hello all, im chris from manchester in the UK. im currently building a locost 7 kit car with the swift gti engine.

a few weeks ago i bought my little swift gti engine. had been stood for over 2 years due to head gasket failing. so wasnt in the best of condations but as its so light and has good potential i thought why not.

1.3 gti 1990 G13b engine with 101 bhp before any mods.

getting head bolts has proven to be difficult, so in the end i just bought some from the bmw m50 engine as i read they would do the job. tonight i plan to strap the head back on and then need to get the head cleaned up and painted.

plans for it are to get hold of a mega squirt ecu and edis 4 or higher. run it on the ford coil pack. then just need a jimny or sj413 gearbox...


as i just collected this engine already out of the car, theirs a few pipes etc im not 100% sure of yet, but will ask for help once its togerher and i know whats what

cheers for reading and all help and advice would be apriciated
