Hi all,

Nothing here for three days. Amazing what a few days off will do. Must be good to pass the time at work Jason?

What does the boss Judy say about all this wasted time. The next performance report will tell. That's not the next dyno performance either

Anyway back to work for some. Must work 21 hours a day to make up for the coming trip/cruise. Note the time of this post

Out of here

Cheers workers

Someone will catch up with me and it will be a real "Weekend at Bernie's" and I may just end up like him

Bernie

Hi Jason,

Just had a quick look at all of your Retyls pictures.

Great to see that you have added so many new pictures.

I left a comment on your pictures - amongst others - that I must get the video sorted and get some assistance to get some photos on to my site here.

It is now after 1am so must go home as I am back here early in the morning.

Cheers all


Bernie

Still got that flu? Jeez.....

Now, you can't get all excited by having 11 people on the board. I want 11 Aussies, and then all the visitors on top of that before I'll get excited. What do you think the problem is with the Qlders? It's not that hard to register and post the fact that you've arrived.... I might print up some flyers and hand them out at the Sanctuary Cove breakfast. You coming to that, or will you let a bit of a sniffle keep you away?!?

Default Nice pics Wayne

Hi there Wayne, i like your pics and love the intake setup on your engine.
Are they a standard fit throttle body for webber manifolds?
Where did you get them from?
Sorry if i am asking to many questions here
Great looking car
I am now leaning more toward yellow with black stripes, quick jacks and flat black side pipes.
Probably all black interior, maybe dark timber dash with black and white dials

Wayne and Chris - it's good to see a couple more Victorians on here.... just what the Queenslanders need!!! You guys are all pretty serious with your cars - Motec and Autronic systems respectively. Are you planning on getting to the Nationals?

Boxhead,
Thanks for the compliments.
I like the yellow and black combo, really looks tuff with the roll bar, lifts and pipes in black!
As for your question, I purchased the car with this set up already in place, so I canít give you an answer straight off the bat.
I will find out what I can and post the answer at a latter date!

Craig,
Would like to attend the Nationals (work commitments allowing).
What is the location and date this year?
As for being serious with our cars, I think our efforts pale into insignificance up against 805hp!

Regards
Wayne
