SE6 Rebuild with BOB engine

Post by EngineerDave » Tue Feb 26, 2019 6:27 pm

Hello out there!? - I am (fairly ) recently underway with an SE6 rebuild project - currently the body is off & BOB engine is 'part fitted' - I understand that this conversion has been done before - it would be good to establish contact with some one who has successfully done this, to learn some pros & cons - is anyone out there?

thats a 12v Andy.

24v in the for sale section but Nigel at QRG is probably one of the most practiced still on the scene (and he said he wouldn’t do another one after the last :D )

I have experience of the BOB, but not of fitting one in a normal Scim.


What gearbox are you intending using? What ECU?

Gents, thanks for your responses - Current plan is to use the Ford brain & Scorpio auto box; we are aiming to get the engine running in the chassis (it is already located) & hopefully put the loom on a diet, then 'fit' the body
