Very nice, I'm seriously thinking about another K10 now,
but I reckon you should open the grille, tint the windows and get a nice set of alloys.

well i knew wot this sounded like (sounds good). and it costs me nearly a quater with everything i needed to convert it. rather than a new system which would loose too much back pressure and have a chavvy can. so seemed logical. plus i had to buy new tyres as one went pop through deteriation. so all worked out good

Since the last update

ok shown in these pics are a set of Old carbs
these were fitted and gave gains but ive decided to do it properly
the Old carbs as i got them




ok this was the first go stripping and fitting the old ones

Stripping the carbs



The carbs car


new shiny carbs






these are awaiting a fully custom manifold

well lookie what i got







hee hee

well test fit the carbs tonight and they fit very snug almost factory fit. i had to modify the bike air filter mount with a trusty hack saw.

ive found that the pipe that was used for my brake assist fits the coolant feed.

the easiest way to fit them is to remove the studs and use bolts to fit the manifold.


just the fueling bits to mount up, make some throttle linkage and its first start time

more shiny bits wooo

well as there was 2 breathers from the cam cover not beeing used i found this lil gem on ebay for cheaper than 2 lil filters







here they are on the car

And So The End Is Near

AND SO WE WENT FOR OUR LAST DRIVE TOGETHER :'(

went out for a drive down the backroads before stripping the micra it had almost a full tank so was a good long drive and she performed great just sad its not ecnomical to put it through the MOT

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUH1Fl7L3ro

quick clip through the ford ( may have gone a little too fast ) it took half the system off but it was all ok just a joint.

sounded like this after (filmed on a phone so sound is crap)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StwZoVin-7U

continued on home and she now looks like this





Good times were had with this lil car but onwards and upwards

looking at french hatch with a 1.9 :D

a 309 GTI.....lol
much better equiped than the 205, and much much better handling especialy at high speeds........and a bigger boot, and much rarer.......but use the same bits......and came with the 160bhp 16v engine as standard in some models.....

happy hunting, (ps i had a miami blue 309 gti 3 door with 70,000 miles on the clock for £700...)
