Sounds like an exciting, if expensive, project Nick. How many horsepower do you think it will have after this?
Thanks Paul.

Mate from seeing what a few guys have said on fb I should be seeing 145-150 bhp but obviously the way to get accurate figures on this is to get it on a rolling road which I will prob do at some stage. The cam obviously is very important to get right. I am getting a complete cam kit rather than just the cam so all new with uprated springs. Suppose it would be interesting just to see after all the work is done what the figure actually is.

Re the cost yes indeed its not for the faint hearted mate !! Its no secret the 45s alone brand new from Webcon are £975+vat !! Then you have the cost of the Kent Cam Kit plus of course the modifications to the head and labour charges from Tickover for setting it all up for me. Seen a few second hand 45's for sale for refurbishment but tbh I always wanted to buy brand new 45's ! It will be worth it.

So Paul all very exciting mate. I have always wanted to explore the potential the great Pinto has to offer. I am only really tapping into it as dig even deeper into your pockets and its amazing what the Pinto can achieve. Great engine !!! Paul I have a few other tweaks/changes I am doing to compliment this head work so you will prob walk past B112 and not recognise it next time you see me :lol: :lol:

I put a Kent FR32 in a late style pinto head a few years ago. It will really unlock the potential of a nicely ported head whilst remaining very civilised and tractable in traffic.
Hey thanks very much for this info mate. Very helpful as there are quite a few Kent cams to choose from and its getting the right one that is the trick. I was looking at the FR32 from what others have said so hearing you mention it too in a similar set up this is looking like the one I will most likely opt for.

Hi Nick,
It sounds like you have some exciting jobs in hand at Tickover, and possible more to come in the future. You're certainly making B112 into your dream Capri. 8-)
Thanks Andrew :) Yes Siree !!! I have been dreaming of doing so much to B112 over the time I have owned it and plugged away at it and I really am getting there !! Weber 45's with a head modified is going to be the icing on the cake and was always in the planning but I just wanted to get other stuff sorted first in prep for this stage ! I still have more planned but that can wait... :shock: :lol:

But while B112 is with Gus and Clive this time I am going to get the front brakes upgraded too. Will get the Hi Spec 283mm vented discs as I have 15" wheels so can take these. Just makes sense to get better braking power with the increase in power. Just dont ask how much :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now if he could get it water proofed as well ... ;)
Is there a way to graft one of those carcoons onto the Capri bodywork ? :lol: That's an idea for Tickover visit number 6.

I think Tom would be having a fit if he knew :lol:
:shock: :lol: :lol: Guys you may think I never drive over 60 but believe me I do let my hair down and certainly will with this set up :lol:
I can confirm we hit 63mph on the M2 coming back from Deal :lol:
Next years drive to Deal could be somewhat different Jason. Hope you like petrol stations :lol:

Sadly some of these these mods will probably lighten your pockets at insurance time too :roll:

Still worth the smiles per gallon though :lowrider: :D

Yes Jason, I can do a test on the performance of petrol station fuel pump nozzles, and the flexabilty qualities of the hoses in relation to their length and ease of extension :wave:

We was doing a postage stamp run from John o groats to Lands End and one of my Drop offs was at Edinburgh Castle . It was for a childrens home in Romania. I had to use a escort van to get in to the castle but carried straight on to the top before the security was alerted to a non Scottish Van I had a few police and the castles army around me :lol: and I had no ID with me :lol: can’t beat the old days :doh:
