My 2.0S

Post by Major_Tom » Thu Jun 03, 2021 2:35 pm

..figured it was time for some new pictures. 150bhp, 170nm pinto on twin webers, 3.77:1 open diff, head skim -40thou, with a Newman Cams PH4.5 284 474 rally cam, drives nice through town at low revs despite what the literature suggested, can't recommend that cam enough. Bestek electronic ignition with rally distributor. PLR exhaust and manifold. Axle location kit, 190lb front springs -1". Adjustable shocks all round. 14" Dragslots. No engine pics as my carbs look like shit after my Pipercross air filters burst into flames after a spit back. Pictures taken at an abandoned hospital.

He looks dangerous, strong, tough, I like him, maybe some bodywork.
Enjoy it

Yeah it's lots of fun.

Yeah you can really see the fact its got patterned wings on in some of those pics, but if you straighten them up in one plane, it opens up huge gaps or doesn't sit level in others, bloody annoying :lol: still, makes the other motorists faces that much more amusing when you go flying past them when it looks so beat up 👍

It looks great, understated but with definite purpose. How does your fuel consumption compare with standard ?

Looks mean and nasty (in a good way).
I expect you enjoy wiping the smiles off the faces off boy racers in their Corsas !
