Re: Knox Mountain 2019

Keith, thank you for taking the time to post pictures and write a story for those of us lurking on the realm. It's ALWAYS interesting, your drives, hiking, Knox, etc. The fellow with the BMW seems to be a somewhat recent contender though maybe longer than I think. Perhaps you've seen his car, if so ...

Re: Binky!

I have total respect for these guys, lots of engineering (and sometimes re-engineering) to achieve fitting all that hardware into such a small package. I myself am embarking on a similar build and I dread thinking about each and every little aspect needing engineering. The British dudes clearly disp...

Re: Rock Auto Shipping to Canada Cost?

Thanks guys, that’s settles my anxiety and I’ll proceed.

Is it obvious I don’t do much internet shopping?

Re: Doug's automotive

Mike, sorry for the left turn to your thread, I’ll keep it short. Keith, I bought two Engine Air turbo kits from P Pistner. The first one was well used and only included the carb box (painted red), exhaust manifold, and schwitzer turbocharger. Everything was beat but I got my feet wet and never turn...

Rock Auto Shipping to Canada Cost?

Folks, I’m about to make my first ever purchase from Rock Auto and I’m curious if there have been any surprises from shipping into Canada, like Rock using UPS where UPS then extorts a brokerage fee.

Any insight?

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Trevor, I heard about you thinning your herd. I agree that you selected the best person to be on the receiving end. Datsun enthusiast at heart, for what appears to be many years, or decades.

Re: Doug's automotive

Keith, do you have one of these? Original Engine Air turbo install manual. Not suggesting you need it Lol! I've kept this around for 37 years now. Came across it again just a week ago when my wife and I decided to start doing a purge of the basement. Typed on a typewriter, hand drawn images. http://...

Re: Doug's automotive

Keith, you mention impco valve... I tossed one out decades ago. A month ago I went to a car show and see an all original pinto, draw through turbo and an impco valve. Looked to have a modern t3 turbo (dynamic seal of course). Impco valve for boost control. Total flashback in time. http://forums.peli...

Re: Doug's automotive

Ditto on the above build thread Keith!

I didn’t know Brasso had a dealership in Vancouver, I always presumed he only had the dealership here in Calgary.

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Keith, some prior years coverage at another run off you also mention that Collin was running harder compound than his next closest competitor. At this level of competition I'm surprised you folks don't hide compound info from other competitors. Isnt there risk that Goodyear techs reveal to the other...

Well, it appears you guys might need $20 worth of wine tonight. Well done Collin, Andy, and all the support crew.

Thanks for the updates Keith.

My heart rate is still around 190. Sheesh.
