Horsham, Victoria. Andrew Smith
81 gh 2.0Lcarby turbo build #243 silver/black. genuine 2.0L block in a box in the shed. 2.6L rebuilt with carby turbo set up ready to put back in once repairs and respray are done, nearly there got the roof front quarters and engine bay to go, more pics on the way.. keeping stock
81 gh 2.6L injected turbo built # 69 red/black, interior retrimmed in red leather with custom guage cluster. engine currently being pieced back together at present with stainless sleeved block, balance shaft removed, crank balanced, forged pistons, new head, camshaft, valves, double valve springs. stock turbo and manifold with tp magna intake manifold. will surely be asking a few questions when i run into any problems with the injection conversion, would appreciate any advice...
quick question, is the 81 gh turbo (500 made) what is referred to as the peter wherret special or is the pws different? cheers boys

so were agreed there arent many sigma turbos left.. but what if we started accounting for the 500 turbo manifolds.. i dont have an original sigma turbo but ive got a manifold, which means thats one less complete car out there?

how many people out there have an original turbo manifold? (that isnt on an orignal sigma turbo)

Any chance of condensing that down a little? Have a look at the members added to the list above. If possible could you keep to that format? Once I get a condensed description I (or someone else on the mod team) will delete the unnecessary posts.

Hi Guys... Finally got a 1981 GH Factory Sigma Turbo! I purchased it just near Adelaide the other day and then drove it home to Sydney. Even though it hadn't been registered or driven for over a decade it didn't miss a beat and sat on 120 for 1500k's. Awesome!

- Site name: Tim
- Location: NSW Central Coast
- Car details: December 1981 Blue/Black GH Sigma Factory Turbo #292 out of 500. It's a very tidy 2 owner car with 194,000 km on the clock. The car is totally original, right down to the Philips AM/FM Stereo Cassette Player and Speakers! I'm planning on restoring it to original condition, with a few small improvements. The plan is to have it looking basically stock with the original rims, interior and exterior.

I've got a gallery on Facebook with photos that will be updated as the work progresses... http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150572015067627.482020.796487626&type=3

Here is a link to a quick video that I put together... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaescLxMfiw&list=UU3rz9VHNtih-3h7dG_WDt4Q&feature=plcp
