What exact motor is it? There are differences between 131, beta vx and 037 motors as you well know. The price seems pretty steep for a stock beta vx motor. Here in NZ a complete vx motor sells for about 1k nz so about 400 quid. Repowering the 131 Parrish?
Would be nice but at the moment im stuck for space to do anything, ill be seeing what i can do with the current set up first before i go doing anything as drastic as an engine swap. Ill be putting a 132 axle with a disc brake set up before i increase the engine output, plenty of 132's in Spain, i already know where the donnor car is! Its going to loose its boot carpet as well.
