mk3 gt turbo build

Post by GTnick on Mon Dec 31, 2012 9:53 am

well picked this gt up about a month ago had a fairly good spec before it was stripped of its goodies im planning on a 5e turbo engine big front mount decent exhaust system for it paint the wheels get it running and tip top shape then figure out what i want to do with it.
at the minute it looks very sorry for itself but things should be changing soon enough this is going to be one long build thread as funds are slack and parts are hard got well enough of me a few sorry looking picture of itself


but in a past life it looked like this Very Happy will be back there one day

only way to do it sure seen a few lads go bolting bits onto stock engines and whacking the boost up before even looking at them properly see if there good enough to take the power then wonder why they blow up
