I'll keep her and figure out another way to keep the lights on as I'll be damned if I'm going to give her away.
Ok, you're damned, now give it to me.

Glad to see you lighting this fire again. It's good to have something bringing some happiness to life.

Once she's road worthy you'll have to come up for a little trip on the Boundary road.

I'll take pics when the flange bits arrive and I get the downpipe welded up.

Flatrate hurry-up package is on the way.....

Time goes by.... Life gets in the way....

I finally got all the plumbing together enough so that I could go and abuse her some today. The Holset is BIG and wakes at 3500-4000 when HOLY SH!T BATMAN!! She's run through 1-2-3 RIGHT NOW. Tone is distinctly different. I've missed that SHOVE in the back that she makes. Over 500lb/ft at the wheels does that up right

I'll tidy up some details with her (Windshield and tying the cage to the donor for a start) and you'll have to join me for a little ride on the 'Boundry Road.' She goes real good and you're overdue Eric.

Speaking of things that are long overdue.... She's going to have to make a trip to the dragstrip.

This time we'll do it on something other then old rallytires!

Our first effort at the track made for a pair of 1/4 mile long stripes and a 'Discussion' with the track official who was NOT amused with my doing the quarter sideways.

Bits and pieces are finding their way back to me......

We've stroked a B-280 from 73mm to 79.375mm......

More displacement... More torque.... More fun!

This one will stay naturally aspirated for the Yellow car with an automagic behind it for tooling around.

Stay tuned!

I'm assembling the engine now.... Crank is in... Liners are in...

I've started with porting the heads. Lots of room for improvement in the exhaust.

The stroked V-6 is in and running in the streetcar.

Engine management needs to get sorted.

She's got potential.

Rallycar update.... Rear tires are officially toast... They spin in fourth as soon as boost hits twelve pounds..... Fun was had getting them to this condition! I have a stack of old rallytires.
