It helps to have a reasonably good engine to start with, for all it's spilt oil and coolant flanges that it came with it was in good nick. Not bad for an engine bought blind! :D

Definitely worth doing. Went up a small local hill that I used to struggle up in second in third, amazing. I gave the newer engine a good degrease as I hate working on a dirty engine with the chance of shyte dropping into something that I forgot to plug.
One wire is a spare that I used whilst trialling a timed solenoid operated cold start - it didn't work as well as I hoped it would so reverted to the cable method.

Must say when I did mine I found that without the original "snorkel" that lives in the corner post it was very noisy BUT I think this gives a bit of restriction to the airflow ? Probably better without it but noisier ? Perhaps you have the answer O B G with the K N set up.

I'll come up and try Bishop's Hill soon. Should be third gear but will try it in 5th and 4th first. :D

EGR exactly as the original on the engine as it came. I was in two minds as to whether to keep it or not as the inlet manifold was full of shyte, will see how it pans out - if it gets choked I will blank it off.
