I am so not ready for this, can we put it off for a week  :wacko:

I've just run the Mira for the first time with its new, home-made, hybrid turbo. It seems ok, but I need to get a new hose from the turbo to the intercooler as the  current ones not taking the temp or pressure ... I've no idea if the new turbo will hold together for more than 5 minutes or at any real pressure/rpm.
Both cars are a mess and filthy and I've still got some tinkering to do with that turbo once I get the new hose fitted. I was hoping to tidy up some of the rusty bits on the rally car, but I've been messing around with that damn turbo all week instead, so you'll just have to take the cars as they come (if the mira gets there) ... I should at least be able to drive them through a car wash and give them a quick vac to get rid of the worst of it.

Looking forward to seing you Glynn (Sirion) and all the rest. The Mira with the huge turbo could be fun. Get it wound way up and it will go off like letting go of a balloon  !!

HE HE.

I'm still not sure I'll have the AZ-1 there - still trying to pin down a problem with it dumping oil out of the breather (It's not rings but it could be valve stem oil seals or maybe just the fact that I'm using 5W40 synthetic oil rather than the standard 10W40).

I've got another possible plan to try tomorrow, and if that doesn't work you'll get to see my very tatty pajero mini instead! (not on track though :))
