paint job will be a pain in the backside
I have the same worries with my red sprint. I'll prep that myself though.
I've been thinking... how would you like to start collecting parts for your project with your enginless sprint ?
You need to find the following if you want to squeeze all power from that engine:
1 - you need to find the 16v front bit of the crossmember - has clearace for the lower cams
2 - the exhaust manifolts of the 16v as they are different in diameter and have different angles on the flanges
3 - the non catalyst ecu - and wiring
4- the bosch air flow meter
5 - an oil pump and dizzy
6 - radiator of the 16v 33 - the one you have is too small even for the 1.5
7 - a fuel pump and a gas meter that has a 12mm out pipe isntead of the standard 8mm on your sprint - otherwise you will hear your fuel pump humming
8. a trottle cable and trottle SWITCH no position
Then its 1 night's work to finish it
