    ive got a welded diff already and seats are in, only thing i need are some nice seatbelts, the rear springs are already in the front and ive got some scorpio rear springs in the back, the car is lowered 3 coils @ the front i think, @ the back i dont know :p the only thing i know is that this car goes sideways where i want :)

    Just practice with it , till the power limits you from advancing. Then either swap a 24v cosworth or buy a bmw! :D

    Assuming it's a 2l pinto with a carb, should be easy to get a bit more power out of it, cam it, get a bigger carb on, etc. Plenty of info on pinto tuning floating around. Have a look on trampdrift as well IIRC they have a little section on sierra/capri drifting.

    There's not a lot in the way of tuning the DOHC engines cheaply. Occasionally reflashed ecus and the odd bits come up on the owners club forum (fsoc forum). There a lad on there that's done a good turbo conversion and others that have done hybrid engines with 2.3 dohc bits. I went 24v when I killed my dohc . Not a bad conversion but reliable gearbox is the main problem. In all honesty a .ca or Sr conversion is the best bet and has been done a few times before. The 24v is heavy, old, expensive for bits and a bit tempremental. If you can get a t5 box and prop you can get adapter plates for most popular engine conversions off the shelf.

    As for more lock.... have a read in this thread.. http://www.driftworks.com/forum/drifting-chat/173453-all-hail-mooseman-drift-garage.html

    Other than turboing the engine with megasquirt or some kind of stand alone ecu there is literally no point doing anything to get power from the engine. Obviously exhaust and filter aside as they are pence to make up.

    My local engine tuner used to have a 2.0 injection block sat on the floor as somewhere to stick an airline into. He always said that its the most useful thing the engine has ever done for him lol.
