Yea... my friend had some high lift camshaft too(from euro race parts 288' sounds right). His engine started out as a 1.6L factory motor. Then he kept mod'ing it. It grew to 82mm pistons and an offset grind crank(88mm I think). Then he had put NOS on it and had a back fire... he then melted a piston so he went with 83.5mm pistons and that 88mm crank. I think that gave him 1868cc of engine. He had put a GTi (4K ?) gearbox in it too. I just remember his car was fast! Always 15.0 flat or 15.2's in the quarter at 92 mph. And he never had enough money to put a quaife in there! lol

That car was his pride and joy until his wife made him get rid of it. women.
