Thanks for the compliments. I can't wait to drive it.

The red pullies are the "QED" brand, they are adjustable and half moon type. I bought them from Richard Appleyard in the UK a couple of years ago. they come in the red colour.

The 2.2L stroker engine is build with good driveability, liability and a fat torque curve throughout the rev range in mind rather than just top-end speed. It is expected to have around 210BHP with 190 lbs/ft torque, but the dyno test should give exact figures. (it has a esprit steel flywheel (much lighter) fitted and a 9.5" toyota clutch, and will be mated to a W58 5sp gbox)

The Lotus cam carriers are the HC type seen on later lotus engines. They are a better design and don't leak oil, although the original cam carriers won't leak oil either if installed correctly.

By the way credits for building my engine go out to Garry Kemps. i find myself not capable and/or technical enough to do it myself. I did do the rebuild of the front/rear suspension, subframe and brakes. Pictures of that will follow soon.
