    R8/10/12 Sierra performance parts

    No, it isn't an oxymoron.

    Rob XXXXXXXXX is reproducing Lynx crossover manifolds with a side draft Dellorto and Sonic extractors for R8/10/12 models fitted with Sierra motors (not for 15/16/17/18 alloy motors). He is looking for firm orders. Also looking at reproducing Gotti alloy wheels.

    Further information, phone Rob on 0XXX XXX XXX.

    Don't send replies for further info to this message as Rob doesn't have access to a computer.

    I'd just like to comment that I drove a R12 1.4 litre fitted with a Lynx cross over manifold with a 45mm DCOE Weber, as well as a wilder cam and modified head (exhaust manifold was standard). The torque this engine had was amazing. Very impressive. I actually think it went better than the R17TL engined 12 wagon that I drove a week earlier.

    From what I've read the cross over manifolds are designed for good low to mid range performance, but are no good for 6000rpm+ competition engines, since they run out of breathing capacity. They are EXCELLENT for road cars though.
