It lives! It breathes!

Now things are really starting to happen (and not before time, you might say).

Lerric (?sp) is the latest addition to Saluki Motorsport, and has taken The Beast under his wing. The engine is back in, but only after some elegant welding by Robbie to repair one exhaust manifold which was damaged by touching the engine mounting, which in turn was knackered (probably) by the rubbery bit getting too hot from the manifold. If that makes sense.

Anyway the mounting is now replaced, the manifolds are re-lagged and the engine has been fired up. So all we need now is for Mark Adams to come and breathe on it.

And guess what? He turned up yesterday! Perfect timing, although unfortunately the UAE's entire stock of LR Defenders is also in the queue for his attention, these being Mark's bread and butter. But when he's ready for the main course, we'll be heading off to 1000 Dunes Garage to use their dyno, so that Mark can sort out the errant mapping.

Stay tuned (no pun intended) for the next thrilling instalment!
