I am very impressed with this.

Cant help thinking that engine would be quite useful in a Mini Marcos.

To answer the original question: Yes, the standard rocker covers will accommodate all the high lift rocker gears. The alloy aftermarket ones, including the MG Metro cover will almost all need to be relieved somewhere on the inside for full clearance. The one on your car is always the cheapest and yo...

No Flapping. They are a good fit, with a little slack - sufficient to allow some air to circulate. Also have 2 fixing straps which pass under the car to secure.

The SU is a good one, fit it in the boot, close to the tank outlet or you could try the small Facet solid state. You will ne...
