Good afternoon people!
Long over due post. Put this thread on FDUK but to share with those on here.
It\'s well beyond the time of year where we all bring our fd’s out of hibernation. For me, I’m intending on spending at least some part of this summer in the Border Racing twin single turbo’ed FD whilst still trying to decide whether or not actually sell the beast after over five years of ownership.
Car was MOT’d recently through the courtesy of Thames Valley MOT and looking back at past MOT’s. I’ve driven the car a mere 2600 kms over the past five years!
Engine was recently built and ported some seven months ago by Oldone Racing and nicely put together and painted by Super 7 auto\'s! Last dyno session in 2007 the car made circa 505 BHP flywheel. With the engine ported for further flow, here’s hoping once I eventually run in the car - Era can meet me at Reworx to see just what exactly Max or Geoff can churn out of the latest set up.
Below is a brief spec, along with some pictures I took – albeit the car had not been washed for two weeks as seen by the muck on the wheels and windows! All comments are welcome. A brief history of the car, it was owned and built previously by a Border Racing Japan engine tuner. The turbo kit was specially commissioned to Apexera by Border Racing and I believe a total of twenty units were only ever manufactured solely for Border Racing so the set up is utmost unique to say the least. Exterior has been purposefully left modest with the Border vented bonnet and Regamaster’s giving a little hint of this sleeper’s nature with most emphasis on driveability, handling and power.
Having driven highly modified FD’s, the set up below really does place the car’s responsiveness in the realms of that of stock twin turbo cars, minimal lag but(!) the power just keeps coming and coming.
Thanks for reading and look forward to any comments, criticisms.
