I have a 1.6 bottom end on it atm, Its the engine that was running silly quick at action, smoked though didnt it, cant work out why as the bottom end looked fine, head I know is sweet, so must have been the Hg when I mated them, I didnt skim the head, so probably is that, I have the full setup, both bottom ends, if you wanted it Pm me an offer ;)

I guess I may have to change the topic title as there are now half the amount of valves as there were back when this thing last made noises! The car sat off the road for over 4 years before I began a full strip down and rebuild. All of the rust and rot was removed from the shell and has gone through a large amount of transformation. 
 

As seen in the previous images the car has now got a 6point cage, stitch welded chassis and a lot of changes to the front end to allow for a removable fibreglass front end. 
 

Most of the modifications are in line with enabling me to have great serviceability while racing and enjoying the car mainly for sprint and hill climb racing. 
 

the AFH power plant has moved out and a 1.3PY G40 in its place. I will start with a relatively stock engine setup and get this run in after a full rebuild before the power modifications begin. 
 

Engine spec:

GT inlet

de-wedged TB

FMIC

Stainless system (to be fit) 

65mm 5pk belt 

ported charger (unsure of amount. Will get serviced and rebuilt once proven running setup)

 

The cad has many upgrades including mk1 golf coilovers. 4pot brakes. Stage 3 subframe to name a few. 
 

Do we still have to get image URLs to post images here? 🧐
