Historic Engine and transmission go to supplier?

Post by Brynmor »

Bit of an open ended question, but if you’re looking for a cost effective Engine / transmission ready to go for HSCC type racing who’s the best people have found?
As much as I’d like to look at Swiftune I’m also acutely aware on the price there sadly.

Be interested to hear both purchasing and running costs :)

I’d start with Oz (OAP) , Southam , Phil Anning, and Dave Wells (SH Engineering) just for starters.

Engine wise I would choose Scholars, although you would think Ford or K series one of the builders Ray is hot on A series

Oz at OAP is definitely your man. His work speaks for itself.

Totally. There’s absolutely no doubting you ultimately get what you pay for and Swiftune’s reputation for engine performance and longevity has been proved on track for many years. Horses for courses.
