LMFAO@Spankee, the light eh. Thats not what my bank account says!
You keep teasing us by pretending to sell it, stop it you're gonna give me a coronary!!
I'm seriously considering the 16VT or just straight 16V TBs route, but only when I'm not a student, i.e. end of summer...I'd love to have a *gulp* Cossie...but two things kill that, a) gf living miles away and b) Mr Insurance.
On the subject of going pop, I am having a poll <in my head> of what will go first on my car, I'm undecided between turbo or piston rings...what do you reckon? Also, what sort of money would a '91 Courtenay 1.6 Turbo Nova fetch these days? 86k miles, met black, no rust <honestly> 16in Speedlines etc etc oh yeah, a few rattles <- adds character tho. 3 grand? 3.5?
Well worth going for the 16v turbo into a nova, lots of fun. I have a smaller alternator fitted at the front of my engine on a specially made bracket, if you need any more info on that or fitting the turbo engine, i.e wiring diagrams or the likes give me a shout. Did my conversion from 16v to 16v turbo over a weekend!!
I'd definitely like to see some piccies of the alternator, I'm surprised there's enough room at the front of the engine with the manifold arrangement - must be one of those micro alternators from a 3cyl Daihatsu Charade or something! <kidding of course>
One thing Ive noticed when these 16V conversions are done, people tend to chop out the slam panel - is it really that much of a nightmare to jack the front up and roll the engine in underneath?
It is a japanese alternator of some sort, a mate sorted it all out for me.
I had the slam panel cut already when the 16v conversion was done, makes working on the engine a lot easier, easier to put the radiator and everything in without it, I put the engine in from underneath when i did mine.
