Hi Craig /All at SBD
To start I’m just going to say thank you for supplying an engine that does what it says on the box more than happy. Ordered a full 210 package with some extras and had 209.4, if I’m correct BHP @ 8300 and still pulling which was very nice to see. Also a big than you to Martin Jones the engine builder for assembling a brilliant little engine.
Spec of the car:
The car was originally built by Harry Hockley as a one off for a customer in Ireland JJ Wall, also running an SBD 225 engine (which he will now campaign in his MK2 Escort later this year). So much time and thought was put into the car, it is pleasure to see and work on and hopefully take further.
