Thought I would start a thread for my car




This is a standard car - except for the HKS Dragger Exhaust System

Been off the road for three weeks now but most of the works been done ....

Coming home from work and the end result- water pump gave up so the end result was the dead car in the middle of nowhere.

RAC recovery and no car

So after speaking with my tuner and a few others it was obvious my engine would have to be rebuilt - Abbey wanted serious money to do this my tuner is booked solid and like everyone else he is getting ready for xmas ....

Anyway kept searching and found a Middlehurst Vspec 33GTR an Ideal donor for my car . :yum:

This is what it looked like when I bought it





Most probably about 300BHP ( Sandard Car ) never got it dyno when stock

Will post spec and more pics later
