My Turbo project is finaly done and my Baby on the road.

My Baby is finally done and i canít describe how Iím feeling right now its everything i have expected and so much more. Iím only allowed to rev the engine to 4500rpm for now but its still so much faster than the stock Exige and it sounds AMAZING ( its a bit loud but ok ) I need to brake in the car for about 4000km before i hit the rolling road but estimated HP is around 450whp.

That looks great im sure it feels amazing! I especially love the mods you did to the body, I really love the added air intakes right underneath the rear wing.

Very creative and interesting IC placement. Is there any flow to the IC besides from the 2 new NACA ducts in the rear clam below the wing? That's very impressive HP as well. Would love to read more of the details.

Looks like a water-to-air intercooler, also known as a chargecooler.

Yeap thats the heat exchanger for the chargecooler...it gets fresh air from the naca ducts and 2 flexi tubes from the site vents. I will post videos as soon as possible.

4000km break-in I would never be able to wait that long.

450whp??? What transmission do you have? What upgrade have you done to the engine?

Very nice.

The engine is slived and everything forged and ceramic coated, a lot of custom work and parts and using a Garrett GT3076R turbo. The transmission is the Toyota E153. I know 4000km is A LOT, im now at 2000 and its killing me.
