I shipped my car over from Dubai in Jan 2017 and it had been sitting at a friends garage turning into a plant pot... I've finally had the time to get some bits sorted on it.

I had all the paintwork sorted, GT2RS intakes (Fabricated), GT2 Skirts, installed an RSS roll cage courtesy of FRP and some bucket seats with BBI sliders. Im just waiting on replacement carbon for all the broken bits inside and some Schroth Harnesses (never realised how expensive these are Surprised

I hope to have it registered this month for the UK roads.

She's currently putting down over 800 to the wheels but I plan to rebuild it in a month or two and go 3.8ltr.

Here are some pictures of how it came out Very Happy Very Happy

Wheel HP Mr. Green

And no, transmission is now toast and slips like crazy.

Squelch, seen your mail, will respond today Thumb

FRP, Yep, probably looks like a different car from when you saw it? Had to paint the roll bar twice to get a good colour match but it looks great now! Thanks again for the great deal!


Thanks guys! Look forward to registering it and getting down to a few meets.

Please can I ask if you have changed the headlights to UK spec?

Cheers, Keith.

No, they are the same headlights, just with the internal switches flipped so it flattens the beam.

The switches are made so the car can be driven on the opposite side when touring.

I'm gonna go with the 9FF/ES transmission. My friend has it running 1200whp and it's held up really well and shifts great.

I think they add 3 extra clutches, make them double sided and change the valve body along with some other stuff plus a tcu tune.

Ok, please note that VOSA have confirmed the 'T' setting should not last more than 12 months, the first MOT tester can issue the pass but the next tester should fail the car. The RHD headlights have a LHS tick. Your insurer may also have a view on vehicle compliance.

This information is given for your own best benefit.

Cheers, Keith.

I think his is a manual. It still drives fine, just slips at any big load.

To much late night racing and drag strip action killed it lol
