#91560 - 31st Jan 2006 10:10pm Ideas for a new car?
Anonymous
Unregistered


I'm looking for ideas on a new project.
I have built a 6R4 metro('s), a V8 powered triumph spitfire, V8 mini, 2.0 pug 106, 1000cc trike ect, ect....
The project must follow the same lines as before, (be mental) and must be road legal-able-ish.
Does anyone have any good ideas?
I need some help.
I will post pics of project and keep C.W. updated.
Also, anyone with scrap cars lying around and wanting to get rid of them, tell me about it.

I say twin engined beast.

MK1/2 Golf with 2xVR6 Engines, or

Corsa/Saxo/other small hatch with two stupidly big engines

Maybe a Nova with 2xC20LET's and nice fat turbos.

think

Ive got a standard old mini shell in the workshop that has been cut ready for a new chassis.
Liking the sound of a mid mounted V8 turbo. I have got a bare rover v8 block and a transaxle to match in the shop aswell, Crying out for a turbo or two.
Got any ideas on a turbo i could use?
Engine is a 3.5, so would like to use two if available.
All hands to the spanners!!!!!!!!!!!! thumbsup
