  1. when my type 9 destroyed its lay shaft i rebuilt mine with heavy duty lay gear bearings and changed the gearing to v6 ratios i also sourced some heavy duty synchros for it. my 242bhp 260ft lb supercharged zetec didnt break the new box ! i also fitted the a quaife ATB which is great bit of kit transformed the car..

    With v6 ratios and a 3.54 diff the car would pull 65mph in 2nd gear.

  2. Just a heads up, when buying these cheap policy's from the above and probably others, if you cancel the policy because let's say you sold your car they do not refund a single penny ! My policy was approx 2months old and her words were " there is no refund due after cancellation fees blah blah ". robbing bleeps ! I won't be using said company again for anything.... So beware peeps 

  3. It took me 6yrs but I've sold the kit car, i.m done with kit cars now, after 12yrs of kit car moding and owning I've got bored of it all.... Bought a big Merc instead,  1car does it all tows the van, goes like *bleep* of a stick. Comfortable and SAFE.

    I've probably missed stuff off the list Have receipts for best part 20k This is a very quick car, not for the faint hearted! Good for 60 in the low 4,s. You can pop to the shops or blast it round a track, eat up the b roads, cruise up the motorway. Irritate bikers with its performance. It really is a sorted all round car. £10000 ovno

    Can email photos if interested

    Or will swap for hot hatch tintop ie focus st, golf/ Scirocco GTi etc 

  5. My car has a 2.0l swirl pot in the engine bay, fed from the rear via a facet silvertop low pressure pump, I did track days in the hot summer we just had with no issues what so ever on the fuel system.the oil overhead and the brakes melted but no fuel heat issues or surging problems. Why is it in the front ? There was no room in the back and the fuel tank wasn't suitable for modification at the time I converted the car to fuel injection. Use a good lp pump and it will be fine, mount the pot away from the exhaust in the air flow if possible and it works great.
