It looks good because the boost pipes are red and the coolant hoses are original black when they are all the same colour i think it can be too much imo. Very good i shall now steal this idea for my own car! :wink:

haha..  I have tried to keep it as tasteful as poss..  I agree about the hose thing.  You see a lot of bays packed full of colours, but they lose the detail.  I dont even think its looks as good yet as its going to, when the front alloy int.cooler is back and the silver mesh induction kit...  that will really set it off.  I am tinkering with the idea of a genuine carbon fibre heat shield and carbon perc hose.. but other things to do 1st (just getting some more brake bits chromed up then get them fitted)  Just ordered some carbon fibre for other parts  8)

I have ordered some more bits that should be here in a few days.. that will prob be the majority of the engine done then....(but I always say that!  :lol: )  happy days


yep you sure do, you will get it how you want it and then the next morning you will go in the garage and change your mind and start all over again, lol

i dont have a group a carb mine has just been rejeted as i heard group a carbs are more hassle than there worth and people go back to standard and rejet, would the forge intercooler make much difference ? i like my power low down and i have the 270 cam which kicks in nicely, so far my spec is...

 engine consists of-brand new standard pistons and liners,lightened and balanced crank and flywheel,crank has been machined to 0.25mm,big end and little end,brand new oil pump,BB Tuning gaskets kit,uprated head gasket and bolts,stage 3 ported and gas flowed head,270 degree cam from BB Tuning,plus uprated valve springs and seals,250 bhp BB clutch,all new bearings and shells,brand new water pump,turbo technics stage 1 turbo,pace double capacity intercooler,currently running 14 psi, full stainless steel exhaust,scorpian 4 inch back box and the rest magnex,full samco hoses,bailey dump valve,carb rejetted.

i think its about 165bhp at the minute so i was told but what do you think ?? it would be nice to be around the 185 to 200 bhp so i had a bit more power but iam not complaining at the minute as it doesent hang about

if you have the engine out then go for a full rebuild if you have the funds as you no when you put it back in its going to last a while as the last thing you want to do is put engine back in and then something happens and it has to come out again....thats what i would do anyway

Might be a bit OTT for road use i think. 10w40 will protect well enough between 90-120c, theres no reason why the oil would get any hotter then that unless you do a lot of trackdays.

well if you love your car that much cost and exellence doesnt come into it
thats why iam using valvoline 15w50 never missed a beat


i agree with that i use mobil 1 motorsport 15w50 and it costs 50 every 2000 miles for oil change but its good oil and my car demands the best :lol:
