    That is nothing new as the Capri was modified in many way back in the day in South Africa and in fact were even raced in South Africa with bitter rivalry between Ford and General Motors

    Nice to see the 3 valve engine being used, the exhaust looks like it got mashed pretty bad, didn’t help the dyno numbers I’m sure.

    What a great conversion. The Capri was always an amazing car. You modification has mad it even more amazing. To sit behind the wheel of that car would truly be a dream.

    It’s a pity about the look of the exhaust. Looks like it’s hit a speed bump or two. Not good for viewing. That ought to have been repaired before pics were taken of the underside.

        The first exhaust was unfortunetely smashed with exploding driveshaft on the dyno… all is fixed and done and the car is happy at home with its owner already
