From the humble 1256 to meaty V8`s, swaps, rebuilds, tunning, etc.

yeah was looking at all the options and most require the rear axel to be change along with a fair few other bits which to i dont really have to space or facilities to do at the mo.
i think a fairly tuned 1256 should be fun, i know its not the best engine for £'s spent:bhp gained but it doesnt reqire all the other parts and doesnt have the haslte involved in fiting it either. the 12s would be a good option as well but to start chainging the rad an this and that when the really isnt a need to would be wasting money that i could put towards the 1256.

I reckon the small hassle of whipping up some mounts etc I'd whack a 1600 ford crossflow in there- loads of tuning parts and simular weight.
NZ desperately needs more immigration and fresh blood. Our eyes are getting far too close together!
