Time for an update

Having bought the shell. The plan was to replace the original 12a with a race spec 12a half Bridgeport, complemented with a 51 IDA and beefed up rad and oil cooler.   (This work is being completed by Dwayne at Silver Fern Performance on Deeside.) Then put her through the MOT so I can bring her home for additional cosmetic mods.
As with all projects, there has been a number of unexpected turns along the way. Being of large build, I found I needed to replace the driver’s race seat for something I could actually fit in. Dwayne has spent a lot of frustrating hours trying to shoehorn a XL seat into a tiny FB space. Happy to say he has succeeded and I fit! Next up, the wheels needed to be replaced. Luckily Mark from this forum came to the rescue with a full set of original S3 wheels.


So the plan has progressed to the point where I was allowed to start her up this morning. Talk about loud!
 



Next Steps – Put her through the MOT then take her to the dyno for tuning. So I’m expecting the car to be on the road some time in November. Just in time for the winter........

Chris

Well it sailed through the mot. Also had an initial tune up on the dyno which Dean kindly  captured on Facebook

So I have 300 more miles of running in before she returns for the final tune

Nice :)
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Don't know yet. It was only a tuning run to set the carb. So the revs were kept under 7K. I wasn't at the dyno as the car went on a flatbed so only have the video to go off. Should be going back before Christmas and I will be driving it across myself so will be able to give you a full report then
