I'm not sure, but I can remember seeing exhaust temps of 900+ degrees C on the MFD thing, so little wonder parts of the manifold had started to melt away ... Sort of, if you check out Neilo's Project thread, he's had the same manifold as what I currently have in a box in the back of the Disco. :-)
Glad to hear you've stopped interfering with K's Mum, and finally moved out. At least those Plain Clothed Police that have been staking you out can get on with some proper work, rather than worry about another strange Pom taking advantage of a Senior Citizen !
Hope you don't get caught by the Fuzz once you're up and running. I bumped into a couple of Britain's finest last weekend whilst out on my bike. Fortunately only got done for doing 84 in a 60 .... 60 seconds earlier and it would have been 56 mph more !
Git, we've had nothing but rain or freezing temperatures for ages now ... I'm so looking forward to my Aussie trip next year, just hurry up and get your 34 Bathurst ready !!
How on earth did you manage to melt a manifold...tut tut tut. Is Neilo making you one or something? I'm sure there's some of those space shuttle heat resistant tiles on Ebay if you get desperate - held together with some cable ties and a bit of gaffa tape you'll be fine.
Phew - got our own gaff now - so don't have to flirt with K's mum anymore - it was getting embarassing.
Just ordered some Nismo front suspension from Japan to replace my worn bushes (overkill maybe?) and got hold of some new Performance Friction discs to get the beast through its roadworthy, so hopefully I'll scrape the summer track season...
I'm all good thanks - got a job working for the government body responsible for promoting road safety - I haven't told them what car I drive yet though! Car not quite registered as it's failed it's compliance test on having hairline cracks in the brake discs surfaces. They obviously haven't seen the Mr Mole definition of brake disc cracks here... Still, it hasn't stopped my annoying the local Holden V8 Ute drivers (only on the way to and back from the test centre of course officer...)
You been on track lately? It must be about time for another Ring trip isn't it?
