    My first Car.......Ep91 Glanza called Scarlet

    Finally got the old girl running, few issues with the water lines. Had to take a drill to open them up a few mm, but it's all running now. Moved her from the front garden where she was basically stuck till the grass dried out a bit. Nice spring clean, who doesnt like a snow foam pic might de-chav the rear end of the car, although I'm still undecided. Annoyingly the headlamps need another cut with the mop and might attempt to lacquer them this time to stop them going yellow I'm relatively happy with the car. As I'm still a new driver shes plenty powerful enough for me now, although a local lad has just bought a cheap glanza and potentially getting a free 4EFTE block from him. So may drop that off at the machine shop and start building an epic high revving 4E for the future Yet to take her up the road on the new setup, never heard an external wastegate before so I'm rushing all my uni work so I can MOT the old girl and rag the balls off her lol

    My first Car.......Ep91 Glanza called Scarlet

    Update time, semester finished at Uni and I quit my job (bunch of assholes) so now I have ~2 weeks off till uni starts up again. Made a large order general servicing parts with ID Workz. All the gaskets needed, calliper rebuild kits, Walbro 255, some fresh Miller's CRX oil for the rather tired gearbox. And set about getting stuck in on Scarlet With the top mounted turbo, you have to rotate the core of the turbo so the oil drain is at the bottom. Not a big job, just a pain. All done though All bolted up in place finally now, all genuine gaskets used (yes my bank account has taken a bloody good beating, almost £2k this winter on Scarlet, scary once you start adding it up) Braided oil and water lines ran Oil return and the brace put on Lucked out on the civic rad, managed to rotate the top hose so it fitted without being crippled. And the bottom hose just misses the down pipe. Went to see Funk Motorsport at Autosport show, ended up getting some goodies. Heat blanket for the hot side And some of their gold heat reflective wrap (not cheap!!!!) As I wanted to start in the heat management of the car before we start screwing big power into it. Heat wrapped the upper intercooler pipe, not the prettiest but it should make a difference to the inlet air temperatures Purchased a genuine Walbro 255 fuel pump, dads melted a piston using a fake Walbro before so it had to be genuine for Scarlet. Fyi doing a fuel pump on these cars is so fucking easy. Longest thing was pulling out the seats I think haha I'm hoping to have the thing running Sunday, gotta work out what I'm going to do with the hot side intercooler piping, cutting it apart seems the easiest way atm. I bought myself a Xmas present. AEM failsafe x series wideband, the daddy of AEM widebands. Set me back a few pennies, but long term goals is I'm going to use the wideband for closed loop fueling and self learn on the ME221

    So thought I'd mock up the turbo kit, I was concerned that the down pipe wouldn't clear the bottom rad hose, it's got a civic rad but I've no idea which one as the it clears Just gotta get the actuator off, wastegate welded up and the clock the turbo for the oil and water lines

    Had a few hours spare this morning, ended up reading the whole thread in 1 hit. Kudos to you Nick, the first picture to what you've ended up with is some transformation. Hope I see the car sometime in 2019, she's a beauty

    It's Christmas though lol, could've probably had it all on by now tbh. But i decided to drag the Cavalier out of storage and give that a clean Glanza abandoned in the naughty corner for all the issues its given, I even kick it as I walk pass lol. I'll give it some love when it's capable of pulling itself off the wet and muddy grass

    Been speaking with the man himself Sacha, sorted out a new turbo kit as it really needed an external wastegate as the boost cut was pretty horrendous. I quite like the CT9 turbo, nice and quick spooling so decided that was staying, went for something different though.....top mount setup in stainless steel. Mounted to a genuine Tial 38mm wastegate on a vband. Have braided oil and water lines made too, as well as the the oil return pipe in stainless steel. Honestly this kit is exceptional quality, it's almost criminal to put heat through it and make it change colour lol

    As I'm a poor student , will be ordering the EP top mount CT9 manifold combo, genuine Tial 38mm external wastegate and a walboro 255 pump next week. Potentially if a P&P ecu comes up cheap enough I'll chuck that on as well, and run 1bar safely but if not 0.8 it is on the standard ecu

