What are the advantages of removing the aux fuel tank?

I had to replace the bracket on mine the other day because it had rotted away and fell off!

when low on fuel the reserve pump can't keep up when on boost so runs lean ( when running highish boost )i think?

Exactly so on my car, plus it saves weight ;)
No need to worry about it if you are running under 1.5 bar imo, unless you want to save weight of course.

Not yet, been a bit busy with work, stripped the engine yesterday ready to come out, going to try to get the block out & leave the box in.
Need to hone the liners & clean the pistons up a bit, order my AP paddle clutch & then crack on with it, i hope to have it done by next week by doing a bit after work each day.

yeah man, the work shop looks wicked. good luck with the re-build.
d'ya reckon you'd be able to put up a few piccys of how you piped your front mount? i want to run one later this year and just want an idea of where to tube around and that?

I'm hoping if i leave it in there one of the kids will rebuild it for me :lol:

Will try to get some piccies of the pipe run but it goes around the subframe on both sides then back across itself & up by the alt on one side & up by the gearbox the other.

Just finished building the lump up in the front room  :lol:





Just need to set my tappets, stick the rocker back on & wait for the paddle clutch to turn up, then drop it all back in.

Lauren would physically kill me. It's bad enough when I take a carb apart on the stainless steel kitchen sink. :P

alright mate, hows the rebuild going?
i seen the april Performance Tuner in a shop today so i snapped up a copy. its a good feature, the car looks great in it. i love the bit where they talk about Ali G ruining the gt turbo, thought that was well funny.

Cheers, the mag feature wasn't too bad was it.
Rebuild is done, it's a bit rattley on idle now but i've been told thats normal for forged pistons with centre pins, so i'll just have to get used to it, it does quieten a bit when hot.
Got carb issues as well at the moment as i gave my carb to someone to help them out & got a duff carb in return it seems.
Accidently ran 2 bar boost through it the other day, fook me it was spinning the wheels in 2nd & 3rd when the boost cut in & that was in the dry :)  turned it down to 1.2 at the moment till i can sort the carb out :(
I hope to get to pod on the 31 st May & get into the 12's
