This is what happened the black BX:

It's not quite complete yet, need to fix a mount up for the drivers side, and make an exhaust manifold.

It will be running Adaptronic EMS. Just to give me a bit of a change! I have emerald in the 16V, AEM in the MR2 and used Link in it in the past - also megasquirt and megajolt in various projects.

Mmm, a V6 BX? I thought it couldn't be done due to space shortages, unless you plan on chopping the engine bay about? A V6 BX does sound rather attractive though... I'll be watching with interest, i'd also like to see you 14 (got a thing for 14's).

There's a lot of work to do to it to get it right, but it definitely can be done.

I'm still trying to work out how you got the engine out of the back car without removing half the things I had to remove!

What's in the red car? D6C or DFW?

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

You sure that's a £40 restoration?

Nice work though. How are the throttle bodies on the 16v?
