The Mad Finnegan V6 Build 6 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 15
Right tell me I've gone mad but I was thinking about the rebuild I was doing at thought to myself how boring a turbo to N/A build would be. soooo I went and bought myself a dirty big 3vz-fe V6 engine. so this will be more exciting few pics will be up Saturday powerrrrrrrr

Kc'd for luck! I'm sure there will be days this build will be a pain in arse and you'll want to get the gallon of petrol and box matches and burn it to the ground but stick with it! Go in with eyes wide open and know there will be plenty of problems but it'll make it so much sweeter in the end knowing you've built something yourself. Best of luck mate

Had this feeling during the week, stripped the fairings and a few other bits from the bike in one evening and was delighted with my progress.
Went inside for a drink and when I came back out to the bits I had made of it I thought "Holy s**t what have I done and why"

@shanec we've all been there lad! Most of my projects end up with me in the pub feeling sorry for myself until I find the will to get stuck into them again, the fella who runs the local loves hearing that I'm starting a new project!

Hahahahaha be stuff bait with a hammer everywere and endless shouting will not be civil at all. Going to start with rebuilding the engine but won't start it untill I have my shed built because working out in the rain will only make me very cross have a mechanic on standby for when everything goes wrong so its all good. I'll be keeping you's posted as I go along. Be warned this build will take awhile. If any of yous are about monaghan some day give me a text an if I'm about ya can come up and have a nosey around my machinary and a look at the project. Can't wait to start

Been into cars since I was about 6 so through reading countless engine building books,tuning mags etc and then spending hours and hours on the laptop learning new things about cars engines and all the after market parts and brand names. And then learned a lot from building my own mr2 up to what it is now and breaking other ones. So between all thatya can pick up a few skills :L. Going to be taking a full mechanic course learning all there is to know then I'll go for the diagnostics end of it and plugging the car into a laptop and setting the correct air/fuel mixture, remapping and all that crack :L so there ya go

You can get a loom from Paul Woods I think he will do them, not sure it that is part exchange for one from a car or not.

Good luck with it.
