Yep, and a drain-pipe sized exhaust mounted with super-heavy-duty springs.  That way when you're parked outside Spinner's house it will send him into orbit when he jumps on it.  :P

Well i got the K24 rebuilt with new seals and bearings and all bead blasted etc ;D It looks and feels like new now spins very smooth and has absolutely no movement!
 I will put the engine up on the engine stand tomorow and start ripping it down to see what sort of shape its in ;) Im pretty much just thinking valve guide seals a reface and new gaskets all round with all new seals and everything cleaned and checked. It went well and Ive got little money. I have a head gasket already so i only really need to buy the valves seals and the shop will just have some i recon.
 
 I cant wait, a K24 make such a good car out of a 200. with the K26 they are annoying to drive.
 I might try and fit the head lining in properly as well and sort thee sun roof as I have new slide thingys for it that arn't broken like most.
 Theres not many 200tqs out there any more and I do get quite fond of it. Wish i could park it off the st :P

Is your old 200 K-Jet Jeremy, i suppose changing the turbo isnt such a problem if it ism as the flap just rises more and gives more fuel, and the retard on boost just happens,

You will have 2 Magic engines soon ;D

Hey Jem, what are you doing with your old k26?  I think I might need a spare...

All the hose mods will be easy enough.
 I am missing two of the clamp things from around the k24s cold side that hold it together. I can make some up from other ones he has tho cut and weld them to right shape if hemihead hasn't got them.
 Cost $500 to rebuild the turbo :P Which is cheap. New genuine kit plus shaft balanced and 4 hours to do the work including bead blasting it all up like new. A new K24 from Germany is over $4000 his cost.
 It feels absolutely mint now no shaft movement at all, it will just hum.
 Its something I always wanted to do but never thought I would ever find a K24.

Looks nice Jem - $500 for a turbo recon is great value.

 The autos go well in the 100s and 200s you just stomp them and they lift up and take off! the 100 you drove will be a K26 tho nutter and you just cant believe how much better a K24 is. They feel like a reallly quick car with one. I had a mate help me move Rex old Avant with a k24 and he just thought it was crazy to have a car that had so much urge. Lagbegone!
