But more to whats been done. Full nut and bolt restoration, with the following mods:

Body/Chassis -

Adjustable lower arms
Adjustable tie rods
Minispares hi-los
Protech lowered alloy shocks
Solid mounted front subframe
13x7 Superlights

Engine - (engineering by Rob Walker)
MPi block bored to +20
21253 pistons with crowns increased to 10cc
Standard A+ rods
Standard crank
Standards flywheel
Bottom end balanced
Turbo Phil worked MPi head to 24cc chambers
SC 5 port kit (50mm inlet, D400 ecu, 660cc injectors)
GT1752 turbo
Custom chargecooler set up
Playmini 2" stainless exhaust
DSN upper engine stabilisers
Minispares lower engine stabilisers
Custom inner wing catch can

Drivetrain -
Gearbox rebuilt by Guessworks with windage tray

Verto performance clutch cover

Interior -
Reupholstered black/nickle interior, door cards and steering wheel

The whole idea was to do an OEM-ish exterior with a nice bit of power. The car has recently been mapped for a base map by Chris at EFI-Parts to allow me to run the engine in and get an MOT. For the little RPM i've used so far, it's nippy! Here's some pics!

How it was 18 months ago
