Hi yes I it is white, I had a red B16 powered one before that. It is in bits at the moment I am repairing the rear wheel archs as they were rusted and at the same time polybushing the suspension. I only have a few pics at the moment.

Spec is: B20b block, crank and rods with Wiseco forged pistons 11.4:1 compression ratio, B16a1 head ports cleaned up. ITR cams and uprated Valve springs/titanium retainers. SRS 2.5" manifold, sport cat and adapted Magnex exhaust from a Rover 220 turbo. Prelude Injectors. It is yet to be mapped properly but it made 183 hp as it is before I changed to the bigger exhaust

Y1 LSD box will be changed back to Y2 with M factory LSD as I find the Y1 to low geared. Also waiting to be fitted is a Skunk2 70mm throttle body.

It does not have the splitter on any more it was too low for the cornish roads.

Very nice 8)

You sticking with the B16A1 inlet, the A2 ones are much better as well as the ITR ones and can be had for not so much.

I am not sure on the manifold yet I will probably just open out the A1 one to match the throttle body. I actually have a book that reckons the A1 one is just as good.

The mounts are original D series with adapters made to fit. The cambelt end adaptor is just 1/4 inch plate with holes drilled to go between the engine and mount. The gear box side I took bit of D series bracket and the full B series bracket and welded them together and the T bracket is done simularly. Then the front mount on the gearbox is a B series one and I fabricated a bracket on the front cross member which I had cut about an inch out the back off and plated the resulting gap. Ecu is a chipped PWO (standard VT) the Concerto was never updated to OBD1 so a fairly simple fit.

I forgot to mention is has the MG brake upgrade front and back and a Koni suspension kit intended for a Rover 216.

Tidy! Nice little spec list too.

I have a Y1 now on my VT, and I don't really notice much difference TBH.

Hi Marc it is Dave, I dont know if my Y1 has got original gearing but it seems to be much lower geared that the Y2 I had before. It might just be that because I changed it when I did the B20 conversion and the increased torque is making it feel lower geared. Maybe I need to find 1.8Vti box but then I have to convert to hydrolic.

Yeh could be. Theres only 0.133 in the FD, and the Y1 does have a slighly longer first.

I've got a S9B going in with my B20, been told by loads that an S9B in much more suited with the longer gears.
