    If I can start the IVA list with a couple of points-

    1) Radius end on tail pipe
    2) Emissions, how do you intend to approach this? Do you have a V5 doc that tallies to the new engine?

    Regards
    Thanks for your comments Craig. I will check on what is planned regarding the tailpipe. I have read elsewhere that the tailpipe should have a radius if it protrudes from the bodywork by more than 10mm, however the exhaust is underneath the rear body work, not protruding through it. I assume this will mean it needs a radius?

    We have a V5 that tallies with the engine, the Beta HPE was scraped but this was never declared to the DVLA. From what I have read on the forum, this seems to be the right way to go so as to retain the V5.


    Thanks, Michael

    Thanks Cadami, yeah we're well aware there are a lots of requirements for the IVA. If anything, it would be good to pass first time simply because the closest test facility is now Norwich after Ipswich closed last year - bit of a trek to do twice.

    Cheers, Michael

    The exhaust will be contactable so will require a radiused end, they use a cone to determine the plan of the body & it goes a long way under the boot panel of a Stratos replica due to the height of the bodywork.

    Good news on having a V5 which tallies to the engine, double check that the engine number on the doc is the same as the one on the block, also make sure that you can read the number on the block easily & that it doesn't look to have been tampered with in any way. You will therefore be emissions tested on the age of the engine rather than having to meet a current emissions standard.

    When you have passed the IVA test & gone through the rigmarole with the DVLA you should then be issued with a new V5 doc which has a previously unused registration from the year of the donor car.

    Thanks for all the info Craig, all very helpful.

    I guess something will have to be done about the tailpipe as, from looking in the IVA manual, there's no way of satisfying a radius curvature of 2.5mm at present.

    Yes all good about the engine, specifically on the emissions front. I could imagine trying to meet modern emissions on a Beta TC to be challenging if we did not have the V5.

    Thanks, Michael

    Hi Enzo, thanks for your kind words.

    Yes I have seen a pic of your 131 - it looks awesome. Have you got any videos of the car on Youtube? It would be great to see some.

    Guy Croft has done all the work to the engine, he has said on his forum that it will produce 187bhp. Is your 131 in a similar state of tune to this? Here are some pics of the engine during build:

    He guys,

    Some pics below of the ally fuel tanks loosely fitted during summer 2013. The left-hand tank holds 45 litres (9.9 gallons) whilst the right-hand holds 39 litres (8.7 gallons), totaling 84 liters (18.7 gallons). At 25mpg (here's wishing), the car's distance would be 467miles. Fuel pump can also be seen loosely fitted.

    And then again over Christmas 2013. Accusump can be seen on the right with external oil filter mount. Battery tray can just been seen to the left of the left-hand fuel tank. Also pic of the Mocal laminova loosely fitted.

    So that's a power to weight ratio that exceeds a lot of V6s?

    Could well be. I'm not sure of all the weights of a Beta TC engine and chassis versus a V6 engine and chassis. Perhaps someone else on here would know? Would be interesting to find out.
