Future Plans for the 600D

The purpose of this page is to capture the different ideas I have for future modifications for the 600.  I’m not sure which, if any, I’ll get to, but here they are:

1. Install the 903cc motor and front mounted radiator and shroud for the needed additional cooling.

Nameless Performance made this radiator for me out of an intercooler. The bottom three rows are for oil cooling. All the rest of the rows are for coolant. This design makes more sense to me than the right/left split.

I had them add bracket bolts and an air-bleeder up top, then anodized black.

2. Install MegaSquirt and the throttle body injection from a 1990 Honda Civic.

3. Ditch the distributor and install the Ford EDIS system. The EDIS information I would recommend first is: Ford EDIS technical information and then EDIS Ignition Control with MegaSquirt-II (if you’re using MegaSquirt).

4. Acquire an 8-port cylinder head, PBS, Astech, or Vizza, it doesn’t matter, and install the throttle bodies from a 2000 Honda CBR900RR.

  1. I install a Mazda RX7 oil cooler up front and it’s low profile doing a good job,now am interested to know about this Audi / VW 5 speed gear box which model and year ? I have a upull junk yard that I can visit, any info will greatly appreciate B R Lenny

    • Oh Sorry Leonardo Mangiolino just look in once or twice…. The VW Passat 32B and Audi 80 are using a gearbox that is placed in line, but then with the engine in front. VW-engine’s turn to the right…. So if you either turn the gearbox 180 degrees or make the 600-engine run to the left like the 850 engine, it could be coupled to the VW-box. Then the wheels do run in the right direction on the 600/850. The VW-box has Rzeppa-flanges and is a real sturdy bastard. It also uses short finaldrives ( at least in de VW Passat 32B ) Of course this is no easy fit, but it is done by people like Guy Moerenhout, welding the bellhousing to turned box, and coupling it with the TwinCam’s…..In fact, Anita Cusens in South Afrika is using a 1400 pushrod engine coupled to a Audi 5-speed transaxle in racing overthere… She is on Facebook. I don’t know if they have foto’s… One thing for sure, the Audi B4 gearbox is a bit shorter then the VW 32B one….
