I have booked the car in with a reputable P-Car garage that race preps 930's on Thursday. It is 600mi from home but probably the only way I'll get to the bottom of this.

To answer a few of your questions...

I haven't checked the pulley other than to simply install the new one with the toothed wheel. I did do a TDC check when I installed it.

The exhaust system is almost straight out from the turbo, no Cat.

They are stock Cams, they will be re-checked in Thursday. If they are out I will put in SC cams when they adjust them.

No they are standard intake manifold gaskets... I didn't know there were special heat resistant gaskets available. If anyone has a source let me know.

I am still hopefull its a timing issue too, either cam or ignition .

About flying Dean over.. If I read this right, because my car is underpowered I should sponsor Dean to come over and rate our Aussie chicks. Sounds like the beginnings of a tradition. Hang on here's another idea why don't I just part the car out and send a piece to each pelican member for Xmas.
