Cheers thanks for the comments guys, yeah dad and i have put heaps of work into her and its still not finished, essentially its only a stock rebuilt motor, not oversized yet, and only has a mild re-ground cam in it, but the power to weight is unbelievable!!

smoke_rubber: yep stock manifold still looking for some old extractors cause we'll have to cut them up to make them fit and this was put on just to get her running and useable for now. No quarter mile times yet but she would be pretty good im guessing :D

Disco Frank: Yeah it needs a good cam only a re-ground one at the moment (plan is to put a BA turbo motor in later on)

Skick: yeah no room for a fan aye!, but theres a blow through thermo fan in front of the radiator, which we can turn on and off from in the car.

Elwood blues: No dynoo or strip use yet only 2 hillclimbs and basically still running the motor in its as quick already as our old 202 race motor!, and this one basically stock!!

we were going injected setup, cause the motor is an injected one but since we had the tripple webers from our old race motor laying around we thought why not!, looks and sounds awesome!!
