It's hardly locost but my mate's blog at www.elisetyper.com might be of use?

there is a guy in the middy forum with a 2.2 prelude engine in a mini. Can only be used as a middy or fwd not in a front eng rwd. Very good engine. Preludes v-tecs can be had for anything between 200 and 2000 quid. Engine and gearbox in nearly all of them will be fine its the body that lets go. Not bad 185bhp+ for 200!!





my aim is to build my own locost wether it takes me a week or 10 years to get started, i'm sure i will sometime

Its the stock manifold modified to fit, I have added about 15 cm of pipe to the primaries.

that thing will go like STINK!

very nice, one question why did you run the intake tube over the exhaust? seems like a colder spot can be found.

There is not room to get the pipe over the radiator, therefore I decided to route the pipe to the cold air near the ground.

I have dynoed it with and without the long pipe, and it actually made 5 hp more with the long pipe.
