1.2 turbo engine complete, now the bodywork!!!

i have been rebuilding my cinq over the past year and doing alot of work to the engine! it's now a 1242 with the turbo off of the 1108 conversion we done as a test a blew up!! the 1242 has been completely stripped and rebuilt, low comp pistons running 8:1, polish and ported head,lightened valve train, flowed inlet manifold, fast road cam, lightened and balanced flywheel, balanced crank, and hopefully running a bar of boost when it's run in!!! he he! i was also going to put 13x10 ml's on but i couldn't find arches anywhere!!! but last week i found a mint 96 N black sporting with 60,000 miles tax and mot till march 2005 and paid 750 for it so i'm gonna switch the engines from the red one to this, and i don't have to worry about getting it through a mot for a year!!! he he. I have put a few pics togethe of the rebuild for u guys to see, hope u enjoy them? now starting to swap the engine over from the red one to the black one today and hopefully going in the bodyshop in the next month!!! i also put some pics on the cinq wiv the 13x10's on it, should give u guys a laugh!!!! but i didn't relise how wide they where!! they r for sale at the mo on ebay, but if anyone now anyone who want's them wen the auction has finished then contact me!!! have a look!!

Thats going to be a great Cinq mate, well done :D

Pity your selling the wheels tho, would make it look proper one-off, very 'euro' look maybe...



Get this bodykit?

hi ya!! yeah that is my boost gauge!!, got rid of the centre blowers didn't really need them just blocked them off, more than enough heat comes out from the windscreen blowers and the side blowers!!!

lol! those wheels are mad! looking nice though! you shouldnt sell them and should keep them for the black cinq! can you actually turn with those wheels? lol

why not get a bodyshop to do some custom wider arches.. or get a wide arch kit for another car and make it fit heh
