No not usually, they normally cost more than I would like them to and I always spend a massive amount of time doing them

Keeps me busy and normally happy

Very nice Cyco but you seem to have inadvertantly put the wrong engine in it. Surely an AJP V8 would have been the right thing to do if you're keeping the Tuscan name?

Yeh it will certainly be a load of fun to drive, should really supprise alot of newer more expensive cars on the track.

Total weight should be around 750kg's

Did consider that engine but could not get it far enough back for good weight distribution, also they are heavier than the S2000 engine and plenty more money.

The plan is to run it at 260bhp to start with, then if I am happy with it all and need more power stroke it to 2.4ltr N/A circa 310bhp.

If I still need more power I will then stick a supercharger on it which at 2.4ltr should produce approx 450bhp

And at 750kg's this should be plenty.
