Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

Ok will look into the new sprintex on a 3.0.

Actually Jim told me to just get a 1.8T So if anyone sees a 1.8T on ebay let me know. Failing that, a 2.0T with Westwood liners, xtreme tuning manifolds.

Supercharged 3.0 24V

Has anyone here built a rotrex supercharged 24v? Thinking of replacing my 3.2 with a 3.0 SC. Not looking for some crazy horsepower figures, maybe 350 bhp? Don't want to re-invent the wheel if someone already has the right piston design. Actually, Steve in Dorset, you've done it, but with a positive ...

Re: Hello from relocation to UK with my two South African GTV6's

Nice ride height Kev, I have the 27mm so I’ve been dreading to lower mine any at all, just too much work. About 1.5 finger gap. I think George’s car has no gap at all?

Good job keeping MD in his place, he needs to realize that triple digits are only good on the speedometer and not on his age. :D

Re: Wheels

I like the team Dynamics wheels on George’s 75 but TD seems to no longer be producing at the same volume levels and definitely do not ship to the US anymore.

Re: New book?

With the new book and info on the 1.8 Turbo, I wonder if I should start collecting parts for a 2.0 turbo. No good 1.8 engine over here. All I need are new liners and pistons. 2.0L engines are worth almost nothing over here. Anyone want to buy a 3.2 24V ? :mrgreen: But let's see what's in the book fi...

Re: 3” exhaust

Every exhaust shop there seem to have a mandrel bender. Not here.

It’s a track car with a 3.2 24V NA, 275 bhp, possible supercharger next. AlanQ4 here, has a 3” system on a modified 3.0 24V and it works well. Lots of K24 conversions also went from 2.5” to 3” system with good gains.

Re: 3” exhaust

Haha ok always good advice from you. Just so you know Jim is quite satisfied with…..drum roll….2.5” ….. :mrgreen: hey I’m talking about exhaust here… Anyway I’ve fabbed my exhaust 3” after the header secondaries merge, but shrinks back down to 2.5” as I tried the 3” v-band clamp setup and it wouldn’...

3” exhaust

Has anyone fabricated a 3” exhaust system on the 75? I tried to mock up a 3” system with bends and straight sections around the dedion subframe, and over the half-shafts, but the space around there is very tight. I’m thinking of keeping my 2.5” exhaust system for now but if anyone has already done s...

Re: South Africa - 1982 GTV6 2.5 Restoration (50/100)

This build is awesome, I love parts coating. Need to learn how to do it properly, painting just won't do.

MD,

Well he does have the Midas touch. So anything he touches turns to gold, so by now, most of the vital parts are probably already coated in gold :mrgreen:

Re: Fitting an electrical brake vacuum pump

Nice. I’ve never seen this setup, would this eliminate the need for the servo?

I heard MD has vacuum pumps too……

Re: Engine smoking

Brian’s probably right. If it’s the rings, then you should see constant blue smoke.

Re: Crank case ventilation and negative pressure

Which do you recommend? Some of the stuff I see for sale don't have the right mechanical design to separate oil from the air and they're super expensive. Some of the industrial oil separators I see online should work well, but they need to be adapted to the engine bay.
