Step 2:  Fit proper engine.




Re-used campus gearbox (btw 2 dowels need to be removed to use it)
Connected both gearbox mounts
Gear shifter
Speedo drive
Clutch
Both driveshafts
Exhaust downpipe
Reconnect shocks
Starter motor

On tomorrows to do list.

Modify and fit front engine mount, its gonna need more work than i realised
Get smaller aux belt
Get some gearbox fliud
Connect fuel lines

And then try to make sense of either the wiring or the plumbing

Half the wiring done. I just have to find the fuel pump relay and interrupt it with the new fuel pump feed (i think anyway)

Whilst checking the fuel pressure its starting to seep from one of my joints, so i have to make that a more permenant fitting.

Hole cut through firewall for nice neat loom grommet.

Front engine mount chopped up and fitted

Gonna get the aux belt tomorrow and give the gearbox some fresh oil.

Then figure out the plumbing for coolant and intercooler and im pretty much done.

Fuck this car!  All of the coolant pipes will need chopping about to fit, the intercooler doesnt fit. Ive borrowed my mates and i cant get that to fit.

The fuel pump wire is a mystery, ive tried to tap straight into the fuel pump relay (which i figured was the one that made a noise when ignition was on). But i tried every wire down there, even removing the relay and trying every wire again.



All i get when cranking is a struggle to start then itll only run for half a second while im still cranking.

Losing patience

This is all new to me I'm afraid.

Everybody else seems to have disappeared as well.

Howabout this.
If i run a line directly to the fuel pump live from the fuel pump signal from the new loom, then a local earth on the pump.
Disconnecting the original loom all together?

Ok ive figured it out.   had the fuel lines the wrong way round  :lol:

Fuel pump live to that thick brown wire with the relay missing and boom, shes alive.

Next i have to finish the coolant hoses and intercooler hoses. This will be the hardest part i think.

Exhaust done.


The original exhaust sits in a pocket under the body with a heat shield, this exhaust misses that pocket by about 5 inches and sits on the fuel tank (with a rubber donut inbetween)
Even if i had got it in there it still would have had the same angle it does now as i have no back box or tip thing.
Straight off the cat atm.

Cooling, i am in need of a gt rad as my campus one is pretty unsuitable.
If anyones got a cheap one going gimme a shout  :D

Ok the cars 99% done :D

Its all in and connected up but ive got issues with the water flow, so still need to look at that, but otherwise, all done. Cant wait to drive it.

My buddy lemme borrow his intercooler and piping and rad whilst his is off the road.

Starts and ticks over like a beaut. Even with the cooling issues, its getting real pressure in the cooling and nothing leaking or popping off.
