Looks like it's going to be a killer ride aswell with the 2.4 in the back....

Cheers,

Which Koni shocks (part number for ordering if you please) are you using front and rear? Also, do you have any pics of your Ghia from the rear? I'd like to see it's stance from another angle. I'm considering a set of Cup IIs and would like a better idea of how they look on the Ghia.

Thanks

sure is

Its on the road (persay) been runnng up and down the back streets here in Germany getting all the bugs worked out.
Better here than when I take it through inspection.

Was out last weekend, blew the valve cover gaskets on both sides.
I built the motor with the help of my friend Martin, you might remember him, he had the convertable eggplant color bug that was blowing flames and pushing way over 300 ps.
Pics of his bug are posted here.

The Tranny is from Martin Bott and its great to say the least.
I've tried shifting at 6.5 on the gears, they are holding dead fast.

I do have some problems with the 44 webers, cant get them tuned just right.

Where did you get those side view mirrors? They match up really nicely.

I think the title says it all

Sorry guys I have been out of the loop for a while.
Started working down here in Colombia South America for the past 5 months.
The car is being stored with my folks in Sequim WA. It's going to get a color change and have the motor re-freshed, just some things were to wild for it, like the cam (wont idle below 1200 rpm), I got it running before I left Germany and I took it out for a spin, its a beast but I had to cut the ride short (no seat belts and tags- the German police really look down on that thing )
