    McLaren M20#73

    It'll be more progressive in its torque delivery with that set-up too - probably a significant benefit when trying to harness that much power in a road racing application. Looking awesome. Cheers, Andrew

    Wolseley 6/90 revival

    Hi All, Progress update. Unfortunately when the new site went live my photo albums got nuked so any of my previous posts that had photos in them are now blank. Anyway, things are going slowly but well. The Jag IRS is now in. The braking system is now a GM hydro-boost with all the hardware...

    Wolseley 6/90 revival

    Hey Boxy, Yep nice part of the country for sure. Don't know if you've been through there lately but the strip between Omarama and Twizel is now irrigated with centre-pivots and full of dairy conversions - not the right place for that I reckon. Bit narrow for a big block, and not enough...

    Wolseley 6/90 revival

    Hi All, Currently got the McLaren M1B replica under a sheet at the back of the shed and working on my Dad’s car – now mine since he has gone into care. It’s a 1957 Wolseley 6/90 series 2. These things had a 2.6L BMC C series and 4 speed box with right hand gear change and were not bad...

    McLaren M1 replica

    Hi Leon, Because the options available for de-mountable members under NZ regs didn't suit my application, I used the specific engineering design route where I had to get an engineers report. I used Dwayne Zander, a design engineer who works at Gary Douglas Engineers in Palmerston North...

    LS3/480 and Cam Surge

    Hi, can't talk directly to the LS3/480, but I had the same issue on a multi-point injected 383 SBC with aftermarket engine management on it in a project car for the street which had manual transmission, and where manners were really important. I had a hydraulic roller cam of similar specs to...

    930 transaxle puking fluid?

    Hi, in my inverted race application, I have a Moroso catch can (with top mounted breather) receiving oil puked from the top of the trans that is directed into the top side of the can. This drains directly back to the trans from the bottom of the can through a modified fitting in place of the...

    AFR gauge recommendation?

    Hi, your ECU may have the ability to drive a 0-5v gauge directly off an auxilliary PWM or similar output. If so, that would negate the requirement to install and maintain another WB sensor in the exhaust. Cheers, Andrew

    Installation of Jenveys with Emerald ECU on my 302

    Hi Dave, good to hear you are getting near the fun end of the ITB conversion! In terms of flow from the lift pumps, assuming they are charging up a surge tank or swirl pot arrangement, you obviously want comfortably more volume from the low pressure system than the engine will ever need...

    the Steinard MK3 takes shape

    John the car looks bloody superb. My M1 with cast iron chev was 920kg without the body on so you have done a fabulous job building it to a low weight - I'm sure it will be a weapon! Cheers, Andrew
