Okay here's the beast from when i got it up until current...

Started life as a Strawberry face S13.5, light blue with barbed wire and shit-stains all over it...

the engine had a high mount TD05-18G turbo on a custom high mount manifold with a 50mm external gate and screamer pipe...

Due to some oiling issues with the engine i managed to fry that turbo, so i had it rebuilt as a TD05-20G, and ran that for a little while, after getting a defect for it, i changed setups to the current one of a s15 T28BB on std low mount manifold and JJR stainless dump and front, this proved to me much more suitable with what i am currently looking for with the setup...

suspension was swapped from a set of Monza shocks and springs (not too bad for non-adjustable) to a set of quite stiff Cusco coilovers. They are quite stiff, but not too bad with the standard sway bars etc, only issue i have is the lack of squat when hard on the brakes, but i should be able to fix this by getting some softer springs for the front, just need to measure them up and see what brands will fit...

bout it really at the moment, just going through the process of removing the sunroof to cater for some extra headroom...

Currently makes 184kW (UniGroup Dyno) after they rescued the tune on the Test-And-Tune night, quite happy with the amount of power it has at the moment, focusing on handling and driving the car at the moment, no need to go nuts on the power yet...altho i'm sure it has plenty more in it yet...

Looks good. The new paint job suits it. Any reason why you decided to get rid of the S15 front?

Time for an Update...

Took the car out to Oran Park (South) today, was quite interesting to drive having never driven this car on a circuit before...or driven on oran park before for that matter...

Handled very well once i got the hang of it all, had a few offs, learnt a few things...got some body kit repairing to do now tho :P

was running just street tyres and ended up doing a 0:53.8 (RaceChrono)

definately an easy few more seconds to shave there just in getting used to the way it handles, few suspension tweaks and some semi slicks would help too...but overall very happy with it so far :D
