hello boys and girls,

I know it is 3 months ago you heard something from me, but i was very busy with anything except the calibra...
But did some little things last few weeks, did some cable work, fitted front bumper to see if it fits, bought a restorated rear axle and ordered a package of powerflex black series for the rear of the car.







If everything is going as i want, ive got some big interior upgrades before my vacation (end of august)

See ya :D

I know you all should have thought the project is stopped, but it isnt :)
After a long vacation we picked up the project a month ago.
A good friend of me is helping me to finish it, so i'm not alone anymore

A lot of pics to show u what we have done last month;

Bought a new car, a Green Calibra from 1996 with a V6 X25XE inside



Sold my old 1997 Iceland X20XEV


And ofcourse the projectcar;


We started with replace the rear axle, its finished at the moment but some pics;





Replaced the old handbrakeshoes for new ones;


Some EBC Discs;


While neil was doing the rear axle, i mounted the right engine mount, a new belt and the A/C Pump (not installed, but it wa required for the belt.





The car at that moment;



Old vs New;



Needed to paint some parts because we dont want to have 5 different colors on the car;

Coated rear axle, With new Powerflex Black series arm rubbers

Enough for today, will update soon as possible :)

Hi man. Would it be possible to make a run first and before map, just to understand wich might be the gain of your engine with mods done?
Thanx in advance.

I'm working (unfortunately too slow for my thoughts) on my x30xe with ported heads, Friederich motorsport exhaust manifold, custom inlet manifold (larger pipework and plenum) and I'm searching for the largest amount of informations related to GM V6 engines results down the net
C20NE becomed C30XE+X25XE+C20LET 3 Cali is better than one

hello,

it's been a while, but plans are totally changed. After some contact with speedequipment about the clutch, i have to drive 1000km 'normal' because of the stage2 black diamond clutch. so a remap or dynorun will be after that. Also i bought a Vortech V9F Supercharger, and want to fit that before the car goes away for the remap. (don't want to pay a couple of 100's for a remap, and get after 2 months another remap because the charger). But are there more calibra's here with a supercharger? Will update as soon as possible with some picture's :)

It's been i while i posted some pics, so here's a little update for you guys :)
Had a lot of problems with any kind of things, 9 out of 10 are solved now.


A friend make a full costom 2,5Inch exhaust with costom headers, packed with titanium heat wrap.


mounted costom rear bumper for last exhaust part, then i noticed i got some paint issues,





and ofcourse the clubcalibra stickers :) have to say love the color combination (blue/white)



Car back in my storage :)


Meanwhile i bought some parts, also a new costom made bumper;
fitted my front bumper for the intercooler/supercharger


another one of the exhaust;


get the exhaust underneath the car because of several leaks, so we had to fix that first;


enough for today, next update -> Interior! :)
