Went to visit Joe Thompson today, owner of a black phase1 106 Rallye, but with something a bit different shoved in the front of it.
The car started life with a 1.3 8v 100 bhp engine. This was swapped for a 106 gti unit, with 76,000 miles on it. It was fully rebuilt, and had a custom inlet manifold made for it by Bogg Brothers, so that R6 bike throttle bodies could be used. A 4-2-1 exhaust manifold and full stainless were bolted on, then it was off for a full set up at Mikeanics, to get the most out of the engine using the KMS mangement system.
