What does the madman system monitor? Besides EGT?

I don't have a Madmand system, I have an MGL avionics setup. Mine only monitors to EGT temps ( I have one pre turbo and one post turbo), I can also monitor 2 cylinder head temps .... but that's it. As far as I know the Madman does the same as mine, but you can monitor things like boost, oil temps, oil pressure, water temps and I know Christos has an inclinometer and a few other funny things. I think it will also depend on what you want to spend.

Picked up my custom radiator this morning looks great. Was lucky to score the core thanks to Kobus at silverton radiators Rustenburg and a buddy of mine who sorted the aluminum welding!

Right so new pistons in with new sleeves and the block and sleeves skimmed completely flat with each other and a piston protrusion of .025-.03.

The head gasket I'm using according to my supplier is a 1.6mm victor reinz apparently the best of The best! My engineering guy says with me wanting to turbo the motor we should try and get the compression lower, is this true and even possible? And how?

ANDRE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...... before you assemble the block...... those sleeves should protrude the block, by I think 0.07mm. This will make the gasket seal perfectly, especially with 22-23:1 compression ratio !!!

Possible solution for this.... piano wire the block. Or what I did was i bought some stainless steel shim stock and cut rings the size of the sleeves and then placed the head gasket on top the ensure they stayed in place.
