However the vast majority of cars on this forum do not have high performance engines so some of the info is aimed at gentle education. But if you think its unneccessary or patronising Ill stop now.

It's interesting stuff

I'm only recently into building engines....built my 4.2 Etype engine as my first ever a few years ago and just finished an Essex V6 whilst helping out with the Ratsun lump

So.....I will read with interest

200bhp from an L28 ? Did I read you correctly Pete ?

Of course, it's all about power vs. cost and then for a select few they MUST have an L-gata.

Personally I did a full circle and came back to using a N/A L...however my voyage opened my eyes and I became more tolerant of swaps and certain L-applications (EFi for example).

Bravo chaps - can only advance the Z-scene within the UK.....what else are you going to reinvent ?

My title was simply intended as a description of what Tim, Steve and me will be doing in 2016 . It wasnt intended to be a grandoise or sweeping statement about the year ahead in general or even about the forum and Im sorry if you saw it in that light..
There certainly wont be any content that you dont already know so I do understand your comment. Its quite funny but not as goood as some of your all time classics.

Yes you did Sean.
In a similar vein to my reply to Albrecht I am fully aware that the thread wont be of interest to you given your existing knowledge and place in the S30 scene.
As its a public forum fyou are of course entitled to put comments up that may be sardonic, sarcastic or derogatory. But think carefully when you do . Is this the kind of image you are trying to put forward of yourself as a bonafide Trader on the forum who is invoved in the manufacture and supply of engine related components??

Quote:

Sean we are not attmpting to re invent anything.
I am trying to demonstrate to newer members or existing members who may not have been involved in engine building that its not neccessary to have a "Z specialist" build an engine for your S30 at huge expense.. And furthermore that its not neccessary to spend £10K on components like Steve has or Tim is currently doing.
This thread is about giving some on forum advice to those who want it in a similar way that we have given off forum advice to others like Lee/Vipergts.

Judging by the on forum comments from others and some off forum conversation going on it has the makings of a modestly useful thread.

Second statement was a compliment ! (sorry) Can't do better than have up put a thumbs up to avoid ANY b and w word misinterpretation mate !: thumbs::th umbs:

First, simply a question and intended as much for others' sake as for my curiosity....

.....I don't see how it could be interpretated as "sardonic, sarcastic or derogatory".

This smacks of another thread that you later removed re Steve's emerging car which also would be of interest to potentiel Z preparers.

Have a dram and come back to us with the rose-tinted glasses and let's follow a potentially good thread.

The best complement you could pay me is never posting on any thread I start.
I can gladly return the complement by refraining from posting on any thread you start.
