    Thought i'd finally stick my motor in the members section, I have had it since Nov 03 and it has certainly undergone 'some' changes since then;) Iam in the process of giving it a once over as its looking pretty tired these days.

    To give you some background i've started pics from 03!!, i'll add pics to current date in the next few days.

    future plans are sorting the body work, getting the car handling better by developing the chassis, and building a new motor! :)

    lots more pics to come though before we get to current spec, cage prep and install was hard work!!

    :)

    Brilliant. Car looks better in the flesh!
    Are you going to change the 16v engine or is it staying?
