    I bought one when I was trouble shooting the Lexcen, handy bit of gear to have in the tool box!

    Yea I thought the same, I reckon one of those pieces of kit I won’t use often, but when you do its invaluable…

    Beats guessing  :yes:

    And with how cheap special tools are these days why wouldn’t you purchase!

    Bought an air chisel set the other day in Bunnings for $14…

    I remember borrowing one as a kid as I couldn’t afford the $300.

    That’s so true isn’t it.  Tools are ridiculously cheap.  That noid set was $30.  “he who dies with the most tools wins” ha ha

    That’s funny Gary as on Friday at work I was thinking how much gear I have between the building and mechanic stuff it’s a bucket load and more to come, who doesn’t like a new tool

    Managed to get the pins for the under dash, as they are still available through GM.  Funny how some things are, others are long gone.  Also found a place called Gen 2 Automotive 10 mins from me.  Its run by a pair of second gen enthusiasts Danni and Ben.  They run its as a part time business selling and wrecking them to fund their own “obsession”.  Really nice people, and they had a mint dash facia.  So that’s pretty much that for now until the bonnet arrives.  Happy days.

    Also got the engine all adjusted up, idles beautifully, can get it down well below 800rpm.  Thought I would also fit the trumpet screens as that’s an accident waiting to happen.

    Got onto a company in the UK called ITG Air Filtration, EFI Hardware (thanks to IJ) put me onto them.  They look like having a nice filter set up specifically for the Jenvey, so waiting to hear back from them on that.

    Yea I have Cav, its all good having a low idle when its warm but when its cold bit of a pita keeping it running.  I was just paying around to see how low it would go.

    Just got sent the images by Troy the Street Machine photographer for the engine feature.  Super happy with how they turned out.

    Nice job 👌 looks great.

    I find an infrared thermometer handy for diagnosing misfiring cylinders as well, the exhaust primary temp will be much cooler on the dead or misfiring cylinders.

    Thanks for that, yea I have one, it’s actually good for a broad idea of how well the ITB’s are synced too.   I didn’t think of using it for a misfiring cylinder though!  I have a “tune equip” box, it’s starting to get rather full!

    Its alive :good:    First drive just then.  Holy crap it was insane before, its now a mixture of angry and insane, just awesome.

    Bit of work to do on the street tune, she pops and farts like the morning under an Indian curry night, but actually apart from that quite docile and driveable at normal speeds.  Relatively quiet too.

    But holy shit hit he throttle and its next dimension.  Lights it up instantly, but also tracks quite straight.

    Yea at some stage.  But tbh after all its put through in the last 12 months I just want to take it out on the streets and enjoy it for a while.  I am going to admit its a bit of handful and a little scary right now, so I will just drive it and get used to the new power and how it puts it down.  Then eventually run that bloody 10, and tick that one off my bucket list finally.

    And great to hear the bonnet is in paint.  As with all Franks work its looks sensational and it’s just straight off the gun. Have to turn my attention back to 3D printing the grills for the cutouts.  Going to shelve the air boxes for now, but getting cool air up through those vents can only be a good thing.

    He is hoping to buff it this week, so I am guessing maybe next week.  At least I have the other bonnet on there now so I can drive it.  Although it looks like yet another wet weekend coming, so probably no drive time :cry:
