Is this red cambelt a IL Motorsport cambelt? If so - swap it for a OEM or Gates one. The IL one is notorious for lenghtening...

Gates Timingbelt is on its way.

For the moment I'm installing the oil cooler.
I will be placing it behind the Radiator.

Nice build, love the wire tuck and white bay. did a tuck myself but left the relays in place, where did you put them?
How did you route your cabbles from the cabin to the inside of the fender?

I used a cap to block the original wire hole and drilled a new hole and the chassis so the wires are thuged under the fender.

I only used the relays of my lights and the diagnose box (for if I have a problem in the future).
Drove +- 100 miles like this and found that the relays where getting wet. (battery was dead after 1 day standing) big currant leak because the water in the relays. So had to make them waterproof.

Installed the new oil feed to turbo.



Looks better.



I was testing boost and popped a vacuum plug.
Was still able to run 10 psi with boost leak.




Than I had this great Idea of building an open hood exhaust for an upcoming event.



One day later. Finished product. fitment was perfect.



The day before the event I decided to change my valve seals. (had some smoke at idl and oil smelled like gas).
I used a rope to block the valves from folling in the cylinder. Worked fine for me .




Took me 2 hours to finish the valve seals swap.



old vs new seals



And than this happened. Car was running like ****. Extreem rich.. 10's at idl. and acceleration was real bad.
Found that magasquirt was reading -20C (-4F) coolant temp, it is summer and hot in belgium. So my coolant temp sensor was f_cked.. I ordered one over night.




Removed the hood and installed my UP(pipe)
Time for some drag race fun !!!!








Focus RS?
Lets do this.




Waking up the next day with a view on the lovely Miata and dragstrip.


Made this for fun.

Had my first trackday last weekend. Car was running great. The bad thing was, I had no stopping power on my stock brakes. Really spongy feeling and they did not stop at all.
So time for some upgrades. Steel lines, ebc grooved disks and a set of racing pads.

Don't waste money on grooved discs. I don't recommend EBC pads.

Did you have fresh fluid right before the track day?

Yes I replaced all the fluids before track day.
What brand of pads would you recommend ?

Had my first drift day at my local track. (Circuit Zolder Belgium)
It was a full day with different tracks starting with easy donuts and ending with 5 turn drifts. Donuts were not a problem but curves were hugely difficult. I have no power steering and I later found out that I had my upper A arms on the front suspension switched. this made my caster really bad and heavy on the steering.



Bought a open diff from a NB and had it welded up by a buddy. Ready for some sideway action.





No place for 2 tires in the trunk. So I had to improvise.

Mazda mx5 Turbo Duivelsberg Circuit - YouTube

Smashed a wheel at 3:40 min. Thankfully it was one of my spare wheels. (Rota's are fine)
This was my first time drifing (trying to drift) on dry.
A friendly guy told me that I needed stiffer swaybars, it would help a lot.

So the next day I searched the web on a cheap set and bought a second hand Jackson racing Swaybar kit with polyurethane bushings.

Zolder is great, learn when to lift at the dB meters and you'll be fine. We've been black flagged on test days before we learnt where to lift exactly

Did some research and found a picture with the locations of the two dB measuring points.



I will keep that in mind for next time. Thanks !
