@ Ricky_63 : Cosmetic makeover, have a look. Will have only small changes and a brand new spray of paint of-course. Also shall be smokking out the headlamps like I see on your car

Where are you getting the paint done ?? Speedsport or elsewhere ? I see that you are adding the "Jaali wali grill" too !

Looking forward to the video !!




Cheers

This is what dreams are made of.

You seldom find such clean Citys these days. This one is mint. And now with that new B16 engine plonked right where it should be, those wheels and that braking system, it's phenomenal! I'd love to listen to that exhaust at high revs.

Any plans on doing something on the inside? Sparco/Recaro seats? Get a roll-cage for that added-effect.

Color is still not decided, I may keep this color only. Looks good and is the ultimate sleeper.

Thanks, the sound too die for in this car is when the VTEC kicks in. Might put in Sparco racing seat no roll cage for sure.

Nice video !! I see someone holding on for dear life in the front passenger seat - now who might that be ??

During this shoot the windows are rolled up right ? The exhaust note one hears is nice - wonder how loud she is with the windows down !!

Thanks, it goes even better now. This video is with the older exhaust and initial stages of tunning, Revs a lot better post VTEC. New video come up soon. You can notice the clutch slipping when shifting from first to second.

Dont know about BMWs, I caught up with a Merc C250 CDI recently and gave that dude a shock of his life. He was so embarrassed that he had to take a left/right and not continue racing with me

Sneak peak of some of the parts that came in for the next stage of Mods on this car. More parts coming in. Once everything is here, we shall rip everything apart again and start the Phase-2 of the project

Nice !! You think it is not fast enough yet !! With forged internals AND a blower it should be quite an unmanageable amount of power !!

I suggest you join the Speedsport School of Rallying before you attempt to drive this monster of a car !!

The Car overheated and was sent back to the workshop, dont know exactly the cause of it yet. Waiting for Phil to confirm. I really hope its not something major as parts sourcing for this engine is a big time consuming task.

Oh man that's too bad. When did this happen? Were you shifting the car when it happened or just trundling about? Is it a blown gasket? I seriously hope it isn't. It would be a real pain to source one for the B16 lump. Did this happen after the 'phase-2' mods?
