hey there
this is Tim form south africa. was searching for g/box codes and came across this wicked site. really cool to find a site devoted to caddy's.

i got one myself. its a '85. bought it about 1 1/2yrs ago. its since got a 1.8 8v slapped in, gas-flowed, inlet and zorst manifolds ported, valves swirled, 276 billet cam, free flow and branch and lastly weber 36DCD carb. will soon be changing to a 40DCOE sidey and then slap in some 83.5mm pistons and 2.0l crank. after that will source a set of 45 sideys. makes decent power, last dyno was 84kw ATW on the coast 174nm. have made some changes since though, think it might be just on 90kw ATW.

well thats my story and i hope 2 enjoy my stay here. oh and i see a pic of my caddie in the galleries under red caddies, its hiding in the background.

FI dude, and homegrown FI at that, It's a Mr. Turbo system and I don't have any complaint's about it at all!
Man, what I wouldn't give to be in the mother city now! (even with the hail)

cool stuff man, see you a SAC's fan eh...topsports just brought out their own FI, sounds quite good, great support for 60-2 pickup and wasted spark.

shot for the comments guys, its desert glow-the colour. thinkin of a respray of some other wacky colour i can put 2getha. but thats after the next power increase. actually theres a lot i need to sort out on the car first, toe & camber on the backs a bit stuffed, wana fit some new traxion coil-overs, need a new box or to get my current 4Y 2nd sychro sorted. its a high compression motor so im running permanently on 102.6 so yeah petrol/gas is costing me alot every month-too much actually (having to cut down on black labels soon!!!)

anyhow
