This silicon dioxide is it like the brown slag you sometimes see on MIG or TIG welds?

Wonder if my V8 110 would have any problems, best fit the straight through exhaust sooner rather than later. Also planning a few other minor upgrades to take it up to about 250hp clearly with monster trailer pulling torque potential.

IBWET,

I bow to your knowledge in this subject. I was just trying to show the type of car it is not the exact model.

I could never afford to run something like that myself. I always looked on with envy at the rich people that could afford a car like that.

You didn't have to be that rich-I had an ex-police V8 SD1 when I was 18. Great fun-and I was a completely irresponsible idiot with it.

I know where there's 2 or 3 P5's laid up in a barn near here-old F plate, 2600 engines afaik. Doubt they're much good anymore.

NOS I think you must mean P4, P5s were all V8 weren't they?

I have always really liked the P5B Coupe and if I ever find a goodun Id buy it thing is they rotted like hell so there are not that many left.
