For those that have sent PMs looking for base maps. My post count is too low right now to reply to those PMs. You can send me an email if you'd like. Hope that's not a forum rule violation. [email protected]

I'll try to get the post count up as quickly as I can.

Update:
Im in a couple of gb's atm in the states so hopefully when they go through i can get my stuff

1. Kg Works cluster


2. Feed Style sideskirts


3. Spark leads cover


Ill also be purchasing a few more things this week
They include my fuel injectors, Fuel pump, intercooler piping and bov

Almost there so im getting pretty excited. Also bought my clutch last week, Os Giken Super Single clutch and fly All thats left to do in purchase the above and sort out an engine to start mounting everything to it. Once i get that on the spare ill take my car off the road and install it as well as wire in and tune the haltech

Im still undecided on whether or not to get cams to put in the motor when i get it. Should i get cams now or wait till later ?

A few generic pics to help my update look better haha..



440 cc injectors


Clutch

Here are a couple of photos from a rained out meet the other night








Cheers

Update:

A lot has happened in the last few months. Purchased all my parts and started doing the swap. Removed the old engine and pulled the new engine from its donor (nb6 motor). Pulled the motor apart to replace the seals and head gasket. While i was there i installed some toda cams. I am up to the stage of putting the motor back together and starting to finish this off. Also decided to go ls2 coils because i can just wire them in with the haltech and will give me all the spark i need

So list of what to do.
- Put the motor together (replace all seals cometic headgasket and arp stud kit)
- Install Clutch, manifold, turbo lines and turbo
- Put Motor in the bay and hook everything up (Intercooler and piping, Oil cooler and mount dump pipe etc.)
- Wire in the haltech w/ ls2 coils and wire in the innovate and defi link display.
- TUNE

Also bought an fd carbon diffuser to play around with and it should look pretty sick.

Ill update when anything else happens. Pics below.


heres a couple pics of mock up (note: Will sit higher once bumper is cut)




Pics of the engine and bay:




Defi link display and sensors in


Ill take new pics of the new engine and that when i go there next..

Cheers dudes

Update:

So the engine is back together and ready to go back in the car. Over the last week i changed over the fittings and hoses for better quality ones and just to give my self i bit more insurance. Also started mocking up my coolant re route and that will be done inside the car.

All thats left now is wiring (haltech including ls2 coils, defi, wideband and boost) exhaust and tuning

so close now.

Heres the motor back together fully

Update:

Well the car is back together now.. Its running extremely well. After a few injector problems i could only do the first tune on 6 psi making 160 rwhp using stock injectors.. But i then got some 570cc bosch ones and went back for a retune. The car made 219 rwhp on 12 psi. Very happy with that considering its an stock 1.6 with just cams and a small 2254r

ill post pics when i have them.

Cheers

Just out of interest does that gauge face work with our clusters or did you get a cluster from a Jap car that only goes up to 180?

After about two weeks of running the rings decided to go :( So had a lot to think about. Could either part out, swap the motor for another stocker and hope for the best.. or go all out and build something ive always wanted.

I chose the last option Time to build an all out track car.

First things first. Some cheap turbo gear came up for sale in the US so i snapped that up and it was in Australia not long after.

Being so close to christmas now i dont have time to send the motor off. But that will be first of the agenda for next year So at the moment im in the process of doing the suspension. Should have the control arms and diff out by the weekend. Then during holidays i can start to put the car back together and get it rolling again.

Its been a long few months but its almost over. Hoping to get the car driving by the end of february.

Whose manifold is that? And are you seriously going to track those huge wheels? They look expensive.
