Tim’s Tiger Super Six Blog

My name is Tim and this is a Blog about my Tiger Super Six. I’m using this blog to keep track of the work I do and what I learn about the car as I do it. I’ll hopefully be out on a few track days soon and will post about that too. I’m new to Tigers, new to mechanics and new to Blogging so it’s going to be a journey for me!

So first a bit about the car!

I bought my Tiger at the end of August 2019. The car didn’t come with a wealth of history because it had a build blog on PistonHeads.com. I haven’t yet been able to find this blog (I hope I do!) but I will share what I discover about the car as I go.

Here’s the basics. The car was first registered in 2003 and initially had a pinto engine. The pinto let go at a track (the best ending for an engine) and a 2.0L Ford Zetec engine was added as a replacement. The Zetec has had twin 45 Weber carburettors and a modified sump has been fitted. This was done three or four years ago. Since then the car has only done 1,300 miles. I suspect that there is an upgraded head and something has been done with the cams as well but I’m not sure. Best estimation of horsepower is 150 – 155 bhp.

As I find out more about the car, and do upgrades myself, I’ll update this page here.

Been ages

Hi All, I know it’s been ages since I last posted! Work has been busy and I’ve just been out enjoying the car… really need to spend some time updating the blog because I’ve finished a load of jobs. When I get a spare few minutes I will!

Distracting body(work)

18/03/2021: Partly as a distraction from the carbs (which is taking me far too long) I couldn’t help but revisit the improvements I was making to the nose cone. The foam insert that the hood rests on was pretty tatty and falling away. I’ve bought new and have cut new pieces. It …

I’ll post updates about what I get up to with the car (on and off track) but for the technical stuff there are three lists below. As times goes by I’ll build up a series of pages that chronical the work done, the problems encountered and the solutions created. Useful for me and perhaps useful for others too!
