    I'm starting to think this is going to be a lot of fun to use.



    They supply everything you need to complete the job, right down to the cable ties, refill adapter and a few spares.




    There's some good looking quality components in the kit.




    Because I'm going to need to be able to control all of that powa!



    No old school here. Electronic pressure gauge.

    The motor is currently in the hands of the guys at "The House of Power" aka; Chain Reaction.

    I stopped in during the week to see the progress and wanted to take some photos, but they were very protective. haha
    I managed to get a couple of crappy phone pics while I was being hip and shouldered away from the workbench.

    Not long to go before they finish. Hamish was busy port matching the insulator that joins the throttle body to the engine while I was there. I think he said the only thing left to do after that is to fit the cams and do the timing.

    At a guess, it could be because he's sick of snogglers butting in and telling him how/what to do and being super critical with no constructive comments. Or he just can't be fucked with a dead forum like PSB.
    Rest in Peace

    Well that would be a bit counterintuitive given his original post
