    I am sure you probably know anyway Nige, but normally when it smokes when under load it is rings (push), and when it smokes on over-run its valves, guides, or guide seals (suck).............or all of them.

    I think its using unknown pistons/rings that hasn't helped and i maybe could of spent more time de-glazing the bores before fitting

    That said, never did i think it would go from a bit of blue smoke when giving it some to passing that much oil that it would barely run (even when mixed with V power ) and would lose so much oil out of the headers (and the Akra collars are quite a tight fit)

    Still, the 1109 kit should sort it all out
