    Hi, here is another Zakspeed replica project, being built the latest 4-5 years here in Sweden.
    Still some work to do :) (especially paint, plastic work, finishing touch work, I started in the other end compared to Paul here)

    Will be a road-going car, with MOT.

    Almost everything is changed from original, (except the roof) ;)
    engine is a 4 cyl pinto 8valve with turbo, gearbox: type 9 with straight cut gear internals,
    It has a sierra Cosworth rear axle,

    Some pic's:

    Welcome to CP from Finland too.

    Have followed this project from Tazzemans forum too. Very nice build. Love the rear axle conversion.

    The conversion work alone on the back end is something to envy if ever I saw anything to envy :sleepy:

    Nick, there's far too many euroland type peeps coming on here with their bloody good projects of late....cant you impose a sort of 'euro tax' on em' to keep em' out! :banana:

    Thanks everyone for nice words,

    And yes .. We Scandinavian vikings once again will conquer and invade the world :) haha
    And Cashy we already have so extreme taxes in our countries, that's why we come here :)

    I hope to be finished to the spring, a lot of work is done, but of course some things has to be redone,
    because it's all custom and never tried in reality. I remade all the turbo-setup because the old turbo was bad, so I made a new downpipe, and headers,
    Working now on a bigger rear spoiler, Zak-style.

    It has 788cc injectors, with Megasquirt 2 engine management system, also controls the EDIS-ignition,
    The Sierra rear-axle idea actually came from another swede here 'therealpinto' with this car: http://www.capripower.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/25842-1974-mkii-20-turbo-capri/
    and it was tons of work to make it fit..

    Yes chriscapriman the intake is totally custom as most other things is, Original parts or normal tuning parts does not fit then building this kind of project,
    For example: the pinto engine does fit exactly, with just a few mm up and below the engine left, (hard to show on the pics.

    The biggest challenge was to make it low enough, I achieved 18cm after trying many tricks, actually I needed 20cm, but it is not possible without a space-frame,
    Therefore I inserted around 3-4cm extra in the 4 wings, (above the wheels) for making it look lower, (for better stance)
    The whole drive-train is located 8cm higher up in the car,

    Some more pic's:

    A little update, trying to finish to the summer,
    Rear wing almost completed, missing paint + some details,
    and to make the engine run better,
    Will soon also be bigger wheels and new engine-management.

    Very well done Magnus. Obviously a lot of planning has gone into this to allow the car to be lowered properly. Credit to you

    Hi Magnus, am I right in thinking that gives you up to 100mm (4") drop but retains proper steering geometry and damping. Very impressive work, bet you spent sometime working everything out :thumbup1:/>

    Wicked job on that! I've gone down the same compression strut route too and it really stiffens up the front doesn't it ! Although I welded a drop link onto the tca and retained the old anti roll bar, I suppose being as low as that the anti roll bar in yours will end up pointing up at the sky!!

    Yes, I been thinking of an anti-roll bar solution, and it needs to be a custom one, placed much higher up than the original, and wider. will start to work on it, but now have some engine overheating problems ..

    Still paint remains and MOT
    Will be a white base with some red/black details on and racing style, but not Wurth-style as everyone else is doing that,

    Yes, the black and blue looks cool, just not sure how it would match my interior,
    I'm thinking more something like the 1983 Pentosin Capri:

    I'm pretty sure they are Image Wheels (custom built 3 piece split rims).

    Thanks :)

    The kit is from CCI (UK), but I changed it a lot myself because there were things that did not look right + I added a modification on the wings so the car looks lower,

    I built the rear spoiler myself, where was none to buy, so I had to :)
    Took several months, still some finishing touch to be done,
    I wish I had done it with carbon-fibre, because it came out too heavy

    Wow this really sits well ... Did you modify the arches by moving them down slightly or is it the suspension set (lovely!) that sat it down as it is , there is another on here thats gorgeous but doesn't sit quite as well. :thumbup1:

    Yes NorwegianCapriNut, definitely Elmia next year :)

    Yes Doc Octane, I lowered the arches around 30mm all around to get the impression of a lower car. (it cannot get as low as the racer unless a spaceframe built)
    It is very important that it sits right yes. The suspension is adjustable and it will be a bit more low than on the pic.
    The chassi is changed a lot with all suspension mounts higher up on the car.

    Not a huge fan of "body kits" per se......until now! That all comes together doesn't it as a "race car". Can just see that going round a track!

    You don't want to be bringing it to the UK though unless it's on a trailer! Our potholes would kill it with that ground clearance!

    CliCon357 :) thanks, yes the car is less about the body-kit and more about what's behind, (all the work is behind),

    Had some technical problems on the race-track, but managed to drive some laps;

    Me too, from inside, when I drove it :)
    It's the best place, the long turn before the long straight, it is just to go full throttle up to about 180km/h on fourt gear and when hard on the brakes before it turns 90 degrees right
    I want to go back, and go faster,
