Finally received the Samco Xtreme boost hoses (they are fantastic and MUCH stronger/lighter than the std range). I mocked up the piping and decided where I would put the temp sensor.....




Will take that one and the dump valve pipe away to get the bosses TIG'ed on and get the pipes back in.

Discovered a rather annoying electrical issue yesterday...
1. it seems that some things are getting voltage despite the Cartek isolator being 'off'
2. When pulling the main beam stalk, the lights light VERY slowly and all hell breaks loose with other electrics. Could be the battery is low/shot

Getting fed up with electrical gremlins to the point where I'm SERIOUSLY considering ripping out ALL the std wiring and getting it done to motorsport standard by my local auto elec guru's. It isn't all that dear and would stop me from wanting to pour petrol on the car and light it

OTHER than that, all is good and coming on nicely..

So, finally got around to taking the pipes round to local alloy welding dude...

Air temp sensor on hot side......




BOV on cold side.....




Didn't have time tonight to plumb it so I will do that tomorrow along with some wiring!!

Looking good. What hard pipes are they that you are using?

Nothing special, just some readily available 90mm aluminium pipe from Autosiliconehoses.

Along with some Samco Xtreme hoses....

Who needs £250+ worth of HKS/Greddy pipes when this lot does the same???

Took delivery of a trigger wheel setup courtesy of Andy at AMT....




Couldn't wait to get it on so got stuck in....



Just need to get the rest of it sorted out now!!!


Did some wiring at the weekend too...This was my view of the world at 12:30 on sat afternoon....



Will this wiring nightmare never end I ask myself!!! (and yes I was lying in the passengers footwell with my head stuck up inside the dash panel!!!)

Been busy removing rad/intercooler etc for install of Ross damper and trigger kit....



Also been rewiring my fuel pump relays and switches as the original setup didnt allow for ECU control. Been humming and hawing about a water/meth kit (Coolingmist)....I'm thinking that it'd probably be best to install it now and have car mapped on good old Tesco99 WITH a water/meth mix. Liking the whole idea of it so watch this space...

Other than that theres not much else been going on....most of my garage time recently has been spent preparing the X5 and Megane for their MOT's.. Now I can concentrate on GTR again

Been busy getting on with some things.....

Have the balancer, trigger and pickup all on...


Unfortunately it looks like the original power steering belt is now too short so had to order another, shorter one. Used Simply Bearings who have a HUGE range at good prices. Shame Ross don't bother to let you know this in advance!

Also cracked on with fitting the lovely Deutch AS connector for the lambda.....




Its a LOT smaller than I thought it would be but sexy nonetheless!!! Got some shrink boots and Raychem 22AWG Spec-55 wire as well as I had to make up some tails for the connector....the lambda wire was a good bit thicker than the terminals would accomodate. I have it on very good authority that this is kosher in respect of currents etc so I'll go with it...


Next problem that has sprung up is in the cooling department!! With the balancer and dry sump mandrel attached there is NO WAY the original viscous fan assembly will be able to rotate freely so it looks like I will now need electric fans. Had a look around and have, kind of, decided on a kit from Summit Racing.....



The handy thing about these is that they come with a shroud which, happily, exactly fits the core of my rad. I'll have to cut out a small bit between the fans for the dry sump mandrel but that's a small price to pay IMHO.

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting a bit dimmer again I reckon!!.....

Yet more (painfully slow) progress......

On the PAS belt situation, I had measured what I thought to be an appropriate size of belt at 950mm. Turns out its STILL too long so I then ordered a 925mm 4-rib belt which fits perfectly. ...This one HERE which at around £12 delivered aint bad value. Just a bit of info should folks want some easy to find belts!!!

With the belt sorted I turned my attention to the fan. Decided against the twin fan setup I mulled over before and ordered a Pacet 13" Profan (PF1311) for just over £100 delivered. I will use 1 mounted on the offside of the rad, driven by the ECU and see how I get on. Should I need a second (which I think unlikely) then it will fit in easily on the nearside.

Still arsing about with wiring but at least THIS bit of the project is near an end....

No problem!!
Just so theres no misunderstanding, I am using the Ross MJ 'Race' damper with underdriven PAS. I suspect the dampers with std size PAS pulleys will be fine with the original size.

Pic of all of it together...



Note how little space there is between rad and end of dry sump drive (around 30mm!!!).

Well...had a bit if a setback with the electric fan....

Ordered the Pacet fan as I mentioned above but after around a month of waiting got in touch with the supplier. Long story short, I got a refund but was then back at square one in the fan choice. What was worse was that it seems that Pacet have gone out of business.
Ended up ordering a Kenlowe from Demon Tweeks which should be here imminently which I will fit ASAP.

Also ordered a set of ID1000 injectors which is symbolic in that it signifies the last MUST BUY item this side of the ECU. Now all available funds can go towards it.

Be interested to hear your thoughts on the Kenlowe. Currently eyeing up a pair of these babies - http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...9112/overview/

Used Kenlowe years ago on both my MKII Escort rally cars without drama. I cant see why the 14" fan I bought wouldn't do the job.

I HAD looked at the whole range from Summit and had pretty much decided on a twin setup from Derale.....after having a long hard re-think about my cooling requirements I decided that I should be well served by a 14" single. If I have got it wrong then I can easily fit another 14" on the other side....no biggie!!

I think the Summit stuff is really good and have bought a good few things from them without issue. Even with import duty added into the equation, their prices are still VERY competitive.

So, fitting the fan turned out to be a drama......surprise, surprise! Every job seems to be a nightmare at the moment....

Turns out I had a bit of a brain fart with the fan. The one I had ordered previously was a tapered design with it being 35mm at the edge and increasing to 60-odd mm at the centre. The NEW fan I ordered, the Kenlowe one, turns out to be around 60-odd mm right across its diameter. this meant that there was NO WAY that it could be accommodated behind the radiator which was where I wanted it. On the plus side, with a little fettling, it JUST fits in front beside the oil cooler!!..





rather tight but they both fit. The fan is touching the rad so the spill is reduced.

Just need to secure the top of the fan (which I'm in the process of making brackets up for) and the oil cooler and I can get it all connected and refilled with water. Then I have the joy of wiring it all up!!

Missed the courier today so I shall pick up my injectors tomorrow too. If I'm feeling motivated I'll have both jobs done!!

TT
