So I done a little bit of thinking in the past few months, and decided, that its no use to build the car with the fiat engine, witch can put out 180 hp with a lot of tuning. So I sold the fiat engine, and bought an SR20DET:
Its going to get an S15 turbo, bigger injectors, some management system, and E85, so around 250-300 hp maybe? Also, for this engine power, I'm buying an S13 rear suspension, so I'm heading in a new direction, and so far, so good. Although the chassis is sitting on the rotisserie, didnt have any time, so nothing new
I cant wait so make some noise with the engine as well, I miss it so much! I scheduled some race's, and drift practise day's, so hopefully I can enjoy driving again! I hope we can make some footage as well
Just joined this site and loving your car. I am rebuilding my rally Lada in the UK but parts supply is difficult. Do you know any good places or web sites in Hungary that I could get parts. I need a VFTS body kit and suspension bushes for now. Any help would be much appreciated.
There are a lot of changes going on in my life at the moment. In a jiffy:
I moved to an own flat, so I have no garden, garage etc to work in, my car is more than 50km from me, so the lada project is on halt. Me and my friends are starting a company, so money is needed for that more than my cars I sold the sr20 engine, broke the 2101 to parts, the 2107 is still on the stand, waiting for another sr20, but not in the next few years.
Although I bought a ford sierra estate! 2.0 DOHC 125 hp and it has an original viscous LSD (not to good actually). Originally I bought if for the winter, but I took it out for a little minirally event, and its actually quite fun with small tyres. BTW its a very VERY low budget car! Everything is done by a friend of mine. Its fun to finally drive and not build something... So far the only modifications are cut springs, and increased steering angle. I'm trading my current suspension for a ford scorpio suspension (30mm wider), and getting a welded diff as well.
I also traded some of my lada parts for an intercooler, turbo, piping etc, so in the spring it will get another engine (2.0 zetec), and a turbo So it will get much much stronger.
