Default Novus F56 JCW Build Thread - 9th June 2016, 08:13 AM

Well I thought id keep some form of build thread together on here. Unfortunately I'm starting this a bit late so a bit short of photos so have borrowed some from Lohens social media of my car.

Anyway picked the car up at Christmas- Thunder grey with Chilli red roof and caps and Chilli pack no other options as wasn't really fussed. After a quick polish -



So then started with the simple mods

Black light rings
Sports Ariel

So onto the better bits so far

Quaife LSD fitted



Forge Intercooler fitted



Remus Valvetronic fitted .

Link to Lohens video




Eibach springs fitted no picture but these wont be on long anyway.


Car before the intercooler







Really enjoying the car so will update as I go along.

Thanks for looking.

Rob

Sounds epic Rob. I love a zaust on a mini. Nothing and I mean nothing comes close. I was sat in the wife's countryman the other day just sat in between to big walls Reving away in sport mode getting lots of strange looks. Can't help myself though
