Unfortunately after only a week of ownership the engine let go and is now out the car having a full rebuild and reconditioned/new gearbox. Annoyingly I paid a garage £500 to re shim the head and on inspection he just removed the shims. But once the block and head have been aqua blasted the build will begin. I was pretty pissed off but least its given me a project and It wont be coming back on the road until the shell is finished and bigger brakes fitted also.
Its going to be a slow project due to finances and time, my mates company Kernpoint will be building it as he has all the machining facilities through his work to do it properly.
Luckily the HKS pistons were not damaged and have been crack tested.
The shell will have complete overhaul whilst the lumps out and respray too. When Joe owned it before hes spent loads of money on it so its got most things, Just all need bringing together to make it.
Not after Mad power but want a reliable 400bhp, Mainly going to be used for track days and some road at weekends for shows etc.
Will update once the engine is being reassembled in the next few weeks. Will be looking for someone to rebuild my gearbox if anyone can get in contact.
