I would give this a go but 1600 motors are not worth spending money on in my opinion. good luck guys.

To be honest it seemed like a good idea and dont get me wrong im not hating on the idea

but it seems the people that are happy are the ones with stuff lieing around for this to me opening it up further the budget i mean

i was throwing this idea around my work place to guage what people thought and a general consences was this

alllow any stock unopened or unmodified modified conversion to take place the budget would have to be adheared to strictly wich no more than 70 percent of funds towards conversion

or have any standard engine fitted or dirivetive fitted with open mods

say your new budget could be any were up to 3000 max

if you had access to cheep engines or parts a rrp price would be included however your labour and raw stock would not be included but parts would eg cams you had lieing around or turbos etc but

An addition to this would be factory ecu only

Any conversion completed can not use any form of forced induction unless factory original equipment there fore only stock items can be used or retained

also keeping pump fuel is a great idea also keeps that part leveled out

its just a susjestion see for me i could build a killer 1600 cc high comp donk with double webbers i could regrind my cam for nothing etc for 1500 no worries i could also build a killer combo with a single su or 350 holley ?

butr most people here cant put a engine to gether but they could bolt in a rodeo dont or smash in a vn v6 with a t700

actully you could do the 3.8 t700 conversion quite cheeply just for raceing you know ?

also as stated this is just some ideas some will work some wont

remember the 1703 i had in the green car back at jambo 2000? did 15.4 second quarters and the motor combo came in under $1500, webers and all..

so been there, done that. i'd like to build a G161Z with a G200 crank i have lying around, 1600 rods & some short deck pistons. would be fun to see what it'd do..

Great idea dude. this will separate the men from the boys, anyone can spend money but it takes a clever mechanic to go a long way with little cash and a lot of ingenuity. I especially like the fact that this gets people thinking out of the box and may end up bringing something fresh to the table. One suggestion though its probably too late, how about a sub-category to separate the twin from the single carb crew. Twins can be expensive in keeping with the theme not everybody will have them or have means to get them, not to discriminate the guys who do. Maybe just make a point of announcing the fastest single and twins car at the end and how they went about it. Personally I am more excited about seeing the fastest single carb car and what is achievable with the basics! Wish I wasn't travelling so i could join in (tough life), can't wait to see some of the entries!

is there any restrictions in tire diameters? essentially the same as different diff ratios

no , tyres are open. I tried many different variations in heigh on the coupe to see what got me the fastest , from 185/60/13 , 215/50/13 and 225/60/13 , all different heights , and found the smaller 185's were around the money.

Its owners discretion what size they use , this way it'll give everyone , including those not involved in the comp to see what combinations work the best.
