    Seat rails

    Fitting of or modification to: LVV certification is not required provided that: the seat is either an OE seat from another vehicle, or similar to the OE seat and of a known and reputable aftermarket brand, and - the seat is fitted to unmodified OE seat anchorages, and - the anchorage or operation of seatbelts is not affected, and - the relationship between seat, seat occupant, and location of the seatbelt anchorages is not affected, and - the vehicle is not fitted with airbags in that seating position. (Note that LVV certification is not required where the only modification is the removal of seats and/or seatbelt anchorages. However, a class change and a new load rating may be required in some cases.) I suggest you check the legal issues first
  4. fair enough, What sort of KMS has it done?
  5. I bet 5$ its your rings not your valve seals

    escort fuel additives

    Just a couple of things ive found : My car (pinto cort...) gets better economy (less cost as well) out of 96 than 91. Theres a product called um, moreys upper head cyl. lubricant, seems to do the job too.

    new cortina

    Just be wary that setting up the pinto valve train can lead to bad times if you dont know what your doing

    Tech crap for carbs and shit

    ah okay then, 511cube V8's for everyone!!!! unforunatly mate, it doesnt always work this way, he may want to stay 1600 for a reason, maybe to preserve the the car in its 'factory' state, maybe he wants to enter in racing classes for <1600 cars, he may infact want to do alot of things hence why he asked about modding his engine not upsizing it...

    Tech crap for carbs and shit

    your engine is sad in what way? no power? no torque? slow reving? its best to have a good read up on your engine to start with and find what other people have done, port and polish without doing the cam isnt going to give you much, and doing the head without sorting the fueling and exausting isnt gonna help either

    couple of questions and wants

    i always thought the 2L gbox only fitted the 2L pinto, and the same for the 1600, but yea might pay to check. Sierras bits are cheep as chips nowdays, there are so many of the things around
