TUFSIG, GK Sigma GSR 2.6 EFI Turbo

Postby TUFSIG » Tue Nov 17, 2009 10:13 pm

Well After My Recent Deletion i figured i should redo my build thread on my pride and joy TUFSIG
Ive had this car for about 4 years now and its come a fair way from its stocka 2.6 carby manual days
here is a collection and recollection of how far its come over the years as a recap

The Start
Day of purchase

Image
Image

A bit ruff around the edges and in need of some TLC
This was the week later once it was all cleaned up and lowered on pedders springs

Image

After about 3 months of repairs i got her on the road this was my first night i took her out with rego

Image
Image

I pretty much left it as is for about a year and on my 21st i got my plates that gave the car its name

Image
Image

a month or two later i decided to get my pepperpots pollished up and they really made the car

Image
Image

as far as interior had gone i decided to steam clean it and give it a good clean up
i also did custom installs of my speakers in the doors and made custom parcel shelf

Image
Image
Image

after that i decided to have my first play on the engine side of things with these

Image
Image

and then after that as what happens to most i caught the turbo bug
i got an original sigma turbo motor and rebuilt everything off it to put in

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

That took about 9 months to complete that conversion with my old man
however when i had to many probs with blow buy i decided that i needed to take that extra step
at this present time i am now converting TUFSIG to EFI turbo using the motor out of my scorpion hence i can not get it engineered

Image

so let the games begin
here is tufsig as she is today

Such a shame this happened. I was using some pics for ideas, and some valuable technical info. Glad you had all your pics saved.

GT35 hmmm sounds like it'll be a weapon :)

thats the turbo off a xr6 isnt it?

one other question is you 2.6 motor built? or are you just gonna keep it stock? (pistons, rods etc.)

just looking at GB_BB4C's GK build, and was thinking
your car would suit a similar light modification to his
with the darker fronts and rears
(knowing you have a few spare cars i'm sure you would be able to put another set in just for a look)

just an idea....
