Fair enough

It wouldn't have got messy if folk took the time to read entire posts


In all honesty I'm not under any illusions that this is going to be the ultimate car, but something that will be very different ,a Honda s2000 with a bucket load of torque will be fun .
And all for under £2000 or $2500 dollars if it is that bad I can break it and get my money back
But I seriously doubt it

Like an actual brick, but with more clutch smoke.

As long as you keep the starter button, it's cool.

Up and running
I will take a few pics later if it stop raining
Got a couple of small jobs to do then mot test and away we go

I've been trying to get a few honda sensors together to get as much of the dash working as I can
And some power steering assistance ,but it's getting there

So far it's been a cheap build
Billstein adjustable shocks and polly bushed throughout carbon bonnet ,all came on the shell
Wheels where the biggest expence (still need painting)

And here is a pic of the hovlov for all you grumpy old men (and school girls 240240)
Well the cast crank still stands some 450 hp before it brakes, one of my buddy broke his while mapping approx. 485 hp. But it may have been damaged before mounted in the block who really knows?
It cracked between 3:rd and 4:rth cylinder, but the engine where still running, miss firing and not sounding well of coarse.

So it's now on the road
I managed to get a couple of hours spare today and gave it a30 mile round trip
I'm Very pleased with it it pulls well as it's such a light car
Everything is standard for now but I will increase boost once everything has settled down
