Talking Scottish V-Spec saying 'hi'.



Good morning people......

The names Kev, live in Dunfermline, Scotland. Own a 93 V-special Roadster in black which I'll be fitting a GReddy turbo kit to it this weekend. Can't wait.

I've been pouring over your vast banks of knowledge these past few weeks so, fingers crossed, I'll be boosting without mishap before long.

Please be gentle with the noob if he *&*$s it up though and has to come asking why!!

Cheers....Kev

It's a Jap import Eunos Roadster. V-specials came with upgraded trim. Tan leather, a/c, electrics and Nardi kit. It also came with the faux wood trim...nasty. It got ripped out sharpish. BRG and Brilliant black paint.
It sits on NB RS Billies and 15" Lorber deep dish. Seat Leon splitter. A few under bonnet mods, decat and exhaust. GReddy kit is next. Only wanting to give it a bit more straight line oomph so 5psi is all I'm looking at.

Welcome. What part of Scotland? Have you got a spare room if I visit suddenly and unexpectedly?

Seat Leon Cupra splitter. Its used on a lot of cars here. Flexible and fits without to much hassle. Way, WAY cheaper than OEM or JDM kit.

Fitted the GReddy today....oil feed had a split. Pissed oil all over my drive. Fix tomorrow hopefully.

......and stop trying to corrupt an innocent noob Kotomile. 5psi sounds TOP FUEL fast from my starting point.!

I ran the same splitter on my S4. Sadly, in the US, it's about $100 which is about what most of the "popular" lips go for.
