one of my mates built the carb for me. hes done quite a few now and his 5 is awesome.
he normally brings his lc1 round and then do some roadtests to make sure it doesnt run lean under boost.

i would like to get a wideband afr sensor in there tho just to be sure

new engine repainted black, then next was the oil pump (flash brings out some of the yellow on the edges. its not seen without the flash though)



then the sump



(where possible ive replace all bolts with allen key cap bolts)







head bolted down with 2 old bolts to stop the liners moving







chrome fan bracket



et15 7.5x16's with out the arches lol



after i cleaned out the garage of all the old rust



engine bay



carbon scuttle covers



prototype manifold (doesnt quite fit though)
 


intercooler remounted



and seeing as the wheels can be seen in the last pic, here he is seeing daylight for the first time in a few months





that was mondays work.

tonight i have started to sand back the strut tops and i have started to drill the hole for my boost pipe to go through, but as the battery in my drill died i didnt get very far . . .

more pics soon

 :D
