Got my coolant swirl tank back from evolution, nice quick custom service for the pot. Forgot about the coolant bung so had to cut mine own and get it welded in place. Then tapped it.



Ground more off the powersteering bracket, roughly measured up position. Still need to cut up the mounting plates and work out the heights of the pulleys in relation to each other so I can shim them up to match before welding.

Started wiring up the common ignition wires, can\'t go much further without starting the re-wire in the car.

I\'ve been trying my best to work out what I need for my fuses and relays for the rest of the car. Looking at a 5 module system that allows you to chose which modules are needed.

Not much of an update really. I want to sort out the coolant system and relocate the alternator first. The height of the alternator pulley is 1mm shorter than the powersteering so I\'m going to make a plate to shim up the assembly for welding to align them. Hopefully it will squeeze into the gap after welding.

Been labeling up all my bosch connectors in advance.



After getting messed about with the headlights I\'ve decide to have a go at rewiring the pop ups from scratch. Ordered the switch over relay and I\'ll do a test with the passenger side.

Been trying to keep the car in a running state until I really know where the coolant system is at !

Bit more on the project, Got my mounting plate through the post and got the shims and clamps for the alternator. Need to drill the setting plate and then get the brackets welded into place once its all setup.

Got another rather big parcel with the fuses, relays and power supply for the whole of the car. I\'m getting rid of all the original wiring as much as possible. I\'m amazed at how small it all is. The microrelays are tiny, even though I have 12 available ones for all the components. Had a really good service from Polevolt, can\'t reconmend them enough, everything is labeled up and turned up in very little time, top service.



Planned as much out on paper while I ordered the parts and I still need more stuff, I didn\'t think about the electric window controls, going for a more basic up/down switch in the dash due to no door cards.

There is plenty of stuff to get on with :D

Got my Aluminium Plate all lined up ready for the alternator brackets to be welded in place.



Trying to get the profile as low as possible due to the space available.

Decided to do something mechanical over the past weeks of re-wiring the car systems ( which is slowly getting there). Finally got the power-steering bracket welded up to take the alternator and cleaned up and painted. Done a test fit and it all looks very nice. Got a good 15mm clearance between the alternator and the chassis rail of the car without and modifications to the rail, so very happy. Just need a new belt (4PK990, I think).





Not too well today (man-flu) so will carry on tomorrow !

Been really busy with the front car loom, which includes all the lights (inc motors), indicators, horns, washer, wiper, alternator, starter.

Been a much bigger job (and loom) than expected !

Quick update. Got the ECU mounting plate sorted, wired the FJO injector driver to the ECU. Only the extreme version will run them without ballast resistors. The FJO is a proper bit of kit, made good use of it with the PFC.



Plate will fit in the passenger inner footwell, there is much more room when all the electrics are removed !

Spent some of today working out which wires go into the engine bay and inside the car. Tidied all the bundles to make the next bit easier.

Removed the water Pump housing from the engine. Its amazing how large the housing is compared to Edd\'s Electronic water pump pickup. Ordered up all the hose for the new water setup, will need to workout the pipe connectors for the Heater return and coolant feed to the turbo.

Its progressing, just not very quickly !

Got Secondary Fuel rail modified to take the fuel temp sensor in the week. Will get the rail re hard anodised once I happy with the layout and pull the engine out to clean the engine bay and paint the engine and gearbox.

Spent yesturday working out the coolant system and ordered some more parts. Should turn up in the week ready for next weekend.

Weather has been kind again today so I\'ve been working out all the cable lengths on the loom so I can add plugs indoors. Engine bay is looking way less cluttered than it has done.

Do you need a fuel temp sensor?? I don\'t know whether to run one or not?

When I increased the size of my injectors on the PFC I asked Pip the same question because the rail I designed didn\'t have one. He said it did need it because there is quite a bit of correction on fuel temp. I think you would tune to worst case if it wasn\'t there and could run ricer at cooler fuel temps.

Safer to have it and just run off the wideband on the ecu (pinched narrow band input off the wiring layout).

Got back from Pip\'s about an hour ago with my rebuilt 4.44 Diff.

Took a detour and went to Demon Tweeks for my Dash :D



Just stuck it on my 12v supply and installed the software on my PC.

Got some 8mm spark plug leads and ordered a MSD crimping block off amazon to crimp them properly.
