So since not post posting on this site for quite some time i thought i may do a little up date. Well unfortunately not a great deal has happened since my last post. I now have the gt3071 on a steampipe manifold that we made up then i sent it down to get ceramic coated along with the turbo. Got some 600cc with a turbosmart fuel regulator injectors to help it out, pulled out the butterflys and played around with a die grinder and some flapper wheels. To look after the boost i got a turbosmart hyper gate 48 and i installed a eboost2 that fits nicely in to the drivers side air vent. Ive played around and managed to mount the rx7 seats in place(i thinks they sit just a little bit to high so one day ill cut just a little bit of foam out of them) new hood lining in and also the surge tank and pumps set up. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a SSS grill after a massive ebay bidding war(possibly with one of you fellas). Mounted up the retractable seat bealts and mounted the hand brake on the floor. Set up some 6x9 kicker speackers in the parcel shelf.

So this weekend ill be getting a road tune done and ill be trying to get it all engineered

Well on the net the falcon gt-f does a 12.5 quarter mile so im sure that ill have to open the engine up and forge it. But still i wouldnt have spent $125k to get there like he did
