Awesome 5.. I love Ph1's

Glad to see the frontie living on, I can't take any glory for the frontie. I bought it off RTOC with a T25, when I had it was turbo back.

I see the vids already been posted. It popped and banged due to a timing problem. it used to spit huge flames :lol:





PS.. Please don't put lensos on it :wink:

What's the story with the red R5.

It looks a little mental.  8)

There is a build thread on RTOC. I bought it as formula 1000 rally car on ebay. before that it was a europarts drag car. I then fitted the Willaims engine, wheels, Alpha Weber ITB's and tidied it up alittle. sadly I ran out of money, never finished it and broke it to fund the rocco.

I have fitted a GTT carb and T25 hybrid to a Polo G40 engine and fitted it in my Mk1 scirocco,

The car ran ok but it has always smellt like its over fueling abit, just of late its started doing it really bad and idling lumpy. I think the carb needs a rebuild tbh. but that brings me to the question of jets.

My engine size is 1272cc do you think it would be worth running smaller than a 1.7 jet? I will be running 1 bar of boost.

Cheers

PS.. I will be buying a wideband to set it up this time round :lol:
