hi all

So you've just joined, why not say a few words to introduce yourself - a bit about you, your car - whatever!

Hello Steve and welcome to the club. That's a nice looking chassis.

As said elsewhere a build thread would be of interest to a lot of us.

Once again welcome

Welcome to SKCC, I look forward to seeing your car progress :)

Not sure it really is a kit car, more of a one off prototype! You might have to start selling kits later on when people see you driving it, because it looks great so far.

Radiators were marginal especially rear mounted facing towards the back. Looks like your engine is NA if the coolant system is routed the same as the turbo lump you need to make sure you get some coolant to the cold side of the thermostat. I guess you’re not running a heater so connect the two ends of the pipes together to complete the circuit and ensure some hot coolant gets to the cold side otherwise the thermostat won’t operate properly. Or remove water pump impeller and thermostat and run an electric water pump.


yes its a na quad cam engine. i was planning to join the 2 heater hoses together but have recently been thinking of blanking them off then remove the thermostate but keep the standard pump. will this be ok ?. im planning to fit the rad up front in the nose sloping back but as u can see there isnt much space. do u know what rad u used and the sizes of it as i would prefur to use one from another car than to have a custom one made. do u know anyone in kent that can do ecu work as i need the secondary air delete.
thanks
