...I want FD so badly... :(

Can you import them? I know there’s a few countries where too import them from japan you have to get it TÜV approved and it’s very expensive but if you get a uk spec sold car then you don’t have to get it TÜV?

Prices have gone mad the last 1-2 years. Time to jump on now!
Yep they have. I’d dread too think how much my FD is worth now. It was an original sold uk spec car. 1 of 125 sold in the uk.

I couldn’t pay 18k for one no matter how  much I’d want one because I’d look at what cars that are modern for the same price.

For another 6k you can get a new mustang ecoboost so second hand a fair bit less. Same with 370Zs

This was always about owning my childhood dream car back from the 90's/00's, didnt want a nail so had to pay the money. I have a 66' reg 335d X drive so have a sub 5s family car but it's boring. Not much can beat a classic in terms of driving satisfaction.
Totally understand, I kept every copy of max power for years that featured an FD. Then I got mine and didn’t need them any more. I’d be terrified of bump it on track at such a high cost
Main reason I’m getting an mx5 and throwing a single turbo rotary in it. Cheap and don’t care if it gets damaged. Plenty about and cheap as chips

True, James FD was some serious beast! I think it had 770whp @ 1,8bar. 10k for that car was a robbery, afterall it was fastest rotary in europe...

Lähetetty minun E2303 laitteesta Tapatalkilla
Still the fastest street rotary in Europe, I think his car was the right price and is about the price they should still be imo. If he had the HKS box with the car then it would have been worth a fair few grand more for sure but he sold that as I think he had broken it...... again

Hi, i've just made an account as i've read the whole thread from start to finish and it was a great read. Top work!

Also Craig at TGS's RX7 has sold now... Because I have bought it  :love4:
How much did you pay for it?

2-3 year ago you would have got that car for about £10,000.

I think James Willday sold his drag car, well sorted car BTW for about 10,000. On full power it was an second beast. He sold it with a rebuilt engine and on low boost about 500-550hp

Oh my god...thats horrific...hoping he has some sort of guarantee!!!

Heard from him today that it’s all his own fault, too harsh on the down shifts so I reckon he has down shifted waaaay too early and pinged the rpm of the engine over the Rev limit, spun a bearing and carried in driving until it melted

Nope. Standard engine and his friend built the car with him who owns a garage, did the cage etc.

He’s going for forged internals over sized pistons, proper gated sump etc. So he’s blowing another load of money on it.

He’s a bit stuck with what to do because his rules restrict him. If he goes for a bigger motor, 2.4 litre he gets put into a class which is full of turbo Imprezas so to be competitive he will have to spend a huge chunk of  money to just keep up with them seeing as they are 4wd etc. And he’s only fwd and no turbos

I think he’s over revved it, and it has had oil starvation. I’d like to see what his crank looks like

My work mate has just finished building his Honda Civic race car, he’s doing tarmac rallies with it, literally just got the engine fired up and mapped etc. Went out racing last weekend to break it in......

He now has a window in the side of his block
