yes I DID.
1800cc all steel engine producing masses of torque and it was my everyday driver. My only car!!

The Honda powered Shapecraft and turbo project means I will always be pissing of the purists.

Spoke to Dave today and he said it was great car,180bhp and about 145lb of torque, would have been very quick in its day,no slouch even now.Looks like one of his more subtle mods :lol:
