Nice build pal. What's it like to drive? Any torque steer? Have you finished running it in yet and had it back to Emerald?

I thought my build had some bad luck! Sounds like you need to invest in some tipex to mark when bolts are torqued! I know It came in handy when i rebuilt my engine

Are you using Imgur?

Great build - you're not too far away from me - I used Auto engineering at Chard junc to machine my current engine build.
