    Oh no a V8 is still n the cards, but my dad is buying as its going to be his toy
    Lexus may be sold to help fund for one.
    Cars can be a pain in the backside, The hybrid has had quite a few jobs done I can say it was money well spent.

    That was a good top gear episode that one, we used to have a transit mk6 and mk7.
    But it wasn't as quick as that one tho.
    She's just amazing behind the wheel.

    It took JC 3 days to get the time he did in the Jag, with Sabine training. (I did a 10.27 the second time on with the F)

    If I could have her directing me I would take the ZTT.

    That would be good to see, Supercharged and ready for action.

    Just waiting for Kieth now with the hybrid and how much its going to cost.
    If I plan ahead I find what I'll need, I can start saving proply.

    Turbo charged hybrid that kicks ass.

    Just got an email off Kieth and this is what he said.


    Hi David,


    Some facts about your turbo,


    A compressor wheel mod will be about 450.00 to 650.00 and an extra 150.00 for a billet wheel mod, this makes the turbo spin easier.
    To enlarge the exhaust side as well will be an full cost of about 770.00 but enlarging the exhaust you will have a slower spool up.


    A compressor wheel mod will give you about 30 Bhp more
    A full mod will give you about 60 Bhp more


    I personally think that the way to go will be the compressor mod with uprated injectors and a remap. I would estimate that the total cost will be
    about 1200.00 to 1500.00.
    I would need the vehicle for about a week.


    Have a think about it and let me know your thoughts.


    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Keith
