Uprated pump & FPR turned up today so I fitted the in-tank pump, wasn't to bad a job thankfully, all done in an hour with dropping the tank out :)
So tempting to try to get a loan to finish it  :lol:

I used to have a carbon plug cover on my clio, my mate made it for me from a mould of the original so had the embossed lettering too

Going to be starting on this soon, sold my target rifle to free up some cash to finish it (a grand  :shock: ), gutted but I can save up for a new one over winter for next season..
Just sorted the ecu so will get on with the wiring & dropping the other engine in, then in a couple of weeks I should have the turbo as well, fingers crossed I will have it done by October time before it starts to get to cold.
Also won a half cage on ebay for 30, seller is ignoring me now though  :(
Then will need it mapped & see how long the box lasts  :mrgreen:

Ecu turned up today & picking up the cage tomorrow night, will have the cash for the turbo end of this month as well, so fingers crossed it will be running beginning of October, aiming to have it fully mapped & ready for the RTOC RR day on the 22nd.
I'll try to get some more picccies of the car & progress as I go.

Think that is just an old advert from the previous owner of the engine

Hoping to have the engine out of the 19 tomorrow & poss drop the new one in, then we'll see if things fit & if I can wire in an aftermarket ECU :lol:
Got my cage but need to pull a front seat out to get it in & didn't have time today after stripping James' old GTT, may she RIP  :(

Already tried that had an argument on the phone and spoke with MD of bodyshop they advised due to the car having no windows and only 3 wheels that they were unable to store in a secure location.  Now this is not my problem and there's as bits from the car have also gone missing, i spoke to insurers and my car insurance will only cover for 100 for personal belonging's in the car :(  so that's part of my glasse's cost's. The garage advised due to the above they are unable to help and have sent me 50 as goodwill gesture cheque fecking bastards.  That just about covers the toolbox alone :(  It's not all my tools but a fair few bits are in there like ratchet's, Halford pro torque wrenches, spanners' socket's etc.. I have estimated the content that was taken to be around 500, I have reported to the police and have got my contents items away from the home policy dealing hopefully they will seek recovery from the bodyshop only downside is these things seem to take time with insurance.

Bloody bastard's
