well I am one of them people that like to play with cars
and engines making them go faster ect ect :shock:
Image
after a few beer's I got my tools out 8)
Image
2 hours latter in the workshop
Image
Image
Image
then :P
Image
pistons an rods arrow rods
Image
crank back from frozensolid
Image
Block was also done
Image
Image
all build up with a new gearbox and atb diff fitted
Image
Image
Image
started making it flow more air std
Image
Image
one been made bigger
Image
now speed sorted out lets make it slow down faster
330mm x32mm with 4 pot's
Image
Image
then I found I could fit a 345mm x30mm kit under 17's so this is just as good for fast road use
as my Alcon 6 pot 343mm kit and less then 50% of the cost
rears have also been changed to vented rears at 292mm with custom made plates
a bit of cnc work sorted
Image
Image
new vs old
Image
Image
Image
Image
I do get some help in the workshop but he sleeps a lot
Image
next stage is to fit a LPG kit to the car
started by painting the filler cap
Image
and a shopping list like a boy racer has
Image
I will do a update when i get the rest of the lpg stuff fitted

I will move some stuff around when the new inlet manifold is made as it will free up some space at the rear of the engine
when the car was up in the air it has had some R&D done to the rear bush in the beam on the back
gone is all the Rubber :lol: and in its place a Block of steel with critical bearing

got a few bits to fit to the car again
a sump plate off a police car
Image
Image
I changed the trim around in the car from part to full leather
so i needed to move the lpg switch
Image
you would not know it was lpg now sitting in the car
Image
new seats
Image
Image
the front ARB was changed from 21mm to 24mm
Image
I am also playing around with the Dash looking to change the clock's from white to Black with 4 led's at the bottom of the fuel gauge for lpg or i mights just leave the switch in its new home under the ash tray
I removed the yellow filter on the card with sand paper now they light up with led's in blue or red not made my mind up yet
Image
Image
Image

I also had a small water leak inside the car from the aircon drain getting blocked :lol:
and some of the lpg stuff is in the way to get to it from above in the engine bay its hard at the best of time so
think like the A Team
use some pipe work and a airline to blow the @!## out jobs a good one
vauxhall book time to fix it 12 hours my way 30 mins

I'd love to do some of those type mods to the engine on my Alfa. I'm sure 200bhp can be near doubled on a 3.0 V6. Then maybe mine will go off the clock too.
