Very nice! :)

what are your plans with this? drag car? what boost you gonna run?

an efi c1j has yet to be proven better than the carb (although it should be),nobody has yet proper gone to town with some boost down the pod have they?

nayls its richie from rtoc by the way.  my mate made the manifold up for me. as for efi on a c1j not that many people have really done it i can name only a handfull and yes there results were good im going into hill climbing as thats were the efi will be a gain as for boost i woul have at a guess 18-20 psi obviosly i can up that or drop it depending on how it all goes. i do all the work myself except for the mapping im yet to get my head round it but im learning.

yep i knew it was you mate,the name give it away lol :)

i badly wanna see someone go mad on an efi c1j for santa pod,seems all the big boosters are still on carbs,which is strange as e.f.i should prove better & easier.

at all depends on were you want to start what you budget is ect and your knowledge. the ecu alone is 550 100 wiring loom injectors are say 50 quid second hand. map sensor coil pack trigger wheel trigger sensor water temp sensor around the 100 quid mark for the lot. its just the manifold design you will need to work out what you want to do. i would budget for 500 pound for a manifold with throttle body and fuel rail. as for me doing it i wouldnt charge you as i do it as a hobbie mate but funds at the end of the day are your biggest issue.  the mapping i get done for fairly cheap by a autourised installer af adaptronic equiptment

well had half an hour spare time today so dropped the engine in still a fair bit to do but only lots of little jobs. biggest job is finding a suitable fuel pump probaby end up going down the coosie route.

a better picture of progress now you can see the scuttle cover template in situ so im going to knock a carbon fibre one up maybe even stick to the white. i changed the header tanks plans slightly got rid of the heater matrix hoses all together along with the swirl pot so minimal hoses in there now. just means i have no heating but thats ok on track.  also decided today i didnt like the oe horn setup so removed the bracket for that and replaced the huge one with a little tiny electric one which can be heard rather than that little pwarp noise.

finished of part of the boost piping cylinder head end plate is to have two sensor holes tapped into it. also got the strut brace to figure out i just need the bar making accross as it interferes with the pipe work. then need to get my ecu ordered up but was doing all the time consuming jobs first so not much to show really

hardly any progress due to working away even though its for sale im still fitting all the bits i have bought for it exhaust elbow is fitted along with the bms downpipe. catch tank now fitted slightly lower due to the strut brace handles interfeering. cylinder head end plate now has the sensors fitted and the car is all filled up with its fluids.
