First of all i must say Hi to every body on this site . I know im a bit late on this but i only found out about this site a week ago when a friend came to me seeing what cars i had for the 13 for $1300 project he wants to do .
The car i will use is a VC Commodore that i bought for $150 and a 308 for $200 auto $100.Im going to pick up a turbo on wednesday night that i hope will do the job. Be easy on me as ive never built a turbo car before so this should be fun. When i figure out how to post photos i will post some up with cost off all the parts i will use.
thanks Mark

Sounds cool, You'll have to get cracking because you don't have much time. It'll be good to see a V8 in the mix though.

Hi when i figure out how to upload picks form photo bucket i will post something ,so if any body wants to Pm me on the run down of how to do it i will put some up.
No the motor is not in the car as it still has a 6 in it but the motor will be on the stand this week to get it back togeather. Im not worried about the dead line date as i only found about this site a week ago and i also have a buisness to run.
This is going to be fun for me as i have been out of cars for about 7 years.

Photobucket has link URLs under each pic. Copy the link that has the < sign at the start and just paste the whole link here.

Sorry dont have kinswood parts for sale. Yes im glad im changing to the V8 ,This week has been a bad 1 for me as my VX alloytech shit it self + the tyre machine at work decided to go out aswell. So i spent yesterday fixing the commo up and got it registered today Thank god for club rego, But on the way home from picking up the turbo the six decided it had enough and let go aswell so now im down 2 motors but thats what i needed to get the 308 in .So thats 3 things in 1 week so it can only be up hill from here.

After i have run the motor asspirated to get the most out of it i will put the turbo on it to see if it will go any faster which i hope it will. I dont know if this is in the rules but i will subtract the cost of the parts that i used to run asspirated then add in the parts of the turbo set to see if i can run the times for the $1300.

So hopefully I will get time in the next couple of weeks to get the motor back together and going. As much as I would like to be on this flat out I have to worry about work first, which doesn't leave me much time. But it will get finished.

There. Better. :)
