Bit the bullet!!

A place for BWA'ers, wannabee's or just those with a 'passing' interest in straight line speed. (You see what we did there?)

Ok, bit delayed as the spec has changed and getting the other bits together, working out the compression nand getting some additional machining will add to the time.

Buzzers knows this, but.....

I've gone for the same spec engine as above, but with a T3/T4 Hybrid turbo, thottle bodies and mappable ignition/fueling.

Upped the clutch and scrapped the NOS!!

Which is nice...

Looking to be going together in the newyear.
