This is my car, she looks a little different now but there isnt much that stays in front of her. Twin wankel, twin Turbo, 450bhp, 1/4 mile in 11.8 but now set up for track. She is my pride and joy.
It was my love of tinkering with bikes that got me back into cars in a big way!
Twin wankel? Two engines?
I have been into cars probably longer than bikes, but i thought the thread was about anything else retro other than cars or bikes....
Pug 205 are my softspot... i'm on my 4th Mi16 engine now and plans for a supercharged version in the future, I do all the work myself, rebuild engine, make loom etc.... ultimate cars for me.... Metro 6R4 and Pug T16
Car seats, alloy wheels, engines, spoilers, turbos are my thing, who said cars!!!
and yes twin wankel. The 13b engine consists of two rotors and two sequential turbos. I had a mint 205 1.9 GTI and to this day i still think it was the best ever small hot hatch and i have had the Civic Type R, Clio 172 and 182 and god knows what else. The Mi16 is a great choice, i have all this 2l turbo junk! NA in a car like that is always best with twin webbers and no fuel injection!
You have my respect as very few other people really do it all themselves. I do but only too learn. I ruined my first RX7 as i did a single turbo conversion and forgot to re-programme the ecu to fuel richer. Massive engine fire and one seriously expensive carbon bonnet down the toilet!!!!!
Bikes are so much simpler!
This is the car nearly finished, lots of interior work left to do inside but featured in Jap Car and Max as well as J Tuner and a couple of car sites. Never thought to mention it on here! Off the road until the summer!!
Old school loving with a modern twist!
