I began sorting all my parts for my GT turbo. They were all included in the price, when I bought the car. I only got through one box, though :D There are lots of parts, but I'm not too sure about the quality of many of the parts.
It's fun looking it all through, though! A lot like Christmas, I never know what to find in the next box :wink:



Cheers

Hey, I've found five so far! They're all quite rusty, though :wink:

Hi guys! It has been a while since I last updated this thread, but fortunately I have got some work done to it lately. Finally!!
Here it comes.


I have fitted a reconditioned T2/T25 hybrid turbo, which pulls a lot better than the old standard turbo. Also the car does not smoke anymore :D I know the picture of the turbo is not the best, but you all know what it looks like anyway.


I have fitted an OMP aluminium strut brace.


A new alternator fitted as well.


Spoiler has come off, and I have fitted a red GTturbo badge.


I have fitted an OEM front grille instead of the open mouth.


I bought some OEM Cibiť fog lights in Austria, which still needs to be fitted to the car.

Furthermore I have -
sanded down and resprayed the foglight brackets.
changed rear brake discs and pads.
fitted a big bore elbow and down pipe to the hybrid turbo.

I would like to thank two guys on the forum! Thank you jonnyshaw49 for selling me this perfect turbo. It is really great!!
And thank you modfather for buying and shipping the OEM grille for me. You guys are really great!!!

That is it for now. Cheers.

Hi mate,
yes, the turbo still pulls like a train. I am not doing too much to the car during winter, although I have changed the oil pressure gauge to a mechanical one. Also changed the boost pressure gauge. pictures will come later, when I have installed the remaining gauges.

I got the best christmas present from myself this year!!
Some new custom made alloys 8)  They are Braid Serie 4 RC, classic light weight racing alloys. Made on order only.
The pictures are from my phone, so they are of a bad quality. Just close your eyes, though, and imagine them fitted to my car. Yes, that is sweet! Cannot wait until summer!





Cheers!

Cheers guys,

I am glad you like it. I am fitting volt meter, water temperature, and oil temperature gauges later. All mechanical gauges.
Except volt meter of course. :lol:

I like those guages.

Ideally i want some that are clean and easy to read. These smoky backlit Autoguage jobs i have at the moment look the part, but most the time i can barely read them.

Pointless really.  :roll:

Hahaha!! :lol:
Yeah mate, I can imagine!
But I spent a lot of time searching for some gauges that both were easy to read, clean, and suit the interior of the car. I think I managed to find them.
I am really glad for these Stack gauges. And they just light white, no fancy colours to disturb your eyes.

Really recommendable 8)
