    turbo technics capri 270 ftlb torque

    just had another session at track and road. Had a new turbo put on and a few bits since the last one. Was previously 193bhp and 215ftlb torque. Gone up a bit now

    Whats your spec on that engine? What gearbox are you using? I'm well impressed!

    One day people will stop asking 'Is that bit of your car supposed to be hanging off/leaking/on fire like that?'

    Its had a lightened and balanced bottom end with pistons machined to drop compression ratio, but not steel crank or anything. Standard heads. Rebuilt T3 turbo and amal valve which can switch level of boost. Cossie 2wd intercooler.

    fuelling right on the limit though due to crappy k jetronic.

    still on a type 9.................so cossie t5 will go in soon

    it is so smooth on the power, like surfing a massive wave that just keeps on going
