    Looking at all the room for activities in your engine bay, and the fact that there isn't an RB26 in there, it should take all of half a carton to complete.

    Picked up the pipes from Competition Coatings this morning. I pretty much have all the bits to put it back together now. But cam belt has to come off again, I went with the wider 1" belt and the alloy auxiliary wheel doesn't have a flange on the back of it so allows too much belt walk. And I've also noticed that the Lancia Beta head has some casting differences on the front where block meets head, so the belt is getting a little too cosy for comfort.

    That's the real high temp stuff, also included the secondaries, will post a pic of those later. All up was $247.50.

    Unfortunately my inlaws finally decided on my FIL's 70th to be the weekend before your 40th. I really needed that weekend to get the 124 done as I have another 40th this weekend.

    Shit that's actually much cheaper than I thought! I don't want mine shiny, black and better heat management is what I am after!

    Thinner cam belt is on so no more clearance concerns, flywheel on with ARP bolts, clutch on, dizzy stud cut down, dizzy on, carbs set up with new soft mounts and fucking around with stud lengths. Throttle spring bracket made up, carbs on. Just need to make up a blanking plate for an EGR port and water gallery and then itís ready to go in the hole.
