Apparently this is my Dkubus FrankenCIS WUR ready for shipping. My throttle bodies will be finished by end of next week as well. I have been told.

Very nice indeed...

I reckon I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get one of these Dkubus FrankenCIS setups to cure my 6.9's injection woes once and for all.

They turned out nice Geoff
How is the engine coming along
By the way when i spoke to someone at Southside Engines Builders a couple of years ago (can't remember his name) he mentioned to me that the can handle the MB Alusil alloy blocks for reconditioning the bores with the required machining/etching process with the special pads and paste to re-etch the cylinder walls after boring.
When you are next there speaking to them about you engine -can you please ask / re-confirm that they can still handle the Alusil M117 alloy blocks for boring/re-etching the silicon crystal impregnated cylinder walls after they are bored out
I still want to take a block to them for boring out to either 98mm or 100mm as a project engine with custom lightweight forged pistons to match

Ok will do but Southside do machining for other engine shops in Perth so I would think that would still be the case.

Slight issue with fitting billet throttle body is Australian has blade fitting on end of shaft Euro has a round fitment . So will send 1 throttle body back to be fixed . Measurements taken and email sent to Dave in Melbourne. Also car has been dropped of at Rowe and Sons for paint job. Parts have been ordered from Mb Spares more to follow as its a back to metal paint job.
