    1998 Holden Barina 2.0 16v - home made engine mount fits. ZOMG!!!

    collected it today. man its slow...

    1.4 8v mpi, same as an sri. 360,000kms, slightly fubar clutch, oil leaks.

    body: post facelift, with a/c pas cd player and tinted windows. 2 airbags, and half a farmyard of mud. ****ed seats, no horn buttons and shagged gaiters. no rust....

    perfect for what im planning.









    i also bought a calibra, but cant collect it till feb 21st.

    You think that's slow? My 1.4 8v is spi lol.

    Still astounded that after that many miles it still has no rust. Lower humidity levels I suppose?

    Should polish up nicely. Keeping it looking standard for sleeper lolz?

    When you do the conversion will you be able to keep the air conditioning?

    Yesss! This is going to be a beast! I cant wait man! Calibra a 2.0 and then a ebay turbo or are you getting LET stuff to put on it?

    Whats your bhp goal? Are you going to strip this from inside?

    Keep it a sleeper rob, best feeling ever when you overtake a porsche!

    What are the regulations like in Australia with engine conversions? Same as here, declare engine to insurance and change it on the logbook etc?

    Aren't they stricter on modifying cars?
