I build the car about 8 years back...It started of as a 1600 BDA on sidedrafs. After a year I desided to fit Toyota ITB on the BDA.. Made 129kw on this set up.

And driving a couple of year I sold the BDA. and the car stand for about 3 years, and I decide I going to build a 1600 Kent x/flow with Toyota ITB
