  1. Does anyone use lower temp thermostat? The stock one is 82deg which seems a little high considering engines get pretty hot. There is a 75 and 68deg ones, would 68 be too low? Anyone have some experience with different thermostats? Sent from my SM-J710F using Tapatalk
  2. Do you know what it actually does? Sent from my SM-J710F using Tapatalk
  3. Bottom undersealed. Subframe on and all Aluminium parts sandblastes. Thanks to Lenard for quickly finding me a set of Coilovers. Also can anyone tell me what this thing is on the intake Manifold,? I think one of the pipes from blower was connected to it. Do I need it or can I get rid of it? Sent from my SM-J710F using Tapatalk
  4. Also would these spark plugs do or should I go colder? http://www.ebay.com/itm/271557009702 Sent from my SM-J710F using Tapatalk
  5. Rear half sandblasted and primed gonna move onto front half next week hopefully. Can anyone tell me about injectors? I'm thinking leave primaries stock and get 2000cc for secondaries? Low impedance? Or has anyone got other recommendations? http://www.ebay.com/itm/370743380335 Sent from my SM-J710F using Tapatalk
  6. Pretty big update this time got the Engine assembled, next I'll be working on the Shell. Gonna sandblast the rust, underseal the car hopefully get subframes and running gear back on then spray Engine bay and start fitting Engine in so she can move on her own.

  7. Another little update. I've recieved the stage 4 XTD clutch. Complete kit with light flywheel and counterweight also got the subframes back from sandblasting and galvanizing. Successfully drilled out extra holes in the stationary gear bearings and thanks to Lenard for the rotor bearings, I think I've got everything I need now to assemble the engine. Just need to get bearings pressed in first. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks yeah I'll try my best to keep the engine as tidy as possible and have only the essentials under the hood might see some of it then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Got the engine sprayed :-) Also got the eccentric shaft back from polishing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks for reply. Them 2 photos I posted are actually eBay turbos. I contacted seller and was told they come balanced with 2 year warranty and the brand is Kebo. I've read through some of the sellers feedback and one of the customers mentions he uses that turbo on track car and its holding out fine. Also I haven't found anything bad about them online which leads me to believe people who buy them are busy out there enjoying them... https://www.ebay.com/itm/272356067152 And this is what I was recommended by Owens development crowd in uk for €2000 https://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbobygarrett/turbochargers/gtx4294r Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Can someone please recommend which to go for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Recieved a load of goodies by post today all I need now are 2 rotor bearings and engine can be assembled. Finished sandblasting the rest of the engine and washed everything, will apply some paint tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Installed the electric heater, it's 12v 400w, heats up to 200deg. I've yet to put it into the car and put jump leads to it just to test it to see if it actually works. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The kit I'm getting has the seals but dosent have the springs. I'll ask him to give me springs too then. Thanks for the tip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Also would anyone have a spare spring for oil scraper ring it's the bigger one. One is after disappearing on me... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
