Yeah I was kinda wondering that. Not really sure what the big deal is about hiding the mods hes gonna do. Eh....just my $.02 though.
Actually, this wasn't a joke. There'* a little 'tude involved. (Bullet is joking, dbtk2 isn't)

Remember I didn't start this topic, Shawn. And people are curious for a reason. This is a Series 1. What'* been done to it and what'* planned haven't really been done to one yet. That'* why.

The reason I haven't shared exactly what'* up is that people tend to jump the gun and try to copy what I do before it'* proven to work. And this winter is getting a bit more extreme.

Other than some minor disassembly to find my ticking noise, no work has been done yet, and won't begin until all the parts are here. I still have my replacement parts to purhcase.

Water Pump
Timing Chain
Timing Chain damper (tensioner)
Misc Gaskets

These items will be replaced because it'* probably time. I'll probably do the cam sensor while I'm in there as well.

I find it funny that Wren has to resort to S2 parts since there is no support for the ole car.... however...he'* doing some cool stuff that will hopefully pan out and help all the other S1 diehards.

Funny..... didn't Series 1 use those parts before the Series 2 was designed?

Boost 'brung it' last time. And he drove 3000 miles home as second-best of the Bill'*.

Seriously though.. adding any gauges, cosmetics or is this strictly performance only?

Hmmmm.... only one toy will be visible. No cosmetics at all. Well, maybe 2 things visible. One in the cockpit, one under the hood. All the rest is invisible.

I'm targeting 50hp this winter. It'll end up no lower than 30ish, no higher than 50. Plus the slicks of course.
