Yeah the old manifold wasn't too flash, gave it to one of the members here who had it fixed, but wasn't cheap. Got a practically brand new reproduction factory manifold that has a modified intake (2 holes like the Brocks plus the floor is ribbed). Was a good learning experience changing it. Shame things fell through with that pink slip, would love to be driving it now, but have to do more work so it will get through a blue slip when the time (and money) comes.

Had the VT tuned again today, one bloody lead had died so time for a new set of leads and plugs to get it going again.

I replaced the intank pump with a walbro one and it is still running out of fuel around 4000rpm. Looks like I will be fitting the surge tank and the twin 044's.

Was the same one. Strange it went and was put back. I thought it would have been torched for sure, the last car dumped there (Tarago) lasted about 3 days I think before it was burnt.

I'm with Shannons. No issues, and now the VL is unregoed they have put it on laid up cover. $17/mth covers me for theft and damage while it's locked away. But if I get it out on the streets and have a prang I'm not covered, need to call them and change it back to full cover when the time comes to get it back on the road.

Bought a new car as I get my lisence back in 2 weeks...

1970 ke20, completely mint and original, 70,000ks etc. White with factory red leather/vinyl.. Yep, pimp..

Still deciding what I'm going to put in it, it will still look 100% mint and standard though.
(Likely to be a CA as you can't engineer a rotary in them Only weighs 700 odd kgs)

Excited.
