following on from:

http://www.imoc.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=91771&highlight=sleeved

i think ill start a thread [Angel]

Car has been off the road for a long time.

Have decided to sell the greddy t4 manifold and gt35 turbo and go full-race while i have the opportunity.

full-race turbo kit comes in at 4k, have a new discontinued sard mig muffler to go on, (my 4th exhaust in under a year) hoping for this one to be more silent, if possible [Brick wall] [Think]

Still on the list to do.

downsize pistons for reliabilty 87mm to 86.5
sleeve the block
adapt/make new manifold/wastegate/downpipe fit
move oil cooler
trim dash and cut away A/C, heater matrix, unused wiring
put all back together with new gaskets etc and run in

things to complete after

duct all brakes
engine fans
carbon doors
bespoke fia weld in cage
t888 tyres
camber/suspension setup

Nice, How much do you charge for cutting grass with that splitter??? [Mr. Green]


Are you going to make it more of a Track car or are you going to keep it road friendly?

Looking good.

I do love these Phoenix power cars.
Just had one slip through my fingures for a second time.
I have been following a black one since it came into the country through Julian about 7 years ago. Missed out on purchasing it about 4 years ago and it looks like I have missed out again, the money is just sitting there waiting. [Brick wall]

Such is life, I will have to wait till next time.

Was your one built for the drag strip?

One of my fav 2's [Drool] Love it!

Wasn't too keen on the PP front end at first but the more I looked at your's the more I loved it [Twisted Evil]

Just noticed how your intercooler is setup, how is it getting airflow into the boot [Think] Can't see any cut-outs?

yes boot floor is there, mainly to stop heat from the exhaust.

from this shot you can see the intercooler.

i plan to put 2x spal fans in the boot instead of 1.

Apparently the Turbo on it now isnt the one PP fitted to the car, maybe that caused the change in Power?
