Casablanca is plagued with these. Of course the first one I found was in need of a tow itself.

Apparently they're a little insecure though.
I think his staff did that as a joke. Anyway we should grab a beer with him, he just did the VO Trophy this year and is a nice dude.

Another d-90 is joining the NBPT fold in the next few weeks, buddy bought another board member's rebuild and we are going to pick it up from LI soon.

Why I love living in the UK

Today in the carpark at work - two PUMA 110's. The one in front (2.4l) has been remapped and is getting 180bhp up from 140 factory, but the torque figures are over 450! The owner is in the process of having an uprated driveshaft made as his is now twisted from his heavy foot.

Regards,
Art Vigil

Wondering about the lifespan of his clutch/gearbox with all that torque

Sorry should have been more clear - it's getting 459nm (Newton metres) which is about 337 ft lb of torque. Still a hell of a lot. And yes, I'll be sure to ask him about the clutch.

Regards,

The getrag MT82 is also used in Ford Mustangs with V8's. I'm not sure if it's the exact same model, but even if it isn't perhaps one from a more powerful car could be made to fit?

This one is good for 350nm at 4000kg gross vehicle/trailer weight: http://www.getrag.com/media/products.../6MTI300~1.pdf

While this one is good for 500nm at 6500kg: http://www.getrag.com/media/products...TI500_MT82.pdf
