    Lookly Lookly.. - new project..

    Good Afternoon..

    Today has been a great day, I had a phone call from a mate i havent spoke to in a while who's a performance specalist..

    I was speaking to him a little while ago about changing the engine in my car, once i never herd back from him i settled with the idea of putting a 1800 in my mk4 astra..

    well it turns out that i've now changed my mind n everything is back on track for the original idea.. So today i acquired these.. (although they aren't the average )





    There's always room for improvment..
    Doesnt help that im just fussy..

    Not keen on the Gold manifold, but good choice of engine.

    ill keep you updated dont worry..

    ill give you a little info on the engine..

    It's been fully rebulit to race spec using re profiled cams, forged 2.2 pistons, bored out block to a 2.2, lighted and balanced, skimmed, ported and polished head, new vales and stems and more.. I'm not to keen on the Gold intlet im going to have that chromed along with the rocker cover and 4-2-1 manifold i have for it..

    The best part of it.. a fully rebuilt engine, that i paid nothing for
