Hello there
I'm looking for the twin carb manifold set up if anyone has one for sale or might know where I can find any information would be great. I'm also looking for any other performance and sport and rally parts
Many thanks
Aidan

I keep the opening post updated; a flurry of more recent posts has been removed by a mod but for reasons unknown to me some old posts have remained.

A somewhat general question, but relevant I hope. Is it worth finding a core engine t build as a "good performer" for down the track? If so, any suggestions for the core, then buy lots off you Melle.

All V4 blocks are identical, bar the difference between the "early" open deck blocks and the later, more common, closed deck engines and their respective types of heads. For a "performance" engine you want a closed deck block to start with and the type of inlet manifold, crank, pistons, camshaft, valves etc. that fit your aspirations/ wallet. I have loads of blocks in my workshop in NL, but you can find one closer to home easily enough.

It's easy/ cheap enough to build a very nice road engine, it's the last bhp you need deep pockets for. I would only ever build a race/ rally engine if I would use it in anger, for (spirited) road use "fast" cams, big valves etc. are a waste of money in my opinion. Each to their own though!

Melle, I thought you could pen this so that newbies like me stop asking dumb questions :)

Melle, I have just spent the last hour using the search to see what I can find, and to be honest I haven't come up with much. Please see new thread as feel I have messed Aidans' one enough.
