The rb5 got mapped today, didn't go great Sad engine has to come back out. I bought a pair of cylinder heads advertised as fully reconed, turns out they weren't. Valve stem oil seals need doin and a suspected broken piston ring as it's a little noisy Sad bob held back on the ignition and boost so more to come when it's sorted Smile still made 430 as it is so not all bad. Good for 480-490 next time Smile

Dont ever buy anything from Ebay that you are going to heavily rely on!!!

One positive for you fella is that when its fixed its going to be a fooking BEAST!
