I junked the mechanical pump idea and fitted a T coupler between the hose from the filter, return and hose to the carbs. I'm using a ring on the return hose to adjust the pressure. I know it's a crap solution but it works for now and i can do my testing.
Is this pressure regulator ok? Or should I go for something better?

I took the car out for a spin yesterday, and although i didn't take the time to adjust ignition timing or the carbs it ran really good with really good power from 3k rpm up. I heard a local garage installed the first RR in our city while I was in the UK and I hope the have someone qualified to properly set my car up.

The engine and cooling hoses were really hot after the first run, but I didn't get a reading higher than 80 deg C on the dial so I guess that's fine.

I'm pretty ok with how things are at the moment. Will be getting an oil cooler, a baffled sump and a Megajolt system by spring and then it's fun time.

The one you show is a Fuel injection one .

The FSE is a very good carb regulator imo.

Tinkered a bit more with the engine today and did a few test runs. It packs quite a punch at 3k 3.5k rpm and then keeps going. One of the drive shafts went kaput though, started rattling like hell. I have a spare but I'll be taking a break until after Christmas when I'll also be installing a Megajolt kit from a friend :) .

Thanks for all the help guys, merry Christmas and a very happy new year!
