Ok thanks Rudy, Ill try them aswell.

(I thought you went by "GRacer" these days?? Back to "R U NUTZ" now eh?

Ummmm, as far as the engine goes... heres the update!

Engine back
Turbos back
G/Box back
all reconditioned, turbos hi flowed.

Engine is fully assembled with everthing on it, plenum, turbos, hoses, wiring & the gearbox is bolted on the end, now I tell you its looking very heavy and is quite a few steps away from the car so now I have to borrow an engine lifter, lift it onto the crossmember & bolt to mounts then lift in front of car, drop onto floor, use engine lifter on car and lift over engine and back onto axle stands, then use engine lifter through top of engine bay, lift engine up and bolt crossmember to chassis!!  

WALAA!!! Whole lot goes in at once and I dont have to install fiddly pipes & turbos in the engine bay!!

Sadly though Im behind schedule and even though I should have it running in time to cruise down to the SDU drags, I wont have time to get the Link & all tuned up by Damian so I cant take it for a blat down the strip, dont wanna thrash it till its run in and I got it tuned up and Im rid of the Mines chipped ECU....Id hate to go though this all over again!  But hey at least its gonna be fully fresh.
