Lovely car to drive, t’was a bit smokey though! Bought it to replace my unruly little diesel 106 when it started making funny noises (before the days of tweaking, or even checking the levels!). Being a tad into mechanics I did research on the vehicle and engine, and ended up having a ride in a tuned up version, which instantly got me hooked on the idea of tuning.
Torque was never accurately measured due to a slipping clutch, though is a minimum of 200lbft, and on a gentle dyno run pulled 145bhp at well lane turbo centre, west yorkshire.
The vehicles demise, might possibly have been a mistake to be frank. The radiator developed a fault shortly before (minutes) it’s MOT, and the tester found signs of oil leaving the block and a lot of pressure was placed on me to scrap it. This was done in an eventful fashion which involved a forklift truck and a hedge, and the few enthusiastic gypsies it fed for the coming months. (They love their scrap).
