Not mine, Jeez I wish it was, but this is Craig from Dyno Torque's twin turbo build (based in Birmingham, England). Thought you guys might like to see it? Recently made 1016bhp at ~8psi Not bad for a car he still uses to drop the kids off at school in

I can't give you too many details, not cos I'm being an **** but because I just don't know them, lol. Like I said, it's not mine. Craig who built it runs Dyno Torque, started out on bikes but got into making bespoke V8-conversions for FDs here in the UK. He's done loads from "mild" to wild but that one's his own personal beast. He's the sort of dude who doesn't really shout about what he does, lets the work talk for him... and I think you'll agree the work talks pretty loud, lol. Ican steal some pics off his build thread on FDUK if that's any use to you?

And a wee video of it making just over the grand on the dyno;




Everything made in-house, awesome fabrication that takes welding to an artform. Easily one of my favourite FDs

Manual brakes...The pedal box is under the dash. Master cylinders face towards the driver and lines run through the firewall, out of sight.

I just found a dyno video that my shop took. It's a completely stock baseline dyno, I should have a heads/cam video later this week.
