Well, for now, new exhaust, new wheels, RS air filter box upgrade. Just wanna get that sweet sound for the time being before I even think about playing with the engine. The ponies would be nice but its pretty quick as it sits right now…..

for me handling is much more important than power and going fast in a straight line , first thing I did with this one was lsd and rs clutch and block mod before even thinking about power 🤔

Keeping it planted and on the black stuff is much more important than going fast in a straight line 🥰

The st’s do lol , I decided that this is probably the last performance car I’ll own , I found the best shell I could and I’ve chucked the kitchen sink at it while keeping it reasonably powered for now , I will forge the engine and go 400r at some point next year though 🙈

Or find a well paid job lol. Yeah, I get ya……. I have my list for now….
The trick is to do as much yourself as you can and get second hand parts there is always st’s being put back to standard so they sell better 🤔 and when I did all the suspension etc I collected all the parts over 6months and then had them all put on in one go to cut down the labour cost 👍

Yeah everything I’ve done so far I’ve done myself. I’ll at least try and then ask for help if its beyond my capability.
