  1. This is my other project. Was a 2.3 redblock turbo, currently a 4.2 audi V8 on a 6 speed BMW manual box and soon to have a couple of turbos...

    i see a 240 (?) square boxy thing on my commute occasionally. it's got a great low stance and a noisy turbo. very cool car.

  4. Not really, the Audi ABZ lump is around 300bhp standard, but I keep seeing these yanks and Aussies doing it and fancy trying for 5-600 bhp

    There aren't too many cars that are so comfy to drive and so easy to make go sideways

  5. I’ll admit I have a liking for those Older Volvo estates
    It’s going to be an animal with that engine boosted

  16. I had a B reg one - £50. lol
    It was terrible... yet great. :thinking:

    It had a rubbish 1800 engine but I picked up a cast iron bath in it that took 4 of us to load and it didn't go any slower.
     
  17. That looks absolutely fab. Love the stance and the period correct Azevs :)

    How does it go? A bit nippy?

  18. Shifts for what it is. Turbo redblock, few bolt on mods, 15psi - sees off the local boy racers in their ST'S :thumbsup:

    The V8's sat in my 245...too many other drains on the bank account to get it running :(
