4age in need of a rebuild - advice on where

Hi all

I have a 4age red top on twin dellortos which is using some oil when hot plus it had been in the car for about 10 years.

So time to get a hone and refresh. Google hasnít really throw up any one for the task.

Hence this post to see if there are recommendations to get the work done.

Thanks
Mark

Cougar Engineering Redditch.

Looks after several of the 4AGE powered cars in the hillclimb/sprint scene - amongst others too.

How deep are your pockets? Richard Macer does some good stuff with the 4AGE but it won't be cheap.

Where - The Kitchen? Nice flat surface once you remove the tablecloth. Built in parts washer.

You are just taking it apart and putting it back together again....what is hard about that!

Thanks Gents.

I give them a call. Cougar is interesting as I wanted an MSA cage for it

theshed - there isnít a kitchen table and using dining table wonít extend life. Workbench is possible but full hence get it done.

Hi

Cougar (Nigel BTW) had done most of the cages for the Strikers in speed events too - including the one in my photo archive, highly recommended for both bits.

I only know Cougar of the ones mentioned, but I would recommend Nigel in a heartbeat. A sound, decent bloke. He sorted out a problem with my 4AGE very reasonably.

Sounds like the right bloke to rebuild my 20v and map it for me if I ever get around to it!





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

A little follow up

NIgel rebuilt it in 2018 plus tidied up a few bits. Very neat and kept me up to date

It needed boring so as it was apart it acquired new bits cams etc.

Finally got it to the rolling road at Stanton Motorsport - also recommended - last week where it made better than expected power with a nice torque curve.

Very pleased.
