What is the engine code? Is there mechanical fuel injection? It doesn't look like a k-jet or digifant.
It looks like a carb so not any of the above, is that moving freely? Did the throttle cable come off at any point? Carb cleaner....

Cheers guys,

Fitted one of these as mine was leaking.

Oil filter housing.

And the coilovers are mega poo and are so soft and bouncy so ive had to raise the suspension until i can buy some new cheap ones.

Rolled arches

Rolled arch.

How she looks now after a clean.

Well here is a little update

DSC_0574

Spotted it?

DSC_0576

Shiny

Had a stainless system made up by Top Gear in Aylesbury. Unsure whether I like it yet might go back and get them to make the tailpipe bigger, what y'all think?

And bashed the rear arches about today so I could go lower.

Going down...

Off to find some tigerseal now
