been driving round for a few days now. ive put 400klms on her clock braking in the clutch. going good.
still not running an intercooler...
got a wheel alignment she handles so much better now. but i found out a few bushings are toast. does any one know of a cheap place to get bushes? just wanna see if my local shop is ripping me off?
car pulls great boost comes on hard bout 3.5k all the way till 5,5k where it starts to run out of puff.
but the car is always back firing when i lift off the throttle. doesnt bother me but is this normal?
its a full gen 3 swap running a walbro 255lph pump...
once im more finanical (month or two) im gonna go aircon bushings rear shocks air con..
after those nesscaities its onto bost gauges and controllers etc.
currently enjoying braking her in. havnt been on a hard run yet just boosting here and there trying to take it easy

up to about 1200klms. so far so good. put in my royal purple new plugs and leads and a k&n oil filter. so far so good.
touch wood no leaks and isnt using much oil or coolant so looking good.
just curious what u guys think of turbo timers a good investment or over rated?
was going to dyno the car today to see how many of the 250hp make it to the wheels after 20 yrs lol

Ok so to rebuild the teins with softer springs is $1100.
What are some standard rear shocks around as nearly no one up here sells em? Ie pedder doesn't autobarn and repco don't Monroe don't. Any ideas?
