yes I have got a bit carried away, bonnet is up modifying the injection pump at the moment with a stiffer boost compensator spring and spacer plate, with the increased turbo psi the standard one is wound up so far its coil binding on boost compression. Anything in particular you wanted to see?

Setting the tappets while replacing injectors and timing belt, did IP timing as well

That is some extensive list you have created. About the only thing we can get here in the UK is the cup holder (though doesn't come with pen or torch slots) but has passed the 'European Norm' safety standards.
We know the 80s are big inside so snap away the interior; then we can steal your ideas and order stuff on fleabay.

nice, thanks. :)

playing/grinding with the pin is not very common in the UK for some reason, it's next on my list after I replace the old IC and install the GT30R turbo i've got in the garage :)

near, leek staffs.
Impressive rig. Are you happy with the cross country intercooler? Is it the ultimate version? Looking at the profile change on the plunger i understand its increasing fuel delivery? Make much difference?

kit came with the large scoop for better airflow, and a spal fan. Not sure if you can see in the pic but I added mesh at the front of the scoop to keep the locusts out, its unreal when you drive thru a swarm of them here, have to have shade cloth over the roo bar so they don't block the radiator.

as to the pin profile, well im tinkering with the boost compensator tuning this week. I have to screw in the A/F meter into a bung I welded into the exhaust, I don't leave it in all the time. And yes, the grind into the flat section is to add fuel there, if the side pin rides down onto the flat section it stops increasing fuel delivery.

I had the bilstein shocks, but found when I filled up with fuel it would wallow a bit. towing the boat was worse, but I don't live far from the boat ramp. Fitting the Koni 90 Raids transformed it into a stable ride, as you can see there is a massive size difference

really pleased how they handle dampening the weight

this is when I installed the MSA drop slide, because after putting in the drawers the lid of the engle fridge would hit the underside of the tailgate window when I slid out the top draw section to open it, made it a pain to get the drinks out. The MSA works a treat, and is really well built.
