I don't usually get much time to work on the car, hence the slow progress. I've usually got plenty of other stuff to do with quite a lot of time spent on the flowbench.
I've been messing with the SC 7 port head for the last 18 months or so and I'm in the process of building a custom manifold for it, all in all an improvement in flow at all lifts with a 3.5% gain at peak.
I also tested an 8 port a few months back for a mate. Makes for interesting time in the workshop.

Phil.

Mounted the battery in a more secure mount, better than the previous FG box. Started tidying up the lines running inside. I've got some nice rubber lined P-clips to finish them off and I need to mount the brake bias to.
With so much cut from the arches for the 14's I wasn't sure I'd get away with 10's, but after a bit of weighing up I think it will be ok as the Miglia arches come down at a much steeper angle it actually hides the wing/wheel gap well.

Digging through my old photobucket pictures and found this gem. It's one of the first pictures I ever took of it when it was first turbo'd. Circa 1999.

So with Christmas, a house extension and loads of other stuff out the way Iíve finally made a bit more progress.
Brake bias mounted, battery and brake lines secured etc
But the biggest step was removing the 14Ē wheels and fitting 10ís !! Iím kind of a bit sad to see the 14ís go as theyíve kinda become part of its trademark look, but with 22kg to be saved my mind was swayed !
Onward !

Donít make me change my mind! I was really torn in swapping the wheels as it is what made the car different from the rest and I will miss that, but I need to improve the handling as itís a real handful and the overall weight saving was a whopping 22kg.

So long as the yellow intercooler hoses and blue paint stay, itís instantly recognisable as Philís mini !
