I honestly thought JayRome would come across as having a slight mental defect considering the crazyness of the car :)

 

Very well articulated, i liked the interview - well done mate, its a testament to you (and your undiagnosed disease).

HID stands for "High Intensity Discharge", or if you dont adjust them properly, "Hi I'm a Dickhead".

finally getting to enjoy driving this around to meets and just anywhere really... 

2200cc injectors idle like stock on e85

 

Also found out my fuel cell is fairly big... E85, tune is average, did 135km and gauge says i used just under 1/4 tank (also cruise control helps)

Alloy cover to tie in the 6bolt lower cover. Later model head does not have mounting points below the cam gears for timing cover. So at times the timing cover can flex and touch the cam gears.

It has been 10 years or so since i installed the reverse head for shits and giggles, was a budget build so reusing valves and springs etc was the go. Probably time I rebuild the head properly.

BC springs
Switched from HKS 272 to GSC S1
