    Advice taken.:thumbs:
    No more discussion from me, no more sneaky advertorials, nada, ninguna cosa. nothing..... just the odd reply to a wanted or a for sale thread..;)

    I have also asked that nice man Mr Burns to remove my little selling section in the Traders forums as I dont need it now.
    Just for fun here is a pic of the final engine Im building with Skiddell. Its NOT for sale ....it belongs to a friend of mine and he has bought some nice stuff for us to use.

    Now Steve n me are off to attack time.:cool:

    Never thought that you'd do as you were told Pete....how much was the damper....and what is said friend fitting as an exhaust system ?

    Holy thread bump batman.

    Did Steve ever take his engine apart again to see if there's a little more untapped performance in it?

    And what is the difference, in your experience, between an ATi and BHJ damper ? Why fit different ones ?

    I will be using the standard classified system for anything that I have to sell as it now works well.:thumbs:

    As I hardly read anything on the forum nowadays I must have missed this little gem Paul.:D

    And I certainly dont give a s......either

    It is funny to look back on tho.:D
    Albrecht was wrong in his prediction for 2017..............
    I dont see any windscreen wipers in the attached pic??
    Looks to me that 2017 was another "year of the engine"!!

    I will never be able to take another pic like this.
    Three L28s all on the go at once.
    One is being delivered in a day or so:thumbs:
    One will be going home to its owner "very soon":thumbs:
    And the third at block stage will drift over into 2018.:unsure:
    If you add another L28 already done and back in its owners car then I think 4 engines in a year is not bad going for three blokes working part time in a shed behind a (former) council house.:)
    So what about 2018???
    1. Get that block turned in to an engine . Easy really. The owner and friend has supplied everything we need. And he is not in a hurry!:rolleyes:
    2. I will be helping Tim build a new more powerful engine for his 240Z Sprint/hillclimb car.
    3. Steve and me have probably had enough of L6 engines for now.
    I have a 1.8 K series VVC engine that we will play with and drop it in my new track day ZR

    That shed is part of the UK Z history - should be a listed building along with that Nissen (did they spell that badly on purpose :rolleyes:?) shed on a well-known ex-aerodrome !

    Plenty of decent cuppas went into those builds I bet !:D
