Hi Guys,

Ive been rebuilding this 96 since the car was kindly given as a wedding present a couple of years ago.

Its nearing getting ready for the road and though it might be nice to start getting some pics uploaded.

We wanted it to have a bit more va va voom than standard but still a nice road spec.

Engine wise

Its a rebuild 1710 with kent cam, std valves with a bit of porting and deshrouding, ct manifold with twin 40 Jenvey throttle bodies and a DTA s40 ECU

The tank has been modified to fit an internal swirl pot and HP fuel pump.

Half a coil has been removed from the springs and twin adjustable AVO are on order


The floor was pretty rotten:

Welding was done by Mark at MSA autobodies in Summer Bridge not far from Harrogate

This looks like it's going to be good!
Be interested to see some pics and info on the throttle body set up and what's involved with the ECU...

Cheers

a bit more progress

the throttle body linkage and bracket for the crank position sensor is made and the engines now in the car!




also had the rocker covers powder coated - they where then washed out. I thought I out to remove the splash guards just in case any gri was lodged there - this is how much!!!!

The inlet manifold is the C&T (Conversions & Tuning of Tulse Hill) manifold developed in late 60's.
