i've got a 90' convertible Capri, getting quite bored with how it looks and how it goes at the moment but still have a soft spot for it... Do u think it's worth hanging onto and working it...

1. Mine is the non- turbo 1.6Ltr D.O.H.C... what mods can me done to this engine?
2. Where on earth can i find places for bodykits for this car? it's been virtually impossible to find in or around Melbourne...

1. Drop the turbo engine in! That'd be the best mod you can do! As far as I know there the same as the Lase's, so TX3 turbo engine which is the same as the Mazda GTX and Familia engines I think are all straight fit in! They go hard too!
2. I've seen a Corvette look a like body kit once, was cool bananans, no idea were you find them though - tried bodykits.com.au it's like a directory of Aussie body kit companies!

cheers...

so you don't think bolt on turbo kits are the go? i've thought about straight drop in's as well. you reckon it'd be pushing it to cram in a tx5 engine?

yea, i'm going through all the sites now... but so far no luck...

Dont do a bolt on turbo because you will only be able to run low boost on a stock engine. The engine type you are looking for is the F6 mazda engine from memory. JDM got a twincam turbo version "I THINK". That would be an awsome conversion and may be a straight bolt in

would have a clue, maybe have a chat to some of tyhe boys on FordLaser.com some funky lasers on there and they should know more than me, they'll also help you find an engine if you decide to go that path!
