Hi boys I think it´s time for a update...
My Roadster is real nice to drive, but got a little problems first it was the watertemp getting a bit to high for my nervs when driving in queue so I get a new bigger ally radiator. Then I got some problems with the oilpressure and got a little knocking sound for a second then it was coldstarted, so what to do???
I send Eric at JEm Engines a mail got a fair price for their Pinto premium plus shortblock, it´s bored out to 92mm and fully ballanced and it looks as new.
So out with old and in with the new.. I also changed the camshaft to a FR33 from Kent Cams.
I have only drived it for about 200km so I take it a bit easy so far
Here are some photos..






It´s really nice to see some old faces here again!!

That polished head and the recon block look lovely Janne, should be a good blast with with the new cams in to. Just noticed your previous pics and the car has a really good mean look to it, like you number plate - whenever you fly past these boy racers (assume you have them to) they will all be left with egg on their faces................

All the Best.........Andy

Hi boys, now it´s really time for a little uppdate.....
Last winter I uppgrade the frontbrakes with Willwood breaks and made new chromed front wishbones. I also bought new longer frontwings so I don´t get my face full of stones... the R888 picks up a lot of small stones and they hurt as ......
The new engine runs real good, I got 175hp from the Pinto
And her some pictures..

Nice brakes, what pads have you gone for as I've got the same ones ? I know Ashgabat runs minted 1144's on his car
