He came out in the low boost but he drove it and he had no idea it was charged.
I was trying to get him to put his foot down but he has never liked going over 5k rpm in any car hes ever owned so he didnt realise the power.

This means its gonna be more fun when i take him out in this as he really wont be expecting the power.

He wanted to know what was that important and i couldnt think of anything else to tell him.

Fcukin' 'ell lads, you're the wrong side of 30 and can't tell your dad that you've spent a bit of money on a toy? Laugh

I was bothered when I was a 21 year old full-time university student and kept it quiet then, but that's justifiable. LOL

I guess it depends if they are still living at home Unsure I mean when you blow 7k on a charger while your dad pays for most of your way and puts a roof over your head you can imagine he would be pretty p*ssed Laugh

Well I have my Dad to blame for my interest in making things go faster, comes in handy when he has a go at me about 'wasting' money on my car.

He has a Mini with a 1550CC Longman engine, and he paid around

Will be lots more to come!

Have to build the head, fit it, etc yet.

I probably won't bother taking any more photos when I change the rods, would be a bit repetitive.

Not the wrong side of yet, I'm only 28 Smile

I had a bad habit of over spending and getting in deep shit when I was younger and living at home. He bailed me out on numerous occassions.

Now I don't live at home and have a decent girlfriend he is worried I will put us both in a bad situation. That's why I thought it best not to tell him. Now that he knows I conveniently left my credit report open on the works computer so he could see I have bought all this stuff and I'm no in shit.

lol. good stuff! fair play to your dad for that. When I was 17 I went halves with my dad on the 205, we rebuilt the 1.6 engine together and started preparing it for trackdays. Then I decided to buy the Mi16 engine and we worked on that conversion together as well. Don't feel like I'd have anything to hide from him financially if I'd spent a little too much on the car. He'd understand Big grin.

Well last night I stripped the bottom end down which involved removing the sump, oil pump, windage tray and lower dip-stick tube so I could change the rods over.

Changed the rods over fine, as re-assembled as done previously.

The SAENZ rods felt much better on the piston gudgeon pins, and were all properly sized unlike the Chinese rods. I also found there was 6-7 thou less end-float on the big-end crank journal with these rods.

Anyhow, after the bottom end was all back together, I didn

I'm building this engine completely from boxes of spare parts. Have accrued all sorts due to stripping down a number of engines over the last couple of years.

Here is a good example of what i'm dealing with, it's sad but I could tell you where every nut, bolt or washer should go:

I happen to have done some metrology work done recently, mainly looking at surface finishes. i too can second that 50 RA is indeed a very high standard of finish, especially considering the distance and area that this is over. Top work Rich!!!

Yes, around 1,3 uncompressed, and 1,2 once torqued up.
