  1. I’d be apt to go for more torque too I have a standard GSi with the 2.0 CIH & Le2 jetronic which runs ok but would benefit from a rebuild. Having previously read through many posts on this site realise that the 2.0 head, inlet valves & manifold are even poorer than the 2.2 but I’ve been quite interested in what the effects of a modern EFI would be on a standard engine hence the questions The air sensor issue is an interesting insight thank you
  2. Thanks for the link, as far as I can make out you have improved the fuel economy which is great, have you also noticed any improvement in performance?
  3. This whole thread is fantastic, your determination & creativity are an inspiration.
  4. Looking great! I hope you got all the original paperwork too.
  5. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1166763 Fantastic condition but at £13k it would need to be.

    400 bonnet

    Mrcarlos on here had one that needs some work but a good basis. Search Manta 400 fibreglass bonnet on eBay
  7. Ahhh that would also explain the 1.9e engine they’ve listed too
  8. Browsing eBay & saw this, thought it may be of interest. Looks like they have some other stuff too https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273859472122 It seems if you put this in eBay there's other stuff of interest seller:carpartsmountain opel
  9. That’s interesting to hear, I think mine actually needs to be stripped back to the original paint & redone. It’s a testament to the guy who sprayed it a decade ago that it’s stood up reasonably for the length of time it has but I’m probably just putting off the inevitable now.
  10. Wayne now you’re nearly done & have conquered reacting paint, can I send you mine? 😜
  11. Hi Paul, there are several very knowledgable guys on here; there's quite a bit more info if you join the club too. Will you be doing most of the work yourself?
  12. Pictures aren't great but still https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Classic-car-ford/333269977299?hash=item4d987048d3:g:SWoAAOSwPlhdL3dQ
