1) New Sequential Gear Box In
2) Upgraded Lotus Engine Fitted.
3) Omex Throttle Bodies on.
After a delayed start, while waiting for a 334bhp Mk1 Fiberglass Escort to come off the Rolling Road which was truly exceptionally built, the Pick Up made it's way onto the RR.
We were reminded just how this wee Pick Up has fought all the way as it revealed a few little gremlins. These we overcome but leave us with some little things to correct.
For those of you who have witnessed a vehicle on the RR you know that the Technicians have little disregard for your car as they seek to achieve the best set up.
So when they take it to a high RPM and hold it there you can start to grimace a little and hold your breath.! On the flip side, and in this case, when it's taken to 7000 RPM it does sound very smooth and sweet.
Due to a noise curfew we were unable to complete the tune, which in this case is a good thing as it will allow for the little items to be rectified.
However, by just having a partial tune it's revealed a BIG improvement on the original setup and has already given an insight in turning the Pick Up from an Angry little Ute into an Ute that is now RAGING.
HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A MORRIS MINOR PICK UP POWERED BY LOTUS....
So if you see a Light Blue MM Pick Up approaching fast in your Rear View Mirror, make sure you either cover your ears or, listen to the smooth screaming sound it delivers.
