my dimma 5 gt turbo
« on: 07:03, Mon 16 July 2007 »
just got her and had a quick look over her, needs a few things but thats what projects are all about eh?



the kit seems to be fitted properly, its all smoothed in, it has a couple inperfecrtions tho. the car aint been on the road with the kit cos the interior is full of dust but the tax disc on the window says 10-99 so its not been used for a while eh?
looking at the brake discs you wouldnt think thay havent been used for 7years!! may have been stored in a garage tho

now speaking of interior, an ali g fanatic must of attacked it!

some bits are yellow inside, the whole car before the kit went on must have been painted in beniton colours, blue and yellow!

now i was told the engine needed work, a bottom end the guy said, it has no rocker cover or top boost pipe

i connected up a booster pack and after a few winds over it started. didnt sound to have a bottom end knock but i only had it runnin for a moment, didint want to make to much mess of oil.

so what do you all think of her?

air and pressure in the cooling system

turbo blowing oil in to intercooler pipe
more than enough play in the turbo shaft!
