ENGINE DESIGN is now heavily involved in the rebuilding
of WORLD RALLY IMPREZA, GPA A and GPN, engine units.
In 2003 GEOFF JONES had a win in GPN on WALES RALLY
GB and a very creditable 18th OVERALL.
GEOFF recently won THE PLAINS RALLY overall on the
25 Sept 2005 in JOHN LLOYD’S GPA IMPREZA another
one of our units.

OWEN’S, GREENERGY SUBARU and IUAN REES in his GPN
NICK KENNY has recently acquired the ex JULIAN REYNOLDS
GPA IMPREZA, we have just freshened the unit which
NICK is very pleased with.
We are at the moment developing our own management
system for the SUBARU along with RACETECH DEVS LTD,
incorporating VVT technology, water spray, water
injection, launch control , anti lag, diff control
etc. We can also accommodate the older versions
of this engine.
work is our speciality along with cams, bigger valves
and OMEGA forged pistons we can produce a very competitive

Latest unit of interest is the MANIC BEATTIE, an
extremely innovative 4 wheel drive CLUBMANS type
chassis designed by NIC MANN of the famous ROVER
V8 TURBO MOGGY fame. We designed a special 1700
BDT unit with special cylinder head, bronze gas
sealing rings and other trick bits, to produce at
the moment around 400bhp.This unit is blown with
an HELICOPTER TURBINE, which is mounted in the car
and uses it’s own fuel system to produce boost which
remains at a constant pressure at all times, is
then fed into the BDT, permanent boost! NO LAG.
This unit was mapped on our dyno using a RACE
TECH DEVELOPMENTS ecu with a 6 layer mapping facility
with fantastic results. NIC has just broken the
20 year old unlimited sports car record at SHELSLEY
WALSH with a 26.43 second run.
