Good stuff Tom,
Wish I could report something similar after last weekend at what was supposed to be a club day. Started great with a 4th behind a twin turbo Lexus V8 powered VL Commodore, a 13B turbo powered Group C replica RX7, and a Triumph TR8 and being the fastest small saloon car running in what was supposed to be 'classics' ( as well as a p.b lap time ) however in race 2 I got taken out by some idiot in a Honda Civic totally locked up trying to outbrake the field going into turn 4 which is a tight hairpin. Nett result of that is one smashed up car with the passengers door pushed in along with the sill, l/f guard damaged as well as the rear quarter just under the bumper bar. Needless to say I am mega pissed off- had that little car over 26 years and done many race miles in it and never even come close to anything like this. Pretty soul destroying seeing what is a great little car looking all smashed up...
Nothing that time and money can't fix I guess.
Cheers
Dave

Shouldn't be that hard- what sort of draw through carb are you using?
Where have you set the timing?

Looking at replacing the original inner door weatherstrip rubbers as after 45 years they are starting to split and look a bit average.
I had a look on ebay and see that there are ones available ex Thailand but there seems to be a huge variation in cost.
I have a feeling that they are available from somewhere in Australia?
Can anybody help here or recommend a reputable supplier?
Cheers
Dave

Hi Tom,
I have only ever used high temperature RTV ( silicon ) and never had an issue. Just got to make sure the surfaces are true and thoroughly cleaned. Locktite 'Master Gasket' is also good on the inlet manifold.

To be fair D unless you are chasing the upper limits of what is possible going the turbo way is not that scary or time consuming.
About 26 years ago I had a A14 that had a simple 'J' made from steam pipe tubing coming off a factory exhaust manifold, along with a nice log type inlet manifold with individual injectors. I used the largest T2 which came off a 1800 SSS Bluebird and an intercooler off a Mitsi Starion.
At that stage the ignition was still points and i used a very early fuel only link computer.
All very basic BUT the combination was great and after adding another single Mitsi injector just after the throttle body ( I think from memory ) and taking the boost upto around 12psi in a 110 chassis the combination ran a quarter mile in 13.7 with a top speed of 107mph- remember this was 27 odd years ago.
Also worthwhile mentioning is that I used the 63A box which worked great.
The point to all this being that even a basic and simple turbo setup will deliver excellent results and there really is no need to start dropping bigger engines in ( and all the associated changes required to make the car handle properly again ) to get what Tom is after.
I can tell you that if I didn't have the SSS I would be definitely heading the A12 turbo way and if ever one wanted inspiration, you only have to look across the Tasman and see what Simon is achieving with that amazing little coupe.
Cheers
Dave

Hi Benny,
That's exactly what my Guru described. He also said it was much easier to do on the Webbers than to Dellortos. I don't suppose you would have any pictures of the same sort of mods to Dellortos?
Are they your Webbers?
Cheers
Dave
