Nice fabrication work
Yep. He made me a t15 manifold before I decided to go 1293. His work is always top quality, and well worth the money.

Good luck man, when do you expect to finish it?
Should be ready for MITP 2019, hopefully. Just a money issue really. £600/700 ish for the head, £714 for the quaife atb diff, god knows now much for the gearbox, med 1.3 rockers £250 ish ect. Just buying bits when I can. I could reuse the old drop gears, rockers ect, but it would be nuts with the power, and would be waiting for it to go wrong. I want it done right first time round, which is another way of saying money pit.

You dont need those 1.3 rockers. Thats money you could spend on something else. If you've got money to burn then get some, otherwise decent standard ones will do
I've not got money to burn, but worth spending the money, and getting a set of decent rockers. I don't think it will make much of a difference to the total cost with the way It's going. The gearbox and diff is going to cost a fortune. Looking at the minispares helical evo kit. Either that or the clubman gearset. The gearbox will be mostly new apart from the casing and forks ect. :/ Diff will be a Quaife atb. I want the engine to last for years, so needs must.

Not updated this for a while. I've had a nightmare trying to find a pre verto grey clutch cover. Spoke to Avonbar, and should get one in a couple of weeks. Sorting out a minispares order as we speak, and bought a MED pre verto HD arm kit. I'm booked into turbo phil to get a fast road/trackday spec cylinder head in December.
