  1. i think they are 6kg rear 8kg front were they bc coilovers as they are 230mm rear
  2. I would love to to take the pi** but you have given me no ammunition so I will say well done good to see you back on track I know how hard it can be to stay motivated with these big projects and this is pretty damn big I think you've earned a crayon or 2 as a treat
  3. I'd apologize for being mean but you know I wouldn't mean it
  4. Yea but who's the really odd looking crayon eater on the lathe
  5. "That's over 500HP per ton by my calculations " are you taking your body weight into that calculation sorry couldn't help myself
  6. All input welcome here not sure about the injectors, but I've modified the rails now so not an issue any more
  7. These are the insulating spacers I made to try to help with the heat issues also treated it to new manifold to head gaskets unlike the OBX setup there was no additional work to be done before installation it seems Jenvey know how to drill and tap holes all the way through and countersink as required to the right depth ( OBX take note) here is the manifold installed with vacuum pipework and fittings and this is how it stands now I have had it running but I need to balance the Throttle Bodies and sort out the accelerator cable there were two things I had to do which I wasn't expecting one was shave a bit more off my filler cap nothing major the other I wasn't expecting, the fuel rails didn't fit as per the OBX supplied rails the fuel injectors would have to be 15-20 mm longer was there a VQ fitted with much longer injectors ? I have 3 sets original UK , JAP import and GTR all the same length look at the picture not even close had to cut the mounting brackets to make them fit all ok now and before I go here's a couple of pictures that showcases the difference between the Jenvey and OBX ones
  8. I'm not sure where to start with this so here goes Just as the weathers getting reasonable and I can carry on with this project someone on here (Reeco) decides to sell a set of new Jenvey ITB's at not much more than I paid for my knock off OBX ones so just out of curiosity I had to have them At first glance they are identical but looking closer the Jenvey ones are far superior. The castings are better and of better quality aluminium with no impurities unlike the OBX ones The machining is more accurate, I haven't had to finish tapping holes or countersinking and everything lines up without me re-drilling holes The throttle bodies themselves open and close more smoothly The supplied fuel rails will also fit unlike the OBX ones After the initial fitting issues of the OBX ones were sorted the only thing they still occasionally do wrong is not closing fully causing it to idle a couple of hundred rpm faster than it should; on a track car this wouldn't get noticed on a road car it's a little irritating but not a big deal it's also doing it less with use So without a doubt the Jenvey ones are better but are they worth £1400 more than I paid for the OBX ones an extra £600-700 on a road car I'd say yes but not £1400 but that's just my opinion But now I do have a set of Jenvey ones for near OBX money I'm already preparing to swap them over I've already drilled and tapped the manifolds for the vacuum system and also made some insulating spacers to go between the manifolds and the throttle bodies to help overcome some of the temperature issues with the current setup
  9. It's taken you long enough to make your mind up But seriously good luck with this It's been a pleasure
  10. are you just trying to get rid of the evidence of your blurry photo's
  11. doing an awesome job Jake keep it up
  12. If it's a TOP SECRET project do we get to call it project Elrond, And if we do I want to be called Legolas from now on cos he was a pretty boy like me
  13. Hey did you just throw me under the bus ? Using my name along with words like slowing the project down. And after I offered you humanitarian aid as well
