I had one of those "freaky" occurrences today.......
I was in the garage discussing the engine conversion with a mate who will shortly be starting his own Micra conversion and we were chatting about what size steel tube to use when I make the inlet manifold.
We measured the inlet port size and mulled over several possibilities and then in a moment of inspiration I remembered my sons old stunt scooter handlebars were kicking around somewhere, I dug them out......and when I cut the steerer section to suit the port/head the resulting oval shape matches the ports exactly....!!!!...Freaky.
So now I have 16" of 4130 seamless chromoly tube ready and waiting....superb.

Ill post some pics tomorrow to prove it.
Any engine will fit in any car as long as you have brains and money.
If you dont have the brains it'll cost you a lot,lot more.
