zombie289 WOW Phil, WOW... I think I'll just keep saying WOW! ....WOW..... Cant wait to see this thing in the flesh at the 2012 Cortina Nats Phil????
fehlbiePhil, she looks awesome...
Admin Let me know when you are going to the track. My MR2 is just about ready to go back out again. Were you thinking of a practice day at Eastern Creek? BTW just about all of my panels are now carbon fibre
T_MarkAbsolutely the best cortina ever.
darnoldrs Looking better and better all the time Phil. Good to see that you have been able to continue to on progress over the last couple of years. I have not even touched mine in 2 years. Hope to be back soon thou. Will you be making the migration to melbourne for SFS2012 ?? Might see you there so see this in the flesh at last.
esc-078 Wow! looks fantastic Phil. Good work. I'm not being neg, but the brake lines really do stand out. Is there any reason, either mechanical, rules or laws that one couldn't route them on the other side of the firewall and through the inner guards? Kinda like hiding the wiring in the engine bay?
esqrt Phil,this is an awesome build,great looking car. Its a real credit to you
Phil And the grin on Loundes's face as he signed this last Friday proves he still bleeds BLUE!!
Robb Great car & workmanship. The Mk1 Cortina had great styling and you've really added 21st century mechs to it. One point I noticed that may be different between Qld and NSW rego requirements was the door bars on the rollcage. Will they pass inspection ok? I thought door bars were tricky to have for a roadgoing project. Certainly need them to stop that motor taking off on it's own!
maxrs TWO BIG THUMBS UP! and that's just for the oil pressure light. So the engine ignition spark will cut out once you loose oil pressure?
ratta tat tat Looking fantastic phil! Do the injectors and fuel pump need uprating for that turbo? I guess a tune will tell
ESCORTWIL145 Phil, that is one fantastic looking Mk1 Corty, could be the best I have seen. Well done great stuff.
ossie cossie Is it Antilag throttle body?
cortinarobI'm interested in the front. I see you retained the original struts but had adapters made to allow for escy tcas.Do you have drawings for the adapters you could share? For me this is by far the best way I have seen for converting to rack and pinion.Thanks in advance, Rob
BUZ440Huge fan of your Cortina for a while Phil, thank you for sharing and watch her grow Its always hard to stand out from the crowd, and the minor details that add personality, top work, What pedal box do you use, and cylinder sizes to pump those massive calipers, unboosted also yeah?
itchyLooking good there Phil.
CalebThose wheels are nice.. can you please tell me what is the name of those wheels because i am also thinking to buy them. The are shiny and also very attractive. but is that easy to clean them, because I think those cuts are hard to clean from inner side!.
esky79Jus a quick question... R the standard cossie inlet manifolds that good? I jus seem to notice every 1 making decent power still runs them and not many people get a custom 1 made or aftermarket etc...
PhilThe head is still waiting for porting, but as of yesterday all other machining is done, ready for assembly after porting:)
PhilJust need to install the guides, cut the seats and set the clearances!!
