you'll need a budget of around 2k, for a 'proper' TB installation - and yes, a good manifold (SBD does a good one for under £200) and a minimum of a 2.25 system is needed, that'll get you 200bhp on an XE for instance.
despite the fact i want to mod a car .... i'm still trying to simplify a few things ......... no turbo to worry about(also no lagg) ...... and only 2 drive wheels to worry about ..... although a 4x4 is tempting
Originally posted by Gary there's a lot to be said for a simple car, with a relatively simple engine setup - I don't think I've paid a penny to anyone else in the last 10 years to keep mine on the road
You car's been on the road?
*this was a tiny dig in the most light hearted sense, since I couldn't resist and it is in no way meant to be incitement to riot or argument, full apologies forthwith*
Originally said by Gary 2) DBMIIY - Doing, breaking, mending and improving it yourself - try it sometime for sheer satisfaction -
After some cash, imagination, hard graft, mistakes, more cash, blood and sweat, a car becomes yours
- your creation alone, no longer just another mass produced vehicle which you simply pay to drive.
The driver that thinks they gain anything other than mere glances by simply being at the wheel of such
a car is sadly mistaken - I'd much rather be driving my down to earth but highly modded car while you
wonder just how the hell I managed to get past - and no, I don't care that your next glimpse of me might
be in a layby with the bonnet up - I'll have the bigger grin, every time.
