Ill keep most plans to updates as and when i get round to them, wouldnt want to ruin the suprises now would i? haha!

To give you some idea of spec the decals on the back doors and the size of the brakes should give you an idea

And yes, the decals etc werent to my liking, i refuses to have stickers and badges on any of my vehicles so they all had to go! Sleeper is the way this one will be going, bonnet vents etc, everything will be gone

And changing the clutch fluid as my clutch seems to get half way back up and gets stuck! But that seems to have made it worse if anything, so i'll need to figure out what is going on there now before drag racing on saturday

So, a few mor eupdates since the racing, the hardening has came off a cam tip, so a new cam has been purchased and is ready to fit when i get round to it!

So while its been parked up i decided maybe a wash would be a good start! Anyone who knows me will know how dirty my cars always are, so this is a miracle....

Need to get the new cam fitted over christmas too

And i think i am going to treat myself to some ABW arches for her and some Grid driftsin 8.5 :P

Got a load more parts to take down next week to get coated.

I went to change the cam the other day got 3 bolts out fine but one of them is stuck fast and wont come out, which resulted in a rounded head, and reluctant to take the engine out I will need to figure out a plan to remove it and bolt extractors only mullered the head of the bolt further

Looking good. I take it you have got no further with the wrap? Regarding the rounded bolt head - Can you not weld another nut to the top of the bolt so that you can undo it?

yes i just wasnt very keen on welding in an open engine, i can get enough of a lift by just releasing the engine mounts to get to it so was hoping to drill it out as its easier to control the swarf that was all.

Nope no further with the wrap yet, the weather down here has been horrendous! Also looking at adding more bars to the roll cage etc, but all in good time,

Will be aiming to hill climb it next year

Just pull the engine out for the sake of a couple hours and faffing about with little space.

Well I whipped the engine out and got the cam cap bolt undone, with a big hammer and a 9mm socket lol.

When I pulled the old cam out it seems like I've had a shim fail, not so much the cam. So the new cam was fitted and its now sat at engine tuner getting reshimmed. And hopefully will be done this week so I can get it back in this weekend!

I am missing boost in my life!

Also have a set of ABW wide arches sat in my living room, so am looking for some wheels to suit now!

Well, not alot has happened so far,

Got the cam fixed by Enginetuner, a new shim and bucket was required. The shim was completely destroyed. So a new shim and bucket got that sorted. Refitted the engine and enjoyed it for a few months,

I had a blown exhaust gasket on the centre pipe so i swapped that out and the dome washer on the back end of the turbo gave up the ghost. So i got these swapped out with my mate.

Which then led to changing the studs, nuts and springs on the turbo to downpipe connection too as the threads had died.

Once i had all that done I thought I would treat it to some meth, but when I drove it it wasnt boosting correctly (1.2 bar instead of 1.5) and felt sluggish and spluttery.

Got under it again week before last and found out my japspeed manifold has carked it! Big crack around the collector leaking exhaust gaskets. So that was the end of that!

So ive now ordered myself a new equal length manifold from the states,

321 titanium steel, v band up pipe etc! This thing seriously is the nuts.. and Chris from KillerB motorsport is an awesome guy to deal with, really knows his stuff and was extremely helpful.

Should see some interesting results from this and hopefully get rid of that annoying drop off at high revs and give me some extra spool, torques and horses!

This is the baby - http://www.killerbmotorsport.com/index_files/header.htm

Big thanks to Craig (Infected by sti) for sorting me out a 2.5 sump and pick up to suit the new manifold. Will be ordering a KillerB pick up when the funds allow.

Unfortunately this month is going to be a killer,

Manifold + import taxes, sump and pick up, Tax, Mot, Remap at enginetuner, fuel, meth, Drag days...

The joys of modified car ownership! although I am mega excited about getting the manifold on and sorted!

Well, I got the sump off, and realised I have a cosworth baffled sump.

So now I need to source a 2.5 baffled sump which will probably come from killer b motosport again along with one of their pick ups. So the 2.0 sump and baffle etc will be up for sale soon.

Just got an email from killer b and my manifold should be here in a couple of weeks. Which is a shame as I will miss out on the 2 days drag racing in august. This season is pretty much a write off.

So the plan is to get all the new kit fitted and set up along with tax and mot, and a remap.

Then I shall treat her to some meths and see how it goes round the twisties and hopefully get on some track days later in august

Well, all Is sorted now,

Manifold arrived yesterday and I wrapped it in DEI titanium heatwrap with stainless cable ties.

So I have all the parts I need ready for it to head off to engine tuner towards the end of this week once I have finished my cam cover gasket!

So I have to fit -

Heatwrapped Killer B Motorsport titanium equal length manifold

2.5 sump, pick up + dipstick

New gaskets for the manifold

New seals, bolts, etc for the cam cover

So now all I need is someone to transport it to engine tuner and to measure out my meths so I can get the dual maps sorted!

Hoping for some decent gains on this new manifold!

Well after much hassle and stuff at engine tuner yesterday we eventually got the manifold fitted. The manifold was fouling my oil temperature sensor and the oil filter with the sandwich plate for my oil cooler.

Now just to get the car started we removed the sandwich plate and got it running as the quote had gone out the window with the amount of faffing around.

So now I have to remove the standard oil cooler and modify the pipework to suit, to get the clearence for my filter and sandwich plate.

What a nightmare.

But while the day wasn't a total success it was good to chat to martyn and co and get some future plans in motion and we will be aiming for a 10second 1/4mile in the current trim.

The ecu should be out the car and on the way for the alkatek upgrade next week in time for mapping when he comes back!

So,

We have got the car finished and remapped on the 99, and meth maps with the new alkatek ecu upgrade.

The results were 485bhp on the v power map, and 532 on the meth map.




I got her MOT'd today, it was pretty straight forward, not even an advisory. so hopefully il get some tax in the next week or so, still got half a tank of meth left in it for when the tax is on

Hi Adam,

I haven't got anything as my simtek was upgraded to the alkatek it wasn't a different ecu just software/chip upgrades to my existing ecu! Good luck with the hunt though!
