not bad, i just checked the piston to valve clearance and i need to get the pistons valve relieved, at least on the inlet side. i spoke to the painter friday and he still hadnt done anything yet. i still dont know if the turbo will fit under the bonnet and need to find an au that i can pull the manifold off to dummy build, i will prob go see paul at forward auto salvage and see if i can do it on one of his. he's not bad like that. its already been nearly a year since it has seen bitumen and prob another 6 months of build time left. sux paying rego on a car not on the road. this would have to be the most expensive cab out there!!!
so how long before yours is turbo and on the street?

Who knows mate. It all depends on when Nick figures out the cam timing and is happy enough with its output to let me take it home.

At a guess it will be turbo about 3 weeks after I get it back. It will be an easy install. Everything is a bolt on job except for a dump pipe and cooler piping which might take half a day.

Sounds like your car is coming along nicely. I cant wait to see it finished. Its gonna fly.

are you running a factory computer? if so you could engineer yours fairly easily!!! i was looking into it for a while and the only way any of the engineers would pass it was to use all factory stuff. i got pulled over in my ef and ended up having to na it. might be worth looking into!!!

Nah it was too much effort to use a factory computer. No one could give me a straight answer on how to do it without using all the BA security stuff.

An aftermarket ECU was a lot more simple to install to get the engine running.

If I was to do something similar and get it engineered I would use a 2JZ.

I got it to wheelspin a little without a proper tune ages ago. :)

Dunno if he has made any further progress. havent spoken to Nick in a while. Last I heard was that the pump was playing up.

Further to the pump issue, the pump has died so I asked Nick to replace the dodgy low pressure in tank pump and the now dead inline pump with a single in tank pump. He pulled out the low pressure pump and the fuel pump cradle had been hacked up to fit whatever pump they used and the tank was full of dirt. :(

I took another cradle in yesterday morning and they had the tank out for cleaning at lunchtime. Nick is hoping to have the car all sorted by next weekend before he closes shop for a month over Christmas.

Regardless, Im bringing the car home next weekend to fit the turbo gear, swap out the interior with the ED fairmont stuff in my shed and swap the suspension over to koni reds and pedders springs.

It will go back on the dyno with boost in early Jan.

I didnt end up bringing it home.

The weather was too crap to work on it at my house. My garage got flooded with the heavy rain :(

The new fuel pump and a turbo fuel pressure reg have been fitted, the car now has a 2.5 inch exhaust on it that I bought for $50 and Nick is fine tuning his cam mod. Nick has been working on it over the xmas break and the cam gears have to come off again and be played with a bit more.

We both decided not to turbo it until it was making 140-150rwkw NA like it should.

Ive got all of the parts now so it should only take a day or 2 to get it all on there and make piping up.

Atomic are the only aftermarket ones that I know of and they are due to be released into production in Feb.

Nick has modified them so that they are locked in 1 postion and when the phasers are earthed the oil flow moves them to another position. They need to be pulled apart to adjust so its a time consuming process.

If you take the cam gears off and pull them apart you can see how they move. It might be easier to just mod them so they dont move at all and whack them back on and adjust them until they work good.

I think atomic is making them like a regular adjustable cam sprocket though.
