LOK15's entry TF "Moonshine Madness"

Post by LOK15 »

I will be using a TF sedan picked up from Moby vic's

And the engine bay as i got it......

Yes , that is oil covering everything.

Car is factory 4 speed 1600cc's of 25 second goodness ( it runs on 3 cylinders )

It does have tuned length extractors and a 2'5" exhaust already fitted.
Originally had a locked diff , but i replaced that back to factory open centre diff

Plans are to rebuild this motor into the 15 second "moonshine run" vehicle it was always destined to become!!

Costs:
Car $175

OK , so here is the plan.

G161 to be bored and 2lt pistons put into it
G161 TX head will be used , home port job.
Intake i'll leave a secret for now.
Dizzy will be played with a little , basically changing the timing total.
Camshaft will be roughly a 30/70
Will be running exhaust currently incar , which is 4-1 snakes ( you can see them kinda in the pic )
4 speed box and stock open centre diff.

Planning on pulling motor out in the next fw weeks and stripping it down in the shed.

I have various cams here , even have a 40/80 , but dont really want to use it.

There might be a 35/75 amongst them all , but will have to get some spare time to see about finding lift and duration.

In true 15's for $1500 fashion, a flycut is but an angle grinder away!
