    Neil used that setup on his turbonutter car, but sadly, we can’t ask him about it :(

    Re: Alfa Romeo 3,0 V6 12V engine 6000 KM

    The 155 V6 had the water rail across the top too. Probably GTV as well?

    The 166 Turbo is a 12V, but is kind of an odd duck being a mix of 12V & 24V bits I think. Very rare too.

    To be fair, it’s a very pale imitation of what it once was. We only went because we had nothing better to do and it’s only 30 miles away. The weather wasn’t kind either, which doesn’t help. Nor do...

    Re: Tarmac Rally Stratos Build begins

    I think by far the best mod for the gearbox is the one Neil ended up doing, swap if for an MR2 turbo unit.

    I suppose the value for money calculation has to include what I get out of it..and for me, that's almost nothing these days. I'm not looking at new projects, nor for parts for a current one, and as a...

    I had a gander at the steel monocoque, and it’s a lovely thing indeed. Not sure I understand the target audience though, but then I guess I wouldn’t!

    Indeed, just making the point that they aren’t pollution free at the point of use unless operated properly…and as we know, no plant operator ever has skimped on servicing etc…

    Until there is a very significant investment into the generation of green H2, burning it in an ICE is way worse than using the oil directly, apart from local air pollution (which can be mitigated)....

    Re: LB Stratos on Late Brake Show

    Have to assume he’s driven at least a few and didn’t like them I’d think. Given his collection, I can’t imagine his first port of call for anything that took his fancy would have been a replica.

    Re: E10 (Ethanol 10) Petrol is coming

    I intend using premium fuel from now on to limit exposure to Ethanol. I’m pretty sure most of the components in the two kits are OK with E10 except the aluminium tank and fuel rail in the Westfield.
