hello again , not much progress with the bodywork :cry: the insurance... doesn`t have money :shock: to give me.. at least... that`s what they are saying !
Changed the lower arm bushes and balljoints ... did a little work at the driveshafts ! and a little work on the back ! had a little trouble with the hoses from turbo to the intercooler.. they were loose .. so all it`s fine now ... 0-100 km/h happens in 8.5 sec , maybe better in good conditions ! my target was to beat a stock valver ! now.. that`s no problem now... it will be easy.. getting it to do 60mph in 6.5 sec.. will be the next challenge ! also.. to pull hard all the way to the top speed!

after a long time... of searching ... found one of the few.. existing ones ;D in search of a bigger intercooler... and in search of money for the clutch ... and i decided.. it needs a rollcage ... so until spring ... it is work to be done ;D

Image

But like... many things on this car... it doesn`t fit perfectly ... ( it is made out of fiberglass ... i was told.. it was made by a maniac.. in 90`s ... he made a mold.. and made 2 or 3 body kits ... put it beside an original one and didn`t spot a difference !)

Image

new parts are in
new exhaust
new gearbox (BE3 -td )
termo band for the exhaust
new simota air filter

in coming
new intercooler
new clutch
new recaro seat(only for the driver... the rest can hold on :lol: )
new light weight rims

and other minor stuff

Just a few questions:

Where do you need rollcage for? Im quite sure your BX doesn't have so much power that the chassis would twist around..

And dont put a recaro seat!! They're ugly as hell! Stick to 16V original seats, they're much more comfortable, and look a lot better!

Thumbs up for new IC =D>
