As for modifications its got some

Basic exhaust ,induction , BOV ETc

Blitz suspension,

Recaro seats,

Ecu ( which will need looking at when it gets here) not sure if its remappable .

Mechanical 2 way lsd


Few other bits and pieces but will need to go over it when it gets here

As for any planned by myself

New ECU if needed for safe mapping rather than power. I would be happy with 300 Bhp

Then get it registered and on the road.

Will see what i want to do after that if anything but im more than happy to spend money on getting it running correctly over huge power gains


Oh and change the terrible gear stick surrond it has

You will definately see it coming.

Hoping to have it fully registered by end of July to get to a few shows, Original plan was to have it ready for Japshow on 10th July but not going to be registered in time so will possibly take it up on a trailer as the map will be checked etc and run it on the 1/4 mile will look for a 13s run see what breaks and fix it for the next show


Are you guys having a stand at Japshow?
