    Absolutely in awe of your dedication and pursuit of perfection. Love this thread.

    I'm late to the party, however on the fuel front, modern fuel killed the mocal high pressure fuel lines I had in my truck after a year. After a bit of research I found that you can buy teflon lined fuel lines which are ok to run even pure ethanol on. Carburetors do not like our modern fuel though and all of the brass parts oxidise and you get a build up of green crusty stuff if the car stands too long. I envy most (ALL) of this build, especially the being able to buy decent fuel to put in it. I love the attention to detail you've put in.

    I've had them weekly for a month or so. I think they've killed themselves.

    Do you believe or not. You're muddying the waters now. You can't mention them like this. Also, singular, or plural? and lee and perrins or not?

    What didn't happen? No idea what you're referring to?

    Really reminds me of this visually, and that's no bad thing.
  8. Twin turbo 350z build.

    a procharger isn't a turbo, it's a centrifugal supercharger lol. It's also significantly easier to fit as the exhaust isn't spinning the turbine, a belt is. There's no need for custom complicated exhaust systems, fitting turbos behind the engine etc. Prochargers are cool, don't get me wrong, but they're definitely not a turbo.

    Rod bearings going is generally a sign of an oil issue. Could be too little oil, an oil pump failure/issue, oil pump not uprated to match other parts in the engine so not enough of it is being delivered, too thin oil, oil breaking down as a result of high temperatures, petrol in the oil causing the oil to break down, too high RPM's for a long time, too much clearance between the rod journal and the bearing would cause it to spin the bearing. Gutted to see this, unfortunately there's a lot of possibilities that could cause it, I'd definitely start looking with the oil system though.

    It wouldn't surprise me if it was just to brag about all your money on forums to be honest. You'd probably have far better conversation about these things on an electric car forum...

    Oh that's perdy!

    I'd buy this Nova for the asking price, £23,000 seems like a lot of car for the money: https://goo.gl/DVrJJc
