    Engine is back from JNL Racing. Massive thanks to JP for the swift turnaround and impeccable advice / engineering skills.

    I didn't hang about. Wanted to mockup everything. Glad I did as lots of puzzles to solve and plenty of plumbing to get on with before it all comes out again. It's going to be a busy engine bay that's for sure.








    It all fits.. just!!

            Gonna be a tight job doing oil filter changes, might be worth doing a remote filter housing?

            Bay looks the definition of tidy, well done!

                    Nice trainers

                    Joking aside- looking at what you've done so far, this is gonna be the Doggies when it's finished
