      Welcome to the club Mark! Looks like a fun choice of car! Are you planning on the 1.8 or 2.5 engine?

        I think i might go for a rover v8 or a 302. I’m torn. More power with the 302 but it is heavier. I think id like a useable 200-220 hp

      Sounds good either way! You don’t need much power in a lightweight car like these though. I’ve only got a 1.6 MX5 NA engine in my Westie, and I certainly don’t find it lacking for road use – it’s all down to your personal preference though!

        I’m a sucker for originality though. I found a company in Texas who builds crate 289’s but I’m scared to get a quote for shipping and the customs might just send me to an early grave !
