    Welcome to the club Ty.

    One thing that I didn't see mentioned was the fuel pump. If you're going to be upping the power, or even just running as it is then it's worth checking what you have in there.

    The forum is a mine of information so anything you need you'll be able to find here.

    Not really they keep there value because of the luxury car tax. Anything not Ford or Holden was pretty much taxed out out of existence. It's got alot better in recent years but now Holden and Ford no longer build there cars here my first car was a 3.9lt Ford Falcon cost nearly $2500 over 20 years old and 300k on the clock. German cars like a BMW or Audi are stupid silly money. My next door neighbour just spent $115k on a land rover 115k thats half the price of my house!!!!! Literally.

    Hi Andy,

    I have a receipt stating the fuel pump was changed when the Stage 1A Chip from H-Dev was put in.

    I will have a look at the Fuel Pump when I pick the car up, any markings I should be looking out for?

    Depends where you live. Each sate it different. Sydney is heaps expensive infact I think it is or is one of the most expensive places to live in the world. Yes pay is good alot lot better then the UK but cost of living is slightly more. No free healthcare. It's pros and cons swings and roundabouts and relative. Put it this way despite all the above. My first house is a split level five bed with rumpus room (cheese and wine room or what ever you lot call erm now) and study set on three aches with two horses two dogs a S14 Xtrail and a stang. Although not easy I would NEVER sorry to say be able to do that in the UK not first house that's for sure.

    So I managed to get some pictures off my phone from when my mate got her:









    So there we have it!

    I am really unsure on the body kit name, I like it but I would like a front bumper to match!

    Not really keen on the Rotas but they will do for now, want something with dish to really offset the car

    Once I have her on the road I will take some better photos

    Yeah dude that's what I thought it was! Same with the skirts. I recon the previous dude bought the whole kit and before he ended up smashing the front bumper.

    Can't wait to start driving her!

    That's what I've got ready to go on mine when I finished cutting and chopping it about haha if you need a bumper to match I got mine from a company on eBay that's in Essex called G.R.A.M.S can't say what the fits like as I haven't tried it yet, but the quality was very impressive for a rep, very sturdy

    I bet! Always puts a smile on my face
