Time for a small update....Haven't done very much of late.....but have managed to get the pedal box mounted up, and picked up the driveshafts.

The Pedal box is from OBP......Will be making up some solid lines to join up to the front flexis and existing rear solids, plus the clutch line.

Driveshafts are basically identical to the DMW spec shafts i used to run (shafts could be a shade thicker!) So they should have no problem handling the power I hope to get to in the future.

Once I move house I'll be getting stuck into getting the car finished up.

Well its been 14 months since the last update, but finally making some progress again.

Starting to get the electrics together - I'm building the majority of the electrics around the dash (almost as a module) using a Haltech plug-in for the K20 and a Haltech display dash

Tomorrow I'm dropping the car off to have the extractors made up

Drive shafts were made by the same guy that does all the DMW shafts, it has the same outters as the DMWs but because of the honda factor the shafts (I remember correctly) are both mazda bravo shafts and the inner CVs are bravo inners with the splines cut out and the honda inner splines welded in.....the guy is abit of a genius when it comes to CV shafts if you ask me!

I think I stand a chance of at least being able to bring it out the hatch attack for display....given that jambo is coming up tuning could be a challenge!!

The poor thing has been sitting in the bone-yard for far to long....the deterioration from sitting this long has been pretty bad now that I've been looking over things a little closer. Hopefully its not too much longer and I can bring it home!!

Picked the car up today from having the extractors made up, I must say I'm pretty impressed with how they have turned out. Had them done at Scotts Rods here in Ipswich, they are 4-2-1 and for the time being, they flow into the 3 inch side pipe I already had for the car. (Once the car is up and running this will be changed to something that complies with the noise restriction at Lake Side).

I got a couple of pictures, but its all rather snug (and I'd been in the sun for a few hours fixing up the wiring on my trailer!!) so these were the best I could manage.

Looks like it will be a prick to change oil filters! Is there a brake booster in there somewhere?

Why??? he has twin MC's and a balance bar, booster is definitely not needed.

That obp pedal box is on my shortlist, did you get it locally or direct from the UK? what size MC's are on it? any reinforcing under the floor?

Usually cheaper to go direct to the UK Dattman , and if we were allowed to use them id have one in my improved production car but rules wont allow us to use floor mounted setupso ihad to make my own off the original pedal. it really makes a huge difference in braking ! I used a .7 and a .75 master cyls on mine .

I think he got sick of rebuilding engines. If Ben didnt do this conversion when he did, there's a very good chance it would have been sitting in my engine bay instead. I can't stand most honda owners but there's no denying their engines are brilliant and parts are dirt cheap and available off the shelf. With the low weight of the mk1 plus what bens taken out of it again. It will take very little power to get this thing hauling.

Spent the week leading up to Hatch Attack trying to get this thing finished, but sadly didn't make it - couple of electrical issues followed by a dead battery.

But I finished up the pipe work for the pedal box, throttle cable, fuel system etc

And finally, here are a couple of pictures of the first start up.....the video really doesn't do justice just how loud this thing is currently!!

There is still a way to go before the car is really 'finished' but atleast its running now!!! Great success!! :lol:

Will be a real pocket rocket ! ....Have you considered trimming the front and rear bumpers to shorten the overall length...makes a mk1 look better proportioned...

Not much of an update but there is slow progress and building motivation, another of my hobbies has taken a lot of attention away from the swift.

But shortly after my last update I discovered a pretty serious leak (which ended up being leaks) in the radiator. But in the last week or two the radiator came back from being recored and I had a decent fan mounted to the front.
