I was used to revving the knackers off it, a total reverse now with peak torque being 200lbft at 4500rpm! Its like driving a diesel...
Is it worth thinking about a different diff ratio then? Seemed to be a lot of gear changes.


Completely agree about the dash, looks great :)

Can anyone suggest how best I get some open headers for this engine. Do I buy pipes and bend them, buy ones already bent and weld them to the flanges or do I get them custom made. Phil adapted vectra ones and Lozz made open headers. I’m sure the engine will benefit from open headers, especially now...

Can I get a piston out with the engine in situ?

I’ve done it a few times, not normally through choice I might add

I tend to do that in situe at the “let’s asses what we’ve got here stage”

I modify the alternator so it can swing and tension the belt.

Most motor factors are happy to work off belt length. The original has the partial part number to denote correct rib profile and tooth count.

A gloss black bonnet might be an OK contrast?

Anyways, I agree. Body colour bonnet would look very smart.

Are you sure you will do enough miles to make the LPG system worthwile?

Mikey does about 800 miles per week in his GTE, also he seems to compete at events that are at least two days drive away :D :roll:
