    I’m still working through it slowly, up to page 20 now.

    You and me both it’s on the ability front. I can only regret I didn’t follow the engineering path when I had the chance earlier in life.

    Im getting too old for spending ages on forums and there are only a few builds I follow now (this being one) but it’s well worth a read

    An excellent build thread, with some astonishing attention to weight saving. Thanks for putting me on to it.

    There's been some progress on my project, I'll do an update soon.

    Glad you liked it,
    i used to follow him on the old vauxsport forum, he was building an xe midget.
    the attention to detail is something i could only dream of.
    I’m guessing you’ve been watching project binky? That’s another build with incredible attention to detail

    Have you got a plan as to when it will go back to a 1 litre turbo?or is it just as funds permit?
    how much quicker will it be with the smaller engine?

    It’s very much a question of money. I’m spending most of what I earn on house restoration right now. But it’s still my desire to go back to forced induction.

    There’s no real reason why 250bhp+ can’t be achieved from a 1000cc turbo, running lots of boost for short duration sprints. It might be needed too, there’s now a 1000cc turbocharged Hillman Imp which is getting great results at various hillclimbs.
