Well after 14 months of ownership the bas**rd thing is still on axle stands
but I do have some updates
Last sunday I took a trip to Nottingham to pick up the 2.1 S16 engine that Doof had for sale on the 205GTiDrivers forum. It made more sense to sell the bits I had gathered for my own engine build to fund this ready built one. By the time I had finished selling parts I had covered the engine, a set of TD Pro 3's and a brand new 106 electric power steering pump
When Sandy Brown mapped the engine it made 180bhp+ atw on a GTi-6 Inlet manifold so I will be hoping for around 200bhp+ atw once I have fitted some throttle bodies
I have already sent off a inlet manifold to Mr Satchell and he hopes to have it ready by early next week. Once that arrives I shall place my order for the throttle bodies and other bits.
Of course once I started going down this route there was other parts I would need to sort out to get the full benefit of the setup, namely replacing the crap exhaust manifold which was fitted to the S16
As luck would have it Stuwee had just put his jenveys up for sale on the forum, knowing that his car had a 4-2-1 maniflow ex manifold fitted I pm'd him to see if it was available. A few days later it arrived
I will start updated this thread regularly now as soon as bits start arriving or parts are fitted. I only plan on doing one event this year due to work and thats in September so that gives me 5/6 months to pull my finger out.
During the last few months I have also picked up some bargains off eBay like a TRS Carbon roof vent for a whopping £45 delivered, the cheapest I can find new is £330
and my collection of TD alloys, I think thats a full house!
