It was a long day
The car came with a ton of paper work.
The car was imported in 1998 around 2007 it had a fully forged engine built norris designs this was replaced with a rebuilt forged engine and then in 2012 GTI-R-US sold it with a stockish SR20 engine.
From then the paper work claims its got a Hybrid Turbo that was fitted in 2012/2013. Not to sure what the difference being between normal turbo and hybrid, i assume its bearing related so it spools quicker but thats a guess. The previous previous owner in 2013 was named Stephen Nichols so if anyone has his contact details that would be great so i can ask more about the engine.
It has the following mods;
Mongoose full cat back system
Manual Boost controller set to 0.9Bar
HKS Boost Gauge
HKS Dual Dump Valve
HKS mushroom filter
Walbro Fuel Pump
BK Racing 16" Wheels
Upgrade GTI-R-US gear selector fork
Exedra Stage 2 3 Puck Clutch
Some type of damper adjustable suspension
Its feels bloody rapid, its been a while since I've driven an SR20DET car and it really does pull well from 0 - 100 its just silly
There are a few issues but i guess there always is if you pay less than average for a car.
Rust on rear arches as they are bubbling
Heaters don't work very well
Temperature gauge doesn't work
This morning i set about cleaning it and hovering it out as it was filthy. Also de-wipered the rear to tidy up the rear end as it was.
Plans for the next year are as follows
FMIC as its still got a standard FMIC
Wideband O2 Sensor
Change exhaust tip to 3" rather than 5"
Sort out Rust
Wider Wheels with semi slicks
Service the car
one strange thing is when you change gear below 2k revs the car really judders back and forth. Gears go in fine but it does judder so you got to give it some revs. I thought this may be due to the stage 2 clutch and uprated gear fork. If you have any thoughts please let me know.
After 80mph wind starts coming in through the driver door seal, think its an old seal so maybe its that.
Enough of the talking here are some pictures
What i would love it to look like
