Barn Find + Supercharged Engine Swap

2 630
Today we find the body for our next project. We wanted something old, light and good looking and we found just that! New Shirts and stickers here
We found a 1962 Triumph Spitfire for sale 15 minutes from the garage which is insane considering we were looking everywhere in a 300 mile radius. Picked it up and tried to get the classic car running, which we did. Next step was to find a power plant. We decided to get the best bang for our buck we would need a turbo charged or supercharged snowmobile engine and we found a 2003 Yamaha RX1 with a MPI supercharger kit for $2000. I steal of a price because the old RX1's are heavy and unwanted. Next up will be the insane engine swap so subscribe and watch this super charged beast come to life!

I’ve long wanted to put a super bike engine in a spitfire. Really looking forward to seeing what you do with this car.

Could you keep the transmission and mate the motor up with the CVT? Just run the trans in whatever gear is closest to 1:1. That way you still have reverse? Just a thought Either way it’s gonna be sick!!

Normally I would say keep it original, but because it's a Leyland motor carswap the engine out if you want reliability with something more reliable such as a snowmobile engine. Have an excellent day 😀😀😀😀😀😀

Study the snowmobile cowl and see if that has any effect on the way it runs. You may need to duplicate that effect in the Triumph. Just a thought.

The snowmobile is not supercharged its turbocharged lol

Got a question for you. At 10:28 in this video there is a Jag in the back ground. I can't find any vids on it. Are you going to do any episodes with it? I have a 1985 XJ6 that has a 350/TH350 swap. It's our next project.

Bit of a shame, these Spits are so rare in Britain most rusted away. Even in bought condition would be worth quite a bit. Still I would rather see a Spit on the road modified than in a scrap yard so well done.

Hahaha! Just reviewed this video...the plates are from Ravalli County Montana. (I am from there) Not many old sports car fanatics. Looks fun! For the younger bro had a one off build from another era...215 aluminum block V-8 in a custom Harley/Indian frame. I think it was over 11 feet long. Plus, it had an automatic, 2 speed tranny. He did get it over 150 mph before his sack vacuumed onto his throat.

I WANT THE SPITFIRE WHEN YOU'RE DONE!! I've owned two and have been looking for another. I'll be watching to see what you do with it. (You might consider an IRS off a 510 or a BMW.) The stock suspension was prone to "Jacking" like the old VW beetles. Come on post another video. Please

I would ditch the CVT imo, a lot of the charm of a car like this is rowing through the gears. Yeah it'l probably drive ok, and probably be easier to set up with the cvt, but it just wouldn't be as cool.
Does that CVT sled transmission even have reverse?

So want to say no to CVT, as i feel like your going to have to end up re-gearing it anyway if you use it and i feel like a real clutch/transmission is more suited as people don't realise most bike engine aren't designed to move large weight around.
Looking forward to seeing it progress, and love the fact you use the snowmobile on dirt (AMERICA)

IF the CVT went right to the input shaft on the transmission, you could basically just lock the trans in 4th and have an automatic, as long as the bike engine had enough torque to get it moving.

don't worry there are tonnes of these in the UK, no need to keep it standard. whatever you do, junk the rear suspension, its a f'king terrible design that folds on itself (you can already see its positive camber as is)... they are rapid, and do handle well when sorted (even the back end). but if you're going to the trouble of engine swapping it, makes sense to do the back end as well... looking forward to this

"fill up the gas tank and then put it in the car"
My college's Baja SAE team used to do that since it was faster than fueling up normally.
Had a quick-disconnect on the tank line, pull out one, disconnect, connect the new one, and drop it in place. No bolts or anything, just nested onto 2 posts and had a lid come down and secure it in place.
And then another school had a fire or something and they don't let you do that anymore.
