Starting Fiat X1/9 Engine.
Starting my recently restored and modified Fiat X1/9 engine for the first
time since we dragged it out off a field in Ohio. We added a four port
intake, Duoletta carbs, lightened the flywheel, remove emmission controls
and the AC, 1500 block (retains 4 speed gearbox), as well we added a euro
cam along with a racing distributor and gave it some other tweaks to
increase HP. We're very pleased with the results!
