Looks like a very well thought out and well built car.
Is that a Garrett turbo? I wonder if it has something to do with the over oiling issues sometimes encountered with fitting one of these? I know that an oil restrictor of some sort is often used, maybe on a track car such as this, that additional line running to the chain cover is good insurance?
