  1. Hey guys, some more progress the past couple of days. Made a mount to support the air intake: welding probably isn't 'insta worthy' however, it's definitely stuck on there lol. Welded the intake temp sensor in the intake as well: I made this 'duct' for the inlet into the airbox too, designed it so it'll pickup the air pushing around the radiator, this shot is from the inside of the box, looking towards the radiator. Also managed to get the air/oil separators setup: Lastly a photo of the 1/4 turn Dzus fasteners for the airbox lid. I still need to get some foam for under the airbox lid and paint the airbox and intake black too. Thanks for reading guys 😊
  2. Thanks mate!! I think the black paint will 'hide' it a bit in the engine bay, won't look so in your face.
  3. A few photos from todays efforts guys. Made a start on the airbox: Made the lid, I still need to finish it off. Mount the Dzus 1/4 turn fastners on the lid, nutsert and bolt the sides and finish the duct from beside the radiator oh and of course, paint it black 😉 Although definitely made some progress today which is nice. A nice change from the wiring anyhow. Thanks for reading 😊
  4. There has been alot of time involved, as per any project car. Although definitely enjoyed the feedback! I'm really excited to fire it up too! Hopefully won't be too long now.
  5. Thanks very much mate! Thanks for looking. I appreciate the words even more 😁
  6. Hey guys, another update: Pretty much all the engine bay wiring is complete. I need to finish the airbox off and make the intake mounts before I terminate the air temp sensor. The DBW throttle body has been terminated, however not braided, want to double check it all works before braiding it. Painted the 'loom channel' yesterday too, in wrinkle black. Definitely makes it disappear. Thanks for reading guys 😊
  7. Milestone update guys! Cranked the car today, removed the coil packs and plugs, dumped the oil and put fresh oil in (Penrite 10/10ths 10w40) Wanted to prime the oiling system. So a few bursts on the starter motor. With some luck I might have the car running by the end of the week, no pressure 😊 20190915_143101.mp4
  8. Hey man, yep, sure can. Basically the mount where the sensor bolts to sat far too high, you see where the Tarrks setup, the sensor sits quiet low and pretty much in the centerline of the crank pulley. The Ross setup had the sensor sitting higher and subsequently towards the front of the car more, which caused fouling on the chassis rail. I couldn't really get any photos of what was happening due to access. However if you look closely on the photos I've put up of the Tarrks setup, you can actually see the mark the sensor mount left on the chassis rail. It isn't a fantastic photo, as it wasn't taken at eye level to the crank, however you can see that the mount is alot bulkier and sits up way higher than the Tarrks setup I believe when I did some investigation work that the mount which had been supplied as the 'FWD' mount kit was in fact the same as the RWD setup. This would work awesome in a RWD application, where you have alot more real estate and no chassis rails for miles lol.
  9. Hey guys, A few more updates, have been busy wiring. Only have the gearbox sensors, the starter solenoid (received terminals for that this afternoon) electric water pump controller and the fuel pump to go and the car will be ready to crank. Anyway, a few pictures: I have been trying to figure out a way to run the wiring across the rocker cover here, it always looks so messy in the OEM state. I've come up with this setup which should look alright once it's sprayed in wrinkle black, same as the rocker cover. Coil packs terminated Crank trigger, oil pressure sensor, oil temp sensor, knock sensor Starter solenoid wire and a voltage reference wire for the alternator That's all for now guys, as usual thanks again for reading
  10. Hey guys, another update: Unfortunately the Ross crank trigger setup for FWD and RWD ended up being the same which ended up causing the sensor mount to contact the chassis rail. It was going to be extremely hard to modify that setup, however I found the Tarrks kit and thought I'd take a punt on it. Pretty close! Modified the lower mount, where it bolts to the oil pump cover, much better: I've got the water pump all hosed up now too: I started to make a bit of a template for the airbox too: Going to finish on the wiring: Had to do some extensive rewiring in behind the dash as I removed the fuse/relay box on the drivers side, so anything that wasn't redundant had to be rerouted. This is the wiring atm, ready for testing. Once it's all tested and proven, it'll be braided and taped to the existing looms.
  11. Small update guys: I've reached the spaghetti stage of the build. In the process of wiring in the Haltech. Using bussed Deutsch plugs for the power supply to the injectors and the coil packs. I've mostly sussed out the Drive By Wire setup, it's reasonably straight forward to wire in too. Apart from that I've got a shitload of leftover inputs/outputs, which is to be expected with a 'basic' N/A build. However I'm going to run a separate loom with these in it, so they'll be easy to access if/when the time comes for a change or upgrade.
  12. Hey guys, Slow on the updates again as you can see... Anyway, I'm back. Have had a few up's and down's as expected with making custom items. The thermostatic oil filter bracket I made whilst the engine was out, was only a guesstimate. Unfortunately when I went to finish off the oil cooler lines, the 90 degree bends I was using fouled on the rocker cover, I managed to tweak it until there was clearance, however I wasn't completely happy with it. Sooo, I made a new one. Much more rigid than the previous design, it is yet to be painted: In between work and other commitments I began mocking up the intake components I had been piecing together, this is what I came up with: 6" OD bellmouth for the filter to mount on, down to 3.5" OD on the outlet, I continued the 3.5" for 130mm to a 3.5" - 3" aluminium reducer then to a 3" 60 degree mandrel bend. The finished product, fabricated by yours truely: As I was welding each part of the intake together, the wall thickness was different between each component, so I went ahead and ported each piece after it was welded. The finished product: As per usual guys, thanks for reading
  13. Hey guys, A bit of a milestone this weekend, the N14 has been off the road for 4 months now. Although I'm definitely honing in on it running soon! The front bar and passengers side guard are finally on for good, both guard liners have also been refitted. The car (apart from the bonnet) is back together... finally! A bit of a teaser pic of whats to come with the intake, hopefully the bends should be here this week. I have since removed the gearbox (I mocked the gearbox up to check clearance on everything else I have fitted) Torqued up my Xtreme 3.9kg flywheel tonight, clutch will go on tomorrow afternoon (Xtreme HD Organic...I'm non turbo, so make f**k all torque remember 😂😎) Thanks for reading
  14. Hey guys, just some more parts hoarding. This time for the intake: Plan is to use my 6" ID airfilter on the 3.5" ID - 6" OD bellmouth, then weld the 3.5" to 3" transition onto that, then go to a 3" 45° or 60° aluminum mandrel bend (unsure yet) then to the throttle body (which is 3" OD) Anyhow, here are a couple of the parts. As usual, thanks for reading 😁
  15. If there was ever someone who gets it, it's me man. I don't trust other shops either. However I think it's far more rewarding once the project is complete 😁
