Rods are Max Speeding.

Pistons are custom JE and cam is also custom from Kent. Defined by the engine builders.

It's looking fantastic!
Is the 16" Rays box a clue of the wheel choice?

Nice, who built the engine? What sort of feel are you going for?

Well its not been run yet so I'm not going to make any claims but it should be adequate for a light car. Plan to get it on the bench dyno before it goes in the car, will post headline figures etc then.

Two well known guys off the forum put the engine together for me.

Its no secret, so no need for subtlety
We dont name owners when an engine is in our posession but once its returned to its owner they are free to choose whether we get named or not.
Similarly the owner is free to discuss the spec etc.

This looks fantastic, really looking forward to seeing the progress.

It also looks like someone has enjoyed a shopping spree with Techno Toy Tuning as well

An err yes, a bit of a spree - guilty as charged I am afraid!

Haha there's other options but I was really impressed with the quality of the parts I got and from what my dad said when he visited their shop out in California to collect them.

Yeah I bet, I'm sure it'll all be worth it when that engine fires up.

I know the feeling, looks the business all installed though and will seriously ramp things up in the handling and braking department I'm sure.

What TTT bits have you got and how have you found them on the road?

Should be rolling this weekend, quite looking forward to seeing the wheels against the new paint!

Great wheels, they're nice and light also. I was looking at the 14x7 which are sub 5kg!

Yes they look mega. I really wanted 15s but the template for the TTT rear brakes said they wouldn't fit, so 16s it is.
