Well, its been a while since Ive posted pictures of my car and for very good reason. Its been around 6 Months in the making but I decided to take the plunge and place a T-Series engine in Olli :D Its was a long and expensive journey but it was well worth it, its something I always wanted to do. M.A.D Autocare of Huddersfield carried out the work and his service is 2nd to none as is the attention to detail. The block has been fully rebuilt and all in all its taken around 4-6 Months including all of the parts. This as far as Im aware is the only working Monogram Turbo so I hope it stays that way for PoL :D So without further ado here is the new and improved Olli.

Wow, didnt think you could improve on Olli, but it looks a fantastic upgrade.

Looks like Olli has just rolled out of the factory.

Hope you are pleased with the additional power.

Look forward to seeing it at PoL.
