It's a Foah kit. They made several different kits for the K10. You do see them changing hands on ebay / MSC and can also be found in scrappy's if your lucky

Ahh I see, I thought the foah sideskirts were flat is all. These look awesome.

Seriously thinking of a nice K10 like this as a cheap runabout, I loved my K11!

actually its just come to light that this kit is made by a company called Haselback in Japan they made kits for several cars including the starlet of the 80's, so its not a FOAH as once suspected ;)

Looking good! You running a 1.2 ported engine too? When you going to get the car Dyno'd? :) 100bhp here you come!

Ex. Club Member
its the 1.0 i believe. imo not alot of point running 100+bhp if theres no solution to the weak gearbox + clutch.

Keep up the good work. Can you not get a set of spacers for the wheels to push them out a bit? They look a bit to far in the arch at the mo in my opinion. Nice to see micra tuning has come on along way since I had mine. :p

Hey speedle, I was just looking a for a bit of info on your intake setup, what components are they? I understand you are using weber 34ICH but is it a DiY job? Also what was the rough cost of it all?
Many thanks

hi mate they are actually twin 36's on a custom inlet manifold that was designed for the k10 ma10 engine by a german compnay called AM tuning. being a very rare item they wernt cheap, in the 6 years ive been on the MSC ive only ever seen 2 sets of these and i have one of them :p

it woulb be easy to repllcate the manifold but quite expensive, bike carbs are the cheapest option with good gains to be had

hi mate they are 36DCNF carbs not 34ich's 34's dont have a linkage avaliable as far as im aware in order to have them work as a pair, they are on custom manifold made by a german company called AM tunig, TBH i dont think we will ever see another set of these again in the UK, in the 7 years ive had k10's ive only ever seen pictures of these carbs until now.

Thanks for the info! Regarding the bike carbs - is a custom inlet manifold necessary and is this expensive? Who makes them?

it not expensive to be honest mate the inlet mai was made by bogg brothers i can remeber the prices as i didnt have it made myself but for the power gained it was cheap the whole setup cost around £250 that was for the manifold carbs etc

do a search mate im sure there is a contact number on here somewhere

4-2-1's on now

good news

cars even faster! its just getting scarey now :p

bad news

leaks at the joint to the exhaust and has mis-alligned the exhaust so i need to get a complete new custom exhaust, which i did need to do :( just more money!

Gotta love being able to read :p

Speed. They may charge more if you have a 3" exit pipe or larger. I know 2.5" or below is included in the standard price.

ill keep that in mind mate, im not after a loud exhaust at all in fact id like it to be quiet as long as it looks nice, i think the oval design i have at the mo suits the car very well so i may stick with that :)

new exhaust is now fitted looks great still leaking where the manifold joins the system though, this is the manifold fault tho, so im going to make a sleve for the mani to exhaust join that should make it airr tight :D

as for the longlife guys they were brilliant! lifetime garunteed and no need to take it for check ups like powerflow make you do ;)

will take some tommoz, ordered a lamda sensor blank for the manifold as i cant phsically fit the lamda sensor on. as a result the bodge ive done is leaking lol. ordered a new gasket head set so i can fit a fresh exhaust mani gasket too as i reuseed the orginal Which is fine but i like to be sure

i will be removing the manifold this weekend in order to sort it out once and for all!!!!! the new zorst i specifically asked to be quiet but it still has a lovely burble and looks friking awesome!! he he :D
 
Hi speedle!!! i remember the old white k10...... when you getting those vinyls sorted? will be back in pompey soon for good. should meet up for a drink yeh?

hey stu

yeah sounds good mate been a while! ;)

anyway update sorry for the pics but i feel like crap and cant really be arsed at the mo!

new seats (now i have a complete interior);





thanks for the seats rimmer :D, you may notice ive put a new steering wheel on too froma 100NX much better i think ;)

the k11 NME 4-2-1 manifold (engine bay needs a clean!)



New full stainless zorst thanks to the legends at long life zorsts!;




yummy!

the cars performance at the moment just keeps amazing me its just such a nice car to drive on the motorway now and up hills it actually accelarates in 5th gear!!!! you find me another 1.0 that does that and does it well ;) this car is nothing short of awesome!

i wont be adding anymore power mods to the car now as i think its perfect the way it is and i dont want to blow the gearbox. all i shall be doing now is tuning the carbs and job done!

what effect would putting all your mods onto an MA12 have, would you be able to achieve a higher BHP figure?

good question the ma10 is a sronger engine and im using the MA10s which is 55bhp stock so were only talking 5bhp i will be having it rolling roaded soon to see what its running and have it tuned personally i think the ma10s will be better than the ma12 according to the german documents with the 36 carbs it takes a ma10 50bhp up to 70ps which is approx 69.8bhp so at a guess id say shes about 80-85bhp with the current mods with the 4-2-1 adding about another 10bhp.

still BHP means #### its the torque thats been increased the most and is the most impressive thing.

the rear blets are in but cant be used as the clips arent there :p the fronts i shall replace at the weekend :) and then ill hoover the car clean it up get some floor mats fit the 6x9's and bolt the rear bench down..... there goes my weekend :(

using a calculator on the interweb and guessing the bhp figure i came up with this, the 0-60 is nearly spot on;

and here are the figures (approx) for power to weight etc :) if power to weigh is anywehere near that id be very impressed rollling road session needs sorting asap

Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 85
Weight without Driver (KG) : 655
Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 131.85
0 - 60 (Secs) : 8.09
0 - 100 (Secs) : 24.39
60 - 100 (Secs) : 16.29
Quarter Mile (Secs) : 16.61
Terminal Speed (MPH) : 82.52
Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 16.41
Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 83.95

cant wait mate! its going to be a great time for the club! showing the world that 10's arnt slow anymore :D

to put the power to weight in perspective here is a stock ma10s (55bhp) PTW;

Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 55
Weight without Driver (KG) : 675
Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 82.79

think i got the weight wrong actually so....

Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 85
Weight without Driver (KG) : 675
Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 127.95
0 - 60 (Secs) : 8.31

and the ST;

Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 110
Weight without Driver (KG) : 770
Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 145.15
0 - 60 (Secs) : 7.43

remember these are just calculations its different in the real world :p maybe i will just change the cam :p he he

you can get it re-profiled mate Ed does this but you need to provide your cam in order to do this, luckily i have a spare ;)
 

curtis

Ex. Club Member
oh i know you can get it reprofiled but i though you were talking about a fast road cam or something lol
 
according to my calculations (1000(kg) / 655(kg) * 85(bhp) ) = 129.77BHP Per Tonne! nice =) For all who wondered, to calculate your BHP, this is how

1000KG (1ton) / [Your Cars Weight] * [Your Cars BHP]

Sorted =)

/ means divide
* means multiply

Shame I'm going for forced induction in 2008.... :laugh: ;)

The K10 weighes as much as a box of matches, and as you reckon you're running 80bhp+ at the wheels then thats me out for the count!

Until next year :laugh:
