Nice, I didn't get to go to m.i.t.p despite wanting to!
Appart from the colour and arches it looks relatively mini like. So hopefully mine will be able to look standard apart from the 10" wide race wheels I've sourced!

Hopefully I will busy with a spanner or two at the weekend and will update you all with some more pictures.

Oh and I've picked up some fibreglass doors and bootlid. Hopefully this will counteract the tubing that I'm going to have to put in it to stop the chassis twisting!

I hope the owner of this car doesnt come on here - but.... what happened to taste? All the 'COSWORTH' 'V6' 24V etc - tacky. At least use some subtle badges, not giant slogans.

Are you sure?? Even after you've spent all that money trying to get a Cosworth in there and then being beaten by and engine thats the same that came in the car :)

hmmm YB engine is better id say more compact despite turbo id say this 24v engien is prretty pointless wen a honda d16 engine produce 150ish bhp as sstandard that v6 prodeuce around 200 and probably weighs that engine plus half again as much as i dislike japenese stuff small 4 cylinder turbo ftw allow YB if u have big bank balance many bhps 800+ in some cases

Abit of an update: some work is bring out sourced, so it gets done correctly and quicker! I have found someone local who seems to be up for the job!

If my pockets were really deep, there's a Greek cosworth on methanol with a supposed 1200bhp! (search YouTube - )
Although I'm aiming for a stage 3 tune which should result in around 360bhp!

I will keep people posted with things as not much has really happened recently:-(

The project has been on hold for abit, but work will commence on the 23/11/09 and should be completed by the end of January 2010.
Then all i have to do is rebuild the engine, install the wiring and do a few finishing touches to maybe get it road legal.

i have also been buying bits in preparation of getting it back...
