Wish calling it a muscle car were as simple . Have to keep deciding wether to tune it for mileage or for power wish there was some way to gt the best of both the world's .

The car is currently tuned for mileage it is giving me about 10 - 12 in the city yet to take it out on the highway and test.

Hey Psycho,

Car looks cool man....although its missing one thing.....a team-bhp sticker!!
Looks like its riding really high!

ALL the conti owners i know have the same steering wheel (which doesnt come stock right..?) is it the only alternative from HM?

Hey Keshav,
I see, you've gone back to the old metal bumper to start with. As Rehaan said, a Team-bhp sticker is the only thing that's missing.
Rehaan, this is the stock steering wheel for the GLX model. The old 2 spole steering was discontinued after 1995.
Addy.

Hey Sweet looking Contessa! Those are some high profile tyres, but I love the meaty looking rpm gauge. With all those mods, is it really fast? Ripped some Japs in racing?

I havent taken on any major cars as yet and do not plan to till I get the new carb in place as the car currently is not getting enough airflow to the head.

The current company Mikuni carb from the orignal isuzu engines does not seem to have it in it even after porting and setting the second butterfly to open mechanically. Hope that the Solex 4a1 works out have started work on the manifold and it will take about a week before I can say that the plan worked or not.

Hey Andy any ideas on the gearbox coz the shifts especially on 1-2 and 2-3 are appaling they are too close...
