Stage 2 Turbo Project - Started

Dropped the car off GT Auto this morning and had a brief discussion with Toby, after that I hitched a ride with David and headed off straight to the office.

Finally we're starting the long awaited stage 2 turbo project, the car will be off the streets for the next couple of months and we'll be lucky if Toby can return the car to me by March or April.

Lots of other stuffs will be going in as well such as a standalone engine management, a manual transmission, boron nitride spray, port & polish and a Racepak IQ3 dash display. We're also planning to use Haltech's full range of sensors independent to the car's stock sensors for increased accuracy.

The car would also need some work done on the aerodynamics, there was a couple of times the car was doing over 200 km/h and there wasn't enough down force to keep the car planted to the ground so I had to back it off.

Damn depressed they put my car next to a Skyline
Makes me feel like a little lamb :P

The car might have a chance to be featured in an Australian car magazine if everything goes well as planned.
