yup when cold , i had andy hughes car which hadn't been started for 2 months and when we got it running it sounded as quiet as a standard engine .
i actually mentioned to the mapper that it sounded so quiet and i thought there should be some noise due to the forged pistons.

new engine in.... its a bit slappy when running... but if it holds together i can cope

didnt get a chance to re-paint the inlet... so doesnt look very different to the old engine bigger turbo.




Old engine.... going to strip it down at home for a look. Anyone know the size and shape of standard EJ20 head bolts?



starting the stripping...









Whats left of the big end bearing on No2. Think the whole bearing has disintegrated!

1 screw on the oil pump cover loose... could have been costly (but the bearing beat it to failing!)



RH head... (seems to have LIN and LEX cams same as LH head :S)




RH pistons

LH pistons


LH Head




nice crosshatching on bores... pistons look in good shape too.

New or rather inreased and flow matched 440 injectors on there way from Lateral. Cheers Mark

Around about 900cc, so lots of head room for E85. Should hopefully have them by the end of the week, with the adapters for phase1... and mapped next week in time for the final TA round.

New injectors arrived... thanks for the quick turn around Mark/Lateral.

Some questions... The injectors are in bags marked with 71 or 72 (2 of each). This will be the flow rate in lb/hr yes?

So 71 and 72 are aprox 750cc? I'll put the larger in the turbo side of the engine (No3 anyway)

Next - some bevelled washers were supplied. Are these part of the Phase2 into Phase1 collars? Where do these fit?


some pics

Anyone tell me what this is?

Its a wee ECU (about half size of OE engine 'ECU'). Its located behind the centre dash panel where the heaters/stereo live etc

I'm going to remove it and test... but if the car seems to work, and it might be something i find not working later on I rather keep it

It was/is the DCCD ecu..


Fitted the 900cc injectors, with twin hole pintles....and some wee jobs, reflective alu tape on IC pipework above turbo, and fitted a big E sticker for the fire ext pull on the scuttle.


old 440 phase1 injectors in rails with caps removed. (removed the O/S rail as its easier to get the bevelled washer in and work on the rails)


scabby inlet sans fuel rail... really needs a paint. (thats where i put the bevelled washers (bevel up)... I trust that is correct )


injector collar to fit phase 2 to phase 1.



collar fitted to phase 2 900cc (increased phase2 440)



new injectors in rail with spaces and caps.


Compensated the map/fueling by scaling the injectors to 55%. That should do for the short drive to get it on the rollers and mapped properly again.



Old phase1 440cc STi injectors

You need to move the incar nozzle as its doing nothing there.And you need at least 3 under bonnet,Fuse box,Turbo,And front of engine.Having had 2 large car fires both with plumbed in systems this saved my cars plus the marshalls.

thats as per LifeLine's instructions.

For single passenger closed car - front pointing down towards floor (mine could be pointing down more)

1 in engine bay - as I said I want more.

had it remapped and hit a couple of more issues...

Cant get more than 1.5bar - actuator too weak

Misfire at just over 6000rpm. Any thoughts?! All the usual electrical suspects were checked, and swapped for known working items. CAS, Coil Pack, leads, new plugs etc..... Looking for any other suggestions.

Results -

360bhp @ 6083rpm
321lb/ft @ 5190rpm

At 1.5bar peak, falling to 1.25bar

it was fun... and really highlighted where i need to improve the car... and remided me I need to stay calm when driving (never seems to happen)

1st hot lap of first TimeAttack session... too hot into to Russels chicane...




Car...... is still running despite 500+mile drive down, fullday open pit trackday on sat, TA on sun and 500+mile drive home today....only had a couple of minor hicups all weekend. It split a wee coolant hose after a hard run. It didnt go on track, but when sitting back it the pits, Was a ballache to get at being right under the inlet (wee 90deg short hose). Got some stronger hose and help from a smaller handed Matty from Wallace Performance Also blew a boost hose off in practice.... (had that pipework off to fix coolant hose!)

It seems to be puffing out smoke on high boost.... i'm not convinced its turbo seals, as sometimes you see it from the driver side front :l reassuring when flat out from 4th to 5th!! (only smoke on gearchanges) Nothing dripping or leaking, but there is oil mist round the inside of the drivers wing. Need to investigate further. I still have the standard breather plumbing.

I could feel the misfire around 6000rpm and up when running anything over 1bar.... but just kept my foot to the floor and hoped for the best....

My fastest lap was a low 1:21... not far off Phill England (0.3s) in the yellow STi V3 TypeR. He was my target before hand... so in a way its good that I got close at the first attempt (his third year i think)... but a bit that i didnt beat him looking back at my fastest lap (blocked, messy etc). Phill is running low 300's but with better susp/brakes and a lighter car... so my 357bhp should even that out

Huge thanks to the guys at Wallace Performance for some last minute work (whilst putting the Skyline back together)... Mark at Lateral for quick delivery of parts on the run up to sunday too

i understand that adam, i was asking about map sensor not maf sensor mate, the early ones pre 97 had a 2 bar map sensor so you can run 1 bar or a tad over depending, the later models had a 3 bar one,