    "Lsd" how can u tell

    I know with my OEM LSD, it needs load to lock up. So wheels turned, dump clutch coming out of junction it'll leave a 1 wheel peel. But load up the car first, get it crawling and then do the same it'll spin both wheels

    Small update. I'm back at uni, cars currently layed up at my dad's under its cover now. I made it to a local show the week before I left, she's boost cutting like an absolute bitch now it's slightly cooler tho. So much that I had to adjust the actuator when I got to the show! Still pulled away from 2 VXR's and my grandads evo tho She certainly attracted attention, despite being surrounded by rather expensive classic Ford's! Little bit on the old man's evo, to our surprise it won Best Car Of Show. A lot of hard work paid off, spent my childhood cleaning and helping build engines for this car. Definitely part of the family, even has its own room in the house lol. Now the bad news. Scarlet needs A bit of work before the next MOT, boot floor is rotten and passenger side CV joints are completely knackered are the main issues. I've got a plan, some won't like it. I'm going to flat floor the boot, cut the complete wheel well out the boot and replace with a sheet of aluminium painted white Cheers, Jack

    Looking sweet mate. You'll notice the difference with the roll bar for sure, I had mine off for a day and it just felt weird, almost as if the back of the car wasn't connected to the front

    Much better pic of how she sits now, doesn't look too bad a car now. Tried some wheel wax on the wheels, you know you're anal with car cleaning when the wheels bead To think this was it 2 months ago, nothing but elbow grease I'm heading back to uni in a few weeks time, Scarlet will be taken off the road then. Might order a cheeky forged engine package to stick under the bed over winter tho.......

    My first Car.......Ep91 Glanza called Scarlet

    Did a few niggly bits on the car this week, the black door surrounds were bugging me being faded and chipped. Pain the ass to do but satin blacked them back to how they should be. Helps dad trained as a panel beater many years ago lol. Decided to take the ol girl off the road for the winter, will just be covering it up on the front grass to keep away the salt. So took the opportunity to take pics of the evo and starlet together for the last time this year. We've booked a local show in a few weeks time but he'll be on VIP so won't be together unfornutaly. Looks so dwarfed against the Evo haha Next niggly little thing is the bumper fitment, absolutely doing my nut in every time I walked out to it. Its the huge great front mount someones put on it, the bumper is literally pressed into every edge of the cooler and pipework. And there's no movement at all in the pipes as they're touching the chassis legs! So bumper off, makes a good coffee table lol Much to everyone's hate, more of the bumper cut off and trimmed to fit the cooler and pipework. I'll get some pics of the fitment tomorrow, I'm only updating this now as I'm a student and midnight is best time of the day lol. Cars currently got the cam cover cover off and being prepped for some paint, thinking just wrinkle black with gold reflectove heat tape facing the manifold Quick spec list of what I've worked out is on the car. It got sold to me as, tatty bodywork nice steering wheel and stainless exhaust. And that was it, but when i first looked at it had way more than that. Engine Std 4efte (had sump off and they're definitely std rods unfornutaly) Zisco ramhorn manifold Zisco screamer elbow Meshed CT9 HKS adjustable actuator HKS intercooler kit (only guessing as its similar to the evo HKS pipework) Blitz Nur Spec full system Possibly Blitz ignition leads but not 100% Half size civic rad with slimline fan Gearbox OEM LSD box Uprated clutch (feels very grabby not quite 6 paddle like I've felt in the evo. Might just be me, I've only really driven a Clio diesel lol) Brakes Std discs front and rear Mintex pads front, std rear Suspension Tein springs Std dampers Cusco (??) Underbody braces, I'll take a pic when its next in the air Whiteline adjustable roll bars front and rear OEM 3 point rear strut brace Adjustable panhard rod Interior Genuine Bride drivers seat Full 98 spec interior KODE suede wheel Genuine broadway mirror Genuine HKS boost gauge Exterior Genuine Borbet RS 15x6.5 ET35 (I think) 195/50 Toyo T1R (not a fan have to say) OEM front splitter Its still running in KM's just ticked over to 180,000km earlier actually!! Not sure if the 112mph limiter has been removed. Don't really take it that high anyway tbh, but there is a chance its got a P&P ECU it just feels too quick haha.

    Good choice, best suspension for the money. Honestly the ride quality is excellent, went in an evo with Meister R's and was blown away
