Thanks,iv ordered the front arches so waiting for them to arrive...they're not going to be as far out from the body as the back if you know what I mean

Last couple of days I haven't done alot of physical stuff on the Capri,its mainly been measuring and planning,I'm going for 2 single ally intercoolers for a Nissan 300zx twin turbo.for 2 reasons
1.the twin turbo intercoolers iv seen are alittle to long fit infront of the radiator
2.they fit rather nicely under each wing if I decide to put them there this has a benefit of not been around any sort of heat so heat absorption is minimized

Also I'm looking at going blow thru carb with a extreme velocity tophat its old school yes but its easier to set up and people iv spoke to that have got them have had great results,ill be be getting what I need plus exhaust off summit racing.even with the import tax they're still a good place to go

Summit are pretty decent and seem to have better prices than direct from manufacturers. I've got some stuff from there too.. they have everthing!

The Renault 5 intercooler is a decent option for wing area mounted intercooler. Considering one of those myself to go between turbo and supercharger.

been a while since I was on here..I've had nothing but problems with photobucket so can't download pics..
The rv8 has gone to a new home...with the turbos i was going to fitI was looking at about 400bhp and to get anything over that ment spending a lot more money.so bang for buck and all that

So a trip to Essex has seen me getting a sbc 350 engine and a 385 stroker kit off ebay including
Forged 40+ pistons
Forged H rods
Stroker crank
Crane high lift cam and lifters
Ally performance heads
Weiand stealth manifold
750cfm edelbrock 4 barrel
Should see me to 450+ bhp n/a
