Yep - if the wing is fitted, an extension will reach the bolt through the access panel.

Nut should be captive, yes. Have you found the access panel in the inner wheel arch, which when removed makes the bolt easier to get at?

It's a captive nut. There's a small removable panel in the inner wheel arch that allows you to get at the bolt.

yes phil, they do...2-4 weeks for delivery..and to be honest i dont think it's worth it even if we had the time...with so much material removed i think detonation would be a problem and running boost above half a bar wouldnt be advisable with a thicker gasket...especially at £139 a pop...we can use the full engine from the project as it's checked out ok and revisit this engine at some point in the future. It will need to be rebored at a minimum and we havent checked the head that came off this block yet, so that may actually be ok. At the moment it's all a time crunch. hopefully we can get this engine built up and running for the weekend...that leaves us next to no time to get a power run and weighed...but there is always a chance
Why do you need a power run and weighing at this stage of the season?

I just thought it was required prior to competing, im sure I was told I needed one. it would certainly make life easier if I didnt. that being said it needs to go on the rollers anyway.

To be scored you will need it, but not to compete, it's a scoring requirement not an MSA one.

I will try and get it sorted, I would like to know how far off I am as a starting point.

Yeah that's the only reason to get it done, so it's certainly not something you need to worry about. There are figures for very similar cars which would give you a good idea of where you are?

True, thanks guys. the main reason for sticking it on a rolling road is so that I can get more power out of it which will make it more fun :)

No the main reason foe sticking it on the rolling road is to make sure the fuelling is correct and it doesn't bang :wink:

...and if it ain’t on the cusp of going bang, you can throw more boost at it until it is... (right ;))
