Nice car you have there! As a Jap-wheel-searching-CS-driver, I'd like to know which size and offset those Weds are (and the need of spacers?).. V nice car! 8)

17 by 7.5 and offset is 45. You dont need spacers but to fill the guards 20mm spacers would do the trick.

Meurz you car is got to be one of the finest red CS I have ever seen. Nice find.

Thanks! :) Can you post or PM some pics of your Weds fitted please? So you're saying the Gram Lights 17x7.5 +40 I'm looking @ wont be a problem but 20mm spacers fill the rear perfectly? Cool 8)

BTW, looks like you have the cast SA-90. The forged ones are only available in 18 or 19" according to Gruppe-S.com? Very nice wheels though :notworthy:

It has been awhile :doh: ..... still not 100% finished but its alive and kicking. Decided to take some pics since its been a long time since the the car has seen any daylight.

Car is very dusty and I still need to install the driver side mirror.
You cant imagine how tempting it is to take the car for a little spin but Puffy needs to behave until rego is sorted.

No comment on the wheels :twisted: but that's a great example of how to get money invested the right way :D
And... heat-wrap that manifold... NOW! ;)
When in doubt - increase boost.

smog7 - No problems with heat as I put a heat mat on my original Group A hood just incase.
The CF hood I have yet to do the same but so far seems to deal with the heat ok. Might do so just to play it safe.

ST185pingo - Cheers mate..... really like the look of your car also. Tyres are Falken RT215 semi slicks.
FMIC had better intake temps but took alot longer to recover when heat soaked whilst the WTA easily heat soaked it recovered much quicker.
FMIC wieghs alot less also. Turbo is a Garrett thats based on a HKS 3037S

Thanks to all for the positive comments.

Only managed to get a base tune before the original radiator blew. Not wanting to waste the day I found a replacement by the afternoon and on its first run we had an injector o-ring give way so we called it a day and didnt get any numbers :(

I totally rewired the car to get it the way it is. Fuses & relays are now in the glove box and removed AC & ABS. Using an EMS helps too as it gets rid of AFMs and the need for resisters etc. Piping was custom made and the hood is a FI one. Its a real shame they dont make these anymore as when I compare it to the original Group A hood its a damn good replica and weighs so much less.
