I vaguely remember you mentioning that this client wanted the black and white coatings on the engine.

Can you tell us all about the spec? Is it rebuilt or crate? What it was before you started on it and what it is now?

Where there any dyno figures before the work was done?

Any other intertesting information?

I'll release you all from your suspenders....

It's a 3 litre Renault Safrane engine going into an Alpine GTA Atmo whose engine blew. EFI setup like Richard's twin turbo but an otherwise bog standard Saf engine from our white one that rob killed. The car is white with a black interior so the colour scheme kind of made sense and nobody could think of ever having seen an enging done in art-nouveau style!

That exhaust, despite being only mild steel, is actually more expensive than our stainless system!

Why did he go for perishable mild-steel?

We did tell you not to use Sports mode.......

He "went" for mild steel because that's what you buy when you go to the Alpine specialists.

It's a shame that's not going in a DeLorean for a Demo car........

If someone wants to fit one in a DeLorean, I'm sure we can help, but not too many DeLorean engines get blown up. And performance seems to be of less interest and "originality" seems to be the watchword.

The original engine from this car was basically a B28E with triple webers. Dyno'd at 160 at the wheels and a stonking amount of torque. Went like stink and drank like a fish.....
