Post  Nitro on 16/04/12, 10:15 pm

was thinking it was about time i started to put on here a build thread from the start

got the car from andy for 650 ive wanted one for as long as i could remember!!!
came with one of his group a ecu chips, a stainless exhaust and apex springs.
first thing i hadto do was get some alloys! had shitty steels.




then started to gather parts together and this is where im at so far

piper fast road cams

occ racing adjustable cam gears
takata 3" 4 point harnesses

jdm spec rear lights thanks to jdog Wink

a few too many lotus eclat alloys lol

kn starmags (1970s rare alloys)

very nice 4branch manifold off typhoon

koni yellows and custom springs off typhoon

sard afpr and braided hose ready with fittings for custom fuelrail

fittings and catchtank ready for rockercover mod

d1spec wheel nuts and arp extended studs

garndi brace with 4th mount

some benen tow hooks

almost new rear calipers and braided lines

have more but no piks as of yet looking forward to geting the engine rebuilt my head ported and skimmed
also i have quite alot of welding now this is why it says keeping one alive!!










alot more cutting to do yet and finding more and more every time i look.

this is where im at soo far will have more piks soon of stripped engine proting work welding ect

I thought my Gti had a bad rust problem but not half as bad. Just finished all the welding on mine, new sills, new rear wheel arches, floor pan and front inner wings. Keep up the good work pal. Good too see that someone else is keeping one from the scrapyard.

Your gona have some problems with the mastercyl and itbs, have a look at my flickr, theres a couple of pics on there that will help, I reckon atm the throttle cable wheel is about where my vstacks end, that bit should clear but the filter/plate will hit, im gona use socks on mine until I sort out the cyl problem

Hi,

I think they are for TBs not carbs Gary.
I think inlet tube will be too long to fit in Swift.
If you use short runner like Gary's with bent trumpets which has fileter mount. It may work.
Or take out the servo....

Cheers

Hi,

You can do what Mini used to do.
Fit a remote servo which will assist front only.
Or you can build your right leg muscle!

Here is just a little update, cleaned inside of the car today took 2.5 carrier bags of sound deadening crap out and also took alk the excess crap out the engine bay.

Ive got a microteck mt4 ecu with handset now thanks to strider and i got myself a birthday present which is a new bucket seat :-) should be collecting yhe bottom end from the engine shop today and gonna give them my head to acid bath and wash the re assemble with my fast road cams.

Sad part about today is that ive sold all my eclat alloys :'( and got fuck all for them but oh well shit happens least my car had a engine now lol.
