I get the feeling you do not want the gearbox to move or are you bolting it down because the crime is so high in JoBurg..... :lol: :lol:

:wink:

Nice work are you hotting up the rotary engine or going something more interesting.????

Keep photo's coming.

Yes the idea is no movement at all must happen

Yip the fuel lines have been upgraded to Ethanol compatable
So with new setup the boost definitely will be turned up
