    It's gotta be a mk1 fezza for me ant, was my first road legal car back in the day got plenty of time, although I remember thinking that last time round!!

    I remember the gti dave, was going well mate, tried really hard to stay with you when you passed me! how do I tell if the 3i is the 130 version? That golf of your bro's went like stink, the dark blue one? think it was a T plate.

    It did me proud i wasnt too sure how well it was gonna do but i was well impressed with it, 130 cams and t/b, cheap lowering kit and shocks and cossie front brakes, yoko pradas and thats it! You need to look on the airbox it will have a 115 or 130ps sticker on it to tell you which one it is. If thats not there then measure the t/b should be 55 or 65mm from memory, its about the same diameter all the way down rather than tapering in to the butterfly like the 115 one does

    Thats the one mate, was only a touch quicker than me down the straights he did struggle to pull past, and a bit quicker in the bends, that could down to him driving it like he stole it as i dont think i was pushing as hard as he was! Thats on coilovers, eibach arb's, polybushed rear beam and yoko pradas. Hes going for a 230bhp remap next week so i best find some more power pronto

    Get the xr and see what you think mate then if you wanna rip the engine out you can, but i think that gutted with uprated suspension and good tyres will do well

    Standard with a 1.9 shoehorned in Oh and the cold air fed airfilter mod

    The only downside to the 205 is they like to do a nice donut when you least expect it and they think they are a combine harvester at times too

    I do like a 205gti, had one for a little while years ago. I want a ford though, dave is probably right and I should just build the 3i but I've got itchy fingers and fancy a little project, should probably get on with the mk1 escort instead, but pretty sure I'll be driving a fezzer!!

    I heard that! Big end was it? Certainly sounded like it. Was going very well beforehand.
