Been wanting once since I was 17, I'm now 19 and can finally insure and afford to run/fix one!

87k miles, Turbosmart BOV, Full 3in exhuast, powder coated wheels, silly wheel nuts and a few issues.

Tiny rust bubbles on the rear arches (the least of my worries).

Heavy amounts of smoke when revved from an idle (Turbo seals i suspect amplified by the lack of a cat).

Runs ice cold when moving at speed (thermostat stuck open?)

No power steering when not revved up (Broken power steering pump)

All in all not the end of the world, plan is to get it to the point it's a comfy fast jap motorway weapon.

Welcome Josh,

Nice choice. Never personally seen a 6 in person. A proper sleeper weapon.

Where abouts are you based?

Now that the 6mps is now old means that less people are tuned in to spotting one than they used to be. Yes, quite a sleeper.
