    Default nova Z20 !

    After selling my nova c20let <clicky> i played with a couple of newer cars including an astra coupe turbo <clicky> which i liked but didnt really see the point in spending money on making such a heavy car faster so i decided to start a new nova project, but this time using the newer Z20lex engine<clicky>.

    As i now work away from home i knew i didnt have time to start from a completely standard nova and doing all the stitch welding/strengthening etc... so i got a head start with a previously well known car which i bought as a bare shell but was all ready for a big block & f28.

    ok so it really doesnt look like this now but its almost looking like a car again already
    once built by rick draper as a c20let it was broken for parts and the shell sold to a friend of mine, he had it garaged for a few year and it inherited the name 'the neva'.

    So now the fun begins, ive already sourced the majority of the parts i need.
    Ive got a low mileage z20 engine which is away having work done to it, ive got low comp pistons, steel rods, all ARP bolts, balancer shafts deleted, vxr crank, under piston squirters, a garret T60-1,875cc injectors, f28 with gripper diff, lightweight flywheel etc...

    trial fit the intercooler, ideally id like it to fill the gaps in the bumper so i might either get a custom intercooler made or make the bumper fit tighter to the intercooler
