  1. Power is all made in the head, I am using a 10 year old turbo and standard ECU, so I’m pretty impressed with how it’s all gone. I am using 1mm oversize inlet valves and standard exhaust valves.
  2. Yeah I was very happy with the end result, but the development isn’t going to stop just there. Basically the difference between the last build and this one was a new cooler and intake, dry sump, but most of the power gains have to be attributed to the cylinder head. We are seeing well over 300CFM through the inlet side, and we made peak power at relatively low RPM to what I have seen people revving these engines too. The engine still retains a factory crank and standard stroke at this stage, and all the tuning is done via SCT with the standard ECU. Colin is a wizard with these cylinder heads and I’m stoked that he tells me he has heads coming in the door from all over. I will try and keep this a bit more up to date
  3. Can we please move this to the 1200kw section?
  4. Your biggest challenge is going to be keeping the fungus and rot out, I don’t know your climate too well but a regular dose of a product called Mancozeb should help keep it under control. Looks great though!!
  5. I would love someone to come and empty my complete house. Then I get all new stuff
  6. That is what everyone has said. I must be the only person in Australia who doesn't drink
  7. While I’m at it, this is the new BBQ area I’ve almost finished..
  8. It is just green couch, it gets mowed almost every day, and I have a concoction of different fertilizers and weeders that I use on it. My water bill is also quite impressive haha in winter I oversow it with Rye grass seed, as it thrives in the winter, and then spray it out again come spring.
  9. I have the engine out of it at the moment, making some changes and seeing how we go with some development. I will update this when it’s all back together
  10. 3x 460s in a 5L surge, -6 lines to and from the tank and -8 lines to and from the fuel rail with an FPR2000. Should do the trick!
  11. Some progress on the new fuel system I am installing...
  12. That won't help with detonation being that lean. Might be worthwhile chucking a bore scope down the plug holes and checking the pistons if it has been like that for a while?
