    I turned over the engine for the first time since mid October. Reached in through the window and gave it a 2 or 3 second spin for oil pressure. Then reached in, turned it over and 3 seconds later it started right up. I never touched the throttle. It purred like a kitten. I ran it for 30 minutes to give the battery a good charge.
    Iím also testing a Rennshift. I have it adjusted I think. Too much snow on the roads to see how it feels.
    I think this time of year Iíll call the shop the ice box. See that tiny heater up in the top left corner? Thatís it for a 20X40 by 15 feet tall shop. Itís good for heating the top two or 3 feet in that corner. So I just turn it off and squeeze up against an area heater. Itís good for 12 to 18 inches. The shop this time of year is in the 40ís.

    Center brake lights. After these pictures I turned the LED light bar in the lights horizontal.

    Continue to enjoy this thread. I did check out your website but didn’t see this. Do you have a video of your 2CAM4 running so that I can hear what it sounds like?

    Peter,
    I don't have a current video of the engine running. I'll work on it this spring.
    Here is a short one before the engine was installed in the car. I'm running a different exhaust now.

    Would love to hear it with a sport muffler. Neat!

    I removed the clients silver JWest shifter for one I ordered. Black base and knob and polished shifter. With a stromski coupler it is a nice package.

    The DP 902#10 912 POLO getting the finishing touches at Tuthill in the UK for Matt Sanchez.
    He sent a 10 second video of the startup but I couldn't download as the file was too big.
