    Volvo HGV mechanic by Trade.
    engineering, engine building. I built my first engine a rover 3.5 V8 at the age of 14!! which I still have now in my 1965 2a land rover.

    Around six years ago I was running a BLITZ K24 kit on my SR conversion @ 1.6 bar low and 1.8 high boost on a standard 4E-FTE but after 3 bottom end rebuilds that was the end of the turbo days for my SR (had no funds for forged bits!) But I still have the car!

    Vintage Toyota Steering Wheel

    I definitely could come up with something but I would need the wheel to work from.

    Rob H's TD05 16G 4EFE SR Inlet and 8 injectors!! 256.7hp@ Wheels

    Bit of an update! I eventually got round to having the bonnet and bumper repaired and painted after about 3 years we had to strip the bonnet right back as the last time it was painted it wasn’t even rubbed down first! I also repainted the intercooler and polished the headlights and the scoop got a fresh coat of lacquer too so they look better now

    New! CT9 external waste gate adapter

    Just done this for a member on here, a CT9 external waste gate adapter. I can make just about anything fit anything as long I have some measurements or drawing to work to. Pricing is per individual item/ job for things like this.

    Here’s some of the jobs I have done some Starlet related and others not, some cosmetic others functional most of the photos can be seen on my Facebook page, I do have a website too but that doesn’t get updated as much. https://www.facebook.com/rchengineering/ My catch tank for the turbo SR. Same agin strut brace for my SR! This is a edge protector I made for my garmin vivoactive it works really well but I’d already broken the screen before I made it. This is a gear knob I made for Matt of the forum, I made it shaped to his fingers too! This is a cigar stand I made for someone on Facebook. This is a TPS conversation I did for a Peugeot 205 race car. They needed a proper mount and drive as the drive it came with was only plastic and was flexing, the new mount also made it so the TPS could be adjusted for mapping. This is a Land Rover Discovery active stability valve block I refaced and tapped to take hydroulic pipe fitting instead of the silly push fit ones. Land Rover P38 Range Rover air bag pedistal candle stands, these were for me too!

    That’s not something I can really do as they would need heat treatment for hardening after or they would wear out in no time plus there is other options out there that work too, I could grind existing shims but the same again there’s already a good selection out there so it would hardly be worth it tbh.
