  1. Engine Mapped N/A

    Had the engine mapped Yesterday, see below. No real issues apart from a blown fuel pump fuse when we first started the engine..... 197 at the wheels, so about 220 at the flywheel, which isnt bad considering its 8.3:1 CR sucking through the intercooler & has a far from ideal exhaust especially the elbow that replaces the turbo......

  4. Tidy up Under the front

    One of the changes I made while the car was off the road was to tidy up under the front clam - the main reason for this was to make room to install an Anti Roll bar and to make space for a Water/MEOH tank.

  5. Engine Built - Ready to go !

    So the engine build is complete & clutch/gearbox installed - all ready for when I get back from work next time. In the mean time the Wiring loom for the New ECU should be completed, so it will be straight to the dyno when I am back (hopefully)
