what are your ideas....
ok, I have decided to go all out with the cortina this time, so I have a motor on the way, and am sticking with the 'loader( I know it'll be faster with an auto, but its originally a top loader cortina..
here's some specs...
-EFI crossflow with heaps of head work, 200 rods, big cam(3500-7500 quoted rpm range) balanced etc etc
-750 hp holset turbo
-front mount 'cooler
-big injectors, microtech, fuel system etc
-big clutch etc...
The aim is to make 250+rwkw... and I haven't done anything to the diff yet bar a brake upgrade...
so does the pick up points on the body need strengthening? and i know the trailing arms need boxing in... also the chassis? need bracing?
Also what about lockers? too hard on the car? or LSD? and ratios?
And any other little pointers that anyone has to share would be great... I think I know them inside out, but you never know lol
any help would be great!
ps I'll post some pics if youse want....
