My dream would be to do this with a Rallye but had this car for 7 years so the base was basically free.

 

 

I was lucky enough to get one before the prices sky rocketed so living the dream however I've not driven the car even though I've owned for 3 years or something like that.

When you have a sec have a look over my build. I've put a link in my signature

Great to see you’re still cracking on . I’ll certainly be watching from the sidelines.

By the way can you confirm the part number for the NGK coil packs is 06E905115E? Need to get a set for my build and prefer the look and layout with these

At this point I just wanted to get the car back together and running. So it was a quick clean of the brake calipers and back on. I will probably get these refurbished next winter.

Mount made for my Talon switch panel. Total newb at fabrication if you can call it that but good fun anyway.

Car made 555bhp on wastegate springs which is enough to run it in and zero modifications to the standard DRP gearbox.

After lots of thought SQS or DonOctane decided to go for something purpose made and best of all UK made.

Time to come apart again

Lots and lots of Fing and blinding late the gearbox was out with the engine and transfer box still in position. Entirely possible but definitely yanking the engine next time.

Had a few issues on the dyno with pipes blowing off and overheating due to air locks so re-introduced an expansion bottle back in the system.

Found a local guy to paint the car so decided on House of Kolor ‘Jet set back’ and lots of clear and colour sanding. Seen it on the tv a bunch so fancy myself a nice paint job. On area I’ve never paid a lot of attention to.
