Profile Update - BsBB1


Stands for Ben's BB1 :D

Really thought I'd better type a profile out, for my own benefit as much as anyone else :old:
I've had Nigella (Mrs named her, as there's NG in the plate, but it suits - sexy and curvy with a bit of a fat @rse :D ) since April 2002 and loved it.
Thought I might change to an S2K as many do, but quite frankly I decided against it as I prefer the Lude. 8-)
Now done 173k and still pulling like a train. Well it made it to 176k before I decided to go for a new engine, spec below
I've had all recent work done by Richy at PAW, - the only person I trust to work on my car other than myself these days.

Right, specs:

UKDM, so BB1, VTEC.
Phantom Gray Pearl.
Usual specs, except for:

ENGINE
H22A8 Rebuilt by PAW
Head: Port blending/smoothing and skim.

Thanks guys.

I know what you mean Pushki, so few clean ones left these days, people will realise what they've thrown away when it's too late :(

Nitin - Its an uneven surface atually, making it look higher at the back.
I cant lower it any more anyway as I nearly leave the exhaust on speed humps as it is! :x

Oh and cheers for the rep Indigo :)
