My engine of choice is a 1.3 standard bore bottom end which was originally built to take a supercharger but never got used. It has a GTI crank and Stud Girldes and we swapped the low compression pistons out for high compression ones.
The head has been shaved a little bit.
Custom Dual purpose cam (much like the isky), dual spring retainers, port 'n' polish inlet/outlet.
The whole lot has been totally reconditioned to spec, FULLY balanced (fly wheel, clutch, pulleys, internals etc etc), reconditioned carby with upsized jets (2x).
I already have tune length Genie Extractors. The engine has been tickled in every imaginable way.
All in all she'll be a little pocket rocket with tonnes of bottom end torque (a don't any of you try and tell me it won't have both as I know for a FACT it does). I would have gone 1.6 EFI but I have accrued too many points with my insurer with all my other mods(disc brake rear end, 2" body lift, 3" springs, cage, tyres, GTI seats, racing harnesses)and a total engine swap would put me over the limit and they wouldn't be able to insure me. At least this way I have a great engine that is way beyond stock but looks stock, so I don't have to tell them about it
I've been working on some very fancy "through-glow (c)" dash instruments for both sorts of sierra dash, swift GTI series 1 and 2, and 2 different Vitara dashes. Once they are done I'll send you pics. I can put any pattern I want on the instrument face and make it glow at night. hopefully the demand wil be huge so I can make it a little side business of the two different jobs I already have.
Slowly building a beast.
Need some custom graphic/new media design done?
