No, I'm not that good as I do have to stop...but I can adjust and set the timing with my seat belt on.
Did this the 2nd time out as I forgot to tighten the dizzy down.

I have my teen up on the hoist right now, not a single leak anywhere. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

I was really surprised how easy the big six was to start. I had trepidation that I may have wired my twinplug dizzy wrong and I couldn't static set my timing with the MSD. I gave the key a quick turn to see if the starter worked and it fired! 2nd turn it started right up! A quick timing check and I was right into the break-in running.
So far the full balance /6 is super smooth, totally different animal from a T4.

While waiting on my alt to come back from the rebuilders I'll be chasing the dreaded spongy brake.

BUT that will give you a few months to sort out the minor issues, all in time for a Spring run! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Tires are 205/60-15, we'll see, I'm not a huge fan of GT flares, maybe pull the fenders for 225's.

I have my young lads 914 in the works and he often get's my cast offs, so I'll look at wheels/flares options when we get further into his car.

Great news. How loud is it in the drivers seat when the firewall is open like that? You can download an app to measure the volume.
