Gents finally made it home ok , far too many people heading south ,I forgot it was the start of the easter weekend 🤔😁😎you know you have gone too far north when after an hour of driving your still 70 miles north of Birmingham . did check the car before leaving the North for stashed ferrets, Pigeons and whippets and who left a half eaten black pudding and tripe butty in my car.

Hartech is an interesting place its all about the cars there's no flashy sales area, its a good old fashioned engineering company full of guys who are passionate about the job.I had a tour round and very impressive what they do there.

Cars running great, Grant told me to run millers 5w40 for the next 2000 miles then switch back to millers 10w50 when I do the 2000 mile oil and filter change thats needed on the rebuilt engine.
Still running it in a bit, Grant told me to drive it how I normally drive it Surprised Hand Surprised Smile for the last bit of running in ,so I was careful to keep it under 115mph on the way home Grin Grin

Its funny as I had almost forgotten just what a grin driving a 911 is , the Bentley is nice and very fast in a civilised way, but it doesn't make you grin like driving a 911.

Right breakfast on Sunday with the local guys and then ready for Germany next weekend .

Stu, well I will be selling the fabspeed carbon induction Grin Grin as we now know 100% it puts out slightly less power than the stock airbox with bmc filters and theres not even a better low/mid range power curve thats worth sacrificing a couple of bhp at the top end.

What I will be doing next week is fitting the clear newer gen2 rear lights as I have those waiting in the garage and also fitting RSS semi solid engine mounts also waiting in the garage . Thumb Thumb

Hartech is a fantastic place. Non of this fur coat and no knickers nonsense. Just good old fashioned hard work, skill, knowledge and expertise pumping throughout the whole organisation..........plus bucket loads of excellent customer service.

Once you've been there and seen what these guys do, you totally get it when members state No Substitute!!

What a fantastic "Easter Present" Grin
