    Post by mk1dub on Fri Aug 08, 2008 11:17 am

    after alot of thought and messing around with the idea of a g60 lump i have decided to go down a different route. i have fianally got chance to start work on her again at long last! the tax and mot ran out on it few months ago so i thought well lets make it rapid!

    so i have decided on as follows, **(deep breath)**

    mk2 git 1.8 16v lump thats been bored out to a 1.9, new pistons (forged) new rings, rods, complete new water pump, oil pump, slave shaft/seals/sprocket, port polished gasflowed head, bigger valves, ground back valve guids, knife edged inlets and outlets, head has been skimmed for max compression, kent cams, 4 branch manifold, inlet manifold to accept twin webber carbs DCOE 40's, over sized chocke rings, uprated carb jets, drilled and grooved brakes, brand new wilwood calipers, rebuilt gearbox with a nice twist in the ratios! Wink new full roll cage, car has been stripped, and im having a measure up for a pair of alliminuim bucket seats to keep the weight down.

    most of this is still on the side awaiting to be fitted lol, i have taken afew pics of whats been accouring and the progress of the project. i thought i would be easier if i added it to this thread so people could refresh their memorys of whats happend over that last year or so.

    right enough of me blabbing on, here are some pics, enjoy! Very Happy

    using a tecniuque called "flappy paper" i took the rough edges out form the porting
    my project 06082008213

    ploish time! only polish the outlets , dont do the inlets as you will cause condensing on the inlets and moisture will seep in your engine.
