[QUOTE=madmax678;29823583]Just bought this today for £1,100, and yes, this is the only picture so far... I present my 1982 Land Rover Series 3 88... [IMG]http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa216/madmax678/6691124b.jpg?t=1305405775[/IMG] Most of it is surface rust and the guy is going to M.o.T it for me (Replacing all the lights,replacing a side glass panel driver side, replacing offside fender and giving me some off-road tires and rims :D) For the guys that don't know what a M.o.T is outside of the UK, its basically a test they do each year to make sure its road worthy... Hopefully this is going to be my project for the next few years or so, i may do a thread on it if i think its worthy enough (doing the restoration that is...) I thought i would put this in the "Cool cars" thread to be "funny"[/QUOTE] Got some more pictures of it when i went around on Saturday, the guy has done nothing to it, im starting to get annoyed... [IMG]http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa216/madmax678/7d791151.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa216/madmax678/661641c7.jpg[/IMG] Yeah, i know, it looks like shit, but once im done with it, its going to look fantastic...

[QUOTE=lemon_lover;30111216]replacement for displacement = 2JZ-GTE let me know when you get 500hp/liter out of a streetable v8[/QUOTE] Except boost has a limit and at that point you need a bigger engine hence the saying. Besides, there is a lot more to it then peak numbers, I have the most power etcetera...
[QUOTE=Diagger;30160236]Except boost has a limit and at that point you need a better fuel hence the saying. [/QUOTE] fixed
[QUOTE=edberg;30160463]fixed[/QUOTE] Missed the point about it being street able and not running 40psi and blowing up after driving through your neighborhood. Besides there is a limit on the fuel available and even the amount of stress your block can take.
bigger engine, lol. There are guys making 800+ horsepower out of D16Z6's (1.6 liters of Honda beef) and still have lots of room to go on boost. I think the best I've seen is a sleeved D16Z6, stock bore and stroke, with rods, pistons, milled head, port and polish, Bisi level X cam, some huge injectors, in the 800cc range, titanium valves and bisi springs, I forget what turbo he was running but it was pushing out 42PSI, dyno'd out at 814~ horsepower. Let me see if I can dig up one of his earlier dyno vids, he's got a few of him building this car up and it just got progressively better.

The Civic I am talking about with the turbo Z6 at 42PSI with 800+ hp is a street driven car. Just like Bisi's Z6 Civic Wagon pushing a little over 700hp, it's his street car. *shrug* You can always do more boost. You just have to prepare your [del]anus[/del] block for it, and use a good gasket/stud combo.

I know what you're saying that you CAN make a killer small engine with just boost but 42PSI on a 6.0L is that much more (not that you would even have traction with just the 1.6), but I'm not saying you go all N/A and roll around with a 10.0L or something just that for example perhaps a slightly bigger engine than on that civic with less boost might have cost less overall, and been more reliable (maybe I don't know of anyone with either around here... until Friday). A nice push rod engine wouldn't be too much of a stretch in weight or dimensions either. I'm off topic enough as it is now. All I was trying to say is that 'no replacement for displacement' still has meaning at the limit of boost not that boost isn't one of the best cost/HP ways to improve performance.
only solution is turbodiesel
Displacement is always better, yeah. But having the displacement with the lighter weight of smaller displacement and the same power is going to be a tank. smaller displacement forced induction will always outperform larger displacement forced induction when both are used in a car of the right weight and the right amount of grip. It's all a power-to-weight thing. Having a bigger engine is like a dick swinging contest, you guys might have the biggest but in the end that is still one gay ass contest. I'll keep it in my pants. [editline]31st May 2011[/editline] Also turbo diesel is the shit, it's too bad they don't rev as high as petrol engines. If they did I would have switched to tractor gas years ago and never looked back. Until then, I still love my exploding dinosaur juice. Have fun with your 4000 RPMs, I'll just chill up here at 8-9k.

Eventually i've got to get the grinder out and get rid of some surface rust on the cab though...

Yeah i'm not worried about doors. Once i find a fucking job, the first paycheck is devoted to getting brand new ones.

BMW did Rhinoplasty on that car and gave it smaller nostrils.
My camera broke but this is pretty much the same except thing as my car except I have the chrome pontiac rims that came with it.
