I appear to have lost one of the red nuts, anyone who has seen my garage will understand how! I'm gonna have a clean up this weekend so I'll have a look for it. I'll get in touch.

Got a bit more work done on the car, rear brakes are all sorted with new discs, Yellowstuff pads and Goodridge hoses. The calipers had seized so I've sorted them out as well. Whiteline rear ARB will be fitted on Saturday worshippy.gif

255lph fuel pump should be sorted and fitted soon as well, 300bhp here we come coolio.gif

Still no sign of the bloody missing red nut.

Uprated fuel pump is fitted as are all the fiat fuel lines. Rear antiroll bar fitted as well which was much easier than expected.

Next stage is engine in but it's getting a few tweaks before it goes in ready for 300bhp.

Pics to follow.

Getting there, engine will be in soon so should be up and running in the not too distant future. Problem is I can only buy a few parts per month so I can afford it all!

Recently acquired and fitted a T3 Super 60 turbo, Spesso 1.9mm gasket and uprated head bolts plus a new cambelt kit.

Bigger injectors and FMIC still to be bought. FC remap should see me at 300bhp once it's done.


Much delayed pics soon!!

Quick update with some pics!!

Whiteline rear ARB vs original one


Engine is now in




Front mount intercooler


You can hardly tell it's there with the bumper on coolio.gif


Pipework will be sorted once I've been paid!

Had to trim a bit of the bumper to get it on, also took my foglights out. Oil cooler will be behind one and CDA the other.


Venair coolant hose kit, most are hidden behind the engine. Got the trubo kit as well, went for black to keep it all subtle. (I know there is no hose clip on this one!)


Done the whole rear brake lines in Goodridge flexi as I had a spare kit floating about!




Temporary front brakes, deciding if I should put 166 Brembos on. I really want to keep my 16" wheels. You can see my lovely clean gearbox blush.gif


Wiring and intercooler piping are up next. Also got my short shift kit fitted, feels so much better than standard. Got to sort something to mount my 52mm gauges, really want something like the one in Jason's 20v.

I shall try and take some more pics, I forget when I'm working on the car!!!

The shell on the blue one was no good so it went to the scrapyard in the sky.

Header (manifold??) is the same one as the group buy from the integrale forum, got mine on ebay. Turbo is standard one but with Super 60 trim compressor. ECU is the Fiat magnetti mareli unit but i've changed the chip for a non-immobilizer one. It will be remapped by FCS in Bristol when it's done.

Should probably get some more done today but it seems to be raining and I'll be watching the GP!

300bhp with something similar in terms of torque. I've fitted a spesso head gasket and uprated bolts, new belts and tensioners but other than that left the engine alone.

Also fitted a 6paddle clutch but didn't take any pics!
