Re: Van with a difference!!!.

Ok I'll spill my idea

Basiclly, you know that lovely 166 I have? I originally bought it to take out the engine and put it in the Bravo... But I promptly fell in love with that car, the things cars do to people! so that idea is out of the question...

But I did more research and found this:

Then this

And I just can't get the sound of that turbo out of my head, the spool up... Or the idea of a T-Spark van out of my head either

When funds permit and I ditch more cars, that's what I'm aiming for, a T-Spark van then work from there. 156's here are peanuts once they're a 2.0 due to high-ish road tax

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

Make sure you get a pre 00 156 for the cable throttle and also the sound off the cf2 setup is very addictive say bye bye to balancing shaft belt :P it will be very expensive to get the twinny to take a turbo tho .
It would be a easier swap from a 145 or 146 ti .

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

yes, get a bit of alfa under the bonnet, TS go very cheap, its so easy to buy a decent running one(shame of course), but for a cheap engine conversion its the way to go

ooooh or a 2.4 jtd in the bravo now that would be silly quick

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

Bump

Probably my last mod as my daily driver: stupidly bright and powerful full beams

They're yellow


Very hard to capture just how bright these bulbs are


They light everything up

Will miss it terribly as my daily...

Re: Van with a difference!!!.

People, the end of daily use has come. It's been an eventful journey, full of fun memories. Never a dull moment. And never failed to put a silly grin on my face

Also used for its intended purpose, it carried various goods throughout the last year and a half, usually loaded to capacity. Tyres, coal, toilets it's carried them without breaking into a sweat

But it's now going to get a well earned rest. I will miss it dearly as a daily driver! Especially in the corners, out handled by a van springs to mind

Fear not, I will return with it here. Hopefully with something a small bit bigger under the bonnet

For now, for not looking hard enough, here is the replacement and my daily hack...


Who knows what the next update will entail!!!

So keep watching people... You never know when I'll return
