First Drive

First drive today of my car since I changed the engine, well chuffed !!!!

Change my engine from a 2l Pinto to a Triumph Daytona T595 engine, what a difference, took a few miles to get used to the bike engine (and a few stalls at junctions) but it behaved very will and passed it's MOT as well, quality.

Only problem I had was the bolt falling out of the throttle pedal, luckily I had enough tools with me to put it back in and get underway again.

Only have to try and explain to the DVLA about the engine swap and change in tax class..... oh fun..........

Hopefully I'll have it taxed and on the road very soon .

Cheers

Scott

Awesome! I'm very pleased that the Trumpet keeps trumpeting on! Enjoy!

Edited to say - did it pass the emissions part of the MOT without a tweak?
