    I know right, sick or scrolling!


    BUT... Damn that's a good looking z6. So clean fresh and stunning!


    I've done a similar engine build in the past but not quite as detailed to paint the pulleys etc. I've actually still got the blue blox cam gear off it in the garage lol.

    What's worse is when you're on your phone or iPad and you scroll down and it goes back to the start while it's loading haha

    Exactly what I just suffered. 1st world problems.

    The engine refurb is looking really stunning and as I wasn't so sure on the red pulley - when I saw it matching with the engine cam cover it is safe to say I was overwhelmed with feeling of satisfaction! :Grin:


    Keep up the good work mate!

    cheers mate! 


    been watching your videos, very useful information on the turbo oil feed lines. Subscribed! :Smile:  

    Thanks dude! 


    im not really sure at this stage


    I am trying to figure out which turbo is best suited for my goal of 225hp. im reading that these are the popular ones t25/T3/TD04/TD05. But can anyone suggest a decent turbo to work around? as im a bit out of my depth here haha  

    Cheers man. tell me about it! haha

    Thank you sir! I too was unsure about the red pulley. but it slowly all came together :Smile:  

    Thanks buddy alot of time spent on it really happy with it so far. afraid to say theres gunna be alot more scrolling to come haha

    As long as you on that stage i would say - get D13B2 gearbox for it and light fly wheel!!


    Great job with the engine refreshing!

    I've just sorted out an oil leak on mine :Frown: Rear Main Seal blew because I put too much oil in it. So keep an eye out on your fluids and stuff

    Cheers buddy! 


    Thanks for the heads up! How much oil would you recommend? Any other problems I should look out for?
