got potential


Recommended Posts

hi all from another newbie,

picked this up at the right price, needs plenty of work on the exterior but it has potential once the warmer weather arrives.. but i do need to source some cossie front wings of either steel or fibre glass and a different bonnet..





its running a 1.8 si that has piper cams, stage 2 head, nissan 375 cc/min injectors, superchiped ecu, remus sports exhaust,, high pressure fuel pump, mahle pistons and piper-X induction kit. (only problem is that it does over fuel)


it shall be going on the rolling road in a few weeks for tuning and output report.... i will update what the results are

just the middle top vent would of been ok on the bonnet i think, but deffo need to get rid of the bottom vents, too much going on bonnet


you go easyish job just to do front wings i reckon, badboyclub on here is selling a full cossie kit, he might sell the front wings seperate


oh change the mirrors

Welcome. Intereted in seeing it from more angles :)


Hoping to find one where it looks bearable? ;)



Sorry, but it's really not my thing. You'll want to put the right injectors in before you cause damage to the engine, a superchip isn't going to have enough remit to handle the Nissan ones that have been [incorrectly] fitted.

cheers for the welcome and the comments,

i have a friend who is scrapping a mk6 so im grabbing the bonnet and mirrors off of it... they are blue at the minute but i got my own spray gun etc so wont be a problem to blow it over.

im intending spending some time doing it but not until summer, life is too busy at the minute.


as for the quesion of how much i payed.... i got it with 10 mnths MOT and 5 months Tax paid £400 for it as an on the road project

What Cosworth kit is that, it looks like a cheap rep, doesnt even have the correct lines in the bodywork?? :(


Its got potential, but I would reccommend changing those back arches to better ones, get the rear wheel's spaced out & tidy the front end up. :thumb:
