It had its "Birthday" today:
Fired up the first time!
I sent the ecu to a friend who gets rid of the immobilizer.

Cheers

Nice work!

I'm hoping to fit a K series into an Allegro so very interested in this.

Wow, nice work :0 Love the custom brakes and shocked you managed to get everything to fit. Can't wait to see how mean it looks once you have the big arches on!

Was the vvc not enough for you??

The VVC is a great engine, had a lot of fun. Drove a few thousand miles with it.

But, I had a great offer from a customer, who wanted to upgrade his 1.8 elise.
So a engine swap was decided. VVC out, Rover 75 1.8t bought and the games began again

And now itīs just sorting out some minor electric issues, a customized dash (classic look, but full oled screen with more information), a set of semi slick wheels...

End of march it has to be my birthday present, again

cheers

Looked already very good from the start. Ace fabricating skills. How many HP you expect?

Thanks

I "ordered" the around 200Hp and 280Nm/2000rpm Ecu. So that should do a solid baseline.
When finished, it will hit the rolling road.

Compared to a rover 75 setup it has a way bigger intercooler/piping, bigger freeflow exhaust, so maybe there could be a few more ponys be awaken :P

Very nice work, how is the twin rad setup working for you?

Also what brake calipers are you using at the front? I see custom brackets but they look like mgf calipers?

I'm going to try the 240mm mgf discs first but would like to go bigger - not easy with 14" wheels though.

Have you fitted the jdm fenders yet??

Thanks mates

The front discs/hubs are Rover 75 5stud, machined to fit into Audi B3 Wheelbearings (they fit into the mgf hubs)
The Calipers are Honda Vtec (the vtec has thicker rotors 22mm)
with a custom bracket.

On the first conversion with 14" wheels i used the same vtec calipers with adapter to fit on 260mm Del Sol Vtec discs.
The Brakes are really very very "angry". You slam gentle your foot down on the middle pedal and you stand stil.
285mm front, 245 rear with semis slicks is really slightly overrated for that small car

The ultra long final drive is just perfect for the turbo, as it starts to pull from 2000rpm... very lazy driving, not loud, but quick
