    Well done Gaz, good for you mate.

    do 50 miles tops Gaz on the first oil, then drop the oil. then do another 200ish on mineral again, then change it for fully synthetic.

    With all those mods, and no map, I'd leave the N75 unplugged until you can have it mapped properly mate :)

    Also, take it somewhere proper to be mapped, which means not somewhere close to you.......... :no:

    Good man, I used comma 20-50 mineral for running in from 50-250, then switched to 5-40 fully synth and havn't looked back :)

    I'm sure Niki will do a fantastic job on it mate.

    I know how you feel Bill, been up and de glazed his block, built the head inc port and polish job etc and had some parts laying around for his build. lol

    I too have volumes of " how do you do this "" calls ( sorry gaz couldn't answer them all )

    Also glad its working and how is the clutch and brakes now?

    Still need to take you for a spin in mine to show you what its like to have 200 bhp more

    short bursts to 4000 loaded, then allow it to coast down in gear then build up the revs 500rpm at a time, give it some work to do and importantly let it coast and cool down between....
