What did you do to your Z this week?

As usual nothing, but I am just considering getting it to a specialist to get it running right and out of storage - it’s been at my mate’s mums since last August … I just don’t have the time to drive it or work on it atm as got a kitchen install and an extension going on together, which is dragging on for loads of different reasons. Any suggestions, somewhere in the East Mids? Failing that, I’ll just get it to Fourways and be done with it…

I moved the 240Z in and out of the garage several times the last few days.

I still don't have time to work on the cars (the house is taking all my time still) but I have had to find time to make room for something...

5-6 hours on the rolling rd hit 290 bhp with the Rebbelo,( nice one Cyril ) as we say
if I’d taken the Rev limiter out of the equation it would’ve hit over 300 bhp but decided to stay safe,how fast do we really need to go anyway as it’s not a big dick competition but saying that I did have to show the Audi A4 wot real power is on the slip rd on to the M 11 couldn’t resist It,I put fifty quids worth of petrol in the Z and didn’t check on way back and I think I did the last two miles on fumes,Next job is to put me new wheels on then the fourways meet on July 9th,Also there is the Matching green show in July that I hopefully will be going,it’s in Essex near Harlow anyone interested ill ping you over the date,meeting up with me mate in the lotus cortina which did a RR session last week with a measly 133 bhp which is pretty good for one of them

So that's all from a NA L28 isn't it? Albeit very tuned? That's impressive. I'd like a Rebello engine 😂

I’ll stick the graph up later Rob for both cars,Steve the RR man who did the 3.1 back in 2007 said it’s a much better motor than wot I had before I’ll get him to email that over and you can compare,it goes like stink just like the other did to me both engines had plentry of power,
Robo it’s a 3.2 running Jenvy TBs Quaife diff and a few other bits ind bobs,pic of car and engine bay
