Since you didn't list any other mods:
* high comp pistons
* get head decked
* port/polish
* oversized valves
* headers
* exhaust
* LSD
* slicks
* remove all your dead weight! your interior weighs 140 lbs!

Trim out 100kg...some mild cams and cam gears...and make sure you fit a decent-sized airbox to your carbs that is fed by cold air, not by hot underbonnet air. Firm up that back suspension to help prevent weight transfer and get some decent sticky tyres, as well.

Hi,

I think "get head decked" means that machined to increase compression ratio.
What CR can you safely run with 95 octan petrol?
Get yourself a mk1 dizzy otherwise I don't think your car will run.
How about fuel pressure?
Did you get your injection fuel pump swapped to low pressure item?
You will need to have pressure regurator, since most of bikes are run gravity feed not pumped so any pump set up will need to run with regurator.
I think you need to get your car drivable before you start to mod all in one go.
Otherwise, you will be having fun time solving faults.
May be you might get lucky.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Cheers
Atchi
