Oi ! 440's will be fine for me I reckon, until I have a fund for breaking other bits I reckon 320/320 is enough to play with ? The map sensor will make the mid range better which is what I need with my short gearing.

Turbo spooling is hilarious, I think it is quite loud but not had the induction experience on my own car before.

Yes Ian 16g for me.

I have a special panic room in my head I now retreat to.

I could do the cutting, and I did the painting after this, but it's remembering where everything went I would struggle with !

No way I could have done it on the road at mine.

Go Mr Neame senior

just take plenty of pics as you go and label everything. make a few notes as well. that's how i learnt with the old rs turbo engine. before long i could have rebuilt one with my eyes shut. needed to be rebuilt so often as my mate was always blowing his up

stu i've been told he's rebuilt whole cars before in the dining room before he was married

Bri's is a proper F1 and a little different from standard; its got a one off grill with the foglights behind it instead of either side, he has a 355 challenge apron thing between the lights, the roof panels have been painted body colour, it was lower by its previous owner too, anthracite wheels and red pin stripe and he has just tinted the front indicators.

My friends dad's is a standard phase II with the exception of a stage 1 Tubi. He has flappy padels and Bri's is a lovely snick, snick manual box
