you start building a 1700bhp granada






[QUOTE=Zzz...Zzz;3177686]After several years of faithfull service, i wanted something new..

I was about to buy a fully prepped r32 skyline from japan, but made a last minute decision - everybody can buy a car, but not everbody can modify a car... so i opted for contiuning with the old ford... after all i have owned it for 12 years and am quite fond of it! ;-P

We will give it new just about everything basicly, as you will see on the pictures attachecd here.

Engine will be based on a heavily reinforced twin turbo charged koeniggsegg ccx engine.

No photos of this engine will be shown before the car is comleted, but i can tell you that it looks pretty good







new rear suspension off a 2004 ,mustang cobra R












WE had to make som space..





dummy engine on place :
