Build a race car for 999.00 challenge

Post  haylingmini on 14/12/10, 09:20 am

Thought I should put a post up about this, we are entering the PPC build a race car for 999.00 challenge next year, our car will be a Justy naturally Very Happy

Team Hayling
Me, Garndi, MattG & Jimbo.

The car bought for 150.00 with a knackered engine


The engine we will use, its G13B with high mileage, we will give this a good going over


Started to make a manifold


Plan to use a TD04 Turbo, Garndi Turbo chip & NOS, the car must cost less than 999.00 to build so this will really be done on a tight budget.

when you change to a justy box do you have to change the flywheel and clutch to justy aswell?

Yes, Justy flywheel, clutch & I would think steering rack, which would involve moving the mounting points & you would need to blank off the rear output. Not a 10 minute job Sad

Thanks Steve, I stand corrected, I thought the Justy rack was mounted higher on the bulkhead than the Swift. Seem to remember Garndi moving the rack mounting points up when he did his white one in Oz.

you need the justy rack if your running 4wd, but if your running the justy box on a fwd gti and you remove the rear drive section of the gbox then you can keep the stock rack

For stock Steve, its for Jap market only, your local dealer can get you one but they will need to do some digging, its copper with 3 layers. The part number is not recognised in Europe, we got ours trade, 80.00 delivered & it took 2 weeks.
