    Rnash's Quest For 400

    Ok thought i would start a project thread on my new purchase.
    See here.

    http://www.vpcuk.org/forums/showthread.php?t=44832

    Well it does need a few things and is not in mint condition but this doesnt bother me as i wanted a project,something to get my teeth into.
    Ive had alittle mess about with the actuator as i didnt like the way in came in or lack of lol but think i need to change it for a 15g one (one on way)

    Well my aim is for 400bhp or over,this will hopfuly be achieved some time next year as ive got a house move comming up and all the money needs to go to that,unless i can put some aside without the Mrs finding out lol.

    Ok ive got this picture of the car stolen from the forsale thread.


    Will get some better ones once ive given her a good t-cut and polish and touched up some marks.
    Ive already started to do the wheels on the cheap (sandpaper,tin of wheel silver,primer,laquar)1 done so far and im pleased with the result.



    And this is how it was.



    Will try and update as i go

    On a basic spec i would say turbo back exhaust,sports cat,vxr injectors,better rods,uprated fuel pump,turbo tuner ecu,a big turbo(dont know what yet) maybe need a better clutch than the R one but will see,bigger throttle body and a better front mount intercooler.
    Think thats about it lol

    Ok fitted a 15g actuator ( thanks oblark ) and set my mbc upto 0.7 bar,goes well now but need more power so at some stage will get a 19t map to tide me over till next year.
    Sprayed my grill black today and looks alittle better.

    Got just these pics,will get some better ones when the weather picks up lol.
