Power Sausages.

  1. My bay has no power sausages, but then it has no power which I'm guessing, probably explains it.
    A couple of my other cars do have the sausages of power, and here's a couple of pictures of them.

    A half dozen skinny Chipolatas.

    And four big old, full fat, Jumbo Saveloys

    Both produce about 190 normally aspirated bhp's from two & a half litres, see if you can guess which way is the most fun...

    Come on, don't be shy, let's see your sausages, post them up here for all to see.

    You can achieve a similar look by using pipe lagging tubes placed in a row across the top of pretty much any engine.

  8. What about steak Manifold ...wrap steak in foil settle it on top or next to manifold .
    Go for a drive and have a succulent steak when you get back no cost in cooking if you intend thedrive any way .

  10. Yes, fabulous, sadly not the type of car to go shopping at the local Sainsbury's, which is about as far as I go at the moment. :(

  11. It doesn't work.
    Power sausages are no-where near hot enough to cook anything. The only thing in the whole book, 'Manifold Destiny' that works reliably is the method of tenderising steak. Although I did manage to cook some braising steak on the exhaust manifolds.

  12. I reckon the 4 banger. Porsche 924 or similar?
     
  13. Close enough, it's a sixteen valve 944S, where bog all happens until 4,000 rpm and then all hell breaks loose. The six pot Rover 75 is far more refined.

  14. What sort of man wants a refined sausage? What a man needs is a rampant sausage.

    Don't get a German sausage, they are the wurst!
     
  17. I'm a member of a local cycling club, and we are sponsored by a chain of butchers who emblazon our jerseys with 'Goldwurst-Power' - Golden power sausage. I won some in a race last year, very nice they are too. https://www.goldwurst.ch/Goldwurst-Power.htm Even better is the 'hopping sausage'. A large smiling sausage on a big spring that sits outside their shops. You're going to have to imagine this bit, but you can sit on the sausage and bounce up and down, it was a great treat for the children when they were younger. Don't know if this will work, but you can find the 'hopping sausage' on Google maps https://www.google.com/maps/@47.492...V5MoaumI5VS45nRCGhL_!2e10!3e12!7i10000!8i5000

  18. Better than my sausages, that!
     
  19. I had a quick look under the hood of my Volvo and as expected there was a total lack of any power sausages:D
