Project Tak is being Started Again!

Hey All,

Looks like Project Tak is being started and reloaded again!


Well after driving around the car for the last 2 weeks ive noticed that the motor is well..... stuffed LOL

Massive Blowby (as MADNC_8 saw), Big End knock and not to mention blows oil out the dipstick and well... everywhere. So A new motor is in place. Hopefully this will be fitted saturday with a Big Thanks to Jason for comming to fit it and JOHN_XR6 for the building of the motor (if it is finished in time ). Its a Stock 4.0 with EF style cam whith slightly higher Comp (well i asked for XR spec 9:0:1 ) Unfortunatly the CFi will have to say for the mean time as I still need the MPFI intake manifold and Wiring loom + Fuel Rail and all the $$$ has gone into the motor. Anyone got one?

Also Monday and Tuesday Im intenting on fitting the Sprint Kit and painting it all up. Im hoping to get it all fitted and painted by GOR which would rock with a new motor and all!

Ill post up some pics when its Done.

Re: Project Tak is being Started Again!

It's all to do with some cartoon called "Initial D"...

The main character's name was "Tak", i think...



Cheers,
Dave
