Yeah wow, that's quite a transformation. Looking great!
That’s a very healthy looking transmutation, for sure!...
You can still post pics here, once you’ve hosted them:
How much was this dreamboat from fleabay, if you don’t mind me asking?...
it was £1000 on eBay and spent £700 on all parts inc exhaust and a new set of tyers
That’s a bargain, it looks great. Most people are scared to take the gamble and get their hands dirty. It’s the best way to learn if you’ve got no one to teach you though. Even if you had to rebuild the engine it came in at a good price...
does a Y-1 barrel have better performance than a Y-2 Barrel with a Y-1 head ?

@kevb1967 I've heard that the y1 is the highest compression head but I'm not sure on that I tried researching but didn't find anything
