My White Evo IX GT

Hi guys

Picked up my new Evo from Capt.Mike yesterday and loving it so far!

Firstly I'll show you my previous car - A Corsa C with a bit of a twist...

Started off as a standard 1.8 SRi and ended up with a 420bhp Astra VXR engine with a GT3076 :lol:

Won't bore you with lots of pics but here's what it was like

Respray (originally black):

Total Vauxhall photoshoot:

Engine (fully forged etc)

Anyway onto the Evo :D

Just as I was about to drive off from Mike's house

We then went out and did some night time photography :)

Back home for its first wash

and a few more random ones :)

Plans are:

- New wheels, probably Rota Grid Drifts in 9.5J
- Re-paint bonnet and front bumper due to stone chips
- Some carbon goodness
- Enjoy it :)

Would like to say a special thanks to Mike for being so helpful throughout the process of buying it and to his neighbour Ray for taking time to be there when I picked it up due to Mike being away :)

Nice. Wheels look lost in there tho to me :eek:are they 17's with really low profile tyres?
i think your risking it (alot). what is the torque? and how early? any setup to soften torque spike?
boost is irelevant if its too much torque too early snap. yours looks ok though.:smthumbup
bet you cant wait for rods

Who's mapping it Matt?
you will have more love for that turbo kit when it's optimised:lol::smthumbup
Nice. Perfect I'd like to run like that low boost and flying.
Love it. Rapid cars at this level. You'll quickly become accustomed to twin plate. Which one was it again?
Enjoy the sweet beast matt
Was it dead after 7k?
Is that the Motorsport grade turbo you got too?:eek: :smthumbup

Just checked same clutch as me, a little juddery in first but liveable shifting is a dream tho.
Get a 30-130 done;):naughty:
Wow what an awesome car and build :smthumbup credit to you and all involved mate :smthumbup

Your clutch is a super clutch lee much lighter :smthumbup
Doh, shoot of course. :wallbang: :lol:
