she's gone now
sold her to a guy in scotland due to change in cirumstances...needed something more sensible, yet for some reason im haf way through buildin a Carlton drift car! oops! lol
cav GSI's are nice motors, but a bit too heavy if you ask me, they never quite felt as raw as a mk2 GTE, and definately not a corsa/nova converted!
Cav turbo 4x4.....now theres a motor! lol
The good old Mk2 GTE's were stunningly quick even by todays standards. I guess they are much lighter than the modern cars. The closest I got to owning one was a 1.3 GLE MK2 but I still loved it although it rusted away under me.
What about dropping the newer 3.2 V6 rather than the older 3.0 staright 6? I'm not sure of corse weather the mounts and gearbox would be ok but surly that would make a nicer drift car having all that extra torque? Sounds a good project anyway mate
to be honest i wouldnt bother tuning it! im halfway through stripping the carlton to the bare bones, just a wee bit of sound deadening tar left to remove, and then the dash and heater matrix once i have a new daily driver so as the carly is pure track car. the weight loss is just as good as tuning! and suspension is just as important too! luckily for me th c20ne has lots of low down torque, which is much more important than BHP!
BHP talks the talk, but torque walks the walk! lol
