Scottish Trueno rebuild - Nürburgring with pics!
right so I've not up dated this in a while so lets have at it!

I've been driving the arse of this thing and been loving every moment of it. I've swapped the carbon bonnet for a Goodline vented bonnet which i think looks are better. The coilovers are on and handles so so much better. During the rebuild the engine was one thing i never got round to after the Today engine i got ended up being bust and the time frame for Germany was getting very close!

So last night I was very lucky to come across someone selling a small port hi torque engine with some cams and head work so jamp on the chance. He even chucked in a 2nd small port high torque engine!!

so ill be modifying the engine for some power so stay tuned. I'll make some more videos as I go. I'll post a few pics below!

Yes I did! This was my wedding car and Fiona (my now wife!!) got dropped of by a friend of mine in his JM 1100R GTR. Made the best wedding car. Nothing like doing some rings around the bride ;-)

So a little update I suppose, stripped both engines to see how they look. Some big end bearings in both engine are destroyed to the point that i had to take a chisel to one of them to get them off!! (see pic below!)

Cranks don't look to bad all things considered. One better than the other but they are both 42mm cranks which is a plus!

I'm still trying to identify the cams. I will send these off to Pipercams to get an ID on them but measurements see to suggest that they are 8.60 lift.

SO the next immediate step is to get both cranks inspected, get bores sized and get the cams ID.

As you can see, the shell on the right has melted to one side

You can see the silver markings on the side of the rod where the shell managed to score
