my new wheels
« on: 14:43, Sun 25 October 2009 »
Bought this GTT about 5 weeks ago, always wanted one and when i had the chance to get this one....i jumped at it. Not looking to do anything too drastic to it on the outside, I like the basic look. But hoping to make a few engine upgrades along the way but first thing is to get it running sweetly. These are the pics when it was advertised I will upload some of my own soon. what do you think?

yeah your right, it was ayrshire i got it.  its was running good, and pulling fine through the gears, but due to it needing a new gearbox mount i was not really able to push as much as would have liked cos im afraid of causing further damage. but at the tail end of last week the small reservoir tank for the coolant has sprung a leak so, for now she's sitting waiting patiently for renault to get delivery of a new one. sometimes after being left on the driveway for a day or longer, when i try and start it, sometimes it takes ages to get going (especially on cold mornings), the perk fan has been removed, so could this be the cause?
mods that have been done.... stripped interior(not even a stereo) with red roll cage, standard gtt front seats.
i was told the engine was rebuilt last year and done had less than 1k miles since, but i have no proof. i do have a massive folder of reciepts and service history tho, and a lot of k-tec engine components used, so going by the reciepts this the main bits I can find are....
full scorpion 3" exhaust system
induction kit
ktr fast road all round disk brakes
turbo technics stage 2 turbo
GRP A dump valve
BB racing paddle clutch

i was also told its set running a low boost, approx 11psi and 170bhp, but again i have no proof and have doubts. would this figure be possible?
 next up I want to get some chrome replacement engine parts, a front mounted intercooler - anyone selling one?? then off to the rr, and get someone too look at the fueling and see what boost im running
