    Hey all a little parts update and exhaust fix on the six so the six had a leak under the inlet manifold so pulled it all off  and you can see in photos how restricted the exhaust is so I changed it so it can breathe better maybe get an extra 1 hp and save some gas as it’s 2.41 a litre here , and the parts are for the gear box tr6060 the rear case conversion I can run both electronic and mechanical speedo also have a 31 spline yoke which I prefer than having a slip joint in the drive shaft

    Good choice of Engine it’s a no brainer these days, just looked I’ve had my engine 10 years next month, it’s almost an LSA prototype and has been brilliant!  B-)

    yeah I think when I joined the forum 3 a bit years ago I looked at the l98 and whipple then decided that the lsa was the choice as you say can not build it for that worse if you don’t have a motor to start with

    Going to have a go at making the engine mounts and headers for it

    Mounts are easy, I made my own “tough mounts”…

    1.5” CDW roll cage tube is 33mm ID, Superpro SPF2051K Suspension poly bushes are a perfect fit and you can buy 18mm bright steel bar that fits inside them for the crush tubes, 12mm hole through them and you’re good to go!

    I used them for everything in the Lexcen, Lower Control Arms, Engine mounts, Rear Subframe mounts, 3 years of competition they’re all perfect still.

    Damn sight cheaper than Tough mounts as well, you just cut them down as needed lengthwise, stock they end up around about 100mm long from memory.
