So as you can see from the list above the car has some parts.

so where am i at now you may ask, well i have just got to the point where the engine runs as it should, it is un tuned. It did have piston slap so I cleaned the pistons and head up and put a 0.40 gasket on.
Then i had the dreaded idle surge, stripped the inlet, cleaned the iacv. Got a new inlet manifold gasket, made a new tb gasket. Re calibrated the tps and she ticks over nicely at 8-900 rpm.

Iv taken the car out on a couple of drives going no higher then 3k rpm as its still on the stock engine tune when it had gt30 turbo. Anyways it runs fine.

so now i have a list of things to do before i can get a tune.
I would like to atleast get it down a track before the end of season.

Fab Exhaust
1000cc injectors
450 fuel pump
S300 ecu with 3 port boost solinoid
Fab charge piping
Fit af guage
Get the tacho to work

i think that is about it really.

anyways pictures is what you want right?.
So i forgot to mention, the previous setup was on a cast manifold running an ebay journal bearing gt30, the engine ate the exhaust impella casing the pitting of the Pistons and head.

only a couple of my images will upload as it say the files are too big.
