Agree with all of the above comments, that truly is one epic car, love everything about it apart from one thing, the exhaust. IMHO the twin pipes exiting through the bumper kind of cheapen the look of what is a stunning creation.
Funny you should say that! They are going, they look too 90's Barry boy plus the new supra diff is a bit wider where the pipes separate. I am going to have them remade with an extra box after the diff and then one exit as per the real T16 would have.

WOW just WOW!

Think my Jaw's just gone through the floor let alone just dragging along it.

Just get this out the way now for if there's ever the opportunity down the line... SHOTGUN!

Looks fabulous, well both of them do.

Wow, thanks for the nice comments, I wasn't sure if I would get nice comments or not.

The Steelie is slowly being restored, It has the full green carpets etc and even has the very rare green seatbelts which was normally only available in France (I think)

Re the Cossie Pug: I will shortly get some pics up of the stack dash and fully flocked interior and retrimmed Cossie seats

This was originally a 1.1 van before the conversion, it was on the front page of Max power in the 90s
I remember reading about this in Max Power - the days before it became a body kit catalogue. Awesome car.

I've linked to it on the PH Facebook so you should get some more attention thumbup
Thank You.

I am actually quite overwhelmed by the support, I have worked virtually every Saturday and Sunday on this car from strip down to repaint and rebuild for a year now....lots more to do though.

I spoke to Reyland today and I think I am going over to their Skyline gearbox to handle the torque which I think will be close to 500lbft and he can get the centre diff to control from full RWD to 50/50 front to rear which should be good for track days to get the power more rearward. I will have his AP conversion on the brakes too.

I have driven it hard at 360bhp and it is very fast but quite tame and puts all the power down in the wet, I think it will spin up soon though.

Mark Shead at MA Developments is going to map it.

he is the man for mapping cossie engines... he did mine years back and I used to whip everything down the strip with 'less' claimed power smile

love the car, can imagine its very rewarding to drive.

Really like this. Would be nice to see some up the build pics with commentary. Do you have a pic of it when it was a 90's Max Power cover car then too?
Awesome work. smile

Yes, I have the original magazine and will post it up along with some of the "before" pics and part way through. For example the car had 100 liters of high build primer to take the ripples out of the kit and the normal pug panels.


Mark Shead is the absolute guru of Cossie mapping and such a nice bloke, I asked around and his name kept coming up with comments like "if Mark says 500 bhp then that is exactly what it will have" the Cossie world is a bit like the SAS it seems everyone you meet is ex SAS and every Cossie is 400 bhp plus.

After P4cks' Clio Williams, I don't want to be seen as the hot hatch restoration project vulture but... If you ever want to sell that... I'll be waiting! wink

I'm wiping the drool off the floor as I type!

Looking forward to following the progress of the Cossie as well - love projects like these!
