After a couple of minutes I was greeted by literally clouds of smoke, billowing out of the exhaust.
Then I remembered new fuel tanks are coated with a wax inside and I had not removed the protective coating internally.
I drained and refilled the tank, no difference.
The engine oil was clear, the coolant clear and up to the level in the expansion tank.
Crack in the head? Crack in a liner? What could it be?
Then I noticed a small pool of black oil under the car. The torch showed it was coming from an exhaust join on the RHS. Oil from the exhaust!
The I remembered, that exhaust was newly fitted to a track car that blew up its engine. It has been in my store for 2 years.
The exhaust was full of oil.
Tomorrow I aim to drop the front ride height by 2 inches.
No, I will just reset the torsion bars.
I must have got it wrong on the first place.
It is so high at the front that my guess one whole click on the rear ear will bring it down where I would like it.
So I will not have to tap the torsion bar forward. Thats the plan.
So it does. Low is good for looks and track handling, less so for traffic calming devices of the kind I encounter when I take my (slightly low) E for a bimble. Originally my E rode too high. Massive understeer. Wouldn’t recommend it.

It’s not intuitive.
