Re: My 360 + Plans!

It's good to see this hasn't ended up slammed with a welded diff. What do you have planned for it? It's far too clean to rag it :D I'll be fully sorting the bodywork soon but the more immediate plans are to polybush all round, update the suspension & drop it a fair amount, etc. Eventually it'll hav...

Re: B19A Injection Swap

Sounds like a good plan! If you get a carbed engine originally from a 240 or 740 then it should be dead easy to get working. The only thing you might have to consider is whether you keep with the Renix ignition module, replace it with the ignition system from the donor car or something aftermarket....

For all the effort you put in you might as well fit a turbo engine and ignition system. I was going to say - the carb on the B19A is super simple so if it's not r...

B19A Injection Swap

Hi,

I'm looking to swap over my B19A 360 over to injection.

Any input is appreciated, cheers.
