    Itll be quite different im trying to build something just a bit away from the normal slammed stockish statesman thing but i think alot of people dont play with them as there so highly optioned theres easier models to start with i guess lol but anything thats not that grey will be high gloss black no chrome etc

    But that’s whats great about builds, everyone has a different idea, or at least a twist on one that makes it interesting.

    Yeah thats it :) got some more done on the bay tonight this is actually my favorite part of the bay lol welding in hard tube to the car through the body for the cooler pipe keeps it strucurally sound and also cleans the look right up :)

    Yeah definately looking at it.

    Ive decided to drill 3.25 inch holes either side of the bay and weld in some v band flanges you normally use to clamp IC pipes together, to finish it off.

    Im only running 2.5 inch IC pipe so should have plenty of clearance.

    Sounds like a great idea just remeber motor moves a little so need to allow for the movement othwr than that cooler to body can be hard clamped for sure im a big fan of v bands my manifolds and whole exhaust system will run them its so quick and easy to do up and undo i love them :)

    All honesty rat 450hp to start with its been a long time now since ive been behind a powerfull car and power is easy to become used to and always want more. so im wanting to run it as low as i can get this thing to go and then as i get used to it start winding it up as i go but ive been told realisticly with the combo the boost and what wayno made im gonna struggle keeping it under 550hp but hey its one o those things i dont like to make claims untill that display comes up on the dyno it could do just about anything :)

    Sounds like a plan mate.

    Horsepower is great but the torque will be crazy fun with the turbo boosting the 355 in the mid range on the street.Can’t wait to see it on the road.
