V6 Mivec Colt

Postby gazmcg89 » Sat Nov 28, 2015 7:37 pm

Picked up Temeeos Gpx a few weeks ago with the intention of fitting the running gear to my track car . The shell began life as a 1.3 which I removed and fitted 1.6 Mivec running gear .

This is the car when I got it

1.3 removed

Fto hubs added with sh11ty wheels

As it sat before I began taking apart again

Sitting roughly where it wants to be awaiting engine crane due to the v6 being a bit on the lardy side for the one I had !

Nice job! :D You certainly don't procrastinate! I keep making all the time "bad weather" excuses and postponing the jobs I want to do on the GX... :cry:

Bit of progress made will be slow going from here on out due to work and the nature of what's still to do but getting somewhere none the less ..


Engine in on mounts and wired

Very little tbh alot of tidying inside . Few connections to do that weren't compatible Fto was hid headlight and I used 1.6 Mivec rad . I was a bit silly and sent digital heater matrix and that away with the shell also the retainers for gear linkages inside don't match so I need one from the Fto or fit old linkages again . Power steering pump . Engine bay is 90% done

Picked up a few body bits for this yesterday will finish it nicely with some Mivec skirts and down the line nice wheels I hadn't been looking out for them but they don't come up often so I jumped


Front fogs
