manta box and other random 2.0 conversion questions

Postby reader » 01 Feb 2007, 20:14

Does a manta gte box fit the xe engine

How do you attach the manta axle to the car. Any pictures?

What dizzy do i need to use with the xe lump it will be run on R1 carbs?

Do escort rear turrets fit?

Can i use the standard fuel tank?

Cheers peeps

Nik

No you need to use the manta 1.8 box

The same way a standard one does bolts straight on with abit of modding to the panard rod.

use the manta 1.8 dizzy setup modified to run off the xe cam pulley or megajolt

yes you can make anything fit with enough skill

yes if your running carbs otherwise it will need modifying to include a return

i believe not - you need the 1.8 version

yes loads but you'll have to search. basically it bolts up the same, you may have to swap the panhard rod over on the axle

manta 1.8 is popular, but wouldn't some form of ecu be better - megajolt perhaps

i think it's been done, but Tim can sell you chevette ones

for carbs yes, you'll need a fuel pump that can deliver enough fuel and a pressure regulator would be a good idea. you will have limited range as you will be using a fair bit more fuel

R1 has throttle bodies does it not? as opposed to carbs i mean. as in actual chokes instead of barrell slides and injectors as opposed to jets.

mines do anyway, lol. and this means the standard fuel system will need upgrading :-

as mentioned the tank can be used and needs a return. then you will need the following parts

lift pump
swirl pot
high pressure pump
pressure regulator

the parts go in the fuel system in that order starting from the tank and going to the enigne

Danged link worked a few hours ago - won't now. Reason I believe they're carbies is there appear to be diaphrams on top of the bodies.

The Yamaha (Keihin) Throttle bodies have Diaphrams as well to soften the response and make them feel like a carbed bike :wink:

Works very well too :wink:

aye not a bad price. watching a couple other stes they all seem to go for roughly the same TBH. when you consider that and the 260 quid for a megasquirt ecu, its a damn cheap way to get 20 or 30 brake :D
