got a few jobs done and dusted. the engine and gear box has been cleaned and painted, cambelt and water pump done, fly wheel skimmed and stage 4 clutch fitted. Also had a few brackets and bits powder coated, might have the engine back in tomorrow. Has any had any experience with the skunk2 ultra intake manifolds on here?

The donor car had what I thought was a stage 4 but I think it might of been a stage 3 because the new clutch is a different design. It might be a little ott but if I ever go for more power it should be up for the job.

I wanted to get the engine back in today but the new sub frame bolts I ordered wasn't right. But there is a few rust scabs that I'm going to get sorted and with the engine out it'll be easier. 

 

Put the subframe collars in today, ordered what I'm hoping will be the correct subframe bolts and some polly bush antiroll bar bushes. 

 

Had a little issue with the oem fuel rail where it wouldn't sit flush with the inlet but some little rubber bushes sorted that out.

cheers pal, I'm really happy with the work the powder coaters do only issue is it's a 2 week turn around! Where are you getting your new subframe bolts from out of interest? 

 

the two main bushes in the lower arms have been changed already I'm not sure on the others. They're what I removed from the donor car, most of the bushes had been changed on that.

started tidying up a few rust scabs, I'm not looking forward to what I'll find at the back of the car, it's looking pretty scabby! fingers crossed it's solid. once it's all cleaned back and treated it'll be undersealed.

I got these off ebay but they haven't been fitted yet.  By the sounds of @DeLaSoul 's experience they'll need modifying to fit the deck properly.

yeah I had found them, I've messaged to see if they have any for the aerodeck but I've not heard back. I might end up ordering these. but the sills will have to be made, fun and games!

Under the car you can use patch panels and fabricate your own bits fairly easily. I can't weld but a friend took care of the rust on the underside of mine and a hole in the front wheel arch inner after I made the patch panels. It'll all be good in the end mate

Well I'm hoping to get the welding done in the first week of August with the help of my mate. fingers crossed we can get it done in a day or two! 

 

I've decided to get a s300 ecu so I've ordered a MAC boost solenoid ready for that along with some uprated engine mounts. 

 

I've started to clean up the tank before that goes back on. Its only the welding holding things up really. once that's the rest can be put back together. :lol:

welding is done and the fuel tank back in. Now to find the missing water pipes and replace a broken fuel line, along with putting all the suspension back on. What a job this turned in to!
