Yeah it's been a while mate.
Good idea with regards to the forum.
TVR is in bits again at the moment as i am re designing the whole pulley system on it. The previous design was very poor and was executed very poorly also! (you wouldn't believe how bad unless i showed it you!)
Anyway i've bought a huge 250Amp alternator that i've moved to the battery side of the engine to keep the cable run short. Just got an Audi S4 deflector pulley that i need to make a stainless steel spacer for. Also got a billet anodized alloy tentioner pulley that i ordered from the states. Just need to machine the mounting bracket for the alternator now also and maybe get it anodized and then were back in bisiness. :-)
I put the biggest battery you've ever seen on the MK3 Golf Anni at the weekend. It's insane (comical to look at almost) and spins it over really well! So i'm also looking at how i can fit one on the TVR at the moment. Although it is looking impossible right now.
Still got the Puma and no it never got finished. As soon as i syop spending insane amounts of money on the TVR i'm back on with the Puma! But i do think it needs to be some really special horsepoer once it's done! :-)

I'll get some pix up when i get a chance mate. Car sounds EPIC with the new exhaust. I am 100% happy with that and the new colour/colours.
Still lots of parts i need to improve on.
Work in engineering so i'm good for the machining but i did notice his post about the wheel refurbing. :-) Got some BBS Split Rim RXII's for the Anni that need doing.....

after going in the TVR today it is hands down the fastest car on the planet!!! no seriously it sucks kids in the intake and the exhaust blows tree's down.

the power in ANY gear is what most people only dream off and when its got traction it actually defies physics!!!

good work lad, am sure the lads/lassess would be privilaged to have you at the next meet. its stunning as it is fast.

got the pics to put up when your ready just let me know. nice seeing you mate.

berry stick a 4.0 V8 out of a 1992 7 series into a 1989 316i e30 coupe for the same price, its been done!! you get the engine for £400, 300BHP and 300 FT/LB as STANDARD, t. all you need is big balls and some skills. apparantly its another DONT drive in the wet car. the e30 316i weighs 1070kg standard, strip that and engine n box its 700kg, put the V8 in and its still under a ton.
proper cheap brute.

oh and if your stupid then that particular v8 has no worries handling 2 turbo's on lowish boost, just the cooling that needs to be taken care of.

and if youve got a little more money then they did do a 750li. that bastard is V12, here what someone did
