  1. Same magnum as mine. Hasn't changed since Spiro had it..
  2. Manual is WAY more fun and can handle everything that we can throw at it. The last time that I spoke to Daryn's (Formerly Spiro's car), he had 1524 rwhp with still more left it it. His magnum has survived so far.... So no problems with box failures.
  3. I had the car on the hub dyno a fortnight ago. We managed 670 rwhp on 18 psi (98 Ron), with no real timing added. We had to pull up there as the dyno was having issues. We were doing full power runs and the eddy brake would intermittently come on hard, sometimes stopping the engine dead. Even made the turbo spool backwards.... I have to say that this speaks volumes for the quality of Mal Woods tailshaft and The Driveline Shop Cv's... I took the car for a drive out to the worksop today and gave it a few squirts on the way. It now looks like I have again snapped some ARP flywheel bolts, as the clutch loss has the same characteristics as last time. Resevior is full of fluid, just won't engage the CSC properly.. So, It looks like I will remove the box, AGAIN!!! And we'll look at dowling the crank this time round..
  4. Shifter is now working fine. I ended up removing the box and sending it to him. He said that the gate in then Magnum was a bit different and required the cams in the shifter to be modified. The shifter that I have now has a shorter handle that the previous one. I actually like it better, as the strain gauge made the knob a bit high for my liking.
  5. I see that the factory FG coil covers don't have a seal either... This surprised me somewhat.. I have plans for a carbon fiber cover for my car, when I get time...
  6. I guess that we can close the thread now.
  7. I'm installing a set of these in a spare engine that I'm currently building. I have the set of #306802 Atomic springs in my current engine and given the specs and price of the Crow springs, I thought that I'd give them a go. I guess that only time will tell...
  8. So, Has everyone received their housings?
  9. They are the same orientation as the factory housings. I have a Plazzy race series plenum and it has no clearance issues. I can't speak for other brands and varients...
  10. @Keith, could you please provide some advice?
  11. Does the thickness of the radiator reduce clearance between the fans and the front of the engine? Or does it transfer towards the front of the car? Only asking, as I have limited room even with the standard radiator..
  12. Housings have been sent by Express Post. I will private message those involved with the buy, with the tracking numbers.
  13. As far as I know, the Mal Wood shifter does not have a spring. The Magnum's have a detent spring, which is a sealed unit that screws into the R/H side on the gearbox. It is this spring that gives you resistance and gate pressure. I think that the difference in the height of the shifters that you're using, is affecting the leverage on the detent spring and using less resistance to push through it... See link for a pic of a dentent spring Detent spring
  14. You will have to get the block sonic tested to verify wall thickness. Every block should be done prior to machining, as number one cylinder suffers from bore shift. I'm currently building a spare and got one good block out of three. The minimum bore thickness we encountered was 0.060", which is obviously very thin. If you have a reasonable block, you can also offset bore individual cylinders to keep as much meat in there as you can. The minimum thickness in this new block is 0.120". I hope that this helps.
  15. A small update. All freight information has been sent to Hammond Engineering. He said that he had a personal issue that has put him back 24 hours, and that he'll forward some pictures soon. I'll post them as soon as they are received. Brad
