Better get your finger out then :)

You have 4-6 weeks ????

I'm also inviting folk from the MG Owners forum as well.

PLEASE NOTE CHAPS:

You dont have to bring your V8 if it isnt ready. Just bring the daily hack to stick on the rollers???

As long as I get a bunch of like minded petrol heads together for a natter and a meet up I'm happy. As long as there will be at least 10 cars on the dyno thats all I need to get the cheap deal. We can go up to 20-30 cars if required.

Regards
Perry

Where and how much? My SD1 EFI is going very well at the moment - and it would be nice to know if it actually meets the claimed output. :D

Hello chaps!

I'm going to provisionally say Saturday 13th October. I'll ask Martin to pencil the day in for us.

I need at least 5 cars from here if possible.

13th october now booked :)

I've got 3-4 MG's so far.
My Sons Festa ST.
Hopefully the Chip fat Skoda Diesel.
And almost certainly the KiwiCar Slingshot 8)

I'll be with Mike on Sunday to attempt the first fire up of the engine :)

I've got a nice mix of cars so far:

Pel: MGBGTV8
Alan W: MGBGT Costello
Stu: Midget
Jason.S: Fiesta ST
Mike Oates: Methanol Slingshot.
Jason.W: Nissan or Mazda??
Tricky: MG ZTT Diesel
John watson: 64 MGB or TF

So 2 from here will make the minimum 10 we need.
But 12-15 cars total would be perfect ;)

We can go up to 25 cars but that gives us less time for tinkering and more runs on the dyno.
