  1. 3.2 engine is fly by wire throtal, so a bit harder to wire up. All the 2.5, 2.6, 30 and 3.2 V6 engines use the same engine block, it is just the intack system that differs. I have fitted Omega 3.0 engine to both A and B Manta's, but the Omega intake sits a bit higher than the Vectra one I have used in my car. Personally I think the Vectra system is the best looking.
  2. I'm running a V6 Vectra engine in my A, love the power and not too hard to install. You will need to make some custom parts: Sump, Manifolds, exhaust system, engine mounts off the top of my head. I have the full wireing pin outs available if you need them.
  3. May have one, just not sure where. In the middle of house move, so everything is packed away.
  4. Hi Luis. Are you back in Spain now? If not, we have a monthly meet up in Leamington Spa on the 3rd Friday of the month, it would be great to see a new face if you can make it. This months meet is on the 21st at the Royal Hourse, Poseidon Way.
  5. Sorry to hear this, Wishing you and your son all the best.
  6. Took the Manta out for a run today, first time out since Sywell in July, after having spent the last 6 months rebuilding the gearbox and engine. The car ran fine but I seem to have lost the earth to the d/s dip headlight. Will this car ever be sorted?
  7. I use the £ shop ones in my caravan, for what they cost you can't go wronge.
  8. Looking good. Great day for painting, nice and hot😁
