Had never seen a facelift SRI with a v6 conversion so done it myself (thats not to say there's none out there).

With the amoount of mods there are these days its hard to be originaland there's always someone who's done it before you,ive kept my car reasonably straight and not chavish but some would obviously dissagree.

Beleive it or not, the car I now own pretty much motivated me to get a Turbo when I first joined the site!
I knew about them, but had only ever seen ONE on the road which a local lad owned.
I remember reading the site Richie had about how he fitted the FMIC, and by complete strange co-incidence afew years later the Turbo I get offered as a part ex is that exact same one! :eh

I dont do what other people do...i love Calibra's for many reasons, but one of them is that you dont see that many of them...and any mods ive done is for what i like, not to please or copy anyone else.

i think a few people copied some of my ideas...not many people would put different motors in different cars...like a 2.0 ford pinto in a manta...then banging a turbo on it...or a supra motor in a carlton...

I went out in Jon Taylor's LET'd MK2 (the white one in TV a couple of months ago) and just couldn't get it out of my head.

I shoehorned a 24v Senator engine into a Triumph GT6 once, many moons ago! It handled like a sack of shite!! (Before and after)

There's an old pic of my boy with Mike's cav .



While at the time mine looked like this :
