Its not modified in any way. It is exactly as made, and fits the 306. The only thing is that it doesn't have a lift up reverse mechanism. Hence the agricultural lever attached to it to work the lift up reverse cable! Although that was only bolted on so is removed from the gear lever now.

I think I actually stole that off our garden rotavator!


What version was it if you don't mind me asking? 106 or 205? I'm sure they're different.

Well I bought it for a 306. I would imagine it's similar to the 205 version. It is the same as the one in the Dixon race car thread.

I would imagine a 106 version is very different. If its the same as the kam racing site then the 106 version is a direct fit to the 106 tunnel etc.

It's still sat in my garage. I've been too busy trying to put the car together and working to sort things out as yet. I forget PM's sometimes so if so they're not being ignored just slip my mind. Once I've broken the back of my engine and box being in and sorted il sort things out.

Cheers, I presumed you'd just bought one off kam and found it fitted. Dont think I'll risk bodging a 205 one on without skilled assistance.

No to be fair I hadn't seen they sold them til quite a while after I got mine. And they don't stock a 306 one anyway. I got this direct off Colin and told him it was for a 306 etc. And he sorted it out for me.

Well I had a reasonably productive day by my recent standards.

I now have the engine and box fully in. Subframe on. Struts, hubs and wishbones all on. Obviously brakes etc too.

I re installed my standard gear lever and linkage setup. Reason being I couldn't be bothered to waste any more time on the damn cable setup to be honest. Id rather be able to get the car running, and no everything is going to work as it should.

With this gearbox anyway, the forward and back movement is greatly reduced anyway, and from the initial feel of things it wouldn't want to be any shorter. So bear in mind this is with a totally standard gear stick and then I made up some rose jointed links to go to the box. I have taken one back off now, but all seems to work nicely. So im pretty happy with how its coming together, and also knowing I can use bits I know il get to work!

Pictures of today so far.











And in case anyone notices from that last picture, I wont be heat wrapping the manifold. When I bought it I was warned off it by the guy who makes them, as he said that it will shorten the life of it, due to it making the surface 'crystalise' as he put it. So making sure I get my moneys worth I shall just leave it be!

I may be tempted to get my throttle bodies on it later.. But we shall see.

Well to be honest it's mainly a case of wanting to simplify everything and start with a fresh car.

When the chance of a far stiffer and stronger shell came up I thought it was worth having a go with. It's got a far better cage than before too. That's another main reason. The car is pretty quick. So if it all goes wrong, I want a fighting chance of walking away!

I'm hoping that even with the big cage, I can get the car pretty light. And put as few bits on it as possible to keep the weight down! I never weighed my previous one, but I'd like to hope that even with more roll cage this one can be lighter than before.

Didn't get a chance to do a great deal this weekend. Just chilling with my boy and watching some football mainly!

I did have a chance to start checking out if my seats will fit ok without to much modifying to my side mounts. looks like about 4 new holes drilled, and all should be good.





Not necessarily exactly where they will go. But I think its pretty close. I will probably lower my side down another hole and it will be good.

Am extremely pleased with how the gear shifting feels, even tho ive just been playing with it stationary so far!

Well this is the next step for the weekend. Fitting the new radiator. A nice height to get a nice bit of clearance for my airbox over the top.

Its a shorter 205 rad. Its about 50mm thick too.

The standard height 306 rad was abou an inch and a half too high to fit my airbox above, now that I have the new inlet manifold.

This gives me lots of spare room now. Means I can make a better channel for the air to get into the airbox.

ori rad for maxi is 32cm high, 42mm thick and 69cm long. So it is exact as is in 205 1.9 gti. Except hose inlet, it's streight in maxi and curved in 205.

Well not a lot has progressed too far recently. Getting a chance to do anything on my car, rather than running around after the girlfriend seems hard at the moment!

Anyway, I think I got my expansion tank plumbing sorted, the power steering pump officially in place, and the radiator should now be plumbed in too. Just need to add a few jubilee clips in the right places now!



The convenient length of the XSi top hose, with a certain amount each end cut off was perfect for my top hose. The BBM one wasn't long enough But that came in use elsewhere!



Modified the standard bottom rad hose to accommodate a different 90 degree bend to the radiator.



The expansion tank mounted in the appropriate place, and the hose into the engine in place also. Again, just needing hose clips to secure everything together.





I also managed to finally get my airbox to fit, with the satchell trumpets. Ended up being a proper pain I the arse though...





Im sure hopefully some time I will manage to get a whole day on the car, and not get interrupted to fix horseboxes and other cars!

Good question...!

It was a long while ago I bought them, and to be honest I cant remember what they are off! I think I remember reading that leads off a corsa fit tho...? But I could be totally wrong. Sorry I cant be more help on that one, but if someone else sees this, im sure they will kno.w
