SPI cars seem to be very thin on the ground with regards to fuel system components, unless someone knows of a secret source?
This.

Stepper motor ? Throttle pot ? Non-existent (although thankfully a fellow member had a TPS which he let me have for buttons) - in fact the whole throttle body are now in silly money territory - 80 quid upwards

Discussions with a major UK parts supplier are on-going and I'm now trying to gauge the pent-up demand for some of the 'high priority' items on our list. Such as...

T-series engine mounts - No. 5, 10 and 14 in this diagram

T-series Coolant pipes

No.13 and 14 in this diag.

and No.18/19 in this diag

If new OE-spec parts where to available at sensible aftermarket prices who would be looking to buy parts?
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

These ones? https://www.vibra-technics.co.uk/mg_rov ... urbo_92_95

They're labelled road/race. Are they so rigid that you regret fitting them (too much vibration)?? As some people seem to regret fitting the poly K series mounts sometimes...
