Rear main seal shit itself a while back and lost interest for a bit.
I am going to get it to at least have a run or 2 on the track and then I'll decide what I do with it from there.

I have it on my turbo diesel Patrol. It works awesome. No fires. It prevents them.

Finally managed to clear a spot in the workshop. IT BEGINS!

Started stripping, got a little bit done.

Had some rats in there... fuckin...

Manifold off...

Turns out the PCV line was broken going into the manifold and had been for some time and as a result there was grunge all around the area.

Test fitting...

Stay tuned!

I'd rather that very tidy looking red 'tina than some Kuga. Just saying...

As far as SA is concerned, if you follow regulations you can pretty much do what you want. This was advice given me from Tonkin Engineers (in SA). If you plan to do something, consult them and go by the book of what they say. If you were to have an accident and the mod wasn't approved, you are going to cop it hard, likewise if they have signed off on it, they will be reamed til kingdom come. As such having something properly engineered has its advantages, the only disadvantage as I see it is cost but only on a short term basis. Worst case scenario is it would be the cheapest. (if you catch my drift...) ;)

Too many cool Aussie cars. A strange problem to have and a big one when you are a motor head and have only so much cash and only so much room!

hate to say it but musso's are merc's made under licence in some third world country.
all the driveline is made by mercedes and fitted by people getting paid 10 cents an hour

So what do you think about great wall then...

The worst are the wanks with v6 and a chev badge.. haha..

Crossflow single barrel will be the longest you can get without going custom.

Go over all earth connections, and while you're at it clean up the fuse box. It is a good thing to do on the occasion anyway.

Nice mate! Keep at it. They're a cool piece of kit, that's for sure!

My pacemakers came by courier this morning with a pair of hi-flow cats. Ceramic-ed up all sexy and shit!

Should also have the old tina to the zorst shop by the end of next week for the intake making... :)
