Thread: Delivery of bits

  1. #1

    Default Delivery of bits

    So my Order arrived finally after a two week wait , still bits and pieces missing and some other parts to finalise




    Just need to order supertech valves and helix clutch really
    Inlet manifold need making up after I get it all water jet cut ( @ Washington water jet )
    Drop it in , Cnc bored , decked , head flowed and rebuilt with all the cat cam , supertech bits and get bottom end stuff statically/ dynamically balanced and built
    Now you know why I have bare floor
    Engine being built by Andy @ hiflow heads, I would ask senior but think he's a bit busy
    Not get a lot done now till the other 2 cars get sold ( free up some cash)

    Once I drop the engine in to Andy then about a week for them to build it , then fit engine / box and alter the front suspension to suit the kit
    Then seniors for manifold fabrication , dta fitment loom and mapping
    So next year I think before all my efforts bear fruit
    Think my plan at he moment is get the kit fitted , cage and seats , leave the VTS engine in so it's mobile
    Then do the transplant later on once I have everything , do as much as I can whilst it's got the 1.6 in

    Hmmm yes but there's always a possibility of me selling that other gt if I need more funds or I buy the drenth dog kit

    They're manic busy after both having holidays then the dyno broke so that's not helped.
    I'm away this weekend so fingers crossed should be ready for next weekend.
