Well many of you know me.. So I guess it's about time I did this before I get too old to remember what I've been through with this build.
This is my mk3 1994 Suzuki Swift GTi.. I purchased this car in March of 2014 from a lad in Camden, South of Sydney. I met him in Wollongong, and drove the beast back to Canberra. It was the bumpiest, bone rattling journey of my life and I straight away knew this car and I were in for a long haul.

This is my Second GTi, my first I purchased in 1996 second hand from the Suzukidealership in Gosford, NSW. At the time the car was two years old with 35000 on the dial, I did a few mods to that car, lowered kingys, k&n filter and a 2.25 exhaust, was a great car and swore I would keep it, but I lost my job and Mr debt collector came a knocking and repossessed it after a few months of being unemployed and not being able to make the payments, devastated. I swore I would own another one day.
And this is it!

As you can see, the motor was a joy to look at, was never gonna clean that up much, plus the ROH wheels had more rash than a chicken pox so gave those a good coat of bogan black

So three weeks in and this happens, big knock starts from the bay then starts throwin blue smoke for a few hundred meter down the road. Bonus was I had that guy, in a BA Falcon sitting on my ass, being a .. well .. BA Falcon driver really.. he'd still be cleaning my oil off his car. Lol
Time for work to begin.
