Hay there all,

Just a good re fresh of the engine at this stage, will go for more power etc once engine is in and run it. ( larger throttle body ? injectors? etc etc)

Headers are custom build 4 - 1 hope they give me good top end.......

Nice, should be good with the new engine!

What options are you looking at for the front brake conversion?

I got my engine rebuilt too as well as all new suspension and rebuilt gearbox and was considering setting the odo to 0 but wasn't sure... Do chassis kilometers not matter?

Looking good though, how does it drive?

Got a WOF on the 16 - 06 - 2012 and me speedo read 000362 km (body done 306000 km) just puts a red flag on the car history report

Motor is running sweet as, still in the light running stage.

Battery is now in the boot and have a Alloy Evo radiator in it, Look out ruapuna, going to do a few track days in it in the street class grade and see how it goes.

Gotta make a cold air box now to take up the space that the battery has left, going to make it from cardboard and then get it bent up in alloy.........

Will get some new pures up soon

i had some black top ITB's from my brothers old car and have started to cut up the intake adapter to weld some tubes onto. I am looking around locally to find a spare stock 4g9* manifold to cut up for the head flange. If i mange to get it made i probably won't install it until i get a 1.8 bottom end build
(i couldn't link them as images since this forums image height restriction is 769pixels for some reason)
