551 A race oddity

A bit more painting, I was going to spray the textured finish on the dash top, but no matter what I did, the stupid stuff would not come out the aerosol. So I rollered it with the same satin blue I've used everywhere else, it's not really got the texture I was after, but I can always come back to it...

A bit of a let down!

A couple of years ago, I had new tyres fitted to a car. I think it was 5 days later I hit something at the end of a motorway slip road that sliced through the side wall. That was annoying, I'd barely worn the moulding bobbles off...

I've got a pair of Princess front brake calipers, they'll match the Ambassador servo when you finally give in and accept one of the kind offers of parts...

551 A race oddity

I’ve been working on a few different bits, at various stages of completion. Most of it not very photo worthy, so I’ve got a step through of one of the little jobs. The facia was long-gone when I bought the car, but all I’m after is something light & tidy to hide the wiring. Some time ago, I made a l...

When in use it currently does 600 miles a week.
~30000 miles a year? Well fair play for using it for so many miles!

After Market ECU

I think I must be a fairly simple soul, I just don't get it, what are you trying to achieve? For an everyday driver, where you are covering lots of mileage, an LPG system has a payback, due to the fact that the fuel is cheaper, despite the initial required outlay on the conversion. I've done the sum...

LRP 335E Sprint Coupe

It's the same lever position as the box in Big Bob. The engine was moved back 8" in that. The lever was in a perfect position, but the drivers side exhaust had to run forward, before wrapping under the passenger floor.

The most cost effective route would surely be using the Omega ECU and don't bother with LPG.

I'd either book in to a rolling road that is affiliated with your chosen ECU. Or decide where you want it mapped & speak to them about what ECU's they are familier with. That may help inform your choice. For you, it might be helpful to find a rolling road that deals with LPG systems and speak to them.

LRP 335E Sprint Coupe

I've dropped you an email on gearboxes.

It wouldn't hurt to move the engine back a bit for weight distribution, seeing as you've already cut the bulkhead back already.

The T5 you already have, with a new bellhousing.
Or the one hanging off the end of a Ric Wood engine, that already has the right bell housing...
