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.

After Market ECU

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

After Market ECU

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.

I need to decide what gearbox to use too??
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...

regs dictate period engine
What events / series are you competing in? Be careful with engine swaps in competition cars.

Problem is I’ve missed the season and now have 2 sprint cars Well done. Well, you'll have a choice of which one not to use next year... Presumably the Green machine is pretty much good to go, so you can use that as & when, which will give you a bit of enthusiam for working on the coupe (when this o...

What class can a GM engined 5a enter

The more developed a car is for competition, generally the worse it is for the road. In speed events, the Road-going class is a good compromise of both, but you won't be able to run in it with the GM engine.

Just decide what you want, a modernised road car, or a competition car. Or maybe one of each?

What class can a GM engined 5a enter

Aside from any other issues, the 5a is the only Scimitar that went over the 1000 production units p.a. So it's not eligible for SM anyway.

SSSC Specific 2018 Results

I did the spread sheet when I was Comp Sec, after we adopted the CM scoring. It was from scratch to suit the SSSC, not adopted from the CM sheets. It all worked at the time, but I think there have been a few changes over the years. I've not touched it since handing over the Comp Sec reigns. The reas...
