    Taking pride in what you’re doing is never a bad thing..

    Perhaps not, but when one of the main motivators was to be no emotional attachment to the car, so I wouldn’t be upset when it failed in some way or another, it might be counter-productive :P

    LOL but by taking pride in it and using better quality parts the chances of it failing are lessened….

    Perhaps… although with my other car I don’t have the same cheap attitude, and it hasn’t helped me. The last 2nd last engine rebuild in my Statesman cost me more than this entire Lolvo project (including the Lolvo itself), and it failed, which really hurt.

    Stuff putting this much effort into a car and not having any emotional attachment.  There has to be something to keep you motivated.  Nothing wrong with getting some good gear for bits that matter.  Is that one of those Holley billet pumps, they are a nice piece of gear, like the way its integrated with the mini surge (if I am seeing that right)

    Cheers mate. Yeah it is one of the Holley’s with the AI tech integrated surge tank. Very nice bit of gear!

    Update time. I’ve discovered I have less and less patience for progress photos as I get older, but an update video is pretty easy.
