staying 5 litre this year..... after that i can't promise anything....
Actually it's prob easier to stay 5 litre, ...... short blocks available for $400 should i blow one up.... T5 gearboxes around the same price..... cheap as chips for me....

but we always want MORE POWER!!!

Not making excuses Mr TOWIEEMASTER.... Just being humble as to our prospective performance.... Anything better than that is very satisfying... and if we fair not so well.....we'll have fun trying!

Unhappy Bit of a setback.

I decided to give the old no 7 a bit of a check over before the nats and bugger me the turbo is stuffed . And the only one i have is a cheap chinese p.o.s. but it will have to do and its smaller!! had to make new flanges oil drain mod the air inlet and remake the dump pipe so much for a check over.
oh well spook will not be happy when gets his 1/2 the bill
from the repairs .
I also just finished dynoing the old turbo now it will be all different again.

save everyone the time and money

Hang on there was 1 quick car , na you'd better all come down. we have a chance

Cool what only one!!!

What all those cobras and only one is quick ??
it can only be in one class Qld has quick cars in lots of classes.
But only time will tell.
I just didnt have enough room for the gt45 turbo its only rated to 1000hp.
so could only put on the smaller brother of it to4e .
I have had to order in a smaller vband clamp 2.5 inch .
no excuses here just facts .
