hi guys and dolls. strange one here my brother is racing in british championship of nudge and spin on a short oval. rules state any car non injection/turbo max engine cc 1450.
he's looking at using pug 205xs or ax gt but i said use a nova 1.4.
so car found, rules also say engine mods allowed as long as outwardly it appears standard.
for this car have vx breakers to source all parts as want to keep costs down
1 Can we use the 1.6/1.8 block, does it differ in size outwardly from the 1.4? thus increase capacity cheaply.
2 best head to put on said block if can be used remembering must appear standard so have to use 1.4 dizzy/cam carrier.
3 what cam to fit in it from say bigger engine and what pulley for cam belt?
4 or just use the 1.4 have the head skimmed (if this poss by how much?) rejet twin weber carb k&n etc.
5 can exhaust manifold from larger engine be fitted to help with breathing?
so if anyone can help please do and any idea once mods done in what ever form roughly bhp output.
car will be running 14" wheels and the close ratio box.
this is a track car so noise/emissions not an issue
