I keep following this thread with great interest! So please keep these updates comming.

Just recently I decided to build a track day car, but I will start off with wheight reduction, GAZ Gold coil overs with Baker BM adjustable topmounts, and rear axle with Xsara torsion bars.

I am pretty sure my girlfriend would not fully agree on updates like yours :p


Definitely
Good luck
She doesn’t know of all of it but most of it LOL
Thank you Thumbs up

Totally agree with you regards the next thing down the line to break, I'm a bit of a fan of being able to get stuff fairly easily if it does break, and I guess if it keeps breaking then I'll look at alternatives!

When you say 2.0 and 300bhp is that genuine 2.0 or will it be more like 2.3? Be interested in the rebuild hours involved as the only other ones I've seen are the maxi engines which could only do about 20 hours running before needing a rebuild. Even pug1off said there's wouldn't do half a season before needing a rebuild. This seems to be mostly down to the revs required to get to 300, the 2.0s I've seen are knocking on for 10k rpm with the larger capacity ones generally under 9k, just...


100% 2.0L...my engine at mo is capped at 10,000 it was 12.. genuine 286....but Sandy capped it RPM ..don’t forget Colin’s is 298 now and he’s raced it all season ..ok up hills once not lap after lap but massively reliable ...

Sandy has assured me 300hp and many seasons of use on the track ....can’t speak for Pug1off ...
