turboluva: There's a guy up in Shepparton with AU/BA offset wheels on his EA turbo. I think he said his spacers were like 12 or 15mm. They were really good quality ones - stuffed if i know where he got them from. So the answer to your question is no - you would need another 5mm or so for clearance. But they'd be handy for increasing track, giving you slightly better traction.
The wiring thats missing is just where the wires from the cruise components went right into the main harness. As i didn't have all day to trace the wires, i didn't get ALL of it, although i was able to get the connections at either end of the wires.
Sorry to interrupt your post coxy but i'd thought you would be interested to know. The EA turbo you spoke of from shepp with the spacers has been stripped and sold, making way for an EF turbo project. The low kay white stock futura 5 speed from a few weeks ago, Is now a Spandox special effects green/gold, rolls on 18's, dumped, Turbo'd - front bumper cut to make way for big new shiny intercooler. Greddy engine management, and once again a decent stereo. (153 dB on epic-150 in car dB meter)
soo ummm when are u coming to shepparton again??!!
Well, i'll start by saying that its a shame to strip such a great looking car. But you cant stop progress, or the need for more power either. I can't wait to see the newby!!! I get my licence back on the 23rd, so i might call up in the first weekend of march. I've STILL gotta pick up the plug fitting for that display unit too. Between the new house, work etc. etc., the spray job is yet to come, and I need a cooler and piping to finish the turbo conversion. The reco'ed diff and new brakes are ready to go on this week too. I'll post pics tomorrow.
