As its been 10 months since the first in my series of regular blogs, I thought it was about time to do another.
Its been an interesting year so far and it's had its fair share of challenges, but not all of the challenges I expected. I imagined that getting enough work to keep me going would be the first hurdle, but it turns out that even if I were to clone myself I'd have enough work to keep us both going for the next year....no, the hard bit is actually getting the work done, not for the reasons you might imagine, but that's another blog entirely.
Still, I've managed to complete a small fraction of what I hoped to do this year, so it's not all bad. Amongst some of the more every day jobs like servicing, geos and a bit of rolling road tuning, I also managed to squeeze out a few serious projects.
First I managed to install a K20 into the back of an MR2 which turned out to be an awesome little car.
Next up was a no holds barred build on a very tidy S2 Elise that had unfortunately suffered from a rover k series. This was a monster spec build with a 2.2l K20 on throttle bodies producing 285hp and 206lb ft on our own very conservative rolling road, it's certainly the quickest car I've driven to date.
And now I'm coming towards the end of another lovely K20 install in an Elise belonging to someone with a very similar ethos to me - simplify and add lightness. Although this one is a more modest 2l engine build, it'll still produce the goods and make this car very rapid indeed.
See you in 10 months (joke).
