I also removed the butterflies from the Intake manifold should flow a little better. 

And made up a plug and play resistor box for the low impedance injectors.

Also using a GM bulkhead mounted map sensor so wired that into a plug so can just plug in.

Will do the same with Injector's so can just got swap between the 560s and stock.

Going to use a p28 that I've socketed. Used the same last time and it's fine. 

Suppose it's a little basic no safety features other than overboost. But does the job just fine.

BWR manifold isn't ps compatible which is a shame. So started making a custom pump bracket that clears the manifold. Need a bit of slim lining and tarting up but should be functional.

A dual core radiator sounds the business to me,  should be more than man enough for the job.

 

You must be both excited and nervous after building your first full engine ever.

You're educating me as you go ..... who said "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" applause.gif1

Yeah I am more nervous tbh. Gonna be the biggest anti climax ever if it's no good. And I will have a meltdown. No way I can do it again. Been a real stress with work life and family life and trying to do our first house up as it was an absolute crap hole.

Did a bit this afternoon. Mate popped over. Used the extra set of hands to get the engine off the stand and in the car.

Fitted a competition clutch flywheel and stage 4 clutch. 

Need to Get that red cover off and everything plumbed in. Not far off the moment of truth now.

Yeah really good. Space out the back and lots of parking on the front too.

House was a real mess but ticked all the boxes otherwise.

Boring job done tonight. Trying to make it so when it comes to installing turbo setup everything is just plug and play. So made 8 tails for the injectors. 4 for stock injectors and 4 for the bigger injectors.

Tomorrow morning should have time to do the loom side.

A lot of effort going into this kink, as Gel said, it’s an education reading through this build!

Again struggling for time. But she's all back together. Shafts in gear linkage in. Exhaust is hooked up.  By the weekend I should know if she runs.IMG_20190311_212739.jpg.8238a203468b2aec6ad5aed974c3e9d3.jpg
