Realised a flaw with my build the other day, which is the oil pump casing (billet gears inside) is a 1.6(?) version that doesn't have the mounting point for the trigger wheel sensor.

Luckily my engine builder can create me a bracket to hold the sensor in place without me having to replace the pump with a different one.

I'm actually also about to make some more orders from the US, multiple sellers involved, I need a few more parts... inconel/locking hardware, thermostat blank, freeze plug and billet water pump inlet from Hawley performance, then possibly some sort of adjustable FPR system, maybe the FueLab one, I've got a Walbro 255 pump to wire in and I don't trust the OEM FPR. Whether or not I couple this with a dual feed rail or similar I don't know yet.

I've figured out the coolant routing around the engine thanks to a discussion with pysber_0ptix.

I think most of what's left now will be figuring out all the wiring. I'm going to make a list of everything and document it in here though because I'll end up forgetting.

always enjoying your updates.

As far as fuel goes, the stock fuel rail and FPR should be just fine. I would give it a try, because upgrading later is a super easy and quick task, no annoying stuff
