    the worst photo they could have taken, a red engine against a red background but you can click on the piccie to make it bigger and see in more detail. Totally bananas :)

    A Merlin with no blower would be called a Meteor
    I've posted up some guy who's dropped one in an old Rover SD1, I'll see if I can find it

    Pretty ridiculous, just because you can doesn't mean you have too. Still it looks pretty cool (but not as cool as the merlin powered ones 8))
