Chassis modifications for roll cage fitment?

As a 5a driver / competitor Standard / Specialist roadgoing in the 5a is a mute point. I have attended sprints where no one cares, and others where it has been queried. I always carry the wikipedia print out showing total of cars built and this does satisfy although I don't go into numbers per year....

Accuspark Electronic Ignition Module

I now have non ballasted accuspark on my 5a (that was originally points & ballasted). I also got the coil for electronic ign, about £20.the set up has been great, very very reliable and happily drives my lpg setup which is reliant on a good spark. I’ll double check the wiring but it’s easy (once you...

Canems Twin fuel ECU turned up today. Despite initial misgivings around contactability went with Canems in the end, mainly down to on line feedback and actually what they can / have delivered for this sort of thing. Since placing the order they have been very helpful and the kit arrived today. Appea...

Blimey, so the air goes in 1, passing by sensors 6 and 5, turns 180 then goes up past whatever is 4, through the crossover valve and comes out 2 , passing by summit or udder 3.

Phil I've kept the integral oil cooler one, and thought the sump might help it. I took your advice and purchased a second hand but original coil bank. Arrived today and fitted. Do I need any other air ducting / snorkel infront of the throttle body to work with the rear plenum one. Will, Its a 5 spee...

OK. Great, A lot of information and I'm grateful. The sump thing was a query as a neighbour (motor bike / engine fantatic) thought the wide sump would make for good oil cooling but if it doesn't fit it doesn't fit. I do have the vectra sump purchased and ready To Fit. Re plenum. I don't have the fro...

Ok. 1) Has anyone tried to fit the engine in the chassis with the batwing sump still attached. It looks , from a oil cooling perspective, the sump could be useful but initial measurements show its very tight. I won’t have the Essex out until next week so just contemplating at the mo. 2) has anyone p...

One scored bore - what are my options?

I would suggest the advice of an experienced engine builder. 1) I had similar light scoring although hard to tell the depth, I tried to get away with it, physically rebuilt the engine, ran it, but it only lasted 100 miles. Probably unlucky but considered youre has already had work you don't want to ...

Mikey Bikeys attempt at sprinting - Car 1

As James said MG ZR 16" with 114 / 100 pcd adaptors To Be Fair, the clutch was the old plate I refitted to hopefully survive Curbs. It did, and a little bit more, so cant complain. I do think the photo shows shows the shape of the se5 very well. I was , admittedly , getting pretty bored with it but ...
