plus all the other extraneous crap on it... it's a tight fit, the required 10mm clearances will seem generous.

Hey NES

When you get the shits with the 5L and throw another tantrum,spit the dummy & chuck a wobbly as before.
Don't panic because I have put aside a motor at work for you to try next.

Yeah the SS is right in front of it and when I spun it round to drag it away I thought a good photo opportunity. I know about all the removals of extra bits and want an auto gearbox (to keep the misses happy).

I am so much more happy with the conversion now even if it is costing extra and will definately be happier in the long run.

If you haven't grown up by 50, you don't have to.

Oh so you mean like this then?


Using EFILIVE to hook up to the car computer. It shows all faults etc and live RPM, speed too. I'll use this to remove the airbag warning amongst other things.

It's a shitty old laptop that I can leave permanently in the car if needed.
