My red B18FT powered 5
« on: 22:18, Mon 10 January 2011 »
Right about time i showed everyone my red 5 which i'm building for the drag strip.

It my old road car which i first fitted my old C1J lump too but then after cracking 2 liners in one go decided to fit a Volvo B18FT lump.
I've done alot of development on this engine so should be seeing good power and more inprtantly for me good time and speeds at Santa Pod.

These are the pics of its latest state before i pulled engine out again to do few more bits to engine bay and the engine, will look slightly different but be same basis as it is now.

Will keep this updated from time to time

To start with i'm aiming for 300bhp+ but over time and with abit more development i'm aiming for 10's at 130mph+ which will require around 400bhp

Cheers James, how do you change link anyway to get pic up as normal? Saves me keep asking to have it done

There's not much left to go in there to be honest, this will be as basic as it comes so won't require everything.

Going for the minimal look too so few things will be hidden away.
