Redtop conversion !!!!


Recommended Posts

Hi lads just a thought I'm was wondering how much a mechanic would charge to take out 1800 manta engine and do a redtop conversion? Just labour as I'd be supplying everything.  Also what power gains could I expect as I'm at about 90bhp with the 1800 engine. Regards

Last redtop seen fitted to a manta making 168bhp, at the flywheel. Standard injection, no internal work, not too shabby for an old donkey. Btw this was at Mondello. Dublin.:huh:

If you can undo and tighten a few bolts, access to an engine lift, and able to join a few wires why not do it yourself, 

its hard to put a price and timescale on it, and if you want it done right, ecu inside car, eml light working, fuel return pipes made up correctly, exhaust renewed, engine loom wired to a 1.8 loom. GTE injection hatch tank, where does it stop!
