Water/Methanol Injection, Hybrid T3, GT3 Chargecooler, 2 Rads, 325mm Rotors on one off Alumunium Bells, Wilwood Superlights, lots of other bits and bobs. Its brilliant fun, from the outside it looks like a slightly rough 900 (lots of stone chips). Had to take the Carlsson front bumper off though, was a right pain cleaning, toddlers, dogs and assorted wild life out of it ;-). "does it eat gas?" 16mins Run Time based on 1.8barnopsamrpm in 5th, taking into account drag and wind resistance, based on zero head/tail/side wind. But thats accademic as according to my math even with the water inj on the rods would have bent from conducted heat & Pressure after about 4 and a half mins, hence why it only runs 1.8bar for about 15secs at around 3000rpm in 4th and 5th. For road use it holds about 1.5bar up to 4000rpm then holds 1.3 to the red line. Plans for the next engine include under piston oil sprays, 2 oil coolers, dry sump system, 92mm overbore and cossie forged pistons. Thats the one for 400bhp. I plan to stop at some point, I'm just not sure where yet ;-) Matt
