2.4 8v CIH is a good base, plenty of upgrade paths and parts still available. and get saving up to build a 16v conversion with it for the future 😎

Aw mate its the parts that are the issue,I'd love to get my hands on a 2.4 and convert the c30 head to fit however its unrealistic.The Risse head was starting off at 10k so I have to get real.

The engine iv got running sweet mate and the engine conversion will be getting done after its painted in July.

I'm undecided between the let or the xe however more so with the xe on carbs and type9 box with LSD.As much as I hate the fact of attatching a ford part to it but have no choice the ratios and upgraded type 9 seems ideal.

Il start buying bits that I need soon once I go firm on what engine buddy its just a headache deciding 🤣

Type 9 does give a shed load of options for internals tbh and a tried and trusted box. 

Yea im kinda settled on the box,im sure il go the xe route with a decent amount of power,stafford do a decent 2.3 lump so when I'm back home il strengthen the swan necks just in case 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Other option is SAAB B234 , but not sure about swan knecks even needing to be strengthened, perhaps seem weld/stiching a little 😎
