im not very clued up about engine terms ect so ill do my best.

Fully rebuilt by longmans. xzara vts box, launch control, lsd, tuned to 400ft/lb torque.

I have not decided on suspension yet (any ideas)

Brakes are brembo style (not sure what make)

Interior is fully stripped out and painted with omp roll cage and carbon door cards (also from spoox)

roof colour coded to match bonnet and tailgate

fully smoothed sides with subtle steel arches and steel skirts

tinted poly windows with petrol cap mounted in drivers side rear

cybernck: kit comes from POTN 150 a piece

As for the exhaust, you will get maximum air flow on a straight/centre exhaust

im not sure what turbo im having as im clueless about stuff like that but i will find out today


As for my kit its not to late to change my mind, so if anyone wants to give me some ideas, im all ears (but im loosing the kit as this is my 4th 205 and they have all had it and i want a change)

The gearbox is all under control

i was thinking blistein, they are recomended quite often

as far as the engine goes, i dont really need to know much as im just paying and longmans will just give back the engine fully prepared.

it wont be my every day car, thats what my cti-6 is for, but i will surley take people out in it and the main events i will be using it for are usc type events

we have set a target! Pugfest.

I wont be out of pocket as all the bits i have bought, i am paying longmans for a fully rebuilt engine,ive just stripped the car, bodyshop are doing my respray and when its all ready it will go back to pug-performance where they will put it all together for me. so all im paying them for is building this car. im down there twice a week anyways helping out so ill muck in too

oh and i dont have to pay till the end anyway

Its been a while but the progress is still happening and many things have changed.

Due to handing over 25,000 for our new house i have just purchased my car wont be ready for pugfest but will hopefully be ready for usc.

Kit is no longer going on, the wheels are now on my CTI-6 and the Gti is staying mainly standard

My engine is fully rebuilt waiting to be picked up from longmans so no pis as of yet

Perspex tinted windows are on way

Was thinking about buying a new black bump strip and doing a full respray in white and fitting a set of white compomotives, but due to lack of funds it will be done at a later date.

I may make it look like a real t16 if i can find the right kit and spoiler (any ideas where from)

Been looking for one of these and found this 2 miles down the road at a bargain price.

The owner of the vehicle died over 1yr ago and has not been driven since and has been garaged.

It is a minter of a car and drives like a dream with 87000 miles on the clock.

I now have a car for my T16 engine ;)

One week before it goes in for its t16 lump, i get a phone call from the missis.

I knew straight away something was up

She has been hit on a roundabout then pushed in to a wall :) ;)

I am so gutted

just had a call from the old ladies insurance and she has admitted full liability, so they are going to pay out for the repairs.

samsmith - it will be half the price to buy one rather than have one made

I may have sold the old one
