    TK, did you ever get the springs tightened up and a re-tune for 8KRPM+?

    With a 1/2 grout fill you can go down to around 3mm wall thickness on the bores with no problem, even 2.5mm in small sections is ok - better than sleeving.
    Sorry but TK even if using JB weld? some cunt in the alfabb forums went on the cheap instead of using monosleeve setup that costs the earth. Using stock sleeves these alfa lumps usually have severe wobblyness but he seems to have solved it using Jb weld on base of sleeves, between sleeves to keep them together and instead of grout. Makes around 400hp with boost.

    this made be chortle.

    Some things you can learn, some you can't - I can't draw - not for shit, i could read books, i could practice, i could spend thousands of hours on it - and I would be good, but I'd never be great, never at any kind of artist level - i would probably struggle to attain a level of competency that some have in high school - but I can understand computers - always have been able to - I can 100% understand how an ecu senses and calculates crank position and how it triggers the spark to fire - but fucking points - what the fuck is going on there...
