Good luck with it mate,

space your paragraphs in blocks... just makes it easier to read!

I'm thinking about doing the same thing but my budget is lower than yours!

lost me in parts but.....

realistically you want a black LE, so do the black LE, even if you manage to make jamies green one your ideal 500bhp monster you will always be wishing it was a black LE!

And you being you that will probably mean buying a black LE and paying to have all the suspension and engine swapped between them.

Totally understand the wheeling and dealing thing though, thats how I'm funding mine in a sense.

bought a job lot of bits from someone who had sold their coop for £150, fitted some bits I wanted and sold my old bits for about a £100, BUT I still have front and rear calipers from the original purchase to refurbish then I can sell mine on for probably about £150, so small profit which covered the small loss I made on changing my interior etc etc

to be honest It's something I'd love to learn, a friend of a friend years ago done fire poi, only seen him a couple of times but totally memerised.

that and the fact my GF would love it! shes a performer and loves alternative type stuff.

Not got any spares that would be of any use to you though, but I do make a great cup of tea while other folk are working! lol

mate, you sound confusied.com

what car do you want?? The black LE.

you want big power.... your getting a forged engine built.

you have loads of seriously good mods on Jamies old car. Lucky.

what i would do is Pick the coupe you want, (The black LE) Put the FMIC SIP WIDGET and other stuff onto the black LE and wait for the forged engine.

then the stuff your left with sell and re-coupe your money.
swap the parts you need to swap and stop confusing it!!

sorry to say this but it looks like you dont want to spend a penny in this which is cool, im italian i know how to be tight.

but you will have to spend a bit the recover the money in the mountin of parts you have.

i would go for the set up Jamie's old car has, it works well, it worked for him, it handel the power out put fine,just go with it!

then tweak it later in life when you have the bigger issue sorted.

also, to save some money, why not justr try the swapping of parts on your own?

shocks and springs an that stuff is a matter of 5/6 bolts.

there are enough how to guides for you to do this!

I do enjoy reading, but this is like looking at War and Peace!

Would it hurt to put in some paragraphs? And less 'story.' This isn't GCSE English you don't need to add filler. Just keep to the bare facts! smile

You know what they say; A picture is worth a thousand words... wink

Come on Rob keep at it mate, sod what anyone says. This is a forum for Fiat Coupe enthusiasts not english teachers. There are loads of people genuinely interested in reading about what you're doing, don't shut us out!

Anyone who finds Robs (or anyone elses) posts hard to read - don't read them. It's your choice, nobody's forcing you to read it so if you don't like it, don't read it. Ffs leave the lad alone and let him say what he's got to say. I for one will be waiting for your next post Rob. smile
