yeah gt35r. it needed drilling so had to be done. was debating using one of those attachments that go into a silicone pipe. think tweeks sell them. but id rather have proper connections. next up have to drill and tap the inlet manifold for vacuum aswell.

green wheels are the future.

thought id do the sunday car wash thing. disaster struck. sponge frozen in bucket, took a while to defrost the sponge. got that done. went to get hose out. frozen so no water from hose. sod it, ghetto bucket job.





and after all the years i took the piss out of irmy..................bloody only went and bought an irmy grill for it.



wheels are what was on it when i got it. shame it doesnt have the std gsi ones really. i plan to fit some of these to it though



can get them from my work for quite cheap, and ive got 4 tyres already for them so wont work out much over 350 all in.

first mod that got done to the vectra was this.





a tow bar. for the purposes of this.......



means i can move the car and tools etc places quite easily. top car the vectra. one of the best cars ive ever bought. so comfy sitting in them recaro's, its a gsi so 192bhp. not amazingly fast, but its quick enough. most importantly for me its virtually effortless to drive.

only beef i had was i had to get a mate to machine me some 5mm spacers up to clear the wheel as the caliper was catching it. oddly only the green speedlines caught, the silver ones with normal tyres on didnt. weird i thought.

rob is a decent fella. always has some crazy stories of racing stuff or driving in the subaru. half the hedges and walls knocked down on the way to sedburgh seem to be him and his mates.

ah yeah i remember it now. jeff was showing me it one day a few months back. i like them 2 at pritchards. that race car they have, always like the stories about what they have got up to.

hello eck, corsa is just waiting on the turbo and inlet finishing, ive no idea what it will do this time or if the throttle bodies etc will work that great really. depending on if parts turn up, might be ready for mapping in a few weeks or at the end of the month id hope. who knows. its all money im struggling to find at the minute.
