He was one of the original members. He did a piece years ago for a magazine  .... I have a copy of it somewhere.

I know someone who had a "spare" LC engine until a few short years ago, and he sold it stupidly cheap to get it out of the way :(.  I think he still has a brand new crankshaft for one.

That's strange.  Do not know in my ignorance if it has got anything to do with a LC engine, but:

In the latest Autobahnstormers mag there is an advert for a LS2, 6 litre V8 engine.  Came out of a Monero shortly after being fitted in it, that was then written off!

Price,£5,000 O.V.N. :o :o :o

For anyone interested there are contact numbers. ;)

you can fit a V8 in carltons and sennys ,people have many times  :)
and as Omega is a similar size and layout, you can fit a V8 in an omega too
there was one at the Brackley meet with an LS1 in  8)

But how could you ever work on the engine after doing that? :o :o :o

It is bad enough with a V6!

I have a photo of a prototype Omega V8 that they almost introduced, but what a squeeze!! :o :o :D ;)
