Hi Paul , you are most welcome. Please let me know once you have done the trip how it compared to the leg done by The 999 Challenge.

Is that the rebadged VW V8 unit? Nice engine, very sporty I believe. Better yet, Cummins haven't been playing with it...

No no it is the 4.2 but now Cummins are out of the picture and have nothing to do with that range
