    Full size tank will be alloy and foam filled.

    The new tank will be deeper, so does anyone know if the VDO dip tube senders can ...
  2. New Parts - New Battery

    Picked up a new battery at Autosport, on Odyssey PC950, this will mount inside the crossmember in the cabin on the passsenger side - freeing up space for other things in the front of the car. Also fitting a "normal" isolator switch as my fancy electrical one has failed....

  4. Cooling my Turbo Engine

    One of the things that came up in convevrsation was coolant flow which in an ideal world, needs to be in the region of 1L/min/kw to stop localised boiling - well as i Have over 350Kw it is doubtfull that i will find a pump with 350L/min flow, but my DC pumps are rated max 115l/min.
    The figures I was quoted were of course for an ideal world for a turbo engine, but the basic idea is the higher flow the better. A second problem with the DC pumps is that i was running their controller, so at times ...
