i had FE-DOHC (the 10comp alloy sump) in my GD 626.... microtec ran the show so no need for the AFM and i had just the cone on it.... the sound was INCREDIBLE.... damn (makes me drool just thinking about it). pulled like a mongrel all the way to 7200.

really good motor, however not a holy grail as it is seen on mx6.com/probetalk (but it is best you can get for those platforms, myself i think the BP-T even through 1.8 is a better motor)

for the ease of things i would go:

F2-T (from 626/mx6 GD)
Microtec (or similar)

easy sourced, once you get it going can drop FE-DOHC in it easy, will have better brains for it and ready for anything (microtec)

i think the F2-T is a great option for RWD, torque is fantastic....

btw, here is an interesting build up ;)

Well here's a pic of the HB sedan in question:

And engine bay:

I don't really like the colour much, but I can change that later if I want.

Yeah, I have considered the F2 or the F2T... I just don't know if it's worth the trouble if I'm only going to change it again later... :?:

very nice and clean, don't get them that clean in cream. and the bay is remarkable :)

yeah i know what you mean, but this will give you a car that will have more go and be more refined (at not such a great cost). it will also give you a ready to go platform and time to find and build the FE-DOHC :)

you could also end up being happy with f2-t with a decent turbo

And now, after much screwing around, it is registered. :)

Now to get a job and start the improvements.

To celebrate the momentous occasion of getting it registered, here is a token awesome photo of it:

Once I've got a bit of money and some idea of what direction I want to go in, I'll probably switch to the projects thread as I start working on it. For now I'm just happy to be able to drive the thing. 8-)

(sorry for the dramatisation, but it took three roadworthy attempts, and two days worth of work to get this girl back on the road)
