nice little project there mate, so did the previous owner not bother with a skim or something? what a pikey if he didnt! tbh 180 is so cheap man thats why i love these little old cars co much, if it were a honda that would probably be gettin on for 400

iv decided not get the work done on my car this month due to the clutch deciding its had enough and becoming virtually impossible to get into 1st or reverse lol

so iv already bought an uprated clutch from steveL and am looking into a l/b flywheel courtesy of big jim racing, iv re booked my car in for the 16th of next month so i can have all the following done

fit new clutch and lightweight flywheel
fit new rebuilt t25/t2 .63 turbo (t28 pulsar wheel and cosworth comp housing)
fit fmic
fit 285 cam,vernier and springs
fit aem wideband kit and plasma gauges
fit new rebuilt carb jetted for 20psi and check fuelling is spot on

should make for a total different car once done

T28/t2.63 (cossie comp housing,t28 comp wheel,t28 shaft/turbine)@23psi
ported head
cat cams 285 cam,springs and vernier
bjr downpipe/elbow
turbo back 2.5" bore longlife system
tubular manifold
fully rejetted carb
Ramair Induction Kit
cosworth 2wd Intercooler
Lowered 50mm

Looking good matey, with the extra bits it will be very different when you get it back on the road.  The AEM AFR kit is a very good matey I use the same one and can't fault it.

Are you building it yourself or is Big Jim doing the work for you?

big jim is just doing the l/b flywheel for me then am taking it up to gt motorsport to get the work done, quick question is the clutch and flywheel an engine out job ? if so it makes it easier fit the cam at same time :)

yeah i reckon ill be rather impressed when its all set up 200bhp maybe?? we will wait and see

Yeah engine out matey, all though you can do them in the car it is a right bugger to do :)

200bhp Not sure on that turbo at it's part T2 I assume the rear side so that will be the restrictive part.
