Started off with a tatty 16vT Coupe, good engine though with good oil pressure. No play in the turbo either.

Cut the front end off and got to work the day after we got it back home.

Stripped everything I'll need although I think the fuel evaporation stuff may have been thrown away by mistake.


Compulsory standing in the empty enigne bay looking a bit gay picture


Twin spark coming out

Gave the rocker cover a good clean with a drill extension and generally tidied it up a bit. Sump was taken off and stripped to bare metal then resprayed in high temp silver.

Got loads of silicone hoses ready to go on soon. Also got an electronic boost controller, Stack boost gauge, Forge dump valve plus a few more nice bits. Will have a FMIC once I've been paid again!

Also been stripping and spraying various bits. Front subframe is gaining polybushed wishbones and Whiteline ARBs, just gotta give it a few more layers of paint.

Currently waiting for BC racing Coupe coilovers to arrive coolio.gif coolio.gif


Just got to make a start on the wiring now which has got me a bit worried blink.gif
