    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    I saw that add.

    And thought that it was a mistake, or he either put turbo in his add to make it sell quicker ? not sure.

    Might just give him a buz and find out some stuff about it.

    I hope it's a dud, I really don't want to have to come up and drive another one home.

    Justin at Alpine Motors in Canberra is trying to sell his Virage sedan with 17 Turbo engine and programmable EFI. Has SAAB 9000 Turbo on it running low boost.
    I was interested but turned and bought a 93 205GTI, their phone number is 02 6282 2350.

    Sounds like a pretty good conversion.

    Call him and have a chat, he's very approachable, and it would beunfair to name a price without speccing the cars bits first.

    Hi Jelly, yeah go and check it out, I am curious, that one in Canberra sounds good too, but I'm sure I don't need another car right now, I have a friend who is an R12 aholic so I'm pass them on to him.
    I'm glad the tranny got there ok, I was wondering how you got on.
    Seeya,
    David.

    Just gave the guy with the turbo R12 a buz, and it requires a bit of work.
    No turbo comes with the car. Engine is dissembled (1289cc). Has a nitride crank, lumpy cam, and a 40mm carb.
    The guy reckons it did a 14 sec quarter.
    0-100 in 7 sec.
    He did the turbo conversion him self.
    Wants $900 for it all up.

    The motor would have been awesome to sick in the back of a R8 / R10.

    Anyway catch you all later
