My Sud TI project about to begin. Input welcome
I am abut to begin a makeover of a 1982 sud ti. It is a bit of a mess right now, i bought it as an unfinished prject, allready mostly stripped down. Luckely i did a sud when i was 16 with my dad, and have had another sud and a sprint since, so have a fair idea of what goes where.
I have been sourcing parts to reco the 1.5, but it was missing the twin carbs. Then a couple of days ago, i got a bit of luck and purchased a 1.7 fuel injected unit with all items to do the conversion on ebay. That is the bit that i am not sure on any input would be very helpful. I have decided to go with the injection not carbs, for reliability and coupled to the 1.5 box, will b e plenty quick enough = i have never been into drag racing, i luve the sud becasu of its surefooted nature in bends.....FUN.
I am also looking at squeezing a 147 leather seat set in, the cars are only about 10cm different in width, so if the 147 panels are thicker, and therefore the seats not a lot wider, i hope to squeze them in. (the car cam minus seats when i bought it).
I am keeping the 1.5 gearbox and inboards (something i always liked about suds).
Anyway i will be posting pics soon before i start and throughout the project, hope it inspires others to "save a sud".
