Amey

I agree with you on that. As long as one is happy driving what he or she is, that should be the criteria, alas is not the case in the real world.

I have a fair idea of what my car should put out on the wheels, hence ordered the suspension as well, to handle any brute forces

Having said that, I am in no way into a rat race, as in my car is faster than yours. If I get a decent power delivery, I am happy. KEY word being reliability.

Am sure you agree.

Still waiting for a word from Enigmatic Phil. But I think I want the build to be done well, hence holding my horses !!! EVEN IF I miss the REDLINE2. Though I'd hate to !!!

I hear there is a special category at REDLINE for "senior citizens" ....errrrrr Bhpian's - so I do qualify to enter




Cheers

Yeah even I would like to know what the model of Haltech and the price. Expecting around 800 dollars. These are the parts that will complement your forged internals and high boost later on.

Ya, thanks, I was persuaded to go for the best by Phil, it made sense to me hence went ahead.

Will post the pictures, I do not know individual prices as I dealt with Phil for the whole package. Yes went in for top notch stuff, so that when the "keeda" for more power (if at all) bites, I can go forged & higher boost & still use all of these parts.




Cheerio

I saw your big bag of goodies , The parts fitments should not take too long, Most of it seems bolt on!

I have some pic's if you want them.

You lucky guy Sure, why don't you post the pics or mail them to me.

Ya everything that was ordered is pretty much bolt on. Infact I had a little looksie today, unfortunately Phil was not there. I could not stop smiling to myself.

# The exhaust system was fitted - from header to tail pipe.
# The turbo was fitted :-)
# The FPR was being fitted
# Water & oil pipe to the turbo were being done

I was very impressed with the fit & finish of the stuff, as also the quality of the supplementary stuff. All bolts, nuts, clamps & whatever else came with the package.

Keeping my fingers crossed & hoping that the car is ready in the next 2-3 days !!

Thanks Phil for making it happen !!!



Cheers

Default Pics at last !!

Here are some of the pics of random stuff. Which would give you some idea of what all is going into the build.

Still need to reduce picture size to be able to upload. Hopefully should do it tomorrow.

Let me know what you gentlemen make of it


Cheers

Coilovers look like Tein. Plus the box behind the Garrett says so.
