225 BHP . . . and need advice on future plans!
« on: 22:03, Thu 10 July 2008 »
Here are a few pics of my 1988 R5 Turbo, 50k on clock and has run like new for 6 months that i have owned it and not 1 problem. Most of the engine has been changed or uprated in some way hence the power althought traction in lower gears is a problem :) Full spec to be added soon!

I take it you tryed to race it in liverpool? yeh it is pretty quick! since i bought it its had new clutch as the paddle clutch on it was a pig to drive and its been striped out. future plans......... bit more power and some restoration to the body work make it look how it should!
