Well parts have been showing up, so i have taken some pics of whats come, an will keep updating as parts show up over the next few weeks.

Few pics of the Parts which have shown up.....

Steel Rods and Low Comp Pistons
Steel Crank is coming in the next week or so i am told they are on back order, meaning i will have fully steel bottom ends



Steel Ultra lightweight flywheels (very very strong) to take a 7 1/4 Racing twin plate paddle Clutch



Bronze Valve Guilds



My fancy Hydr Handbrake, this one means i can run cable aswell as hydr meaning i can pass a MOT keeping the car fully road legal



2 x Exharst Manifolds with 38mm Tail! Wastegates, i am unsure weather i am going to run these as yet i fancy making my own up, but we will see.....




I have also got my self SteveW old Boot spolier the GSI one with the ajustablue section, just another suttle mod to the shell. Keeping the standard looks but with a twist for people who will notice or knows what they are looking for....
(Pics from Ed's garage when it was painted black)




All going well car will be at PVS 90% done i am hoping to just have the ECU setup to sort out after the show

500bhp each?? its gonna be a monster, whats the deal with twin engines on the road now though? i read somewhere when that twin engine nova was built that you could only run one on the road

May not be cable as yet, theres another route i am planning which i far more special

I think i am going to run Autronic few reasons :-
- It has that many imputs you can have both the engines talking as such (if front engine boost cuts, the rear ecu will pick it up and cut rear)
- Has almost every option on it so never need any addons
- Marks from MAD supose to be the bollox and really helpful, he also offers outstanding aftercare anytime any place he can help he will

But theres 3000 on ECUs
