hey guys!
« on: 18:33, Tue 03 June 2008 »
Hey there!
Its taken me long enough but i've finally purchased an R5!!!
Its a tungsten grey Phase 2! when i got it she was completely standard.
I have just put a K-tec intercooler on with a copper core radiator. I have also put on an induction kit and replaced the Turbo/carb hoses with samco ones. Its getting lowered 50mm on springs atm until i can afford coilovers.

i have heard mixed comment about the R5 engine!
can you up the boost safely? and will the lil bits ive done so far help make the engine run safer?
also what do you think i should look to do next?

im still learning! lol

cheers, phil
