Looks just like Rob Halls...

Who built the shell? Rob / Allspeed?

yes rob built the shell with 20ltxe in it but decided that fitting the cossy engine wouldnt be to much trouble. had to change engine mounts and exhaust because exhaust is on the other side of the cossy lump. dropped engine and gearbox by 2 inches to. I wanted about 300bhp you can get that out of a standard cossy engine to tune the xe up to that power would of cost me a lot more.

You must have some pretty special scrap yards round your way to find a Cosworth in one!!!

That will be pretty special, 300bhp is fairly easy from a cossie and in a mini weighing about 700kgs (guesstimate?) it will shift, what size rear tyres are you going to try and use?
