bit of a belated update, been very slack with this thing.
but it's pretty much the home stretch...

heres a couple of the engine bay

Have to sort out some intake piping (that filter sitting there is temporary).
Then book it in to get the Wolf V500 fitted and tuned.
After that just a lot of little tidy ups, fit gauges, and also get a new exhaust done for it.

Awesome work mate.
Engine bay looks great.
I like that tensioner set up. Does it mount to the blower bracket?
Are you running it MAFless with the wolf?

Cheers Jeff!
Tensioner mounts to the blower itself, hopefully it works well :lol:
And yeah, will be running MAFless.

Good to see this unicorn of a project actually see the light of day !

V500 should go nicely...surely you haven't considered a J3 chip - I hear they're doing great things to blown windsors ?

Heres another update for those who don't frequent boosted.
Car is now in the hands of EAS, got towed down yesterday.
So not too much longer now.

I missed this somehow :P
I thought about going twEECer at the start, but then knocked that idea on the head and settled with the Wolf.
I'd seen good results in other E-Series, Daves EL, and some weird bloke with a turbo 4L who reckoned the V500s were a bit of alright.
Plus who I had in mind to tune the car favours Wolfs.

I could have answered that tongue in cheek with a few subtle digs that would have got a giggle out of you, but my brain isn't on point today, sorry Steve :cry:
