  1. Just coughed up the deposit for a full EJ25 conversion.

    Fully rebuilt motor by Alan Jeffery - running aledgedly 198bhp.

    Have been out in a van with it fitted this morning, it's going to be very different :)

    The van was accelerating up hills like my Mercedes SL does!

    Going to pick it all up on Tuesday - lots of pictures to follow.

  7. This has been a topic of much debate. Perhaps the Vulcan to the Sky trust have something going spare.

  11. Wouldn't get me doing this ...... ha ha .....

    What other mods are you doing, anything to the brakes and suspension?
     
  12. That will come later. I hadn't planned on the expenditure so this is stretching me a bit.

    I figure that the current brakes will be fine if driven with sympathy - after all they have been slowing the van from 60 for the last 45 years. Perhaps though moving forward some fettling will occur - 964 brakes?

    Suspension is staying standard with the addition of a rear ARB - but will be fully refreshed, new shocks and looking for elusive new rear torsion bars.

  13. If I didn't have a very nice 2056 type 4 with twin IDF 40s I would be very tempted with the Subaru thing as I have temporarily run out of upgrades to do.

  14. Very nice; which gearbox are you using?
     
  15. Lots of upgrades you can do to the Type 4 yet. Turn it into a 2316cc. Or bigger.
     
  16. Having to stay with my 3 rib for now. Will be looking for a 6 rib to fettle.

  18. Come on then how much we looking at don't keep us in the dark
     
  19. How much what?
     
  20. I spent £300 on a M50 BMW engine
    From a wrecked low mileage E34 once
    But it seems people spend £7k now
    For a second hand Japanese engine for a volksie
    It's your money it's your choice
