    Default Green Nova GTE Turbo - G984 XRG

    So some of you might know this car from back in the day, it used to belong to David dixon of Griffin Autosport who originally built it in the late 90s, it was a C20XE on weber carbs, then later a modified C20LET 6 speed.

    The car was stripped over 10 years ago and has just sat there ever since, so my plan is to restore it to its former glory.

    Top project there, be great to see it back to its best and should be fun finding the parts to make it exactly like it used to be.

    How's the purple nova doing by the way?

    Yeah, well i done a deal on it for another nova running a modified C20LET, the engine and running gear are to be used in the green GTE.

    Bilstein big piston front suspension to go on with custom 400lbs springs to cope with the weight of the C20LET
