Re: rebore or resleeve ford 302

I wouldn't recommend either. the old blocks tend to rust from the water jackets into the cylinder bore and re-sleeving will still create water seepage and problems. Best bet is to replace the block.

Re: Capri V8 handling

I think you should remove that and replace one of the leaves with a stronger one will help cure the spring wind and help with the understeer. some of our circuit capris run with just one strong leaf and they handle quite well.

Re: Capri V8 handling

[quote="billyballer"]Hey all,

The back is stock springs lowered 1" with traction bars

are these drag race traction bars or circuit race. If drag race setup, it might be the cause of your understeer

Re: XR8

on the drivers side chassis leg there is a serial number stamped. under the drivers side headlamp will be a body tag saying its a xr8. some of the speedo cluster got v8 printed in red on the top corner. the distributor is in front of the engine and not at the back :lol:
