Um My name is Jacque Tibia .
I'm the owner of the R 32 M K five model .
Uh I bought it in 2009 brand new .
Um The first night out I raised my boot with a G T I and I lost the race .
So um we decided to turbocharge the car .
So that was the first and the last race I lost after that race .
Um The car had 3000 K's on the clock and um we decided to strip the vehicle so that we can obviously install a um a turbocharger .
Initially on the car , we started with a G T 35 turbo at that stage .
There was no turbo parts available for the vehicle that was in 2009 .
So over the years , we decided to , to upgrade parts internally .
It's running with a precision 64 66 with Wasner pistons and Waner Conrades .
It's a Ford motor and then on the internal side , um we've got H P A intake manifold , still standard cast manifold .
Um On the injector side , we've got 980 cc injectors um running flex fuel at the moment .
E 70 .
Eventually we started off with trying to tune the vehicle with a plug and play set that never worked out .
So in 2012 , we found Shain from the E tuner side to assist us with the car .
Um He was willing to assist us with the R and D on the car , took us over four years to complete the tune on the vehicle .
We've got two E C US that we can run the car on the first one is on the E tune at E C U .
Um And then we've got the S X um seven plus .
Next gen um Craig assisted us eight months ago to get the vehicle to the 733 kilowatt mark .
We are currently boosting 1.7 bar base time .
Currently on the vehicle is um 10.3 at 224 kilometers an hour over a , the launch is set at 5000 R P MS .
And let's see what it does .
That's it .
Let's look at the times we were running a 10.4 seconds .
The exhaust is a four inch straight through exhaust , so it's extremely loud , especially in the car .
I think the next changeover that we'll be doing is trying to look at the car manifold um improving that um installing , you know , proper branches on the vehicle to see if we can't get the gas flow sorted out on the turbo side at this stage , I'm the most wanted person in my neighborhood .
So everybody knows when I start up the car on a Saturday morning , test driving it and also testing , especially around the the area on the water meth side , we have two sets of water meth .
The first one is a 630 um C C injector , main injector at 1.5 bar boost .
We opened the port injection .
Um So that would help us from 1.5 up to the two bar range .
The biggest challenges on this car was um the gearbox , we were running AD Q 2 50 .
That is the original gearbox on the car .
We kept on burning clutches .
We've lost almost eight sets of clutches over the past eight years and um we've lost one of the gearboxes on the third gear .
So we're running currently with AD Q 500 gearbox set up with 1000 horsepower clutches on the car .
The R 32 at this stage is um 100% street .
So the Air con is working .
Um We've got the radio still working .
All the windows are in the vehicle .
So if we say it's a 10.3 2nd , it is as is with street tires , we don't run any semi slicks on the car at this stage .
So on the wheel side , we've got O Z um rims and standard three tires on the car on the brakes .
We've got standard brakes at the back Varis in the front .
The reason why we went for is just to reduce the weight on the front section .
We lost almost eight K G S per wheel on the varies .
The car is running BC coil overs whereby you can adjust the , the , the hardness of the shocks , front and back on the interior side .
We have removed the original seats , front and back .
We installed lightweight seats in the front section and we have removed all the seats at the back on the inside of the vehicle .
We've got three gauges , one is fuel pressure .
The other one is obviously the boost control and the measuring of the boost .
And then we've got a Ronni gauge that measures the A F R .
The final test for us is to push the car down to a nine seconds .
It's currently weighing 1.72 tons .
So , um for us to get into the nine seconds , we need to work on the 60 ft .
So the idea is to improve the branches on the vehicle and then if we cannot get to the nine seconds , then we will have to add Nitro on it .
So I do have the nitrous system on the vehicle connected to a vehicle , but we haven't tasted it as yet .
Yeah , the reason why I really like the R 32 is obviously you get to a stop street to a robot and you are always the underdog .
They always think you know , they will beat you even the B MS .
So , um , it is nice to beat the Porsche 91 ones , the G T threes , the G T R S , you know , when you stand next to them at a robot and , um , they normally lose the race .
So , um , I think that's the best thing , um , of this car is , is the torque , especially at the top end .
And then the launch , the 5000 R PM launch on the C system is brutal .
