  1. Great stuff Paul, did you sell the W58? Tony
  2. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252062575724?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D252062575724%26_rdc%3D1 Tony
  3. Awesome work guys and incredible pace ! Lose the spots tho Tony
  4. Looks fantastic Kev Re the pics and non members I feel they should be shown to all. People like picture stories and are more likely to start to love the cars the more they see them. They shouldn't be exclusive (pun intended ) Tony
  5. It maybe wasnt in RHD but it still fits Tony
  6. The injection set up clears the servo and cylinder ok. Many have done it and even the factory A series GTE was injected. Tony
  7. Sorry re the engine speed while on the road by steady Chris probably meant not flat out but also varying engine speed too as we would in normal driving, just prolonged same speed to be avoided. Tony
  8. Yes if running a new cam then high idle for 10 mins will help bed the cam in. I should have said that too but assumed it was a used stock cam. The CRO will have additives to deal with load on bearings etc but will not have friction modifiers that can hurt the ring / bore bedding procedure. HTH Tony
  9. Millers do a running in oil called CRO. Its a very good running in oil and offers good protection too. Ive known turbo engines be run in on dynos including a power run to bed the rings in. As mentioned already dont be too gentle with it as the bores can glaze. I would drive it normally as if going for a nice drive out and occasional full throttle bursts in High gears with the rpm starting at about 2500 rpm. This will put more pressure in the cylinders without over revving. Similarly lifting off and coasting down helps the rings seal in the ring grooves too. Basically varying the throttle is a good thing and sustained engine speed is not so good. If using CRO I would leave it in for 500 mils and then go for the oil of your choice and thats it I dont see the need to keep going steady for 1000 miles. The factory never did, plus the oils are superior now HTH Tony
  10. I have some suggestions but need to know first, stock cam or high lift? Tony
  11. 12.9's will be fine. I wouldnt use stainless though as they can work harden and become brittle. Stainless bolt are not recommended for steering and suspension areas. Tony
  12. great speed! If you carry on at this pace itll be done next week Tony
  13. Wow nice ! Dont tell us you also found the original copy of the bible in the glovebox too (fast show ref ) The lsd and seats are worth more than most project cars.. Tony
