Well as the title says this was my first car I bought ten years ago.

 

I converted it to a vr6 8 years ago drove it around for 2 years then couldn't insure it.

 

Since then I've have a few company cars and still have one now.

 

So what I have here is a car that I don't want to get rid of even low it needs alot of tlc, so iv finally started building it up as a budget toy.

 

I have it ruining on mega squirt 1 with 630cc injectors and a 8:1 decompression plate so it's now getting a load of budget boost.

 

This is not going to be a expensive build except for the bits I can't skimp on ie injectors don't want a lean cylinder.

 

Here are some photos I have taking on the way in no real order.

If anyone is interested in seeing how this turns out I'll keep it updated.

Coming on nicely. Is that one of those £4-500 ball bearing ebay turbo's? Was looking at a supplier of those website the other day, wondered what they'd be like.

I must admit I was looking at such turbo you talk about but couldn't find one that would be shipped quickly.

 

That's a eBay gt30 turbo think it cost 120 quid, I plan on seeing how long it last and I'm on the look out for a real gt35 or hx35-40 but I would also look for a eBay special ball bearing gt35.

 

I will be sure to let you know how the Chinese turbo holds up.
