Irish in the Netherlands with big plans

Im not that new, been registered for quiet some time now
Have a 1999 puma i got for €400 last year then spent a further €450 getting a clutch,water pump, wishbones, timing belt, brakes
Then another €300 on BBS Wheel and tyres from a 206gti with a nice et25 offset. Then finally H&R Springs after eibach stopped making puma spring anymore.

Then my research began, looking into engine swaps and customization.

Ive always like the look of the puma rally cars and drove past a racing puma for almost 3years admiring the look of it.
But i was a jap car guy, building an evo iv, then a FC3s rx7. 2x 4wd evolution colts with all evo v/vi running gear.
Then i went diesel with a is200 i swapped a mercedes e300td engine and amg gearbox and ran it at 450hp 2.4bar boost.
With many other engineering projects inbetween and custom car builds

So now my imagination has gone wild again, i will begin a project page of my journey and design goals along my reasoning for choosing the parts i have for my project puma.
