Its 1293cc.
The ECU is a Megasquirt which I built myself from a kit.
I'm very happy with it.
Like all management systems at this level, its only as good as the person who maps it

Well it sounds as if it's getting there!

I play with the Emerald system on the 'K' series engines a bit.

The doors are only shells with no internal reinforcing beams
Is that what you mean?

Hi no it is a pair of bars that sit on the sills and are atached to the front screen bar and the rear hoop,it would be on the sill,you would see them.

If you look at the picture of the interior on the previous page you can see the roll bar going around the windscreen .
I presume this goes into the sill but I don't know
I can take some other pics if you like

Finally got round to making my headlamp covers.
Quite involved but turned out OK in the end

Also did a bit more mapping today on the throttle response. Before there were some occasions when there was a short hesitation after a long time on trailing throttle but looks as though its fixed now.

It has been a while since I have done any work on the car due to restoration of a Riley RM

Just had the seats re-upholstered as they were looking a bit tired.
Great service from the manufacturers:
