Hi Mike,

Sounds and looks good. Could you share the specs and some pictures of the engine (bay)?

Regards,

Charles

Its a 1600 cc engine with 2l cams, the carburettor is a 38mm weber down draught from a 3l v6 ford engine re jetted and works really well, the inlet manifold is modified to accept this.
The interesting thing is that I found that the MGF exhaust manifold was almost a perfect pattern match for the twin cam head so I bought two used manifolds and from all the bends made up the tube manifold, I bought a four into one collector off an internet auction site and the whole thing works a treat!!
