This is my R5 i purchased it at the end of May 2008.
I love it, what a great drive :!:  
Im trying to keep the exterior and interior looking quite standard as i think they look great this way, but with little changes like wheels etc.

Engine:
So far i have fitted a copper coil radiator and a K-tec alloy intercooler. I have changed the standard turbo/carb hoses for Samco hoses, and added red vacuum hoses. I have also fitted stainless steel boost pipes with dump valve. Oh and a big induction kit.

Interior:
I have replaced the seat bolster due to it being collapsed. added a independent boost gage. But mainly just tidying up :!:

Exterior:

I have fitted Khan racing alloys. And am jus waiting to paint up my new doors and bad-boy bonnet due to my original doors being rusty as hell:!:
And am looking for a garage to lower the rear :!:

Ok here she is.........  :D    















got a new bonnet n until i can afford the proper paint i did it matt black! back to my old Dub days

Wow, that looks good!

I think they look better standard on the outside!

Well done!

i'm well into the standard look outside. although some nice subtle mods outside look nice.
the wheels suite it well, it'll look even better when its dropped.
