Finally getting round to starting a thread for the red ranger.
You all know this car as Sam's, he made an epic job on it and it has not wanted for anything and has been well looked after.
I've been pretty busy this summer parting out the 53 and putting it back to standard.
So far I haven't done much to it, apart from replaced all sensors,plugs, coil packs and fitted a system and strut brace.

I have some future plans, but does not need much to be honest,
First will install a meth kit and secondly will purchase a second set of wheels.
I have been looking at these, but it's not looking to promising with the bbk.

Thanks mate, I might order one to see if it fits, but supplier is a bit optimistic.

They are 17x 7.5 et42 and will go with 215/45/17 ad08's for the chunky look.

Looks excellent. Did you take those first few photos yourself? Love them! So sharp... I need me a new lens.

Finally !

I miss this car so much, glad you have it though and will make it even better :thumbup1:
Thanks Sam, I'm not surprised you miss it, but the GP is awesome too. I will let you have a blast at the next meet. :tongue_smilie:

At the moment it's not something I'm looking at, but who knows....I haven't done any research into bigger turbo's yet, would it be a case of bolting on & remapping or is it more involved?
I would defiantly like to get it around 300, so whether that's different cam's, or bigger valves or bigger turbo, it will be something I will be probably looking at next summer.
