If those cars are no good to you guys (saw the shiny engine bays), then my car is going to look crap!

At the end of the day we would love to see any car wether between build or even on a trailers. Don't be discouraged from coming even if it is a rat car come anyway the bigger the better.
I think I should be able to make the february one.
Car is in no way a show quality car (I like to think of it as a 10' car, good from 10' away), but I'll polish it up anyway.
My crew is even bringing the apprentice's jet ski. Stuff it I'll even try bring the dog, at the end of the day it's a car show come show your face have fun and get along isn't that what its all about!
As long as a certain so and so does not try anything stupid there is bugger all to worry about, bar have fun and enjoy yourself!!!
Who knows what trophies may be awarded but I tell you what it won't be the guy flippin the bill....
Hope to see anyone with anything there lets make this show something to take note of in the future and get behind it...
Get the back out...Dr Datto

I also installed a new boost valve which is being controlled by my computer instead of the existing bleed valve. Few runs with the new setup and it was building/holding boost very steadily. It was a quick run and I got it home about 30 seconds after the last kickdown. I tell you all this because I open the bonnet and see this
The gasket was on it's way out as I had noticed a bit of weeping at the front of the engine for a while, but still annoying. I had planned on pulling the engine out and pulling it down for a look (Previous owner did the rebuild but I don't know the state of the engine). However I wasn't going to do that until I got my shed built (won't be until ~ April). So all that was to say I probably won't be making the February show. If I pull the engine down before Feb, I don't think I will be able to stop at a simple head gasket, I will end up getting the while I am at it fever.

Far better news than a head gasket if I'm right.

The boost did not go above 14 pound (which is what I had it tuned for and is much better controlled then the previous bleed valve, I have logging on the computer so can see how the boost reacted).
I took the oil dipstick out to see how much oil I had and to get a clearer photo.
Definitely leaking from head (although I hate to say it).

Audi, Volvo and Ford(Focus Turbo) have proved it works, It may not be the case with Nissan, yet, but persevere!
Sorry couldn't resist,
But, look at releiving the rocker cover air pressure build up, as the drainbacks to engine are pretty small, and the crankcase breather is also quite restricted, especially if it wasn't removed and cleaned thouroghly ( gauze pack) at last engine rebuild.
Worst case scenario is it could be head gasket, but I doubt this, as the main oil gallery feed from block to head is between No 3 and 4, this pic is showing weep around five!
I drill them out a little( oil restrictor plug at block deck surface) to give better oil delivery/volume to upper end, but, pay attention to oil return into block, and, oil pressure from pump.

Thats if you are keen to actually drive a car on the track legally and quickly, rather than showing a car statically.
check out events page on hrcc dot org dot au.

May just come along for a look-see rather than try to bring the car

Since a few of us are already heading to the classic Japanese I was thinking we should meet up for some beers around lunch time. So far Shaun says he's keen. Anyone else?
My number is 04!^ *!) ()^
