Hahahaha hard to beat hey.
What's it running now?
Funny enough, Tez has now just recently come back and bought a Jdm twinscroll blobeye.
And thanks, slow but enjoyable project, just saving up for a new built engine for mine now when family life and funds allow.

got a gt35 and not to laggy, easy to drive, still no oil consumption. over 500 . But a classic with over 400 is brilliant, loved my old classic with 360 . Good work so far from you . I myself find around 450 for a newage on normal roads good enough, no Need for more. A classic is a monster with that

Agree, I don't think I will see 500 in my classic tbh, but around 450 as before with a bit of meth. Just I'm getting engine built to cope with more and then it's just a turbo change if I need it
Yes the new ages refine the power smoothly and can feel like they can cope, but a classic can be a bit scary lol, especially type r rear biased can snap lol.

Is yours still on same engine at 500+?

yes corky


and waiting till something needs doing


My mate works for Manthey Racing (Porsche Nurburgring) and builds engines and when it goes it will be a rebuild with a 22 block and 2,35




Driving with a classic is like you wrote more rear end snap but I loved that. The newage I find is more neutral

I should of got it sorted about now (its a new 2.1 motor i want, pulled old engine out already and is now empty up front)
Thing is financially it didn't go well for me this time as other stuff always ***** me up so kind of upset about it, not sure if im fed up or do i just throw the towel in.
Its just how im feeling right now as dont know when i can afford it now as its months off if I decide to carry on with it, depressing just seeing it and cant fix it due to financial flow.
Need to think on it

Ive just done the opposite and upgraded my daily. The daily ive had for the last 12 months cost me 400 (406 hdi estate se model 2003) which ive just sold for 300 after a car had rolled into it damaging the bonnet. Ive now upgraded to a 2005 focus tdci (1 previous owner) for 500.

With your 5k youd have 10x my budget... DO IT

Nice bit of kit and if it wasn't for the fact I had already bought a set of V3's I'd have had these. Archie's a good guy to deal with

Hahaha, deffo a bargain
Tbh I messaged Archie when he mentioned it on his project thread and says he's waiting for his new ones to arrive and then he's ready, so I said ok cool let me know so I can have first refusal.
Month or so later, he pmd me ready, but unfortunately I was lack on funds then as usual, so I said I can't afford them ATM so just list them instead, I was gutted.
I kept watching the sale thread without bumping it lol as I dint want to attract it, but seeing it being potentially selling was nervraking lol.
So as nobody had bitten so far, I was near in getting some funds sorted, so I messaged him and we sorted it.
So after all that time, I still ended up with them, so I suppose it was meant to be lol and has lifted my spirit back up with the car
Now I need to start saving again for short motor

Had a spare hour or two after work so decided to make a start fitting them, only managed to put the fronts on in the time I had, I'll fit rears another day.
Well pleased with them,











Anybody want to buy my old tien crap coilovers? They have upgraded hard *** swift springs and adjustable top mounts also.

Finally fitted the Gucci suspension yesterday, it was a pain getting to the rear top hats with all the car parts in there and no reclining seats lol.
What I have noticed is the rear suspension have a lot longer perch/body, took old ones off and just slid nicely out of hub, put new ones on and had to compress the shock as it was longer to get the hub bolts in, strangely the rear tyres looks like it's going to rub the arch, now because the cars not mobile I'm wondering if it's because it's such a longer perch than before, when putting car back on ground the hub is still at positive camber and may need driving to set back the hub from being at such a positive camber while in the air?
What do you think?
I have put the rear top plates at max negative. (More in towards car) or I hope I haven't put the top plates on wrong lol, but I believe the rears are both sided, it's the fronts that are sided only which I believe I've got correct, I don't see a issue up front tbh as the wheel clearance and angle is fine. (But the front suspension are not as tall compared to the rears I've changed.
Maybe I'm a bit worried before letting it sit correctly when it's not mobile ATM.

Any opinions to make me feel at ease?
