will take some pictures of the doner car over the weekend but it dont look like much not been driven in 10 months


so the plan is take what ever parts i need from the doner car and sell the rest , then possibly a td05 or td06 turbo and about 1.6 bar of boost and were off :happy) :happy) :happy)


will update over weekend with what work i get done :nuts) :nuts)

03/07/11

THE DONER CAR

well here is the beast was not driven in nearly 2 years but has a mega spec might not look it but most parts are next too new lol charged the battery too today out in gedis place and she was well able for buns in her sorry state sounds lovely with the turbo too

Image

Image

Image

Image

fancy interior ha ah

Image

Image

another emb

Image

hks and greddy gauges

Image

Image


Image

Image

61kms what a shame
Image



so next saturday when the garage is free we have a supercharged levin to finish for gedis first the stripping will start and see what im keeping and selling once everything is off mine will come out and the fun will start i reckon a month maybe two as im going doing a lot of cleaning and spraying ,undersealing to mine :)

im getting rid of the emb getting a full standalone must get bigger injectors ,a fuel pump ,boost controller , bigger rad and loads more i cant remember now ha ha

UPDATE 09/07/11

Started stripping today with kieran had a c**t of a day being honest every bolt was nearly siezed but we got there in the end lol

Image


Image

Image
grooved discs braided lines and konei pads

Image

Image


konei coilovers

Image


Image

greddy intercooler

Image

Image

rear strut

Image

Image

Image

td04 tubby which is totally f*** lol

Image

will find it hard fitting a huge tubby here lol

Image

Image

ENGINE BILL OUCH !!!!

Image


also stripped all rocker covers ,inlet mani fuse box basically anything that can be sprayed so must get some primer and get that started

next weekend engine gearbox clutch and lsd is coming out and the head is coming off to get a new h/g and some arp bolts

after that its sell a few bits and get some more parts for the build once i have everything my car will go out and get engine taken out the bay sprayed and hopefully a big garrett turbo with external waste fitted

ROLL ON NEXT WEEKEND :) :)


UPDATE 16/07/2011

well most of the work done now its up to me to get some new parts now before i can go any further really will be doing a lot of cleaning and tidying up of parts now until i get sorted ,would like to sell a few bits really to free up some cash for new parts

looking for motec/haltech ecu and gt2871r turbo there the two major parts really only need fuel pump injestors small bits then :)

the challenge ahead
Image

no fancy garages for this build ha ha

Image

easy as that
Image

Image


Image

lovely exedy clutch and lightened flywheel
Image

Image

diff out


Image

as it is now

Image


going to take off head tmw in preperation for arp bolts and a fresh head gasket ,hopefully things sell now and we can keep moving on this one :)


24/07/2011

decided to strip engine to be 100 % sure on the build and it was just as well lol

bottom end was perfect

Image

Image

the head which last owner said the head gasket was gone ,dont know where he got that idea as it was perfect lol



Image

Image

Image

marking shims

Image

here is where we found an issue now im no engine builder but surely using two different type of valves is not common practise lol

Image

Image

Image


plan is to either use my head on the na car or else source two valves ,must decide soon as its holding us up ha ha



27/07/2011

just a few parts i picked up

arp bolts
ik22 plugs
cometic head gasket
walbro fuel pump
garrett 2871r turbo :)

Image

Image


UPDATE 30/07/11

ok took one step forward and about five back today ha ha , got the engine out of my own and got ready for painting the bay which will happen next week but the garett 2871r turbo is a no go :( with the design on my manifold the tubo just wont fit its too close to the block and fouling in loads of places so im going to have to settle for the td04 FOR NOW !!!

just going to get her set up see what she makes and look into getting a full new kit custom made to suit a massive tubby im absoulutely gutted as ill struggle to make 300 hp now but its only for the time being :(

on the plus note found a lovely lightened flywheel and exedy clutch in the car that i didnt know about :) so have s@3! loads of parts again for sale will make a donedeal ad tmw :)

going priming the bay monday and sorting a few small niggles

update 06/08/11

sprayed the bay today conditions are not ideal with the loom still in the bay and doing it in a dusty shed but pleased with the result looks dull in the pics but she is bling bling ha

going for ford thistle purple and to contrast it the rocker and all fuse boxes inlet mani etc are going a bright lime green ,i want the bay to be totally different so why not ha ha

Image

Image

Image

couldnt finish anything in green as it needs a few coats so you will have to wait for them pics but we did get bored waiting for stuff to dry so we did a shot of green on my astra ha ha

Image


waiting on shitloads of parts now but engine should be ready to go back in this week :)




update

17/08/2011

just some parts i have being collecting as i sell bits off the doner car
>avcr
>new front and back discs dimpled and grooved
>mintex pads
>purple catch can

there should be a beefy clutch too but finally customs caught me lol collecting it tmw

Image

SPEC stage 4 clutch ,rated to 480 torque should just about hold the power ha ha
Image




wheels arrived monday along with a trd purple oil cap, :) collecting ecu saturday morning and my wideband will be here tomorrow all i need now is 550 injectors and im done :)then the fun begins ha ha

Image

27/08/11

an expensive update ha ha

haltech p1000 standalone ecu and a innovate wideband kit

Image

Image

fitted trd mounts today along with clutch and re sealed the sumps which was a complete disaster of a job

went to fit engine and it went downhill after nearly an hour of fu**ing about we decided to leave it and come back next week with a fresh start too late in the day to be dropping gearboxes and ripping prop shafts lol
Image

Image

i offered the wheels up to the car too fronts are perfect rear needs some stretch and camber alright ha ha excuse the dust

Image
Image

Image
Image

still waiting on parts for engine so did a few small jobs today

fitted new steering wheel and took out the rpm defi in the pillar pod and replaced it with the wideband gauge which is being tigersealed in as its 52mm and defis 60 mm lol but fits nicely now after a bit of butchering bt:)

Image

got wheels on fronts are perfect may even run a 3-5 mm spacer when lowered rears definitely need work but there not so bad

Image

Image

Image

Image

how the engine is now ha , half in half out bits missing everywhere lol

Image

update
forgot my camera but the engine is now in at long last all lined up and ready to rock , need to re seal the rocker cover and fit timing belt etc but the hard work is behind us , next up is gaskets and fit turbo kit intercooler etc and hopefully get her fired up on the standard ecu before we attempt to fit the haltech ha ha

mostly electricial and cosmetic parts to be fitted then :)

here is what was left of the doner car ha ha we smashed it pretty good :) we had a 320 bmw that we were messing in and got carried away and decided to have a destruction derby lol

Image



Image


17/10/11

engine is finished :) just need to set the timing tomorrow and fit all the sprayed covers etc , didnt take much pics but today we
fitted the rear strut brace
walbro pump which is tricky enough much harder than a starlet anyway lol
re sealed rocker cover cover gasket
fitted gear knob
sorted wideband gauge
sorted the brakes with new fluid etc

tomorrow should see all the covers ,inlet mani on ,possibly turbo kit ,front mount and rear arches chopped :)
getting there now and its about f**king time

Image

Image

Image

Image

18/10/11

set back today with the cam gears turns out i need ne ones as i opened mine and there f****d once opened so that solves that problem i suppose

couldnt do a lot of things due to this but managed to fit the turbo kit anyway get the wideband kit sorted and wired in and get the bung welded into the downpipe

cant do much more now until i get new cam gears :(

Image

Image

some of the covers going on :)



Image

Image

Image

on the look out for some nice purple stickers now to contrast the green

you can get them from america for about 1300 but you would probably get caught by customs

over here about 1700 and with extras can be over 2k easily :D
