Wally,
Thanks for posting the pics. You're a star!
The turbo we are using is a modified truck turbo. There are a load of numbers on the exhaust housing and bearing housing but not sure of the exact model. John tested a similar spec motor using this model turbo and it made in the region of 460hp with very little lag and it is rated to 600hp. Personally I am a little bit concerned about the air filter looking a bit wimpy on such a large turbo. J Maher said that they use these on high powered Jap turbo motors, it is just that space is a bit tight. John will do a dyno run with and without the filter and we will see. He is susposed to be testing on the dyno this week so we should have some figures.

Although it looks flashy the pump is a single stage Autocraft pump. No drysump on this lump.

Deano,
Motor not in the car yet. Hoping to have it tested this week. Still loads to do before Spa. I think if I am at Spa it will be on a trailer as I won't be able to get many miles on it beforehand. Jobs left to do include fitting the engine in the car (it has been in there before so everything lines up but it is doing it without scratching the paint up), total re-wire of the car. Doesn't sound like a lot but getting it all running just right will be tight in the timescale we have got. See you there.

Remmele Motorsport

Any chance of some help? I need to contact Remmele regarding some parts. I have phoned the numbers listed on their website and also emailed them - I can't get any joy. I can't even leave a message on the telephone number that they give. I want to put some business their way but can't get hold of them. Thanks.

As far as I know, contacting them is indeed extremely difficult. Not sure if anybody can help you with that during or after a transaction. I only know of Mark who comes there now and then.

Dave I have emailed them last week asking for a ubiball set up, they just don't respond.I know this is no help, but just to let ya know your not the only one they do not respond to.

Not the best way to run a business.

Engine looks nuts by the way
