    Re: Guy Croft

    Guy built my 8V engine. He helped me with so much of the set up. Visits to Guy's workshop were always a pleasure. It was good to have known him.

    Yes, it is a 2.0 litre. It is from a 1978 Lancia Beta. Twin DCOE 45's is what makes the sound special. It makes around 175-180bhp.
