Recommended Posts

I've just bought a standard K-plate GT-i...where are the best (any will do) places around for styling and tuning...gonna start with suspension and some clear side and bumper indicator lenses...also fancy the red/white rear clusters

Wouldnt mind getting some Samco hoses too for show as the engine bay is mint!

...I already know of Fensport B)

Welcome to the club Pan - good to see another southwalian on here - all going well with sw-cc? You could always take a look at http://www.boostertuning.com/ a Belgian company but you can get parts from them.

The Japanese Auto Extravaganza (JAE) is on this weekend at Billing Aquadrome near Northampton - the largest gathering of Japanese cars in the UK this year (more info here http://www.japcarclub.com/jae/). If you can get there you can take a look at Dawseys GTi with the 2 litre turbo engine from a Celica GT4 - that's pushing out 300bhp. Maybe you would like to check out Nad's GTi with a twincharged 1.6 litre engine - yes that's right a supercharger and a turbo - that's about 250bhp. You can see both of these on the Fensport stand. There will no doubt be other GTis there as well.

A great weekend especially if it doesn't rain too much.

I have a CD deck and tape deck in the dash...double din...is it possible to replace the CD deck with an aftermarket one and still run the tape player alongside? :unsure: ...also...I've not really had a bash yet but how on earth do I remove them?

...it's all a bit well fitted compared to my Nova :D

Pan here's a pic of Dawsey's motor taken at JAE last weekend - it's as far as anyone has gone with a GTi

Engine is a 2 litre turbo lump from a Celica GT4. He had a chassis dyno test at JAE - putting out in excess of 300bhp. Celica suspension, big disk brake kit - it's the dogs danglies of the Rolla GTi world. Makes me wish sometimes that I'd kept mine.
