The more the merrier, Paul. Maybe your joining in will breath some life back into it. Welcome to the mayhem!

Thanks Bud.

I'm probably going to cheat and pay someone to do it all for me.

No time or space to do it myself.

To each his own. That's not cheating and it will progress much faster I'm sure.

This mod has been done so many times since I started mine that I've done running changes to adopt improvements that others have come up with. I bought my crate motor in 2005. It's been a long journey, but someday... :D

It will defiantly get done quicker if I pay..but I'll end up with a zetec installed and fully mapped with the new wide band fitted too.

I've had so many issues with the lotus twincam I'll be glad when I can actually drive it. And I'll obviously enjoy the increase in torque, till its time to move her on.
