  1. I like that as well, lovely bit of work gone into that
  2. What I meant was the rs2000 used the 32/36 DGAV 👍
  3. What about mk1 Granada or should I say consul
  4. That was a classic Capri so not really the same as the mk1 Capri which Steve is talking about
  5. Absolutely no point strengthening the axle with 160bhp unless you will doing some of this lol we had a 90 right as we landed
  6. Don’t do either of those
  7. Did anyone see that REP101N was stolen the other night but luckily recovered the next day
  8. Actually nice to see a car get a few bits done rather than a full resto as it becomes a very usable car rather than something that you can’t take anywhere!
  9. Tbh you could buy a 3j one not heard any bad reviews and not bad money
  10. Look good nick what’s it like on the inner wings
  11. Couple of days work eh Ray a man of your calibre!
  12. Nothing wrong with the English axle, my mate has a 300bhp Cossie engine and English axle with LSD he has no issues
  13. Your final drive in the gearbox will be 1/1 no different to any other 4 speed with the 3.54 it will be much better my old cortina 1700 x/flow with 2000e box and 3.9 diff was excellent but the 2000e box has long first the T9 box has horrible first gear, you will need a quick shift but I personally don’t think it’s really a nice box to drive! My mexico has a 5 speed T9 which I’m going to remove and refit the original gearbox as it doesn’t make the car nice to drive
  14. Go and buy a 3.54 diff, I don’t think the 3.89 you will notice much difference and some new wheel bearings, put those in the rear axle get a decent ported cylinder head and maybe a mild/fast road cam with a twin choke Weber (usual stuff) this will give you a bit more revs for off the line and more power for the motorway speeds i wouldn’t recommend a T9 personally don’t think they are geared for what you need
  15. The only difference is the seal on the sump cork pre xflow or rubber xflow but I’m sure early xflow also use cork
  16. Nice looking Anglia, good luck with the sale
  17. Looks reasonably simple and think I’ll do this on my mgb conversion
