    Ahh cool. Economists are predicting the dollar will continue to drop and be even lower at the end of the year.

    The bubble wont burst - the economy will just continue to slow. Its not like how the GFC effected the US housing market in 2008.

    Quick Questions

    Graham, that is wrong. The incorrect coolant damages the aluminium parts it comes in contact with. Always use the blue bmw stuff.

    Nice work. Is it just the photo, or does the old engine oil look dodgy?

    I was wondering the same thing.
  6. All you have to do is video a dyno run and just pan over to show the readout on the dyno screen. Make sure you show air fuel ratios as well. Its so simple to do that you have to question why you haven't done it yet.

    Great to see this project up and going again.
  8. To market it you are going to need to have a dyno pull video with the resulting graphs in one constant shot to prove its the same car. You will also need to include in the same shot the air/fuel ratio graphs and torque graphs, and detail what ecu has been used and what tuning the ecu needed.

    Yup. Protectionism is a very dangerous thing, and always hurts the people it is meant to help. America is in for a world of hurt economically if Trump gets a second term. Thank goodness in NZ Labour flip-flopped on stopping the tppa trade deal, and is also progressing trade talks in Europe and the UK. Unfortunately we are just an acorn on the ocean though.

    Deja Vu - NZ Health System

    A common myth, but here are the facts; Between 2008 and Budget 2017, the health budget increased by $4.85 billion a year from $11.92 billion to $16.77 billion – a 40.7% increase. Also front line staff over the same time frame was increased by a large margin; Population growth 8% 38% more doctors 25% more nurses 45% more senior doctors 45% more senior nurses https://www.health.govt.nz/publication/health-workforce-new-zealand-annual-report-minister-health-1-july-2015-30-june-2016

    And with the US dollar going up in the short term on the back of taxcuts its not a good time to buy from there either. Just wait till the protectionist policies flow through in the states, and their dollar will drop badly - thats still a couple years away though. And by then the 'amazon tax' will have kicked in here in NZ, so its not going to get better any time soon.

    Buy from Europe instead. Sadly the NZ dollar has dropped since the election, so will be somewhat of a factor no matter where you buy offshore.

    Nice dyno. Do you have a more recent dyno with the upstream mods you mentioned?
