I won't lie it was more work than we thought but once we started we couldn't stop and ended up cleaningand painting everything but 1 of my favourite things to do mainly cause its cheap and is always satisfying at the end just requires lots.of elbow grease

few more updates

finally got the front end rebuilt and back on its wheels loving the drop from the tein springs just about right IMO not slammed but not high like it was before
Its still got to settle so may drop a few mm extra yet











also plucked up the balls to remove the airbag and old wheel....dont know what i was worried about it didnt explode   s:bounce: :bounce: s:bounce:  very happy with the new wheel yet to drive it yet though due to the rear needing lowering this weekend



the final up date is the gauges, we were going to make a whole plate to fit where the stereo went and cup holders ect but we have decided to use the stereo holder, the previous owner had fitted a single din adaptor from the double din i imagin which has a little cubby hole below, so we;re going to keep this make a perspex plate to fit where the setero went and have the 3 gauges there oil temp pressure and water temp,

hopefully it will look almost stock, doing this will allow us to retain all the stock covers and cup holders etc

Cheers mate we're well happy with the progress,

Well in the pic above that's the stereo cage, so we are just going to make a rectangular perspex.plate with 3 52mm holes in, secure.the plate in the stereo opening and fit the ggauges, then it will all go back together with all the original trim and look almost stock, I will post more pics once we start building it, we just have to cnc the perspex plate this/next week

No worries, sometimes it's more satisfying making your own if you have the time!
I was going to put gauges in the same position, but decided to rip out the whole lot!

Some impressive work!

What bushes did you use?

I was thinking about doing the same but didn't really get around to it, maybe next year.

Car is looking awesome with the new ride height, really suits the car and wheels.

Love the stance Tommy looks ace!

Hi, just reading this thread, very impressed!

Is there a thread that lists exactly what you did to the engine to get 178bhp? I would be interested to know. I can see lots of nice shiny bits from MWR in the pictures.....

Thanks

Cheers mate, can't wait to fit the gauges now

Although we don't run wheel spacers on our car just wide wheels with a et20 offset, but a similar look can be achieved with spacers  s:) :) s:)

Thanks buddy

There isn't a thread for the engine in the early days I didn't really update the build thread with all the details was so much going.on with the car I could barely keep up  s:) :) s:)

Well the engine spec is as follows

Completely rebuilt and every thing replaced with oem or better parts  

Con rods balanced
12:1 wIseco pistons 79.5mm
Acl race bearings
3 angle valves
Crower stage 2 cams
Some mild head work, slightly decked for more compression
PPE manifold
CHE exhaust and test pipe
DTA S60 PRO standalone ECU rev limit raised by 500rpm (with a good map makes all the difference)
Denso iridium plugs
K and N panel filter

I.think that's it, it's all kinda of a blur now done far to much to this car

Cheers mate it does drive beautifully, good power/torque all the way through the rev range really comes into its own on a track

Any idea what sort of torque she is making tommy?
I know it won't have been cheap but it must have the beating of a 2zz.
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Hi buddy it made around 145 to 150ft/lb from 3500 all the way up to the soft limit at 7250

Which is a bit more than a 2 zz which is 130ft/lb But like you say it wasn't to cheap but we did alot of it our selves which kept the cost down

i just prefer Pre facelift headlights that the only reason i want to swap with someone , well we could always meet up and do the swap there and then, wont take long to remove and fit headlights and your in Sheffield which aint a million miles away from chester should be easy enough to arrange

few small updates

the gauges are wired up and fitted not the best job some of the wire lengths could of been a bit longer   s:oops: :oops: s:oops:  but did a reasonable job soldered everything together and heat shrink  it all,

thanks to meeerrk   s:bowdown: :bowdown: s:bowdown:  with his help we used the original wiring harness for the stereo and used the same adaptor he used shown in his build thread and it all worked rather well, wired all the senders up used a sandwich plate for the oil temp and pressure and the normal water temp sender in the pressurised water pipe,

we used 2 Stack gauges for the oil pressure and temp and a TIM for the water temp

because we have removed the soft top, we ran the sender wires through the fire wall under rear carpet then under the rear bins and under the cover for the handbrake and gear shifter cables ect and popped them out behind the stereo, would never know they were there   s:D :D s:D  when all the trim was back on you would never know it was all done by 2 amatures and our first experience doing anything electronic   s:D :D s:D
