    This could be the way we go. Trigger off the camshaft.

    Default R17 GT Custom LOL

    Update from GekoEng last Monday 4th June
    "All porting and polishing finished today. Ports are 37.5 diam. Ideal for 40mm DCOE Webers. Now clean and polish valves and prepare for fitting. Do a dummy assembly for combustion chamber and clearances."
    Wednesday 6th June: I've been told today by grouch
    "For all the pestering you gave me to get a special motor built, I should make you come and clean all the aluminium shavings from the head and inlet ports all over my workbench and floor."

    Lucky I had an excuse not to help with cleaning, away in Tassie

    "There we are. Head and inlet manifolds done. Still a good bit to do but that is the messy part over"

    Good to hear John...as soon as the inlet manifold arrives from J-Y, Ray can start on mine too!

    You need not shop overseas if you don't want to. But that ecu looks pretty good! Lambda control. Nice! That feature set reads pretty true of most of the $1000 Aussie Haltech's either way. (see comparison table toward the bottom to compare inputs / outputs.. wait.. you you must have already done all this..)

    Sorry John, I'm sure you have been over all this. I love the ramble.

    They are often hiring a spot at work for some kind of show, and they are bloody nice to deal with. They move their cars when told, they pay their invoices on time, they all seem pleasant and polite.

    Haven't decided if I will be at CC&C on Sunday...depends on the weather...if there's wind I may go windsurfing instead!
