    Build Your Own V8
    This was bought as a birthday present for a 14yearold grandson with a leaning towards engineering. It's been very well received. Too early to say more.

    We are sorry that it took us so long to reply to your technical query about building the engine. As soon as we received a response from our supplier, who then spoke to the designer, we passed this information on to you. I hope that you have now managed to complete the engine build. Kind regards, Daniel.    Qwerkity
