Sure goes alot better than it used to, lots of $$ add up fast tho  doing an engine thats not commonly boosted

Turbos A TA3410  (t3/t4) AR 0.70 compressor and 0.48 turbine housing,  spools up nice and fast

It was great to see this car on Gumboot Rally, I was very impressed with the quality of the engine build and there is no better way to prove reliability than running a GR!

Cheers,  was super happy with how it went, I had only driven it about 400km and dyno time (and about 10km on the replacement gearbox)  before doing gumboot.  will  be good to  see what it can do once i sort the wastegate out, the valiant do the whole run no problems?

The Valiant never missed a beat all weekend, not bad for an old girl. I think the car was in better shape than I was at the end of the event.

Hoist question, I’m wanting to put one at mine but would need to be outdoor on slab like yours.

 

what did it cost you? You get a company to do all of it and sign it off?

dose the hoist need a cover or is it fine outside?

 

cheers

I done the concrete myself, im on swampy ground so has 5x 3.6m piles concreted in under the center area with a 200mm thickening and 200 thick ring beam footing around the edge of the pad, was almost 4 cube of concrete which worked out about $900, hoist is a motorex base model $2100 delivered, 

So far been mint just keep it lubed well with spray grease, made a weather cover for the hydraulic pack and is all good
