Thread: You probably already hate me

  1. #1

    Default You probably already hate me

    The title does probably hold true in a forum like this, long time lurker, first time poster. The reason you guys will hate me is because I'm one of the many boost-happy P Platers who is buying a MPS 6 due to the changes in the turbo bans and lowering the street value of your beloved cars. Now, I've got a car that I have looked up and am keen on buying, and was wondering what are some major things to check in a MPS 6 before buying. Any help is greatly appreciated

    During you're lurking what issues have you yourself been finding unless all you do is check out the girlfriends/wives thread.

    Mainly blown turbos (distinct smoke coming out of the exhaust)

    mostly have been reading up on build threads though.

    Timing chain noise and leaks from gearbox and transfer case. Service history including all oil changes and condition and amount of oil in sump.

    Only 2 bits of advice....... be careful who you take your car too, read and do as much as you can yourself

    Fortunately for myself I'm good friends with Rayd's brother, that's who I'll be taking mine to, from what I can see he's good at what he does.

    @ jayfkN, At least you are driving a manual

    More then could be said for most other P Platers.

    UPDATE: Just bought a car, so I can safely say I'm that guy you're going to be angry with at the lights for putting his P-Plates on your beloved MPS's

    15K for an MPS 6, great condition on the paint, bought from a guy who washed it every week, both the showing parts as well as the bottom, and drove it like a grandma :P

    Don't forget, even though you can now drive some turbo cars, the rule remains you can't drive modified cars.
    So keep any mods subtle and descreet

    Yeah it is Benny's car. The look of sadness in his eyes was indescribable when I came to have a look at it. He's been really helpful and throwing in the AP (2) for no added cost.

    Yeah I'm aware no mods can be done to it, and those are the photos Benny provided me when I first inquired, great shots.

    Already some bonnet stripes (such mods, wow) and looking into getting the rims sprayed black.
    Not sure what the rules are on any exhaust work, anyone know if that's legal or not?

    Don't that the cars have to be stock?
    So, i'd say yeah, it would count...

    If you're looking for a bit extra power that not noticeable on visual inspection, i'd suggest a hpfp + e85 tune

    For an easily reversible exhaust mod, look into a test/race pipe... I believe corksport make them...

    Apparently cops have the power to put your car on a dyno and check it out.
