Posting my build, which is done until I can learn to tune. I paid $700 for the car two years ago with an ebay intake/header/exhaust, ran fine, no leaks or rust, just needed new axles to pass inspection.

As you can see.. When I first picked her up, she wasn't being taken care of:

But then I bought her and started treating her right.. First build was a cheap ebay kit to 260whp because I wasn't able to keep her at the time..

I blew the motor and found out I could keep her all at the same time, so then I started taking the build a little more seriously..

That is some build! what kind of figures are you expecting once done?

Thanks Chris! I may be in the UK in a few days, any races or events going on this weekend? As for the car, I'm not expecting more than 400hp at the wheels. I intentionally went with a smaller compressor because of the road conditions and tracks they have here. Once I get back stateside I may convert it to AWD and install a larger snail with two maps for street and racing. I love to build but I can't stand the thought of not being able to drive it!

There's the British super bikes at Oulton Park and the British touring cars at Rockingham this weekend, next weekend there's the British drift championship feeder series Drift cup on at Driftland in Scotland, probably plenty more that's all I have to hand just now.

Have you thought about a traction control strategy instead of 4WD?

I'm always open to options. I'm comfortable with awd setups but don't have much experience with fwd with traction control. I'll definitely be exploring things as I progress in tuning :)
