My orion has been having Omex 600 and Jenvey ITBs fitted to replace the previous carb setup. The car was running DCOM carbs, but these were proving unreliable and were spoiling the car.
Most of the work has been carried out by Phoenix Automotive Technology, including rewiring the entire engine bay with a bespoke loom. They have done a fantastic job.
Sadly, on the final power run, the engine started knocking, so although the work has been done, I am still left with a car that I cannot drive!
I need to decide if I am going to get the bottom end rebuilt, replace it with another bottom end, or change the engine for something else. However, before I get on to that, I am going to complete the rewiring of the instruments and the other interior wiring.
