Thumbs up 8 trumpets

Have finally finished the install and tune of the individual throttle bodies.
Looooooooooooooong process, dismantle about 150 bolts and screws, polish all components, replace all steel bolts with stainless, polish, reassemble, modify the wish bone to fit in the engine bay, turn up new arms to fit, install manifold header tank, anodise the fuel rails, make throttle stop and idle adjustment, alter top radiator hose, install crank angle sensor, get new coil packs and leads, rewire engine bay, make vacuum tank and fit all lines, fit a zillion new Earls fittings and metres of braided hose, make air cleaners, dyno tune. Made substantially more power and touque in the lower and mid range, only 15 Kw more at the top end. Pull down to fix oil and water leaks, polish, reassemble and retune. Ran at the nationals, disaster, possitive crank case pressure. Back to the drawing board, fit new breather to the sump and rocker covers, ran at Winton 6 hour, better but not completely solved. Need bigger breathers and larger catch can.

As you can see all the effort is worth while. Just shows sometimes too much time on your hands can create a beautiful result.

Impressive! Do you utilize any air filtration, or is it "Damn the cylinder walls and full speed ahead?"
