Finally someone doing a 262c right!

Paint is awesome. Looks almost like subaru's Java Black Pearl.

Thank you guys, I really appreciate your comments!

And the engine setup looks like this:
- B23 block, now B25 ?
- Wiseco 96,50mm pistons
- crankshaft engineered and polished to a 85mm stroke
- 152mm H beam connecting rods
- B234F 16V head with GLT cams and stiffer valve springs
- Delphi 998cc injectors in plenum manifold
- exhaust manifold from KL Racing
- Garrett GT35R turbo
- aluminium 4" core intercooler
- KMS MP25 engine management system

My friend (who writes here too sometimes, thank you JuhaU !) assembled the engine for me, he also engineered the "potholes" to the pistons!

Also:
- lightweight flywheel balanced with a SRE -618 pressure plate from BMW M3
- M90 transmission with reinforced synchro rings in 3rd
- 1031 rear axle with Detroit Truetrac diff

And some pictures of course:

So it looks like this under the hood now.



Here is the tiny stainless clutch fluid reservoir:



I also test fitted the intercooler:

Haha, I am so relieved that you found a name for them "things" !

These technical terms are taking me to the very limits of my already limited English skills. But then I just keep on googling...

Im agreeing with many on this. I'm not usually a fan of Bertones at all, I think the widebody and that crazy awesome iridescent black/gold and super wide wheels make this thing. sub'ed!

I suspect you're going to keep the motor canted with that GT35 under the hood?

A short look at his site shows that this 262C isn't his only project http://www.volvere.fi/

weird, I always thought 262s were way cooler than 242s. it looked beautiful before you even touched it-- but wow! amazing build so far.

How is it that if you live in Scandinavia, you have access to every single tool in the world and an unlimited budget?

Awesome build. I love the Widebody with the more squarish Bertone styling.
