So I’ve now owned my G100 for 7 years.
Started its life off as a mizuno sports cb23. As you do, searching gumtree for spares and come across a turbo motor. Yes the cb61.
Not too many of these running around WA. Im yet to see another charade running a cb61.
Has been alot of trial and error But over the years i have stuck with it and seem to have it running pretty good!
Engine has been taken to oversize 1006cc
Factory bottom end, decked for low compression
Top end has port & polished head
Stronger valve springs.
Factory RHB32 with a new 7psi actuator.
Factory blow through carby
Commodore vn/vs alternator
Bosch VL external fuel pump
8mm pick up and feed to carby
Proflow rising rate fuel reg.
Prosport evo gauges
Boost, water and AFR for tuning.
Whiteline front and rear sway bars
Front and rear strut braces
Rear lower frame brace
Was on GT monroe shocks with lowered springs.
In August i decided it was time to take her off the road for some much needed rust repairs , panel work and a respray.
I searched for a straight, clean body with minimal damage and rust but no luck so just had to commit!
I ended up removing all windows, stripped the interior, pulled out the engine and suspension.
The front passenger side had always leaked water, so when i seen the rust damage i wasnt too suprised. Both left and right pillars needed some work. Also managed to get the part of they body where the check strap is on both sides. Had you replace a piece under the drivers side seal then it was general dents from there.
While the shell is stripped down i decided to seam weld the strut towers and shave the un used holes in the engine bay.
I ordered all new superpro bushes, new lower control arms. Sand blast and painted all the suspension arms.
Bought a set of Yellow Speed coilovers.
I couldn’t find any new bushes for the gear linkages to made my own out of old sway bar bushes i had sitting around.
Strengthened all engine and gearbox mounts
Rebuilt the front, rear brakes and bought a set of DBA T2 slotted rotors
All the aftermarket sway bars and braces are being powder coated.
Factory GTti Speedline wheels which ive had the face polished and repainted.
Ive got a factory cb61 dash cluster. Which im going to put in with working tacho and turbo light. Even have the factory boost sensor.
Ordered new carpet.
My old bumpers were abit sad so got a new set off a mate.
Fitted factory cb61 front lip
Painted front and rear tow hooks red
Factory mud flaps on rear.
Couldn’t get a factory set of GTti body kit so got a fibre glass kit which seems to be made fairly well.
Going to be painting white. Nothing fancy. Just want it clean.
Thats all for now.
Will upload a heap of photos as i go.
