Bought this dead Scania branded Holset.
Yep, it’s dead.
Stripped, let the build begin.
When companies are flogging their cheap wares using photos they stole off the internet.
Considering the sad state of affairs when you image search “libero gt” into google, you can’t blame them.
It does make me thankful I was the recipient of a car built by someone with good overall taste, an understanding of period correct and with the foresight not ruin it with then current fads or trends that would date quickly. When you’ve changed almost nothing aesthetically in the last 7 years you’re doing it right!
Building the best CD5W in the country is almost as easy as building the best N13.
And I haven’t seen one good N13 in NZ.
Bought front seat rails from Yahoo JP in Nov 2013.
Got lost in Osaka Port for 2 months.
Arrived in NZ Feb 2014.
Something must of got lost in translation Bill Murray style though, as
“Recaro Super Low Side Mount N13”
“Generic Cheap Standard Height Bottom Mount N13”
So had custom ones fabricated instead.
Rear seats retrimmed.
Onto the period correct control units.
You know you have a problem with collecting control units when you start losing them.
“Misplaced” my HKS Turbo Timer III.
Luckily my problem is so bad that I have multiples of different generations of the same unit .
Thus replaced with a IV instead.
HKS EVC, SBC, VPC, IPM (Gen 1).
APEXi ‘single pot’ AFC & BFC.
Still more to come.
GTI-R brake upgrade.
Oil filter relocation.
Wired up the reverse lights.
Wired up the oil pressure idiot light.
