History of the car

So this was the car as I bought it.. back in 2005 off a member here named becky aka Ducatichick





Had a few runs at Santa Pod my best time running a A.E.M ecu and a Rogue charge cooler





After many track days I decided a bit more power was needed so i decided to go down the forge route. I want to sort out the 2tone paint work the car had when I bought it as she had got a mate to paint it for her and it was not the greatest



so I decided to keep the colour the same but just a refresh but this happened



Bit of a mix up at the paint shop so decided it was a time for a change [thumleft]





So I then it was time to start the engine build [thumleft]







The head was ported 18% over stock




Time for some Zircotec coating







Time for the engine to go in







Time for some mapping

And then the block decided it wanted to crack on the water pump... So after some thought I have decided to go down the 5S block route so more pics to come soon [thumleft]

So this weeks update

got the car back from TDI so I can start cracking on with the body work as the engine is still being sorted out [thumleft]

Also got the ABS hubs I got from Magic beans back from the blasting company as well.... So I decided I would give them some attention





Still a mountain of things to do [d'oh!]

So little update... engine has been cleaned.. machined.. and ready for the install of the new pistons that came highly recommended from Nathan from DP engine parts...

Body wise we are still cracking on had to wait on a few more parts to show up..all here now and we are ready to crack on [thumleft] [thumleft]


So since the engine is out I have been considering fitting NOS only for top end so gear 4 &5 , 4k to 7k Rev for top end speed and cool the engine down a bit while on long straights I have the ECU that can easily do this.... just thinking should I? [Think] [Think]

Cheers Rich

Why NOS for high end revs? Surely your turbo has kicked in by 4k.

I've heard of people using it for low revs for when turbo is still spooling.

Not for quick spool I have that covered ....it is mainly for top end bhp and cooling of the cylinders at top end from what I have read it is good for cars in hotter climates but would still offer the same rewards here in the uk [Think] [Think]

And I would get a Go BABY GO gear knob [Dancing]
