Tim's Widebody/Gibson replica N12 EXA '83

Post by Insane_N12 » Wed Aug 17, 2011 8:30 pm

Name: Tim

Location: Sydney

A bit of interest has been shown to put up another build thread, so i will, i know some people wont appreciate it, but i love it, its my pride and joy, i have worked very hard to get the car to where it is, so im happy to show it as regestration is coming up very soon and the car will finally be back on the road.
I first got the N12 virus back in 2006 when i bought my first one for $500, the car was totally stuffed and i worked hard to replace many parts including the engine. Got the car to a running state, enjoyed it for many months, but sadly had to sell. Told myself one day im gunna get another one and create my own personalised N12, and thats what im trying to do. I love em, there so addictive and awesome to drive.
Ill display a few pics from what it was when i purchased it, to the car it is today. Hope yous appreciate what i have done to it.
Ill throw in a few pics from an engine rebuild ive helped conduct with Caterpillar on a 3512B at work to just appreciate some large scale stuff, i find it interesting, and nearly destroyed my back lifting 60kg heads. Cheers

Year/ Model: 1983

Colour: Arctic White

Period of ownership: Since 1st May 2009

Performance: TBA in 3 weeks (when tune is conducted)

Engine Mods: E15ET stroked to 1.7, bigger injectors, turbo, worked head, headers, wasted spark ignition setup etc.

Wheels: 15x8 with toyo proxes T1Rs
