Makes sense Dave. You put a lot more effort into the ET didn't you?

Location: Sydney
Year/ Model: 1984
Colour: Factory white
Period of ownership: 12 years

Performance: Around 200kW at engine at 1.3 bar.

Engine Mods: EVERYTHING!!! 1.6-litres, E16 crank, shot-peened turbo rods, forged 7.4:1 pistons, O-ringed block, copper head gasket, heavily ported head, heavier valve springs, mild cam, three-angle-cut valves, match ported intake and exhaust manifolds, ExtrudeHoned intake and exhaust manifolds, 5mm oversize throttle body, 550cc injectors, adjustable fuel regulator, Bosch fuel pump, Garrett T25 turbo, water-cooled, custom cross-flow front-mount intercooler behind front bar, Samco hoses, alloy piping with 90-degree mount, Haltech E6A tuned on Silverwater Automotive dyno, HKS racing by-pass valve (venting through K&N), custom stainless drop-pipe, resonator, 2.5-inch exhaust, HKS Hiper muffler. Spent $11,000 on engine!
Battery moved to boot, radiator reservoir relocated to left side,
Standard gearbox - however I spent $3000 on a spare with a 4.2:1 (vs 3.9:1) Nissan Motorsports diff and custom-fitted N13 LSD. (Cannot run speedo though and needs custom driveshafts - put into too hard basket for street car).

Interior Mods: Full Recaro MOMO make-over: Red Recaro SRD seats (ala Integra Type R), MOMO seerring wheel and gearknob, interior condition is immaculate, car has sat in a garage under a car cover for much of the last 10 years. MB Quart speakers, Rockford Fosgate amp, Sony CD deck which, along with HKS exhaust temp and boost gauges are colour matched to the factory gauges. Everything works perfectly, from the demister to the air-conditioning. HKS electronic boost controller with overboost trigger near handbrake (from 1.0 to 1.3 bar). Levoc full-auto turbo timer.
ET Pulsar driver's footrest, with Levoc pedals. ET Pulsar centre console housing graphic equaliser and spectrum analyser.

Exterior Mods: Debadged (as we know, there are many of them!) destickered (ditto), tinted lights, lipped guards, MX-5 quarter-panel indicators, SVD stickers, red stripe (ala Porsche 911 GT3 RS), new bumpers, colour matched mirrors, bonnet vents, pop-up surrounds, wiper jets (and wipers, though not sure about them).

Wheels: 17x7 MOMO Tuner, 215/40 Falken.

Other: Full brake conversion: Prairie front vented and ET rear discs/arms and sway bar conversion, with ET master cylinder. Lowered King springs. Fully engineered as is. Spent around $60,000 over a 10 year period, lots of trials and errors and fixes, wrote off two previous white EXAs before finally finishing this one. 131,000km original, about 500km since engine built. Planning to feature in magazines and sell.
Power output is around 150kW at wheels on 1.0 bar, so have estimated around 200kW at the engine on 1.3 bar. Welcome to torque-steer country! :twisted:

Future Plans: Sell, looking around $16,000 - about a quarter of what's been spent. Not using it anymore, seems a waste.
