Bone's XE Chevette

Looking nice and tidy mate. I love those wheels too. I'd prefer them with a little less rubber but that probably won't be practical for your use :lol:

Can we have a little bit of a write up and some more pictures on installation? I'm putting an XEV in my chevette at the moment and i'm particularly interested in the setup or your Header tank, cooling system under the intake and mounts. Any info or pics would be great.

Hello, I now have some nice and sticky185 /60/13 Yokahama ADVAN's on it as I have a track day next weekend to put it through it's paces as I have only just built the thing. As for a list of mods and bits I'll have to write it down when I have a bit more time.

Thanks Doive, The yellow car isn't mine a guy I know has just bought it.
I managed to do a bit of the track day at the weekend, well sort of. The car would only do about two and a half laps then coughed and spluttered back to the pits, leave it for five minutes then off out on the track for another play. We thought it was a fueling problem so we played with it for a bit and so on so fourth, then it died after about a couple of plays on track.I have had the car on the road for about a month now with no probs at all then bam ! I couldn't figure out what it was for a bit then for some reason I thought I would have a look in the glove box then I noticed a small bit of brown smoke coming out of the side of my MBE ignition unit , bingo found the problem.
The strange thing is the car didn't really smell like something was burning otherwise I thought I would have noticed it sooner the wiring harness it's self is fine and I have looked everywhere to find what had coursed the problem and still can't find anything. The guy at SBD said he had not heared of any such problems before with anyone else's MBE, so I have to send them my nicely melted circuit board and hope they can tell me the corse.
