latest news. i've just had my head crack and pressure tested, reco'd, new Nissan head gasket, head bolts and washers, another exhaust manifold ported and machined up, the wiring loom tidied up in the engine bay and the cam advanced. all the work has been done by a dude that used to work down at ProMaz and is apparently pretty good so i hope when i pick it up tomorrow it'll all be up to scratch!

new pics soon.

ROTFLMAO! good one Matt. :lol: :lol: if it weren't for it being boosted it would be a real bogans car! i don't really like VL's though.

and about my engine being in a Jaycar mag, Karl/Joof showed me the picture you'd be thinking of and to me it looks exactly the same! i think it was in the EBC instruction booklet? it might be mine from ages ago when an automotive machinest in Melbourne owned and originally built it up? when i get the chance next i'll try hopefully remember to ask. it's a full on dead spit! freaky?:?

anyway heres some pics of it. theres 2 things that really bug me about it and they are the front nose being bashed in a bit and the paint being rather shite! other than that it's ok. it goes a lot better than it looks!

well i picked up my ET today and am pretty happy with the work. it's running fine, the timing has been retarded a bit and will stay that way for the time being. other than that it's all go go go. i'll hopefully have it back on the road registered next week if all goes well with the roady and rego. then a lot of shit will be going on once it's registered again!

I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense.
