 Re: Chickenhawk
What is the cover you have over the air filter,is it to keep the filter cleaner on dusty roads? Does it affect the performance? If not,I may need one,there is a lot of dust around here.If I clean the engine,in a week it is full of dust.

And she's wicked fast too. No, the engine swap wasn't too difficult. It came out of a 1980 HL-510 and never even hit the ground. I lifted it out and dropped it in the 1200, welded up some engine mounts, figured out a tranny mount, and started wiring and plumbing. You may notice that the radiator is moved forward a bit for clearance. That cover over the carb IS the air filter. It's made by a company called Piper Cross, out of England I believe. I wanted it for the direct inflow straight in to the carb. There is a 300ZX turbo hood scoop right above it. As for the strut bar, this one was done differently than the way I do it now. This one is made from a suspension pushrod off of a Swift DB-6 formula Continental that I cut in half and welded into a piece of conduit. There are Heim joints at both ends for adjustment. Way overkill. What I do now is cut a piece of conduit to the right length, mash the ends flat, drill holes and bolt her up. Cheap, easy and works just as well.

 Re: Chickenhawk
That is cool, I will make my own tower bar like that,I will show it once done. A pipe ,flaten both ends and bolt it in,previous "looks" red or yellow paint. Eventually I will swap an engine,I am between the CA18,the SR20,or a 13B,but later on,I want to enjoy my A15,so I am planning a single (or dual,if I can get around the brake booster problem) DCOE. Nice job!

Never had it on a proper chassis dyno, but figure at least 150hp and around 140 ft.lb of torque. It has a very stout cam, but makes GOBS of torque.

Depends on where you are. Here in the US it's easy, elsewhere maybe not...

Looks nice. It does not look too big,was it an easy instalation? I know it was not EASY,but I mean,any big problems or was it a workable swap? About your tower bar,is that easy to make? just a bar with eyes that fit a bolt on the tower? or is it have to be adjustable?
