    There are some updates on their way soon.

    The Original B30 block and head did have more damage than initially thought so the Tuner sourced a replacement block and head.

    Since the car is in the UK it is much easyer to get the S50B32 parts.

    The B32 block is identical to the B30 block except the standard bore. B32 is 86.4 and B30 is 86.0mm We intend to hone the block and most likely it will be at 86.5mm after honing.

    The B32 head has larger exhaust valves and thinner valve stems.

    The combination will be

    B32 head with the B30GT cams and B30 single vanos
    B32 block using the B30 crank, B30 forged JAWS rods and forged B30 86.5mm pistons

    End result is a bit of a hybrid.. 3.0L S50B32 single vanos.

    Pistons have arrived. It's always fun to have new shiny stuff. Big thatnks to Erics Performance Parts on Ebay for their quick and effective service.


    CP packaging always impressing


    I will forward them to H T Howard and Co in the UK where the replacement block (B32 from B30) will be rebored to 86.5mm (0.1mm overbore). Then its off to Motorworx Marlow for the final assembly

    Please take the time if you can to go to the facebook link and hit the like button.. sounds like a cliche but I intend to "try" to use the facebook page to get sponsors on board (discounts and such).
    Awesome work and a stunning looking car...

    Marlow is just up the road from me (about 15 minutes!) so if you need progress pictures etc. I am happy to pop along for you

    Just out of interest, what did you do with the original seats you had in there - the carbon ones? I think they look REALLY nice...

    Have 'liked' the link on FB.

    Keep up the good work and posts!!!

    Hi, there will be someone working on the engine over the weekend, don't think the car is there but the engine is. Bring a camera if you should drive to the Garage.

    The seats in some of the pictures are a Recaro/Porsche GT3 replica seats, in Carbon fiber. I honestly did not like them too much, they didn not fit right and the padding was not first class. The Recaro Pole Position are so much better in most ways, except look (in my opinion). They are also FIA approved.

    Cool - if they are ok with me 'popping in' and if I get a chance, I am happy to do so....

    Wanna swap some photos for your 'old' seats
