    Chuck's Jaguar D Type Build

    Looks good Doug. If you are going to spend much time at medium and higher RPM, you could put a larger pulley on the alternator to extend its life - it'll get buzzed pretty high with that pulley set-up. You have heaps of belt wrap-around so I'm sure you'll be fine with a single belt. Cheers...

    Anyone ever used Stack Injection ITB setup?

    Hi Chris, If you IR system doesn't have a common plenum - make one. Tap each runner under the throttle plates, and run 8 small vacuum lines to a small vacuum reservoir, then feed the MAP sensor off that. Unless you have a truly massive cam - I'm talking a mega race cam - there's no excuse for...

    Anyone ever used Stack Injection ITB setup?

    Hi all, the Hilborn 2 7/16 EFI IR system on the 440 SBC in my McLaren M1 replica is very docile and well behaved at idle, off idle and cruise. Wide open it is awesome with monster mid range punch. At it's core this is a Shafiroff ultra-street crate engine with around 250 duration and 109 LSA...

    Wolseley 6/90 revival

    Hi all, short update. Exhaust system completed from headers back. Jag IRS has been in for a while - just finishing off handbrake cable and other bits and pieces. Fresh underseal on back half of the car. Steel wheels (which will be powdercoated black and fitted with original hubcaps) are 17x8...

    Wolseley 6/90 revival

    Hi Russell, I bought the LVVTA car constructor manual, and have been doing my best to follow that. Because I am using entire sub assemblies with OEM parts for the front and rear end, the suspension/brakes/diff side of things is pretty straight forward. The biggest mod in terms of engineering...

    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...

    McLaren M20#73

    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...

    McLaren M20#73

    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...
