I'd go for full multi coil as oposed to wasted spark... and you've got the crank angle sensor sitting there waiting :) 6 basic bosche coils would do the job well. Do you have to use independant modules or does the EMS have them inbuilt?

Real mixture. EDXR6, AU engine, EF XR6 T5, Yes coil packs are being used...Individual...Either coil on plug or like Gen lll's small sparl plug lead...I'll take pics as well..It will be assembled on bench then hopefully fitted as whole unit...Hopefully NO MORE OIL LEAKS !!!

Chris,

Can you add some details into the doco regarding front and rear wheel sizings. What does it all mean, what effect does bigger/smaller have, etc..

Its something which continues to baffle me :)

Nice thread! Very informative, and packed with the stuff that makes this forum great! Good work.

Very tempting...me opens wallet..... damn. Me looks @ my torana...damn, i need to finish that project off. It's going to be a turbo 6cyl when it's done. :D

I hope that by the time the torry is done, if i still have my ford, someone is producing a rising rate lpg regulator for lpg injection. So i can turbo the Eb. :D

Cheers

ToranaGuy

Cost up until now... Um, I havnt realy done much to it lately, other than getting it engineers cert for the turbo set up ( which it passed with flying colours :D ), wasted a good 500 on crappy dyno tunes in various shops, a new dizzy, ignition module, fuel pump... so another 500 or so there... made up a 5in cold air intake pipe, that cost a wopping $25... oh and the Wolfs hand controller died, new one cost $270. Also made up some heat shielding over the turbo and mounted the batter on the other side of the eng bay...

Here's the cold air pipe, $25 from bunnings... Ive finished the wheel arches off with EF inner guards which cover up everything for a nice stock look

Heres the turbo/manifold/wategate while I was making it up ( note the very skanky welding prior to grinding it up and painting :oops: )
