    Today Is The Day!!!

    After a long, long, long 6 month wait, many swear words, copious amounts of cash, many miles driven and prayers to the gods of every religion, at 5pm today man and machine will be reunited in a tear-filled moment the likes of which have not been seen since I smacked my finger with a 5lb lump hammer at the weekend breaking my old kitchen up!

    I actually hesitated as to whether I should actually put this thread up in case it jinxed the whole bloody thing and I looked to the horizon to see a small mushroom cloud over Nottingham under which is a crater where my car once was!

    Next step is to rack some miles up, down to Interpro for a check over and then over to Weston for a remap and boost controller!! Lost of blatting up and down the A1 between now and Dragonball to get her tested and run-in!!

    Oh the joy, the anxiety!!

    I do have to reiterate my thanks to Paul E and CJ though who have helped immensely with getting this back on track for me - thanks guys - invaluable help.

    And to Dave, Jason and Jody at Interpro for sorting the rest out!

    Glad to hear there is light at the end of the tunnel Ellis!!

    Unfortunately the light at the end of most tunnels is a freight train coming your way!!

    If everything is ok, what are you going to rant about next?

    Your excitement certainly courses through the veins of that post Ellis. Good news indeed. I have however been away for an eternity - what happened to the Supe?

    Well . . . . . . . . piston rings went on the original engine so we thought a quick and efficient fix would be to fit another short motor! Did that and a crank seal blew! Fitted another seal, that blew too!! Took engine out again and took it back to whence it came! A rebuild was decided upon with new forged internals etc etc etc! As its been a 'hospital' job at my garage its taken longer than normal to complete. Tubbies have been refurbed, stem seals done and everything and anything that could be replaced, renewed or refurbed has been!!

    Thats 6 months condensed into 6 lines!

    Havard - next rant could be about anything!!! I'm on the lookout for new material!!!
