Have stripped the engine down as looking to make it more stealth.

While we're in there we've posted more galleries to help with oil pressure. Plan is to have 275hp

Bit of time in the garage tonight while it's not too cold.

Final dry mockup of dry sump system.

Have figured out where the shifter needs to be

Pretty happy the satin finish. Think it will look great when it's all together.

Doing the bit I hate. Mocking up how to do the exhaust.

Was going to put turbo up high and outside but didn't look right. It's going to be stealth now as it's hide inside the body. Might need A Sind that ducts air out

Something like this I think

Been enjoying working on the little 7 power plant. So much so that the race car is still in the truck

Little bit more progress tonite

I'm liking the look of the engine with the satin black case and then alloy barrel and head. Here where I'm at tonight

Carrillo rods fitted
Crank polished and measured
Forged Turbo pistons fitted.
Head back from a service and a little porting. Full stainless valves and degreed cams

Well no turning back now.

The old engine and electrics have now been removed

The mockup engine is in place. Mounts for the quaife reversing box and engine are getting made now.

Amazing how suck a little engine takes up a lot of space.
