    Talking been a busy guy and love the results :D:D

    well at the start of september i blew the turbo on my signum and it emptied the sump in2 the exhaust so took my car back and had a new centre section made as the back was straight through to the tail pieces( middle had a silencer) and upgraded to the mitsubishi turbo with the guidance of caveman_nige. fitted my turbo and the required pipes and managed to source a set of injectors but the car felt sluggish so as a quick test covered one of the rear exits and it made a dramatic difference. when i was raking about my garage i found my old stasinless rear boxes and stainless pipe so went to my m8's and hade a date with the welder and im in love with what ive created not only does the car sound and look far better it boosts at 25psi and pulls like a train. although i alweays thought turbo cars didnt need backpressure? anyway enough speel and heres a pic of what ive made



    involved a good bit choppin and weldin but well worth the effort, then i tried my hand at carbon wrapping _




    and b4 anyone tells me i know the ashtray is wrapped back to front

    with the td04 and a good map you should look for about 240bhp

    well done on the upgrade, did you do it yourself?
