    Nice one ...is the crossmember bolted in or are you checking alignment... igot a wc crossmember and mounts...but the mounts dont fit the pinto ...so they are either mixed pinto + crossfow or something else...i will cross that bridge when i get there..

    looks like it will all fit...

    I like the tie bar on the inner strut....does it tie in with the roll cage ..
    Cheers mark

    Hey Mate,

    X-Member is bolted in using the Chassis rail sleeves so it bolted in no probs




    The tie bar goes to the plate in the foot well and cross braced to the hoop.

    Very nice...all coming together nicely..i have a problem with the strutt brace..there is no room to fix on the passenger side strut top because the velocity stacks from the engine are in the way...so been looking at alternatives ...may be come lower then up...

    cheers mark

    You could use the oval design or maybe move it further forward

    Something like this could work too

    Its wrinkle paint from VHT. The rocker cover was done in the same but it looks shit so will need to be done again. It's best baked in the over afterwards but last one I did ruined the oven for 2 weeks and the Mrs was not happy at all.....Lol

    Has the roof vent turn up so here's a few pics. Mine is fiberglass not carbon as in the pic but same design

    Exciting day with a disappointing end

    Got the engine on the dyno and did the run in with everything going great.

    The engine then hit a hole around 6,500 and power dropped off massively and we couldn't work it out. We tried engine timing, jetting changes, cam timing, new exhaust system even but nothing made an differences with different results happening on each run.

    In the end it refused to start and after lots of head scratching the culprit ended up being the hall effect sensor in the dizzy so we packed up and hopefully we can get it sorted out on Tuesday.

    We got 180hp out of it so far so that's a good start but there should be a bit more in it hopefully

    Here's a few vids of the running in and then a power run. It reckon is sounds great

    Cheers

    Matt

    Running it in



    Power run

    Given the blue MK1 in the background I take it Warren is building your engine?

    180hp is definitely a good start.
