| The goals of the ATCR are to create an
International Database of Owners with access to turbo knowledge and products that can be
utilised to make turbo ownership easier and more enjoyable for all.
We NEED YOUR INPUT!!
This includes getting
together for different activities and also information in servicing and modifying
different turbo vehicles. I would like to ask that anyone with any hints or specialist
knowledge to submit via Email or Post, for the benefit of us all. This information
includes general articles and service and mechanical data.

I remember the day my wife Pauline and I
went off to buy her a brand spanking NEW just released Nissan EXA.
The Nissan Car salesman had not even heard of it, let alone
This did not deter us from ordering it with an out clause
that said if we did not have it by two weeks time we could have our money back. A not
inconsiderable amount of over AUD$ 17,000.00 in total but we only gave him $500 deposit.
Well you can imagine the two weeks waiting with Pauline ringing every day
to get an update on delivery. Well it seemed like it to the salesman anyway I'm sure;-)
When the big day came two weeks later and still NO EXA,
that was the end of our arrangement. He could not understand why someone would do that to
him! We had heard through a friend that there was a BLACK Manual with Sunroof just pining
away in a showroom over in Glen Waverley. If you are bored with this just remember
YOU felt when after many years you were close to getting that dream wheels! The deal was
done almost immediately we got there, but I did screw them down on a set of aftermarket
mags Pauline fancied.
Run it in?!? You must be joking, this is a manual turbo
with fuel injection that took a Porsche 928 at the lights on the way home. Luck for us that I
was not driving the next two days later when Pauline was on her way home from work. Seems
there was a funny loud noise coming
from under the front somewhere and the steering was
Well she stopped Thank Goodness, and checked to see that
the front drivers wheel was at an unusual angle to the side of the car.
Only took the Car Yard about an hour to come and get it
onto the back of a flat tray for the trip back to the Yard.
Yes those shining new Mag wheels had the wrong lug nuts to
hold the wheels on and they let go. We got it back a day later and enjoyed thrashing
hell out of it for a few years until we sold it to get her a Ford Capri .
