Default Redturbo's Turd of a Greddy Car

Well im going to move my build thread over here from MFz, so bear with me. I am by no means a good at taking pictures.
The way i got it, failure based system of bandaids, RRFPR, MSD Timing Box.


Putting a new radiator in it

Some autocross runs

some little mods to pass some time


Put a second radiator and intercooler in after a raccoon ran into it at 65mph.
brake upgrade arrived
Received a large package from fedex. i present Cspence's Brake setup.


this is what it looks like when the brake fluid has leaked for a while

Difference between 1.6 and 1.8 brakes.

the tie rod ends needed done.
From This

to this

to this

And finally

While waiting for the paint i cleaned up these.


from dirty like so

to nice and clean (sorta)


bmw vtps installed

shinned up the door sills

still have to finish the switch plate but everything on the inside is mostly complete.

switch panel

Got the intake off today, im replacing that sad excuse for an oil return, but getting to it was a bitch. look real close to behind the alternator.

moved the fuse box and found...

today i had to take the turbo back off and re tap one of the holes. ended up retapping all of the holes, and rethreading all of the bolts.
mounted the cruise control back in
and put the fuse block back on its freshly painted stand



Painted the Intake
