PS Graham got distracted rebuilding the clio for my friend, hopefully should be sorted this weekend, just need to find a battery!!

1.17Ah, the Anderson connector is a safety precaution, car starts better than my two road cars with the wee battery, Apexi management from Andy and MAFSIM from Andrew Carr.
2. 740cc (again supplied by Andy... common theme coming out here)
3. Yes
4. Yes'ish same pistons

Mark, specifics can be had by PM.

P.S. the run in the first post was shambolic, really struggled with the bite point of the new clutch and fluffed the start. Missed 2nd - 3rd change because I'd been mucking about with shims on a gear linkage modification, and had to lift of before crossing the 1/4 still ended in 11.16 with a fat boy sat in a production seat on the wrong side of the car.
I'm so looking forward to hooking this all up and doing it (and Andy's efforts) some justice.

Mark it's a gell battery, but a standard lead acid would do just as well as long as it's not in the car with you. I took the battery out of my old Start/Charge and I'm going to see if that will work as a backup all you need is something that can crank the car, once it's started the alternator should supply what you need, I'll let you know.

There was a group buy on these small motorsport batteries on 22B as Gerry Houghton bought one for his road car/daily driver to give room for the FMIC tubes.

His 2,5 starts really well, much better than my Sti with a truck sized battery fitted.

Hi Kev, I'm weighing it tomorrow, but I don't have half the stuff out yet so it won't be much lighter than it was 1080kg

The big scoop just hasn't been deleted yet, the original intention was to use it with a panel filter as the feed to the turbo.

Free water injection on a wet Scottish hill climb?
My top scoop is currently cooling the 'cold' pipe from the FMIC to the inlet...

Spec sheet for the car?

Graham.

Have you thought of adding a finned heat sink around the ic pipe?

No bother, a litle rolling of the rears, lots of camber tucks them under the arches nicely. Did have to run very short springs on the rear to raise the spring seats above the tyre.

Mark, they are only covers, there are no lights behind there.

Carl, he's out at Doune tomorrow too. I'll be at alford, Fintray and Boyndie, assuming a baby expected 5-6 weeks hence doesn't interfere.
