I'm up for the meet!
That's great - I'm now selling tickets - raffle tickets for who wants a drive in her !
think me and skiddel might buy one between us to see how much slower your car is considering you have the lower spec engine,second thoughts dont think ill bother im washing my hair and off to you know where saturday
Did you see my heat shield ? Better than yours - your's was the prototype - we deiscded that since you winged so much to have it done quickly - we'd try out all the s**t on yours then improve it for mine
Anyway - you'll be so long washing that mop and I don't want dog-hairs in my car !
yeah it looked shite,still no need for one now,doing the fuel system how it should have been done to start with,thanks to stevie boy
and UK weather ! But then I've also got those shite looking 280Z bonnet vents which'll help !
BTW - who do you think did Stevie boys' head ?
i know you do his head in and others buts thats just fun,we r talking throttle bodies here lad not heads,mr DJ who also done a good number on mine,but like most things there is room for improvement in some compartments but it doesnt come cheap,been in steves car,doesnt fart cough splutter or spit,nice and smooth cant think of anything better,think you will want it done to your piss wagon one day so start saving your euros.well worth a look,and you wont have to keep popping into your local garage to fill up,im probably getting 10-15 to the gallon at the mo so should be a nice improvement,does sound nice though got to admit
PS,i have some new injecters surplus to requirements if you r interested
I don't want your second hand ants' pi** squirters - I'm so much lighter than you that I'll easily get 5 mpg more, there's less traffic here and more open roads so another 5 and I don't need to impress the local fuzz so there's my last 5 plus petrol over here is cheaper - (don't you remember how much it wasn't in Spain ?).
On a more serious note, I shall be watching developments : if I'd done what I'd wanted years ago, I'd have a simple 2.8 now, a bit tired etc. I'll wait for a proven product that's less expensive and more efficient. So you enjoy yours and I'll enjoy mine and forget about that porker !
i dont see how you can be lighter than me as you r full of shite most times and yes i certainly did impress the local fuzz,think it was Matts smile that got me off the hook,wot a handsome chap,just like me,be good when you get the car back,you wont be dissapointed,will you be over for Billing and santa pod,was hoping to have the throttle bodies up and running by then but some poxy lotus cortina has got in the way so it might be in the garage in a couple of weeks,nowt wrong with a simple 28,just mines a bit bigger,
3 1/2 years is a loooonnnnggg time Sean, congratulations on having the balls to see it through, it can be disheartening at times.
The Flying Primrose looks fantastic - hopefully there will be a full and detailed mag article in the near future ?????
Twisty alpine roads are calling .............
Thanks ZHead - luckily I had the house and Jules to keep me sane but the times I went off to sleep thinking of her - the car of course, not Cathy !
First of all Le Mans Classic and two laps of the full circuit), then Spa in Septemeber for the Histroic 6 hrs race (spectating) and during the meanwhilst I'm getting my competition licence to get out on track days over here - 4x45 minute sessions for £80 at circuits like Val de Vienne and the Le Mans Bugatti tracks ! That's for next year plus of course enjoying our humble country roads.
I would love to do a re-run of the '91 Swiss Trip.........
Status, who's doing your TBs ? Mr 'kinell (he's fast) spent a lot of time getting it right - don't just take it to anyone !
I'm convinced too it's the next step - just let me enjoy the induction roar for a while while I convince Cathy that I need Fi !
Good to see your cars finished. Enjoy the drive, as all those years waiting have been worth it. Look forward to the article.
one of my mates he does race engines,he even save me 2 grand on the bits,hence spare set of injecters,it does sound the nuts though,he just came back from a week in spa,smashed his car up and blew the engine,apart from that he had a good time,right im off on holiday now so up yours
Shite floats - must be lighter
Congratulations on seeing it through to completion Sean!
Now if you are ever interested in a REAL engine for the car, you know who to call……
I’ll get me coat!
Well.............I do have this VERY clean 280Z that is I don't sell would make a terrific convertible and a V8 init might just work..... !
Looking forward to seeing yours on the road too.....in the rear view mirror.
Good reason to celebrate...(don't forget the best available French Champagne,From you to
me). DJ'french bread & wine' 60.
Indeed! Not wanting to get into any jackstand racing type talk I shall only answer with this..............we'll see!
