Option 1 was the best as 2 wheel drive wasn't really an option Laughing My neighbour machined the converter shaft

And a fine job he did

I bit the bullet and drilled the output shaft myself Shocked

Never having cut a thread before I was pleased with results Thumbs Up

The result is the output shaft should stay put now Laughing Sound video to follow once I work out how to do it Rolling Eyes

Cheers Co1 I understand the engine put's out around 290+ BHP but for me it's always been about the sound of a V8 Very Happy The top speed is not what I'm after just a bit more grunt and a sweet exhaust note. Job done Laughing Just got to come to grips with £2 a litre Rolling Eyes

Nice work, you must be chuffed. Don’t worry about the fuel, prices will come down again I’m sure… Whistle Instagram @richmond_custom
