    I'm starting work on removing the 145 bhp GDT engine from this car, along with all the special GT Turbo parts, to fit my spare atmo engine and go classic rallying.

    [​IMG]

    Currently the car is at a Garage (Mikeanics, in Congleton) experienced in modified cars. Mike has set up the engine to prove its power, and I have rolling road plots of the power and torque curves if anyone wants to see them.

    The engine is still running in the car, at the moment.

    As the car is familiar to some on here, let me report that I have found a replacement roof skin to fit, and also a headlining!

    The roll cage is in, and we've raised the suspension a bit, ready for the rougher, rally roads.

    Now, does anyone want to buy the engine and GTT carb conversion? As I say, it can be seen running at the moment. I am sure that Mike and his team would be happy to fit the conversion into your car, and he is not expensive!

    Otherwise I'll pop it on eBay in due course. I'm not desperate for the money but thought I'd offer it on here first, as that may be less hassle than some of the Dreamers and daft questions that will follow an eBay lsting :(

    Hi Roy - please can I ask you to re-post as a separate topic? You have asked a question not related to the original post, and so your post won't get attention from people who aren't interested in the original post...

    Thanks,

    Pm new a price you are looking at for the conversion I know the man who used to own it and had all the work done on the engine the only thing that puts me off is the second bulge in the bonnet due to raised Carb. If u have any standard spares I'm always in need of bits where are u based?
