i posted a while back about MBE/DTA and which would be better,
the response i got was that emerald is beter and also i was told its cheaper to make a kit up myself than to go for an SBD kit or a kit from BAT motorsport.
well so far im thinking of going for the SBD kit and to get some other bits like omega 1650 pistons, a high lift cam kit, piper cam pulleys and a BTB 4 branch manifold.
as people said it was cheaper to buy the bodies then ignition unit seperate can anybody give me companys and prices who sell these as i was unable to get prices.
well for seperates yea, but not for the small kit they do.
but just for the thorrle bodies with no rail or anything its gonna be £460, then the manifold at £200, then the fuel rail.
cant see how its gonna be cheaper if i buy them all seperate. i was hoping jenvy did a kit with everything you need as they do have a pic with the kit on but no price?
what im saying is they have a pic of what i want but no price for it, basically if you add it all up seperately then add the cost of an ecu/loom its more than buying the kit from SBD which goes against what everybody told me before.
just get the tp180 summat from sbd if you can as its plug and play. no choosing ecu then towing the car to a garage to be mapped, its all in the box.
i paid £1900 for my parallel setup, plugged it in and drove. hasnt missed a beat for 11 thousand miles or so.
nah i can see them wanting a fair wack for that kit and i dont agree with some bits.
thev gone for wider valve springs which means you need to get the head machined to take them.
i reckon the 164kit with a few goodies i listed earlier. no point paying get the pistons pocketed when i can put slightly bigger pistons in already done for a little extra
cheaper to get the base kit and mod to your specs yeah, thats what i have done/am doing
its all the same sort of thing anyway, you gets the TBs and bolt them on, get used to the way they hurl the car down the road and then you plan mods to suit your driving style. its always gonna be cams (hydraulic or mechanical), pistons, headwork, dry sump it then go a bit bonkers with knife edge light cranks, steel rods, huge pistons, 320 degree cams, 8 injectors and lob it in a car weighing as much as your left testicle.
its all good fun and with TBs you can spread the cost of modifying over a few (errr thousand) years
the only problem there is mapping, but i am gonna have a shot myself (lmao)
