    With tank relocation and full tank of fuel should be very very close to 50/50 front to rear.
    All will have to wait until next yr tho due to house build. When I do start the 1st port of call will be carbon fibre fabrication, boot,bonnet, front guards, rear doors, underbody aero, tank n exhaust mods next then paint, interior is partly underway, I have race seats being upholstered now ,leather same colour as original ....hopefully early 2021 finish

    Yep your on the money Theo ... I decided 9yrs ago that it will never be sold . Instead of spending 60k or so changing over to a new car every 4 yrs, I'll spend 60k on this car every 4 yrs, if I'm lucky and live to the avg age I hv another 320k to go . Should be looking good, going fast and be super light by then, mayb wheelchair access to lol

    i havnt used it yet but i got a remote mount one and then just couldnt find room for it so i got the oil cooler adapter with the built in thermostat and lower mount style so it fits better all in one, they are ment to be good mine allow some flow at all times so u dont get oil temp shock and then full open at temp, they have rebuild kits to as they do like 10000 cycles life, im going to leave mine off until engine is ran in then fit it on with the good oil

    Thanx ... I was going to put the dry sump on but it will be better served on next car i have in mind. Before the car was taking time to get up to heat or when freeway cruising temps it go low. This will help bring them up quicker. I havnt seen any probs with them online , other than oil temps run 10degrees hotter on the track

    and I've recently found proof that the low oil sensor in our sump is also the oil temp sensor so the gauge is a true reading
