Re: Broom Yellow HLX

Sorry to just butt in but I must say, I so envy the fact that you can put any motor in your cars over there! Here we can only swap the motor for one with up to 20% more power and pretty much only if the manufacturer produced a version of the same model with a bigger engine. Which is why most people just turbocharge or port their engines, which seems to be considerably more pricey than just slipping a new one in (how would you turbocharge a NA 1.242 anyway?!?).

In any case, good luck with your car Liquid!

Sadly Adrian's was terminal structurally and my Bravo has caught up.

Still didn't stop some thieving twuntbag tying to steal my cat'.



I drove almost five hundred miles yesterday without incident and couldn't make it off my drive today.

It's not quite that straight forward. We have authorities who need to be appraised and bribed with leek soup.

I wouldn't bother fitting a turbo to the 1242cc 16V engine. It's pretty high compression and the valves don't like boost. If it were an 8V you would start with the Van Aaken style kit from the Cinquecento and modify it to fit.

Blimey! That's quite a hole in the floor!

That's why she's up for spares in the classifieds.
