PostPosted: Sat May 08, 2010 5:11 pm    Post subject: The Tic Tac 500bhp build thread Reply with quote Reply with quote including images

I hav always had a fassination with cars especialy high perfomance cars,i wanted to start off learning the basics of engine tuning and teaching my self an doing as much as i possible could with out specialist help. So i decided a good base to start from would be a vauxhall i no booo lol,but i spent a few years messing about with GSI corsa's,GTE nova's and so on,but i always had this felling for the need for more power and always wanted somthing turbocharged as my next project,i have always been interested in jap cars as theres so many variations of parts and options on the market.So as soon as i turned 20 and had built up a few years no claims i decided on two cars a nissan pulsar GTI-R as i liked that it had 4x4 drive and of course the toyota mr2 turbo for its powerfull race bread 3SGTE engine (same one found in the wrc corrola and celica in the erly 90's,the mr2 won my heart in the end as i fell in love with the looks of the rev3 GTS shape and there pritty rare in the south.

So after a few months searching i came across a very tidy mr2 rev3 turbo with loads of aftermarket goodys with in,i went and had a look it was very clean and looked after and a very good price,we went for a spin in it and omg never in my wildest dreams did i imagin it was going to be this quick then he looked at me and said thats stock boost buddy,he turned it up to 1bar i thort i was going to die and deffantly neaded to change my boxers,he let me hav a drive it back and i drove like an old women as my hands were shaking still uncontrolebly,after a final inspection (4hrs worth lol) i managed to knocked him down amazing £750,if you wave the ££££ in there face they cant resist sum times,so i took my new pride an joy home some 250miles wich i loved every secound of,and it didnt miss a beat and was soo quick had a nice lil comparisant test lol with a subaru on the way back just to compaire the power [Whistle] lets just say he was rather shocked when i dropped it down a gear and left him [Laughing]
it was ment to be bought and driven but with in the first week of owning it i had forked out a few k on sum goodys



pics from when first bought

i had also fitted a turbo technics hybrid blower to the car and i was very happy with how it had turned out but this didnt last, i had been working very hard to get it ready for a local jap event in the south east known a jap bash, i had met up with a few other drivers and we drove over to the venue i barely gave it the beans as there was so many of us we had to wait for peaple to catch up from getting stuck at light etc, i got to the front gates and the car started to run a bit lumpy on idle and was nearly rev dependant then the smoke started, i took it into the grounds were me and a freind looked to see if i had put a hose on the wrong way round or boost pipe loose we found nothing, so i left it and crossed my fingers for the way home started the car was running ok then half way home all hell broke loose dropped a cylinder and smoke was bellowing out from everywere [pale] , popped to a freind near buy and took the spark plugs out cylender 3 was full of oil not good, i thought to my self ringland failure, so called the AA out to recover it to my house, then bought alot of beer and drowned my sorrows all my hard work for one day [Sad] , woke up in the morning with a hangover and decided i wasnt going to giv up on it, and decided to forge her with lots of added goodys i decided a good budget would be around 5k, as you will see this figure went out the window [Laughing]
