Its been a while since I lasted updated, but the project has now taken a major step foward the shell is undergone some major work, including a full wire tuck and engine bay re-spray, and the drivetrain has been fitted to the car - I ended up swapping my PPG setup with Clive's 6 speed setup from his track car (Mad HAmmer).

The long engine was completed last month...

The workbench with all the goodies...





Although the block came back from Lateral spotlessly clean after the rear thrust conversion and rebore, we thought it would be best to give things a quick clean just in case any grit or dirt was picked up in transit...







Once everything was clean to a standard assembly of the short was started, bearings, etc were lubricated using graphogen...













After speaking to several Tuners, including Wiseco themselves we decided to gap the rings to the following :

Top Ring = 0.0050" and "2nd Ring 0.0055"





The short Motor was then pretty much ready for the heads, so the Cosworth stud kit was installed alongside the headgaskets, the heads were tourqed down exactly to Cosworth's instructions...





The end Result.....

Would have loved some nice rcm vernier pulleys but i can't squeeze them in to the budget, I will most probably upgrade them when I have car mapped for race fuel, the oe pulleys will have to do for now..

Mine has run without verniers for the past two seasons, for your targets you don't need them.

Hi mate loving the work so far but would it be better to replace the plastic cam pules for the early metal pulleys just to be on the safe side ?

It's more about minimising your losses though, and improving on the efficiency of the motor....

If you've gone to the expenses of buying cams, then it would be worth dialling them in too. If you can pick up a few hp and ftlb and put a bit more area under the dyno graphs, then I would see it as being a worthwhile exercise

Omar - you might want to measure where your centrelines are on stock pulleys, to see how far out they are. A before and after comparison on the dyno would be interesting to see

The cams I picked up dirt cheap from a mate who decided to use cosworth cams in his build, there is a rumour though that they originate from the original white RA that paul at zen had as his demo car, I have yet to confirm this with him though, Ill post up the spec sheet of the cams that piper gave to me when I had them inspected and measured up...

A direct comparison would be a good idea though, but for now I'll stick with the stock pulleys, but I'll definately have it mapped on both sets of pulleys on v-power for a direct comparison before I start messing about with methanol and race fuel

I was thinking that the other day as I dont remember yours having the pulleys either, so I guess I shouldn't really have any issues apart from missing out on possibly a few horses

Hi Omar,

Nice build so far mate,

Our pulleys are used on 9 of the USA rally team cars. Simon (jgm) also has them on his car and Rich (FB tuning) has seen these first hand, I am sure they can vouch for the qualtiy. We are also currently making some pulleys for Andy forrest drag car.

We only use good grade hard anodized alloy for all our cam pulleys.


You said about maybe fitting some after, if you do this you will need to remove the engine to dial the cams correctly either that or you will have to use them in stock postions - this will still be better as those bakerlight ones are very weak.

You are more than welcome to come and view some to inspect them.


The ones with stainless centres retail at 550 or our titanium true lock ones will be 900 as we havent released them yet.

Drop me a pm and i'll do you a good deal
