Thank God for disc brakes :D Yes, Eddie the 109 has been rebuilt with a few minor tweaks... a new 4.6 Rover V8 with 3.9 injectors and 3.5 front cover & inlet hardware. Oh and a high-torque cam just to be on the safe side. Now running MS V3 and EDIS-8. The test drive was to Russia and back - not ...
