hmm well it’s RHD so I guess it’s not an original G60..rhd g60 conversion?
I wonder what gearbox/transfer box & exhaust down pipe it has, there are no piccys from under the bonnet.
I messaged him years ago and he said it has the standard exhaust Manifold (RHD 1.8 carb). Not sure what gearbox it is running though.
oh yikes. the standard GU downpipe on a G60? that doesn’t sound great but I guess it would work..sorta. Never even worked particularly well on the original GU.
I actually ran my g60 with the GU manifold and downpipe, it worked fine, but I never had it on a dyno so I couldn’t confirm how much it restricted power!
interesting. so was that the RHD downpipe or the LHD one? the LHD standard syncro downpipe is pretty decent (i think I have one somewhere) – 2 smooth pipes and little restriction, whereas the RHD one is with the round connector with clips and the flattened section.
Yeah it was the standard RHD GU cast manifold with the toilet bowl opening into the down pipe, held together with 2 C clamps. this then mated up to a powerflow 2″ stainless system. I did the conversion in relatively short time, I basically pulled out the GU engine and dropped in the PG engine with the intention of revisiting the manifold and down pipe at a later date. I even had a LHD g60 syncro manifold and down pipe I was going to try and adapt.
Unfortunately I melted a piston in the G60 as a result of running a smaller pulley and not chipping the ecu to suit the extra boost.
oh that sucks. sorry to hear it :-\
Thanks, yeah I miss that engine, I replaced it with a 1.8T but the engine does nothing for me, it doesn’t have the same character.
I’ve messaged the guy a couple of times – he’s vague to the point where he doesn’t seem bothered if it sells or not.
It’s a syncro running rear drums and GU running gear. Claims it be running a 2.0 G60 – I have engine bay pics if interested.
In previous conversions I believe he said he wouldn’t take less than £3750…
