some tastey goodies there. i'd love some coilovers or decent dampers, the 5 feels a bit spongey when i get in it after the KA.
one of my rear bleed nipplis broke on me but i mannaged to bleed it perfectly where the hose goes into the caliper. or you could buy a screw extractor set for your drill, you can get them from most places that sell tools, screwfix, b&q etc  :)

yeah seems to be, I found the breather hose to the rocker cover had a big hole in it and Ive also added a extra one way valve so that should be ok. what do you think of the readings do they still seem irrectic?

I got 12.2 in 3rd gear and 12.6 in 4th :? both at 5000rpm

Im looking forward to getting this block with the forged pistons, I ve just been thinking of what im going to fit with this engine I shall put a bit of a list I hoping of getting around the 190bhp mark.

T25 with .49 rear 225 bhp 60 trim comp wheel  (20psi)
285 piper cam
piper valve springs
baffled sump
Top Specification Head cgb  (Is this nessasary?)
Valeo clutch  (will this be good enough?)

I wouldn't say a modififed head was necessary Steve ran a standard head with the inlet ports opened slightly and the car produced 207bhp with the low comps, unknown what it would do with the forged jobbies and the slightly more boost he was running.

Valeo clutch is a necessary mate and is well upto the job,

Speak to Steve ref the turbo but what you have put down is again very similair to what Steve was running if not the same.

Right time for a update me thinks Ive taken out my old engine as it was starting to get a bit old and a pain to drive it had done 130.000  :lol: so its been a goodun, Ive got big plans for this new build and hoping for some good power figures Its going to include forged pistons,piper cams, bigger turbo etc etc anyways some picies of what Ive been upto.

Me and my old man manged to get the engine out by hand wasnt easy though as I left the crank pully on  :roll: Gave the bay a clean with the jet wash.


This is the new engine thats going in Its steves old one with forged pistons in and new liners in, Im going to be changing the bearings etc and checking the crank before she goes in. Also gave it a fresh lick of paint.


Pipercam 285 kit with pully etc.


Fancy leads.


Ive cleaned the head and manifold and also painted a few bits, I think Im goin get the head skimed and I will also be lapping the valves.


My mate made me up some nice alu hose bungs.


Still lots of bits and bobs to get but hoping I will have it done for after christmas thats If I have any money left :lol:
