Project 'Nannygeddon'

Another conversion is on the cards once we finish sourcing some parts. Looking to use the same process that worked on the Badgersport with a greater emphasis on handling.

The car in question is Joz's 5E non-turbo which has gone further into NA tuning than any I have seen. Boost is going to make this one boogie.. ;)

You will soon be like Trev, Jay! :p

I was hoping he was going to finish the 5e build with boddies etc. Followed it over on UKSC.
But switching to turbo does make sense.

All the best lads!
 
I'm really looking forward to this Jay man :rockon:

Not to worry guys, the throttlebodies will live on for another na project (not mine tho).

I've always known the 4EFTE is the spiritual engine that belongs in a starlet so I'm happy to start fresh and appreciate. I've been lucky enough to sample some refined na delights but now its time to push the setup.

I've been in a fair few 5E monsters including mc_chu's purple glanza and I can say I'd still be happy with a 4E ;) I don't regret selling the 5E.

@nangle, we're talking more than just braces ;)

See you early Monday Jaystar with a day pass to Costa :cool:

Update #1 - A Promising Start

We are about 8 hours into the build so far.

The engine bay has been cleared and just needs cleaned in preparation of the 4EFTE. I serviced and compression tested the new powerplant in place and will run it for a few days to ensure all is well. Hoping to remove it from the donor GT next weekend barring any hassles.















Oh and a quick pic of the donor vehicle. Anyone up for a rolling shell?



The pace of this one isn't going to be too fast given the time available at the minute. I'll probably just save the updates till the weekends. Obviously I'd like to be just as fussy with this one as I was with Phil's so attention takes preference over speed. B)
