minor update;

Fitted vented disc's at a cost of £15 per disc ;)
and k11 March (JDM Micra) calipers, painted them in hammerite copper which seems to go nicely with the wheels. my mate picked the color wasn't sure at first but happy now ;)

braking is much improved and the nasty k10 brake fade is a thing of the past!

Nice work mate, looks very tidy. Either get the mirrors white or mix the black and white up and get a black vinyl roof, and do the mirrors gloss black? Could look cool. Looks good though, still got a soft spot for white micras lol!

ok chaps bit of an update;

the webbers are on, not running to badly either considering they are not tuned at all. SO! as i may have mention earlier in my thread when i had the bike carbs fitted i went for a test drive with my mates Polo GT to see what sort of difference the bike carbs had made.

she kept up ok with the polo on the bike carbs but he'd always pull away in the end (im sure with proper tuning the bike carbs would be better).

anyway last night we found some nice private long roads and tested it out again, needless to say im still grinning, up to 80mph theres nothing in it almost evenly matched after that the k10 starts to pull away at quite a rate ;)

either way a 1.0 matching and then beating a 1.3 thats running over 80bhp is quite impressive! cant wait to get that 4-2-1 fitted! :D best get a new gearbox soon too the input shaft is getting a bit too noisey for my liking.

no pics of the webers on yet (not without the air pan in the way) gonna clean the entire engine bay this week and post some pics :)

Ok some action shots!

so the alternator was boned! and crap and covered in oil and god knows what;

pulled the old girl out for a nice modern version I had sitting in the garage;

performance is now much improved my electrical fault is now sorted, got a nice new battery as well so she's got her spark back!

Next I decided to clean 18 years of crud away, before;

after!


and fitted my new filters;

hopefully Thursday the exhaust manifold will be fitted, as if it isn't already quick enough! :p

more to come later! :D

aye you do that mate! lol get them setup on a rolling road mate as there plenty more power to be had from them than i had ;) and probably better MPG too if they were setup

My car used about 220 per tank (average) on a hitachi, so that's not bad. Its amazing how bad MPG can get when the carb goes wrong. Mine used to be worse than Ed's ST! 1/4 tank in 32 miles lol.

How does the car run MPG on webers compared to bike carbs?

My carb needs setting up, it's running a bit rich but I still get great fuel economy. Might just wait til I get a weber carb.

the weber 34ICH gives amazing economy, i managed 100miles from 1/4 a tank coming back from santa pod i was cruising at 60 but it was bloody worth it lol

Nice, unfortunately most of my driving is round town. Still with a little setting up it could be a good mod. My good:cheap crap ratio is beginning to level out....

ok some pics! and a vid of the acceleration you must forgive the camera work its hard to drive and film, please note this was recorded on a road where the legal speed limit is 70mph so no laws were broken..... (this time :p) and i had to steer at one point hence it being wonky :p ill take a proper 0-60 vid later when someone can film for me :D
