Hi I'm Mark, New to the page. Got this for a steal at £200.

 

slowly doing bits to her and giving her some much needed TLC

 

Will be adding a turbo kit to her in the next few weeks.

 

If anyone is aware of any Pirates black bumpers going please let me know.

 

 

Cheers

It was a lot worse mate. This was probably a year later..

 

it needed new exhaust and new clutch and the standard cam seal oil leak...but still a bit of a steal.

 

Will do the cosmetic stuff once I can source good parts for reasonable prices

Image of engine bay before I purchased the car.

 

Painted the rocker cover....Before I took it to one of them car washes for a "steam clean" turns out they used a jet wash and got rid of all my hard work and got water in sparks etc...(never again). Haven't taken a picture since the bay has been cleaned and paint removed cry.gif1

 

Have since removed the a/c unit as was not working and to make room for the turbo.

Looks like it's coming on well.

Not being critical but I'd have saved the cash for the skunk intake and splashed out on a decent exhaust manifold.

I fear that will constantly be cracking.

Looks good tho.

Probably right mate. Was just a cheap eBay kit. If it cracks IL buy again. If it cracks again IL spend more

That's fair mate. Did you buy the kit as a complete package?

Yeah mate. Not sure how well it will hold out but I'm sure will do a job. Had to buy few things like injectors, ecu etc

Yeah sure it'll work fine. Just the longevity isn't it. As you say when something breaks... Upgrade it.

You'll be hooked once got a bit of boost!!!
