so where are you going to locate the radiator ?
up front or above the engine, my kinroad buggy that has a Nissan micra engine has the radiator above the engine right behind my earoles has always worked perfectly but it has concerned me that if the rad split I would get showered with very hot water, think I will have a front mounted rad if I am starting from scratch

That has always been a concern of mine when I have seen them, although it's very unlikely to hit by something that would puncture it & logically if it was a small weep you'd spot it. I also prefer the rearward vision

I will most likely go with the radiator above the engine along with the intercooler and oil cooler, it worked well before and to help the rear view I fitted twin rear cameras which were fantastic

yeah that looks very similar, all the blocks look similar but i can see the 20v turbo bit on the plastic so i would say yes - if you take the plastic bit off infront of the wipers you should see the ecu - and as wagon said before check you accelerator pedal its probably only got a plug and a few wires going to it so youll need that too

Hahaha!

From here it looks like a DBW throttle body
If you take off the plastic cover youll find the engine code too

yer it does look a bit unloved doesn't it, it been off the road for over 10 years I think, maybe a bit longer,
its outside next doors stables at the moment it was inside their barn for many years but was thrown outside a little while ago when they needed the space, it was going in a mk 1 caddy pick up but it never happened
will take the forklift down the lane today and bring it up to mine and give it a jet wash and see what we have.
will start my own thread as well to save cluttering up this one
