Hi all,

I finally managed to get some decent shots of my car so I thought I'd put them up.

The engines pulling 128.9kw on the dyno at the moment. More to come.

Nah, it's bored to about 2.2 litre (going by what I was told when it was rebuilt), fuel pressure regulator, bigger cam, BOV, 3" exhaust from the dump pipe (flex joint also fitted coz I was blowing manifold gaskets all over the place) and all the other bits n' pieces like monster tacho, boost gauge, turbo timer, 17" BSA mags (which I must say are shit and will be replaced soon), lowered suspension, Isotta fittings with a Katiena wheel to come shortly and complete interior refit. btw; Bob I might take you up on that offer of the front seat swap when that time comes.

Looking good.

Good to see a battery bracket there. Although missing the turbo heat shield!
Rims look like they're the wrong offset they rub the shocks when the cars jacked up?

That car would look sweet with the sports isuzu front bar...

some dude was selling one (white - not the black one on the recent thread) bout 4 months ago...
If Gemini's were ever meant to go fast, they would have come out of the factory with 4zc1t engines!!

Nah lucky the Piazza was designed for wider wheels to begin with so you can fit RWD offset 7 inch wide wheels without rubbing or needing engineering..

I should have had a LOL in there ^^^^^^

Ive got 15x7" rims on my Piazza, needed 195 wide tyres on the fronts to have clearance to the shocker at full lift. They are 24 offset and came off a RWD BMW. I hardly think these FWD rims people keep crapping about will fit legally, be it Gemini or Piazza.

Yeah saw that thread on ozgemini i've given up replying to those threads really, noone will listen to me. Ofcourse the FWD rims do not fit legally because they hit the shock.

They'd have to rub on the shocks when you jack the front up then?

I had 16x7's +42 with 8mm spacer effectively 34mm offset and they rubbed hard with the front end jacked up.

No they don't actually... Strange, I wonder what else has been done to avoid that?
