I have 2 suspension turrets including wishbones, springs, shocks, hubs and calipers sitting in the garden ready to be stripped down, i also got the main under engine cross member as that bolts into the lower front wishbone mounts and will help align the towers in the back.better than a c900 pick-up any day...
I heard you were going to get the front end from a c900 already. That go to plan?

But if its got rwd theres gonna be the temptation to thrash it in 1st and 2nd Mega burnouts, etc. It would be a phenomenal setup though, great traction.
Oh come on, the only thing I can think of is at least you already have an 8v engine, work with that. Have you gotten a quote from dave baker for a 16v vs an 8v? It all means nothing till you go and do it.Si said:The other good thing i found out rescently is the tow capacity of my NG sensonic is 1600kg, meaning if the 8v was around a 1000-1100 kg i'd be able to tow it about, no worries about g'box failure, just stick it back on the trailer and rebuild when i get home, would prob. make life easier working on it as i could leave it permenantly parked on the trailer at home.
Philb, costs.... 1 cam vs 2, 8 lifters vs 16 which also need to be swapped from hydraulic to solid, 16 ports to be polished rather than 8, 8 springs to be doubled up rather than 16, at £300 a time for a cam, you can already see it making a fair difference!
Indeed...philb said:Exactly, if you have the back of the car sorted, I think the engine will be easy
