Default The Final Result - With Just A Few Tweeks


Hi All

My build is just about complete but I do have a couple of mechanical issues.
I made up a full independent rear suspension that I posted pictures back in March 2013, coil overs all round. The ride is choppy, I had it corner balanced which has improved things but still room for improvement. I may go for a session with a suspension specialist.

The engine is modified with a gas flowed head, stronger valve springs, high torque camshaft, sports exhaust, triple dellortos, electronic ignition and facet fuel pump with regulator.

I have had a couple of sessions on a rolling road setting the engine up but again room for improvement. It appears to be running rich, though it's producing approximately 130bhp.

The car has covered approximately 450 miles and the rear U.J's on the drive shafts have failed. These were renewed during the course of the build. I am now having freelander ones fitted.

Hope you enjoy the photos.
