Engine builder/tester.

Mainly large diesel engines for backup power but we do a few gas ones.

The V16 will kick out near enough 2500BHP @ 1500RPM.  8) Each cylinder alone has a capacity of just over 3 litres and they are fitted with 4 massive turbos, specs are, Compressor 0.81 A/R and exhaust 1.34 A/R.

I'm a teacher in secondary school on really rough estate in Sunderland.

One of my pupils left a couple of weeks ago, canny lad, he went on to machete someone the other day...

That was 5 years in school well spent..

off to jail with him now....

I sell cars for Audi.

Get to drive powerful cars everyday r8 414bhp/rs6 580bhp!

Plenty of downside though, like 60hour weeks and working every weekend.

Thats the problem with my work at the moment.

There is nothing being built, nothing for me to manage.

Only small jobs that take 4 - 6 weeks.
