Re: CVH Turbo into SS1?

For a manifold I'm using a focus mk1 zetec exhaust manifold and an frst inlet. Pictures will follow when i have enough for a...

Re: Calling iPad owners..

Hi Phil
If you're really set on using apple my advice would be always go for current generation hardware. Apple products suffer from built in obsolescence far more than any other manufacturer imho. I escaped from the clutches of apple several generations ago for this reason alone.

It depends what you are sending too. Hermies have a long list of things they don't like.

Re: Reviver's Scimitars

Fair play to you that you stuck with it. I was looking at buying that car just before you bought it. Glad I didn't as it looks like a real money pit. Also well done on that cross member, its horrible welding on your back.

Re: choughton's SS1 project

In other somewhat related musings, does anyone out there have a plug for an EEC IV ecu? Its the 60 pin one, not the 104 pin one.

Re: choughton's SS1 project

Jim: As far as I can tell exhaust routing should be relatively straightforward (famous last words). I've not made my mind up about the crossmember yet, as it seems like something that could be left till last. Phil: Yup, focus manifold upside down. Making the flanges for the turbo and cylinder head t...

Re: choughton's SS1 project

So today was one of those really exciting days :). The mock up of the turbo cvh went pretty well as far as I can tell and a bit of fabrication work here and there will hopefully have it running soon. The engine is a miss match of ford, subaru and rover parts http://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee425...

Re: Ideas on this Please NON Scimitar

As above, I'd go with crank sensor straight away. A friendly garage will be able to test it for you using a multimeter when you find it :). Although its certainly not the only thing it could be.

Re: 5a rollover bar - what metal to mend rusted tube?

I thought the original roll-over bar was seamed tube :w. Certainly looked like it when I welded the se6a up.

Re: mt75 gearbox

An MCT75 with a type 9 bellhousing would work but they are rare. I could see myself modifying the cologne bellhousing to move the starter position and making an adaptor plate for your application. I'd be too worried about breaking an rx8 box in autotest.

Re: mt75 gearbox

For autotest the MT75 may be your best bet. You need a sierra DOHC gearbox for the rear casing, a sierra v6 gearbox for the bellhousing and a different prop shaft . The DOHC comes with a 3 bolt output flange but the 4 bolt output flange from a transit MT75 bolts up in order to save on the rotationa...

Re: Identify the engine components...

Yeah a special piston is needed. I'm a little weary of the 1.8 rods though. I'm not sure id want them in a forced induction engine. I've never found out what piston was needed but was told at some point a rover one could be used. It should make a 1900cc engine.
