Oh no, I need it to be like clock work as it's my daily drive.

I am hoping if anyone can make it reliable...it's Patrick.

Pat will see you ok.
Keep the power at sensible levels all will be good.
My issues were caused by a crap install and secondhand components.
Got it sorted and then sold it.
Daily drive in a MK3 turbo so what is your weekend toy?

Sorry Tony. Wife's birthday is going to trump the dawn run. I'm going to have to cancel for the 18th.

I am definitely going to make one of these runs! Hopefully it will be in the turbo roaster as the car is at Patrick's now to start the conversion.

Enjoy the 18th

:sad: What is the world coming to?

You should have told her you had a surprise present* and brought her with you. ;)

* Getting out of bed at 5am might have been just that. :laughing

The next one won't be until May so that should give you enough time.

As soon as I know for sure I will let you know.

So is my car :crybaby:
Tried to fit a new cam cover gasket today, but had the wrong one :facepalm: put it back together with a bit of instant gasket, and after wasting a few hours I could have spent on the brakes it now leaks far worse than before :w_tf: So for the first time ever I think I'm going to be out :crybaby:

Hmmm. Found this.

The Dirty Harry question. :)

Last year's Highland Drive.

The year before we drove through a whiteout at The Lecht pass.
A bit of snow is not a big deal AFAIAC. YMMV.

That's my old turbo and Simon's V6 outside the Italian on the last day of HD2017.

DHL have managed to deliver what was needed all now depends on whether
Pat has time to sort it and Gary has time to map it.

I reckon it's a lot of fuss for maybe a tiny bit of snow
