Manta 1.8 Project


Recommended Posts

Bought this manta just over a week ago as a standard two owner 34000 mile berlinetta. Wasnt 100% what I wanted bud a good starting point. Plans are eventually redtop on carbs. Want output of around 200hp.

First things first, it needed lowering desperately and the standard wheels had to go. So ive got it on koni dampers and h&r lowering springs so a perfect drop. Wheels are standard gte with yoko a048 tyres. Heres how she sits atm. Ive also stripped interior. Just need some gte front seats

Been potching about with it lately, welded up the diff to make it easier to use for drifting. First attempt wasn't all too well and it went bang. Second attempt is holding out well!


Also been trying to fix my axle tramp issues. I swapped the front torque tube mounting bracket bushes for polybushes and trial fitted some extra rubber in the poorly designed rubber bush which holds the end of the torque tube as you can see where its been smashing against the top of it.

Bushes were a pain to get out, so use my special tool ;)


and new bush in:
