    McLaren M20#73

    Hi Andy, looks superb! A very small thought - it looks like the master cylinders are mounted on a single sheet at the footwell bulkhead. I assume you've given the brake pedal a good serve to check for any deflection of the masters at the mounting point. In my experience that has a...

    I think the factory sensors will work fine. You might as well retain the knock sensors but you will need to tune frequency, sensitivity and the amount of retard they command based on the amount of mechanical noise (valve-train etc) your race engine produces in operation. They are potentially a...

    Looking awesome Andy! What ECU did you end up going with? If you are not going DBW throttle the Holley HP ECU would be worth a look, and they do complete ECU+harness kits for LSX. I'm putting one on an LS3 and the software is fairly intuitive with great learning and closed loop control...

    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...
