    The car is back and running ! Needs a new knock sensor as this must have got damaged in crash or between removing and re-installation !

    Has had a Full check over by Tuning developments and afew bits and bob sorted.

    Dave is going to do the Z32 rear conversion and we will get the bumpers on and get it motd .

    Bodywork and roll cage can then be sorted out :-)

    Still alot of work to do on the car to get it how i want it but considering we have had to strip my old car for every part and then fully build up another from a shell up with mainly just working on the weekends we havent done to bad but mainly dave !

    Just awaiting a knock sensor then finish the Z32's and finish the headlights and should be ok to get MOTD.

    Need to find a decent painter to do some work

    Ahh cool , ive ordered one so hopefully be here in afew days but its on ramps at the moment while we finish the rear brakes off.

    It seemed to drive ok apart from abit low down it felt like it was missing but mike reckons it will be down on power until it gets sorted.

    seems to bloody shift either way !

    HID's wired in and working.

    New stalks fitted also as one was damaged from my green 200.

    Dave has got the Z32 rear brake conversion on and handbrake fitted, need new bolts to fit into Z32 calipers so went to get these from demon tweeks.

    Just need some rear braided lines from dan at DB power then should be able to get MOT.

    Nedd to fit a new knock sensor too

    Rear Bumper Fitted.

    Braided lines fitted, we had abit of a mare , one of the copper lines was leaking so dave had to get the flaring tool out and re do it , he's a star !

    We also managed to fir the new knock sensor and it was done in 20 mins :-)

    We made one little mistake and used the hubs which came with the Z32 conversion and found out these must not be quite rite as the nut on the shaft come loose so we need to put the S14A rear hubs back on sat then take for an mot.

    Making good progress though.

    The GTX turbo starts boosting literally straight away !

    Yes thats the one buddy .

    Think theres only 2 of us in the UK running these on 200's.

    Its alot of money just for the insert as you have to already have the exhaust housing for the turbo

    Interesting. I was investigating 2860/63s and seeing if it's possible to get a twin scroll exhaust housing. Apparently Garrett made an announcement a few months ago saying they had developed some twin scroll turbine housings but I haven't seen them available anywhere.

    The transient response should be phenomenal if a good twin scroll housing is available at any point though.

    Put it this way theres no turbo lag on this turbo , its silly how quickly it starts spooling up !

    Thats what caught me out on my first drive !

    Eventually i am going to go top mount set up with a GTX30 and a full forge set up and uprated gearbox.
