Given TMFs Virus history. IMO you'd be better off putting up your progress, pics etc.. here. That way people here can provide answers here and and it keeps the useful 16v info together.

Makes a nice helpful contribution to the 16vclub site too

I dont know, i was quite happily plodding along do little bits here and there waiting for the new year to come so i could take Nancy apart.

But Nancy has other ideas! The two lower subframe mounts have ripped themselves away from the toe-board, moving the wheels so far forward the the wheels are rubbing on the front of my arches!

Anyone want to buy my engine?

Okay. As you may have noticed I havnt done much with Nancy for a while. Ive been thinking about how to do it differently because everyone does a vtec in the front.

The thinking came around when i was away with work in Inverness. After far too many sherberts myself and two friends were in the hotel bar talking bananase like guys do in a bar. And talk got on to me friends wedding and him being taken to it in a vtec mini.

I said it was a good idea but Nancy would never be ready by 1st June! He told me i was talking rubbish and that i could do it if i just stopped fannying around and got on with it. Then we got on to his 200sx and i comented on how much fun rwd cars are to drive and that i wanted one. "Why dont you put it in the back?" A stunned silence fills the bar (not hard as there are only three of us there at 3.00am). He could see the calculating expession on my face and knew that he had struck a cord with me.

Talk then turned to the idea of a bigger engine possibility as there would be more space in the back! Crazy suggestions came out. Like the 3.0l twin turbo v6 out of the 350zx! Then that turned out to be silly, although the engine would fit, i would have nowhere to sit unless i did a Mr Bean!

So, after some research on the 200sx/pulsar, MR2 turbo, Zetec turbo, vtec turbo and NA vtec. My head began to spin with ideas.

Although they were all do-able, I already have the vtec. And seeing as now I have a deadline to get it done by Ive decided to stick with the NA vtec. I know, I know. Im dissapointed too. But speaking to ed4ran over a cup of jar standing next to Olive he came up with the greatest idea ive heard in a long time!

Im going to try and build a frame that, with very little modification, will accept different engines with ease! I know it wont be as straight forward as engine out engine in, but I goning to try and make it as easy as possible!!


So, when i get back to work, this thread is going to get very busy!
