I want one - does that count?
At the end of the day, it\'s meant to be fun - not a political movement! :burnout

Hi Dave,

I have seen some pictures of the white Cosmo, but can\'t find them now.

Do have any links to pictures or more information?

Engine build No is A476. The housings have the Mazda Logo painted Black without a No, which I believe means its had a factory rebuild. Is that correct Dave (DMRH)?

No idea on weight Kev, but with engine and gearbox out I would have to start trimming metalwork to reduce anymore.

Going to tear down motor to inspect and fit FD exhaust sleeves, need to have a think about what to do porting wise.

How\'s you car at the moment, still having ignition issues?

No ignitions fine it all came together eventually. Making good power no idea of figures though but the brakes need upgrading again to cope. They\'ll be another step up with the engine this winter but i want it finished a lot earlier this time, i don\'t plan on waiting for parts all year so orders are going in early this time.

Motor now stripped down ready to clean and inspect. Judging by rotor gasket seals and lack of carbon looks like fairly recent rebuild. surprised to see 3 piece apex seals though.
