then i dropped a 2.8i engine from a capri (higher lift cam) into it and ran it on a carb to keep things easy. ran very strong and the 5 speed box is still hanging in there at 176000 miles.
pic is as it was during the shows,all emptied out and smoothed ready for whatever engine i wanted to drop in.see pic
then i bought a 3.9 rv8 but it was starting to cost a fortune in parts so i split it and sold off separatley.
then i sourced a turbo set up.....looked like it was from a river bed but ive spent the last couple of years sourceing the ness parts to fit it.
as it stands at the moment the old girl is up on ramps and the modified sump is nmow fitted,header tank relocated,pas pump re fitted,tubby manifold redrilled so it fits,new studs in block,oil galley feed fitted and a few more bits too.
im doing it on my own and have no experience with this kind of thing so im doing everything carefully.
what i should end up with (god and tools allowing) is a big single turbo janspeed style suck through turbo 2.8 v6.
i have no infor of any others so its all just guess work
ill get there though
pics below are the most recent ones.
when i took the car apart for the second time it was in a worse state than i thought and took nearly three years to take apart and rebuild.
if you search "ricks247" on youtube i made about 20 rebuild vids from the start to the finish,not very exciting though
