Coupe/ SAAB/ SE5 thing...

today wasnt meant to happen really, but seeing as we have to wait for the quaife diff and the sun was shining we decided to get it on it's wheels a bit earlier than planned.

overall width will be similar to the essex, but it depends on which inlet we use and where we run the downpipe, but space really doesnt seem to be an issue at the moment. height is ok as we have plans to modify the sump and gain a little more headroom and lower the block in the chassis, hence the un...
