Planning a get-together, or want to tell us about a track day ?

Rob,

Of the 3 cars which failed I am yet to hear from one owner, the other and Evosal have confirmed their engines are not with King K, and TBH I fully expect that the one remaining person will sit in the same camp (especially regarding Bens comments ), therefore I don't believe King K has any of the engines.
Ah bugger - you have given the game away.

I have been making a tidy sum for some time now buying up buzzed engines from the ricer boys and selling them to Erland as BTCC/LoT/Scuffham failures.

Of course locating blown k series from the local scrappy and selling them to Erland as DVA examples was much easier.

Sorry to pee on your bonfires chaps but the engine in question is from my car
Mark must be mistaken as i have not been asked if Simon has mine.
I swapped it for a 2.3L all singing and dancing S/C k, 329.9bhp

Chris, I asked the other 2, it was assumed from Pesky's post you were stripping your own engine so it wasn't yours.

I have stripped it but then sent the remains to Simon.
Sorry for any confusion

Yep - confused me (you bugger! ), but at least we now know the engine in question. Chris, did you tell Simon that 5 SC Hondas let go at Spa?

Aye, common knowledge, & no news blackout either as far as I am aware. Everyone's just curious why Simon quoted 5sc Hondas, when only 3 have been identified. So did you tell him 5, or was it someone else who did?

All in the interest of the truth & honesty of course.

I think you were all trying to catch Simon out ... out of interest can I ask why Simon wanted the engine ?

Well he wasn't at Spa, but a lot of hairy arsed, beer swilling petrolheads were - & they know what happened. Given Simon's record, is it unreasonable to ask him the basis upon which he posts his "facts"?

As to why he wanted the engine, he's the one who answer that. However, I am certainly interested to hear his views upon the cause of the failure, as long as they are factually accurate (as best as they can be after the event), & are without the type of derogatory remarks expressed in the past.
