How Your Car Sits

Recommended Posts

MM, have you been to Barrie somewhat recently? Saw a super clean 850 Turbo just like yours parked at the waterfront.

 

Nope, definitely wasn't me.  I haven't been to Barrie in years.

Matt, the car looks awesome. The wheels, the red bike rails, everything just works. Very nice.

Thanks, I need to paint my wiper plugs and install them. Looks like I lost the paint I had mixed during the move.

Lame pic that doesn't really show MY car, but I don't post many pics of my wife's R so I guess it counts.  Had a great time, even with the rain today.

Broke it, stupid serpentine belts and skipped cambelt teeth.

So head must come off and valves be inspected etc

No they just reminding me that the same thing happened to the T4 as well haha

Will be fixed soon enough, I'm too in love with the 5 cyl now to go back haha.

Need to make 500whp then I can focus on air ride and AWD etc.

That much HP, you might as well pull the engine and use sleeves. I don't know of many people who made 500 whp on RN engines and didn't crack cylinder walls.

Motor is fully built, darton sleeves, forged rods, pistons, enem cams, bigger valves, uprated valve springs etc etc
