What motors have you had?

Post  BGB on Wed Oct 28, 2009 10:32 pm

Thought I'd start a thread with peoples old cars to see what different types people have had. I'll start off:

Vauxhall Nova 1.2





Honda Civic 1.8 VTi (MB6)





Nissan 200SX S14a













Current: Honda Civic 1.6 VTi (EK4)

Christ dan, i think you might have actually had more cars than i have lmao..

I honestly think with hindsight you should have kept the GSR, i liked that motor alot because it was different but still done the business. Couldnt you get another one?

haha im not proud of it, i have some kinda illness, i just get bored with cars wayy to soon.

Yeah the only reason I actually sold the GSR was fuel, it was running so so rich and costing a shitload in fuel. So decided to sell when we knew lou was up the duff as i thought i wouldnt be able to run it, now tho looking back i probably could of afforded to keep it and run it, should of just gave it to nick @ tuning developments for an emanage and a map and would of sorted it out.

Funny you should say about getting another, ive actually been offered one buy a guy I konw, not quite the GSR is a Mitsi Libero, basically the GSR but in estate version with a few tasty mods. evo td05 16g, upgraded mani with ext wastegate, evo 550 injectors, some piggy back ecu and a few other bits, running about 280bhp. Thing that worreys me is parts, enigine wise isnt so bad as its the same engine thats in the proton gti's ect, just the other bits. Something to consider anyways.

I would consider one myself i do like the GSR, the mrs however hates them and would love me to get anything from an EVO4 onwards. Personally i love the EVO 3 they are the dogs but just way to expensive on insurance.. like most evo's. I dont use my car as a daily drive so fuel isnt a problem for me but paying over the odds insurance to just use the car on the weekend seems a bit of a waste of money etc. If i could find the right GSR nice and clean and well kept i would deffo consider it though because they are obviously cheaper insurance wise etc.

Im happy with the S2 now though, its a cracking project.. parts all over the place on passionford etc and theres just a great community behind the whole ford scene. Im hoping to keep hold of it for a while really because it is a clean Mk4 and im just about to have a new engine fitted so i cant see me parting with it anytime soon unless i get a really good offer on it which corresponds with me fitting the new engine. But im definately not looking to sell it and just make the most of it and take it a bit further throughout the winter.
