So, I need boost, and lots of it. So i may have purchased one of these :)

Before:


After:


The R53 was a great car but it didnt have 250+ hp

This will not be a half measure car, plans are going to be pretty big and expensive for it!! :lol:

Items like this are complete
Items like this i have bought and not fitted yet

Exterior Mods
R56 Challenge Wing
JCW Kit
Colour code door handles
Colour code light rings
Colour code side vents
Joey mod Black
Blackline real lights
De-badge
Challenge Diffuser
No wheel gap
Atomspeed vented A-Panels
Leap bonnet scoop

Interior Mods
2 x Expensive Bucket seats
Full Safety Devices Cage
Coolerworx Short Shifter
Scangauge II
GP2 Rear seat delete
OMP WRC/ Targa wheel (& OMP Boss) with cruise control function (somehow)

Performance and Handling Mods
Airtec Front Mount IC

JCW Exhaust
BC Racing BRs
Full Alignment/ Corner weighting and all that jazz
K Sport or Yellow Speed BBK

Bigger turbo (Hybrid? [something that will do 300+])
Forged internals

Track alloys- AR-1s
Quaife LSD

This thing will handle better than a challenge car i hope!

I will keep adding to the list when i learn more about these things, but hopfully if the R53 build is anything to go by, this one should be alot better :)

Really like the Pepper white cars

Still stuck on the maths of not spending 10k on a current R53 for turbo kit, yet spending it on another car to get a turbo plus likely the same again on altering it haha,

Anyway, sounding like a great plan, carry on. :thumbup1:

Colin's turbo conversion was nowhere near £10k.

I just got well confused. I was sure you had an R53 and that your build thread was pages long... Then it all became clear

Wow! What a turn of events... Welcome to the 2nd gen world bud. Pepper white is still one of my favourite colours, but i'm biased obviously as my last r56 was pepper white, they tend to beeline towards trees though so be careful...

Look forward to seeing your progress.

Picked it up today :)

Turns out it has as much power as the 53 so i haven't lost anything (apart from money)

Next stage is to get rid of the R53, use the funds to start making this my own :)



Drives really nicely, alot comfier than the R53 and so much fun with the turbo noises!!!
