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 :)

Lovely 9 GT,
I was close to buying this car from Mike myself when he had all the ctec parts on it,
I bought Callum's 9 MR RS instead tho, they look very similar

I use Rich at RG aswell, u won't go wrong with him, he knows his evo's very well.

I'll keep my eye on this thread looks like it gonna be a good 1
Lol I bought it fast as there was a lot of interest in it and I had been waiting for the right car to come up.
I like your new comp wheels and the splitter will set it off, I prefer the splitters colour coded to the carbon,
Have U got any more plans for it?
Sounds good mate
Ive got fp71hta tubby on mine, its good but I Might go bigger aswell 1 day

The Ross sport gt3076hta v band kits are the nuts, been in a 6 with 1 before, they sound awesome with tial wastegate

Look forward to seeing your progress
Looks the nuts mate, wheels look great, and its looking super shiny,

What polish/wax do you use, I want to machine polish mine aswell soon
Looking good mate
I'm jealous now lol
GT3076HTA turbos are the nuts

Also the Tial bov's are designed for these bigger turbos kits and external wastegates, it should be fine, most of the time attack evo's run them, I remember asking RG about the Tial a while back and he said I needed a full turbo kit and something else that I can't remember for it to run properly

Are u staying forged 2.0 or going stroker 2.3?
I look forward to seeing it when done
Maybe I'll c ya at a show or meet when it gets a bit warmer

Ive been in a 6 running 2.3, GT3076HTA with a tial wastegate and bov,
They definitely move well and sound amazing, u will have fun with 550+hp lol
