wheyy.. shes back

Done a few things to her since my last update..

I just about managed to make it to edition last year after having a nightmare with my gearbox..

I found myself a nice deisle turbo gearbox 'CTN' and WHAT a difference that makes to the shitty g60 box.. It really suits the g60 1st and 2nd are longer with a nice 3rd n 4th..

I replaced my botched exhaust with a nice powerflow custom jobby with a cool lil tailpipe Smile 2.5inch, decat, n the smallest middle box they coud find Twisted Evil



next was the intercooler.. i was never happy with the sprinter so i went for one of those universal jobbies of the interwebzz.. another great upgrade cheers
Ps. its not straight buh who gives a crap its behind the gril ??



MOT time

I avoided the old mot and put her back to hibernation untill i got some bits n bobs



Painted the cage


I had a few niggles to get it through the mot... main one being the handbreak ? took them 4days and 3 tests to get it up to scratch 'gimps'.. the raised the car becase the springs were not in the top cup thingy when it was jacked up wtf ??

I had one advisory..... Exhaust to loud. hahaaaaaa lol!

i lowerd it back down 10 minutes after getting it back... grabed my wash mitt n drying towel and headed for tescos jetwash..



TWWWO Days later.. i see smoke coming from my bay and dash. Turned out.. my heavy right foot and the nice new gearbox i blew an oil seal in the charger Rolling Eyes so im now rolling in a Lowcompresion N/A 1.8 8v. ohhh the fun lmao...

Think that brings you uptodate in my goingings on..

Haaahaa just looked through my posts.. the 16vt idea crept away when i realised i didnt have 5k lmao

When i get the charger sent off and back i rekon a trip to the nomads is a good way off running it in Very Happy
