Default sup, ASL?

So I guess I should make a post to say howdy

I’ve been a long time lurker and gleaned loads of information off of the forum, and I guess it’s time to start posting…

I’m Rick, I’m from the UK and I gots me a Eunos.

I bought it from a buddy of mine for not much money so I could fool about with it at the weekends and not be in crippling dept when I break things.

Long term plan is to have myself a reliable track car running about 250hp on a FMII setup using the GT28r from my old S15 (is this a reasonable expectation?).

I’m lucky enough to travel to Texas quite a bit through work - so I plan on buying things state side and carting them back in my luggage to save the disgusting import taxes we have to pay in the UK.

I’ve started a little blog about it if anyone wants to see pics/progress.

Anyway, sup?

The banner is temporary. I need to find the time to sort the layout and put things on it.

And yes! Starlets are awesome. I miss mine hard - 300hp on a td06-20g. It was ------- hilarious.

18psi, I'm so hard for you right now. I've got my thumb in to the knuckle.

I was expecting noob pwnage on this thread, what a relief

Car looks, well like an H reg Eunos would, a bit tatty, but I like the plans, looks forward to seeing the progress!

(Have you also signed up on MX5Nutz?)
