An Apology To Alan (with No Meat In It)

Recommended Posts

A while ago, in some no doubt very important conversation, I told Saff that all Veyrons were two tone in colour.

He fought long and hard to claim otherwise - even producing a small, inconclusive photo of an all-black one (which I claimed was black and a really really dark blue - or something)

Well. Today I apologise.

It seems that yes, indeed, someone is foolish enough to spec one in a single colour. And not just any single colour, a single primary colour.

Red.

So...

Dear Alan.

I was wrong - there is a one-colour Veyron.

And it looks shithouse.

1. Emsta - sorry if there is a misunderstanding, this was not meant as a dig at Saff at all. He said he saw a flat colour one, I didn't believe him - turns out I was wrong (so horribly, horribly wrong...)

2. Nick - it's as good as I can find... :)

its worth how many million? and you didnt think they would let you have it any god damn colour you want? alot of them are two tone and even those solid ones could be red over red or black over black on paper, so technically they may be two tone? even though they are both the same tone lol

    • This goes over my head haha. Can you change the ceramic turbine to a steel one for better reliability?
    • Ah right, I do remember hearing a while back about that balancing thing that you just mentioned. I assumed I could rebuild it and then just get the shop to balance it (until i realised there's no rebuild kit). My turbo is fine but I am running higher boost I believe so just incase the time comes the reason I'd rather rebuild it, is to save at least $1,000 on tuning it, especially as I'm not trying to make huge power.
    • See my last post in this thread. Mixing and matching 26 cranks and rods and Neos causing wrinkles that you need to stay on top of.  
    • Boost rag. Blocked cat. Shitty lifters. Cam timing wrong. CAS in the wrong spot somehow. Cursed by a wandering gypsie, built on a pet cemetary, etc.
    • There is no "rebuild" of the standard core, with its ceramic turbine. Any "rebuild" is actually a "recore". The original Hitachi BB core is actually quite large (ie long). The distance between the comp housing and the turbine housing is large. I got an OP6 highflow from Tao. The BB core he uses is tiny by comparison. The turbine housing sits in the same spot (it has to, because it is bolted to the exhaust manifold, and so that and the dump are all in the same place. But the comp housing moves backwards in the engine bay because of the shorter centre section, and so you need to mod your inlet pipe (by any of a number of different methods) and the water and oil hoses need some changes too.
