Not sure we will have time, also its a holiday weekend so that is going to interfere as well.
Decided to remove the S/c belt for the drive down just for Sh!£ and giggles. Currently averaging 26imp MPG not a fan of the performance tho :frowning:
Going to reinstall before the run down to Invercargill tomorrow.

Reminds me of when I disconnected one bank of a V12 E from the throttle capstan and gave a friend his first V12 drive. His only comment as we drove the suburbs was how smooth it was. When we got out of town I asked him to pull over and I reconnected the six idling cylinders…
