How much is their kit?
Promotive do a really comprehensive kit for £3500 inc stuff like new rad and electric reverse.
Its not electric reverse, it just reverse the drive direction so 6 speed in reverse as well as forwards.
this does look very interesting

This gives great performance at a fraction of the cost of building a race spec 'A' series engine with similar power.
Looks like the engine itself is around £600-900. This would be a good alternative.
I spoke to LynxAE many years ago regarding an early version of this kit and they were talking £4000 ~ £4500 then, it will be interesting to see the final price. Still cheaper than a race spec A series as already stated
I spoke to lynx prior to promotive...... and they said no.
at that time the kit wasnt ready for distribution.....but at that time their 'anicipated cost' was more expensive than a pro-mo.
my favourite feature is the standard gear stick retained as your sequential shifter

one thing I noticed was this
drove all day and did 40 miles, not that fast then is it?
...the conversion ran faultlessly all day and covered 40 road miles, boy is it fast.

Could be an interesting for track days & hill climbs if you're fast with a spanner.

That doesn't work though because the cops can time you between 2 certain points on your given route and then work out how fast you where going, it was done to some guys racing down the a46 a few years ago, so just be careful if anyone is thinking of doing this as you might just be the one to be made an example of.
Noticed they hadn't connected the speedo so the bobbies couldn't get em for speeding.....

Do you refit the A Series when you want to reverse
It's got an electric reverse built into the diff housing mounting

Seems like a lot of money especially considering the promotive kit.
