Thats looking fantastic Jimi. You putting something of a Cosworth variety in there,a reworked Pinto or something highly exotic?
, would love a YB motor but they still go for pretty strong money, also heard of people having very expensive problems with them.
Motor plans for now are a 2.0 Zetec on 45 Webers (turned round driving a Capri gearbox), should see about 170 bhp so wont be that quick (despite being gutted the shell is still quite heavy), be quick enough for me though, you've seen my driving
, good thing about the Zetec is that they are cheap as chips, got the one i have for nowt (a 77K blacktop from a 2000 Mondeo), motor can be regarded as expendable, if i blow it i'll just bung another in.
Funny you mention that Tam, the car did run a Rover V8 in it's heyday back in the early 90's, a 3.9 motor with quad Webers, sounded incredible apparently and was a bit of a legend in single stage events.
The engine bay is pretty big, would take a 5.0 Ford V8 no problem, i want to be able to drive further than the local petrol station though
