Or a DTM 2.5 - they were producing around 400bhp, but seem to be rare as rocking horse shit.  I seem to recall one company bought them all up and stripped most of them for parts for the hill climb lot?

 Found one ;D

When buying adblue, take a empty 10-20L drum to garage and use the adblue pump that the trucks use,, it's cheaper than pre-packaged 10L drums.

Use either a 3.0L or 3.2 doesn't make much difference, run the 2.5 wiring and ECU, and fit whichever sensors fit that loom,.
If you can find an MSD Super-touring inlet plenum+ manifold with Throttle body all is well, they were flowed and larger, you could also fit x4 G-cams. I think the MSD cars had different exhaust manifolds too, I can't remember.

I've bought 20l of this oil for the Omegas from Smith & Allan and it seems fine. Difficult to say anything other than that - the engines run sweetly on it, no mayo in the filler neck, and they've ve not gone bang....
It is the correct API and ACEA rating for the Omega too.
I did look at Mannoil too, but I wasnt convinced,  and I steered towards the Smith & Allan from past experience of their oils.
I've have also used their ATF and EP90 gear oil in my Triumphs and it has been absolutely fine. I would not hesitate to buy more when the time comes.
Their prices seem pretty good too with very quick delivery.

I've used smith+Allen for there dexos2, use it in everything.

Yeh i'm watching that one while I wait to see if Insurance will pay for the fitting.  :y

Was wondering if the windscreen fitters over the road from Serek would remove the remnants of the old one and fit this one....

 They would for a fee, you'd have to ask before you went, would be easier if you removed old one and cleaned it all up

2hrs,, from LBA, to Scarborough,  Sounds like your the one dawdling along. :o

Some dealership used outside fitters to install GM phone kits,, or Phone kits of choice, aerial were fitted either front or rear,,

Service vehicles had aerials fitted wherever the force or service requirements demand, also depending on equipment fitted,  Covert had aerials+ amplifier fitted in boots, even on rear parcel shelfs. 

Saw some interesting communication equipment fitted in cars for HMG, and aerial in funny places..
