Bit of progress


Justy weighed down with gear to pod


Justy got some nice attention at USC, favorite comments got to be 'thats a swift that is' no its a justy but I will forgive you if you didnt spot the AWD stickers


Evil little car

Still got loads to do but its primarily working for now

Small update, I really wish I could sort ecu to accept that it will have boost, turned the fuel pressure up again and its helped boost but now bogs a little more and obviously fuel usage is stupid now but it was built to go psssh!! LOL


Jacked up ready for new clutch, gearbox and lightened flywheel after a unfortunate failure


New shiny parts, lightened flywheel - minus around 1kg but proberly lighter with lighter black diamond stage 2 kevlar clutch


Favorite car pic (looks nowt like a justy)


New bigger exhaust, not ideal but needs must

Hating bedding clutch in also got a intermittent water leak thats hopefully cured but ive had to run k seal, hating it but needs must

Il hopefully have more going on soon, and cant wait for some snow

Recently alots changed, lack of funds,job etc have made some differences, theres only so much cheap jobs on cars you can do with your time. Been a while since ive posted progress, things have changed again, although the 8v turbo is working well, it isnt in top form it needs a ecu mod thats gonna cost money so ive made the decision to swap for a swift gti engine again but this time turbod

Few toys I got other day courtesy of a nice chap on eBay and big ryan for the collection service



All my new bits




Head during cleaning



Hoping I can use this turbosmart dumpvalve

Plan is to build this turbo and proberly rebuild my gti lump out of the 2012 green beasty over winter depending on funds

USC 2014 will hopefully be epic!!

This looks awesome, wish I could stockpile a load of parts like u and build something sick lol, can't wait to give u a hand getting stuck in to a 16v build, and yeah that timming looks like it's gonna be funny, on Dori. I used the dowl pin as a reference point to work original timing and then worked from that, but can't see em on your photos, :-( I'll have to pop up to yours and have a play day lol ;-)

Bit of another update, time is slow and with a lack of funds not very much has changed


AWD works at least (click for video)


Warm way to change water-pump in the cold


New VS Old


She decided to not like the timing spring fitted so kindly ingested it knocking the timing forward 60degrees


A ride on tow came as a result, I really think DIY should get a truck or at least the awesome dollies this guy had!!!  affraid  affraid 


Caliper re-build time

I now have a few new toys to hopefully build a powerful enough engine that is reliable too

including some more injectors, a Greddy E-MANAGE Blue ECU, hard boost pipe made for the job and HKS recirculating dump valve
Along with the masses of knowledge obtained hopefully this will be a reality soon depending on the budgets

Turbo T2 manifold


Rocker all painted up


Twin core alloy radiator



Radiator all painted


Throttle body ported out a little to match inlet a little better (every little help)

Nobody knows where any my cars can end up  Twisted Evil

New stickers look well


Think ive found my window issues


Frames are in and ready for the sidemount fibreglass seats to go in


Looking very bare but light!!


Another 2kg out. Wish dieting was this easy


New brakelines are ready to be fitted


Passenger kick plates in for the arse twitching moments


Fibreglass seats are going black


Drivers seat and harness is in!!


Nice race engine mount, going to vibrate like a twat


Nice small dump valve, biggers better right???


Quick release bumper


New console


All lit up

So thats about it for now loads has happened but slightly on a sideline to the original plan but adaptations to plabs were expected

well bit of an update, things are still slow with the justy as always,
it made it to pod but didn't do as well as expected but after all its a homebrew 1.3 8v turbo

looks a little different to when my brother took it last time!!!



it did us proud in the flameout contest though, it came 2nd in our opinion. next year we will beat the long term winner


she looks so well I cant wait for it to go as good




New roll cage reinforcements cheers



new rear tie bars, really seem to make a difference but needs alignment now to get the best out of it bounce cheers bounce


New external fuel line and filter setup, god im glad I've finally done it, it actually smells of car now instead of leaching petrol coming through the porous rubber lines

now to just continue getting the other engine parts and begin building, fed up now of no progress

Well things are moving a little now, ive decided to finally rebuild the rear axles so two arms are on order, polybushes have arrived and things are happening.



Loving flames now, makes me strangely happy it overfuels



Rear worn bearing removed surprisingly easy with a little hammer persuasion,  no press needed today cheers



All stripped, cleaned and painted up, just wish paint would dry quicker with this lousy weather so I can get it rebuilt ready to go bak on What a Face

Not too sure how much longer shes out on the road for so hopefully more big news soon
