RE: [DMCForum] Twin Turbo Progress



That is an amazing amount of work in such a short time, Martin!  It also
looks really good and I wish I was able to attend the show and see it in
person.

I am not trying to pick it apart but noticed your alternator is a bit wonky.
Is that the right term for not straight? :)  It looks like it could easily
throw a belt.  I just thought I would mention it.

Those exhaust tips rule!  Let us know what numbers you get from the rolling
road.

Hi All

This afternoon, #2727 moved under its own steam for the first time in 
months. Only to be reversed out of the shop but considering it drove in 
with a completely different engine and an automatic transmission, it was 
a proud moment notching it into gear and lifting the clutch. It only has 
to do an 800 mile round trip to Belfast within the week....The engine is 
smooth with a capital smoo, I'm really starting to like this EFI 
business... :-D

Yes, the intercoolers are slightly on the bonk, but this is what happens 
when you rush things at the last minute because your radiator guy is 
going on holiday.
Yes it did have an oil leak, that was sorted before the photos were taken
Yes, the air filters have now been oiled
No, there are no original Walker mufflers, but the Aston Martin exhaust 
tips have wadding in them and really do make a difference
Yes the rear impact absorber has seen better days.
Yes the wiring has now been tidied up
The hoses are blue because we needed them in a hurry and that was the 
only colour on the shelf
The intake pipwork has been re-worked and moved about to fit inside the 
rear closing plate. It's very tight.

Off to a rolling road tomorrow for full mapping (I just got it idling 
and warming up) and then Ireland on Wedneaday - see you at Eurofest!!!
