Greig's Moonraker RS

Recommended Posts

It's about time to set up a thread, thanks for the new area Si :D

Always fancied an RS since they came out but the prices aren't budging unfortunately, until I got the chance of this one, high mileage, needed a bit of work to sort it but I fancied a challenge ;) and couldn't refuse the deal!

Looks ok from a distance...

But upon closer inspection it was just coated in stone chips, dents, rusted arches and the wheels are slowly dying a death :lol: even the engine bay had its own composted area!

One good point is the interior is immaculate :D

So got a full respray and added a black roof ;)

Then H&R springs, 20mm spacers all round as well as a decat and Mountune Airbox

*tapatalk won't let me add anymore photos*

 

Next on the list is a wheel refurb (or complete new shoes maybe) and a new zorst system as its too quiet :lol:

Very susprising to see a car left to get to that state, especially something like an RS!! :blink:

I know! Used as a daily driver/work horse from new and not really washed properly, mechanically it's sound though :D

Even the strut brace was rusty! :lol:

Strong win.


Any idea what exhaust you're gonna get?

Gonna go for a KMS Firestorm or Thunderstorm - YouTube it, they sound awesome!

Sits sweet now greig! I see why you have her a full spray job now! :)

Cheers, yeah was really bad!

Just dropped it off today to get the spray job sorted out, especially after the white emulsion scenario! :lol:

I know, I want flames too! I think remap/uprated injectors is the way to go to get flames for sure ;) maybe next year!

Cheers for the vid link Ben :D

No problem. I spend a sad amount of my time looking at exhaust clips on YouTube recently lol.


There was a flame video with the Thunderstorm exhaust but the quality wasn't that good.


You got the the best colour for the RS too! 8-)

Cheers, I agree with you Ben, I like the blue :D


If I can shift these coilovers I can have enough to buy the zorst so might stick them on eBay and see what happens.

The KMS Firestorm in a group buy, not quite as loud and drony as the Thunderstorm but will be loud enough... And £120 cheaper :D

Just the wheels refurbed, bigger downpipe, new intercooler and maybe a remap later on, but that's it... Considering I wasn't planning on doing much to it! :lol:

Wheels staying standard colour or going to change that? Going to get some uprated cams etc too? Secretly hoping you make it sound like a rally car...
