Engine is nearly out! All I need to do is disconnect the gear selector rod, the speedo cable and the driveshafts, then I'll put it on the engine crane and remove the engine mounts.
I'm going to repaint the engine while it's out and generally clean it up, I hope to have it in the blue one in a couple of weeks.
I found a reciept for a dyno tune the car had in 2007, the car had 90bhp at the flywheel then. The car has only done 4000 miles since then so it should still be making good power, I wanna get a Weber 40 carb for it eventually to top it off.

Some cleaning + some paint:
Tomorrow I'm going to touch up a few more bits, and repaint the alternator and the thermostat housing in silver.
I also cleaned up and heatwrapped my Maniflow LCB which will be fitted with the engine.
I've also got a surprise on the way, I'll post pictures Monday if it arrives!
Oh and when I'm paid I shall get rid of that sh*tty yellow rocker cover for one of these:

Plus I'd need to swap the bumpers because the bumper on the yellow one houses the sidelights + indicators, and that's completely f*cked anyway, I'm missing both bumper corners and it's badly dented.

Maniflow twin box exhaust system.
Should sound sweeeet, and hopefully not too loud.

The healthily modded 1275 with a decent exhaust should sound miles better than your old 998 with the magniflow.
