R5GTT Dimma
« on: 18:20, Mon 01 February 2010 »
This is how she looks at the moment







Right well heres a nice list of thing for me to do.

Re fit the fmic properly,
Refit the oil cooler - 1 of the previous owners thought it would be a good idea to have this at the back of the engine bay for some reason.
Either wire up the quad headlamps properly or get some standard ones.
Replace the head gasket - already ordered a Group A metal gasket with high strength head bolts,
Refurb the turbo.
Replace all the multi coloured samco hosing, including getting rid of the twin dump valves and replacing for an external waste gate.
Take off the bonnet and throw it away!!!
Replace both front and back bumpers as these are not the dimma ones that the car needs.

Thats all for now more will follow

Good call with the bonnet and bumpers. Will look a lot better with the correct parts in place.  8)

What happened with the oil cooler, surely it would be more difficult to place it at the rear of the engine?!  :mrgreen:

Previous owners eh?  :lol:
