Possibly an old topic, pls excuse my poor search :shrug: Got an US spec S1.5 OTS that I plan to Europeanise ... The replacement of 2x Stromberg and 3,54 final gear are obvious ... but what else need to be replaced to recreate a “real” 265hp European driveline spec? Are the cam shafts, distributor et...
