Yeah it’s faster then I thought it would be. I’ll try get both my cameras working next time I’m out as this one failed to record 2 of the 3 sessions I did.

Yes JC5 rebuilt with Quaife. Chris from EFI said it was trying to make a lot more torque but he kept knocking it back for reliability and drivability on track.
Can you please share the part no for the uprated pistons and rods? Yoi thread just make me smile and inspired me.

Wossner 9-5-1 pistons. I used these instead of 8-5-1 to give it more low down punch. I used 83mm which I believe takes it to 2013cc I bought these from Engine Dynamics.

The rods are the generic PEC ones that are sold by a few company’s. I bought these off eBay.

The valves are Supertek. Inconel exhaust and stainless nitrate coated inlet. They have catcams valve springs to.

You can buy the whole lot from engine dynamics who offer a forum discount on most things.

Got some steering wheel buttons and holder today. Going to use the right momentary as a horn switch and the left on/off to switch the boost solenoid on/off, effectively mid and high boost. Does anyone know if I will be able to turn the solenoid on and off whilst driving? Don’t want to damage the ECU.

I used to run switchable boost using a ford amal valve, and I used to switch that whilst driving, so I would assume that, yes, you’d be ok to switch the boost as you’re driving. Ultimately, it’s been mapped to run the full boost, so it will make no difference to the ecu imo.

Yeah it’s fine on low boost, think Chris said it was 280-290 and it drives fine on low. I was just checking if I’d damage anything by turning it on whilst the cars running. I think I’m just worrying to much 😂

Was looking for a rain light and came across this on google, have ordered one to try myself

That was my old race car! The previous owner had stuck the rain light on the boot with screws and a bit of silicon so I found another boot release badge and drilled it out. Just a bit tidier but I would definitely mount it inside at the top of the rear window which is where I now have the rain light on my current car.
