6 spd

Flak,

Thank you for the reply. On the 6 spd, the reason I went zetec rx8 6 spd was the bell is a lot smaller than the miata and T5. Also the cost is better for me. A couple of things I am considering is dual fuel. Though I am currently running cycle carbs. And by dual fuel one or the other, still looking how to do the swap on the tanks. Although I could do sna
Pin LPG bottles.
Do you have any ideas along those lines. CNG and LPG work way better if the car is stored for any length of time.

How do you like the duratec after running it for several years ?

I have the 2.5 in our transit connect van with the dual clutch std. Pretty snappy.

Thank you for your response,

Charles

It also leans the engine over a few degrees which causes issues, and it's a large case, which causes clearance issues compared to the type 9.




Hey flak.
How are you doing, long time no speak.
Not sure if you remember but I was building my duratec along with yours, unfortunately mine had to be broken to buy a house.
I am now back in a kit though but bike engined.

Good to see your still sharing you knowledge on here

I'm good thanks back in action after a break of a few years!

I do remember, sorry to hear you had to abandon. Hopefully you've managed to find another project?

I'm probably going to have a sell up myself to sort some finances and a few other things

No I sold it over 6 years ago. I have my Camaro and bike to keep me busy. But might sell up again soon and start something else. Or just have a break.
