    We're also pretty confident that valve springs were to blame for the previous failure, the original valve springs, which I don't know the spec of, weren't capable of controlling the valves over 8000rpm and led to piston valve contact.

    They were perfectly happy at 7800rpm but as soon as the limit went up they cried wolf and went on strike.

    Paddle shift solenoid and air lines in



    Life racing ECU fitted in it's new home



    Throttle blipper mount made



    All new BMRS oil lines made up



    New engine being timed up and just days away from collection



    New ECU loom being measured up



    Shouldn't be that far away, hoping for a first start in early August and a dyno session mid August.

    Strapped in the van, just got home, workshop tomorrow to get it in the car and finish some other jobs.

    Hopefully won't be too much longer.
