    Need help. Thermostat housing

    Yes you'll notice above in the second pick the plug is different on the sensor, on that model instead of the two separate sensors they went to one sensor that does both. You can butcher the plugs to make them both fit the one sensor or alternatively if you can get an off-cut of a loom you can re-wire it to work with just the one sensor. It will work without it, I'm pretty sure its just the temp wire for the dash however obviously you won't be able to keep an eye on the temps. I was sure they still had the additional port but this looks like it might not be the case.

    Does the other housing have all the sensors in already? The hole isn't in exactly the same position but should fit in somewhere.

    The pin for the wire is actually an additional sensor. In some models the temp for the dash is part of a 3 pin sensor, you should be able to swap the sensor over to the other housing and it work
  4. Unsure right now on the colour in all honesty, I wasn't planning on going original and I still don't think I will... just can't decice on what colour instead.
  5. Bit of a long overdue update, things have been gradually progressing.. Shell finally made its way to paint... Block is back from the machine shop, and is finally being assembled along with the head... (notice the nice oil filter bracket holes on my 5e haha) I also picked up a bargain of a spoiler... £100! Will update as we progress, I hoped to have it running for christmas but thats now out the window! ah well.

    o2 sesor wire question.

    I'm pretty sure its white with a thick brown protective plastic over it from what I recall to protect it from the heat.
  10. Snall update, been working on the electrical side still, gauges are installed and loom is pretty much there now I also borrowed the team dynamics for my other car and put my spare BBS wheels on... I kinda like it...
  11. I’ll be running the 4e box as that’s what I’ve got with the competition clutch conversion flywheel to run the larger clutch disc

    Twin scroll TD05

    Billet wheels are lighter, I’ve always been under the impression they spool better, especially on a twin scroll. I’d be expecting it to be starting to come on boost around 4000rpm
  13. I'm expecting the gearbox to last all of about 24 seconds - I'm cryofreezing the box internals to strengthen them and I just need to pray basically. - Colour wise I've got something a bit special planned, wont be white.
  14. Do you know what pressure that was at? Ah well I've bought the springs now so may as well use them, even if I only run to 7500rpm least I don't need to worry about valve float.
  15. I know they don't like too due to the longer rods, I've seen people revving them to 7.5k but wasn't sure if this was limited by cams or valve springs, Id love to be able to rev it to 8k @Socks Don't suppose you know do you?
