Yeah they are good for towing I must admit.
You notice that the mpg only drops about 2 miles when towing, now that's a good tow car.

Hey just out of interest whats the most you seen on the speedo?

Hmm well I was going to put a video up for you to guess what has been done to the car for it to do 160 mph on the speedo  
But it sounds like it's not that impressive  Only seen 150 mph before down abit of a hill.

Does yours pull straight upto 160 or does it struggle abit?

Will have to re-record the vid to see if I can get 170 out of it  

& before anyone says it I know we are not really going that quick

colin
i would expect at least £250 for a "conversion kit" , that is down pipes, lambda's ecu loom edis 6 coil pack AFM,,,

dont forget the dif is also a good unit to sell, front brakes and antiroll bars, all sell well!!!

mind the leathers have little value now as so many have been broken!

the one i have so far has cost me nothing now selling all the spare bits,, i got the engine/box etc for free!

If the bodywork is still good people still pay good money for the old girls but if not then as Tony says.
