RED TOP N12! Mate, you're a legend!

I wonder how it handles and brakes compared to an N12... :lol:

I have never weighed it but have read it ways in at around 800-850kg.
As for breaking i have changed over the front breaks to the ones off the n12 so should pull up alright. Not sure bout the handling will be interesting.

I thought it was about time for an update. The car has been sitting in my shed for awhile untouched as we have been renovating our house and just didnt have the time.
Since my original post i have installed a water to air intercooler, it just needs to have the cooler pipes welded up and the water lines run. The cooler came with 2.25" inlets but to fit it in where i wanted i had one end cut off and a 3" bit of pipe welded on. This meant the outlet was the same size as the TB and i didnt need a reducer. i have also started to tidy up the engine bay by moving the radiator overflow to under the front fender and rerouting some of the wiring.
Still a long way to go but getting there slowly.
