I'm based in melbourne and am trying to get some info together beforing pulling apart a 1.7 twin carb for rebuild.
this guy with the 305bhp 8v, is he based in sydney? do you know what sort of mods he has made? does he have a business that is contactable or a webpage or anything?
The guy who supercharges the 16v, would he know anything about doing the 8v up?
orginally i was looking to try and get 170bhp max out of this engine... thats why i'm very interested in what mr 305bhp has done... is it naturally aspirated, coz i would like to keep mine N.A. any contacts in VIC or NSW that you think would be useful to my project would be much appreciated.. esp. if you know of any CHEAP 1.7L carb engines floating around....
Sorry, I'm still going through the leaning curve here... what does high lift cams mean, and where can i get more details about the grind spec?
Been looking at some different aftermarket multi-coil elec. ignition systems.. Don't know about lumenition????
Again, any info you have about pumping in excess of 170bhp out of the 1.7L would be great!!
Thanks guys, sorry if I sound like a pain, but it'll be worth it when I take you for a spin in the hottest 33 in Australia!! (ETA = at least 18 months!! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] )
