    hey Lee, been reading your thread on the 2.0 REDTOP CONVERSION. I have a 1.0 litre carb nova, the fuel lines, tank braize, fuel pump and swirl pot sounds a biggy. What sort of cost would it be for these changes?

    Wouldn't have thought that lot would cost over £100 (new tank, second hand fuel pump, make up some new fuel lines)

    Bit of a thread hop. I’ve a 2ltr 8v here that I’m thinking of running on twin 40 webers

    is there a guide on that?
    ie what’s needed and not in the 8v loom

    You'd pretty much bin the 8v loom and use a mk2 cav dizzy and loom for ignition only or join the 21st century and use a mappable ignition like nodiz or MBE and run a wasted spark setup in either 2 or 3d

    Don’t see a point in myself buying a mappable ECU. If I can just get it to run an be reliable enough it will do me just fine

    i have all here to run standard now room. New distributor, arm, coil an leads
    bjt thought came into the head of running twin 40 webers

    They're not actually as expensive as you'd think, if you go webers then your standard dizzy will be no good with the cav setup but will work with the mappable ignition. To be honest unless you're slapping a cam in I'd stay standard, also 45s are probably a better shout on a 2.0
