The intention was to use it mostly as a street car, though obviously there does need to be some motorsport involved to keep the MANZ card. As far as I was aware having the card makes it ok, the guy building the cage knows what I want it for, and he's heavily involved with the car club up here and ta...

Yeah I did think about that. There are smaller sized blowers you can get for classic cars and stuff that I could just squeeze in somewhere and duct up to the windscreen. Without the stock blower/heater/AC crap there will be plenty of room for other things.

No seatbelts, have to go harness. I did think about getting a bar put across at the front but thought it'd make getting some sort of dash in even harder, figured that without the black box in the engine bay there will be room to put a bar across between the front towers. Was planning on getting one ...

Do you mean pretending to have sponsorship? Or actually getting some?
If I got sponsors I might actually have to do something serious with the car.

I'll go check on the cage this afternoon and get some pictures, probably post them tomorrow. Obviously since I'm putting in a cage and harness, new engine? etc I'm not too fussed about keeping stock appearance, and I thought white might be a bit boring. The car has had its 'carnival yellow' paint jo...

Bit of progress, the roll cage is coming along very nicely, should be done by the end of this week, hopefully. Now keeping an eye on trademe for some suitable seats, and we'll be all go. Next question is one of paint, someone at work suggested painting it John Deere green, obviously with yellow whee...

Yeah he had one made by someone, paid quite a bit for it and it only let the flapper open about 40degrees, made it overboost pretty badly.


Ha. That would explain why it was hitting 20psi before I took it off the road!

That's my turbo with the bent fin, it's a bit of a pain to get it off the engine while the engine's still in the car, there are some pictures here that should help you a bit: http://www.cityturbo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2137

Here's a picture of the fuel pump roughly in place. Obviously the fuel tank's been removed and the metal shield that runs underneath the pump, but it gives you an idea of the location and orientation.
