Scala Progress

Post by Scala-wag » Sun Dec 23, 2018 11:48 pm

No huge project. Just tweaks to a clean car.
1st photo: Answering the call
2nd photo: Got her back home
3rd photo: After 4 weeks finally found the wheels I wanted
4th photo: After another 2 weeks decided to go coilovers instead of lowering springs

Good choice on the coilies - the only thing to note is that they're are a bit fatter than you'd expect and higher offset wheels can rub. If those RMs are factory size (ET33?) then you should be fine.

Yeah, genuine E33 as far as I know. It’s still in the post though, so a bit of blind faith on the purchase. Hoping it all arrives first week of Jan

My next query is the engine. It’s got a solid original engine with 97k on the clock. But the more I drive it, the more I think I want to hear a 2.8 VR6 when I turn the ignition key...

Is your car fuel injection or carb?
