Hey guys!

This is my TX Coupe I have been slaving over for the past couple of years. I got her back in 2006 dead stock. A bit rusty but in all it was relatively tidy. In 2007 I put a G200 in her with a 34 ADM Weber, Extractors, High Comp Head, and a Mild Crow Cam. Eventually I did in the rings and she was off the road for 12 months while I the engine bay got an overhaul. I traded the motor in for a G161 with some fresh rings courtesy of Eli. Now she is back on the road in better form than ever!

Current specs:
  • G161
  • High Comp. Head
  • Mild Port
  • Match Ported Intake
  • Mild Crow Cam
  • 32/36 DGAV Weber
  • Lightened Flywheel
  • Exedy Heavy Duty Clutch
  • Extractors
  • 2 1/4" Exhaust
  • 5 Speed Box

  • Full Rewire
  • Engine Bay Wiring Hidden
  • CD Player
  • Central Locking
  • Alarm

  • Super Low King Springs
  • New Ball Joints
  • Nolathane Bushes
  • Fresh Shocks
  • TE Sway Bar

Brake upgrade on its way! 29.11.09

I was going to weld them up and paint it to match. Im not really a fan of the TX rear ends.

It would look something like this:

Hey Guys,

Just a bit of an update. Got my King Springs, Ball Joints and Nolathane Bushes in the mail on Monday. Started to pull apart the front end today and the old ball joints are proving to be a problem as per usual! Can't wait to have it all back together. I'll post up some pictures when its all done.
