Does it have an F54 block and P90 cylinder head? Should find it on the side of the spark plugs on the engine.

P90 head was a turbo head, but was also popular for N/A applications because it's meant to flow better than the earlier ones. It's also got a better combustion chamber that's more resistant to knocking.

I only had if very briefly then moved it on. I do know the wiring was quite hacked up so you might want to look into that.

Gav, is there any way to find out what the original colour of the car is?

Get a hat like this:

a paint scraper like this:

and a heat gun like this:
8ace2ec5-4719-45f5-b553-85ec01d49441.JPG

and become an automotive archaeologist ;).

Best place to look for original paint colour is inside the car, floors, rear boot area, firewall as those are unlikely to have been repainted..

Cuong might also know. I recall he said it wasn't originally 907 Green at 1 point but I could be wrong.

Well after a hectic few weeks of life messing up with my plans the build is moving along again. Engine bay is gonna get emptied out in the next 2 weeks and then it's off to the body shop.

There was a bit of a delay but she's getting paint stripped and blasted within a fortnight.

Now I'm looking at getting flares, front spoiler and rear spoiler so that the body shop can fit them up while the cars I the shop. For a local dealer I can only find stuff from Otomoto, does anyone know of other suppliers?
