I bought this car about 10 years agohttp://www.viczcar.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=13383.0;attach=38098;image

It has an L28 with very early motec on it.  I started the car 2 days ago for the first time in 8+ years and I had fogotten how good it sounds.
Next step is to get a tailshaft made or found and check the tune.  Hopefully club rego some time in 2015 and catch up with some of you on a cruise or two!  Ill put up any pics, vids or progress that may be of interest.

Cheers Owen,  I'm glad I kept it now.  Here is a vid from a couple of days ago when I started it after those 8 years of resting quietly.

Finally had a tail shaft made.  Just ran it up on the dyno as it was.  Needs work,  but its a good feeling to have it driving again.

Just a short youtube clip.

Here is a printout of the Z output.  It still needs to be tuned as you can see from the lambda trace!

That's got a pretty stout engine in it, what's been done to it?

I bought the car as is, 10 years ago.  All I do know is that it has 50mm throttle bodies and early 2 Group Motec.  When I changed the gearbox I saw that it also has an ally flywheel and Sachs clutch.  It also has an external feed to the side of the oil pump and a big Harmonic balancer.    Internally,  I don't have a clue.    The head will have to come off soon to replace the gasket as it has a slight water weep out the side.  I'll know a bit more then.
