That's kewl man.

I dunno how long it will be around for as I'm even thinking about buying it off him once I finish paying for everything else I've gotten in the past week *laugh*

I'll keep you posted if he sells it or not.

You should join in on that bbs as it's a little more local to you and could be of some help.

Mark.


ps: the engine bay gets painted tonight (by me of course) and then engine is going in on saturday....she's almost there mate.

Re: OT: ALFIE this is for you mate

What's your engine of choice?
I have a plan to go Swift block / Sami head and Weber. Mainly because it bolts in and I can fit bolts cos i'm clever.
Welding etc. is something I have to pay for, and it's not often I get exactly what I have in mind.

Re: OT: ALFIE this is for you mate

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.

Re: OT: ALFIE this is for you mate

So you're staying with the zook carb?

I plan the swift block which is basically what you have now. Geoff beasley uses a Sami head with 1.6 ex valves for more revability. and a Weber.
Thought i'd do the same.
Oh yeah Greg P says Webers aint legal over there ?
Can use em here, this year anyway.
I have the Genie headers but wouldn't mind knowing the grind degrees for your cam, as I may send mine off for grinding when I do the motor work.
Bonne chance mon homme,
Alfie.

Re: OT: ALFIE this is for you mate

not sure about the webbers.....I'm sure you could put one on without anyone knowing.

DO NOT REGRIND YOUR EXISTING CAM. You are better off purchasing a new one or having one made from a fresh billet. Despite what people say it actually makes the zook engine run worse. I was originally going to do that to save $$$$ but soooooooo many people warned me against doing so.

The isky aint that expensive. My cam is a little more wilder than the isky dual purpose. that's why I have the torque and power in one. the GTI stuff helps with all that too.
