CweLibra Turbo.
« on: June 12, 2012, 22:56:04 PM »
Cant  believe?! that day has come ;) ive bought Calibra Turbo few days ago, my dream car... Its been mostly used by a granny so its almost mint :) haha kidding, its overall in good shape, but engine is getting hot and it uses more oil then gasoline :) i knew that so i was ready to change the head to coscast since i have smith but testing the water showed no gases in it also water tank pressure test showed around 5bar... i will go to mechanic in a few days i assume turbo eats my oil and we are suspicious of clogged radiator since car was not used from 2005-2010 then driven on LPG.. it says 131k on the clock which is also suspicious, it has first color, everything is stock except the LPG install which i might remove since i drive my 8v on lpg for years, its 1994 metallic green with cream leather which might be swapped since a pillars are black, also dials are black 260km/h ive seen only few like that on turbos... anyways here are the pics, i never washed it, interior needs cleaning but first is first, engine needs to be solved, also transfer box is working thanks to lame FWD switch (a guy used it to make fuel consumption lower) so 4wd was used only in snow and it got saved even tho accumulator was never changed i bet oil

MY FIRST PRESENT WAS 4x4 STICKER FROM MY FRIEND IT WAS A JOKE!!!!!! i like it debadged! B2B Pic is with my beloved red 8v

You have the cream coloured floor, which makes me think the interior is original. Looking good :)

Yup carpet might have been changed too but i dont mind, turbos are very rare in Serbia and we cant import and legally reg euro 2, i was following turbos for years and actively searching to buy for around a year... There were random 4stud turbo calibras, or without 4x4 or very suspicious ones, mine was illegal too but police took it and it was auctioned. Thats the only way to have legal euro2 engine :). She is going to visit mechanic tonight so after servicing and good checkup we might end up rebuilding the engine i will prepare coscast head if needed after that turbo rebuild is next :p

Well, its been a while... i got it last week after rebuild with used LET pistons, also turbo wasnt rebuilt :). I started with complete interior cleaning :), driver seat wasnt removed before this, thread lock was holding it tight :)... After rebuild we ended up changing radiator because it was clogged and temperature was high again lol...
