    Not so rare 4efe-t starlet love

    Oh dear, please stop now. What have you even used for the sump, bathroom sealant?! You use a decent RTV silicone. Are you going to plastigauge the bearings? I can't imagine you are. Why don't you leave the engine building to us professionals?

    You drilled the sump while it was still bolted to the engine.....oh dear Anyway, the question is what is your budget? They are an easy engine to work on, I'd suggest take the engine out and do it properly, as the standard 4efe clutch won't hold the power anyway so you'll have to take the box out. I build performance and race engines. If you need any advice or help drop me a PM. That crank will be fine by the way with a fettle. Matthew

    AFR readings

    Are you sure? Is that gauge compatible with the wide band sensor you have bought? I think that's where your problem lies.

    AFR readings

    Are you sure you have bought a wide band gauge and not a narrow band?

    New! CT9 external waste gate adapter

    Seems a lot of hassle, you'd have to change the oil feed, return, water lines, downpipe, intake, i/c pipe etc etc Would just be better buying a manifold with a external wastegate exit already built in. Not only that but the turbo will sit really low down, did they even think about the oil return into the sump?

    Who the hell has mapped that? What wideband gauge and sensor have you used?

    Great advice you got

    Manifold

    Check his Facebook. Or ID-Workz sell them.

    Engine tapping

    Yes just select a shim that is suitable. Does it start ok? I find it strange that all of a sudden one valve has no clearance. As I said, worn valve or valve seat. Hope the piston isn't touching the valve...hence what the noise might be.

    Engine tapping

    Oh dear, inlet or exhaust? Was it just on one?

    Engine tapping

    Hard to diagnose a fault over a 5 second video. Is there no clearance at all?

    Engine tapping

    You don't need to remove the cams to change the shim. Pressure down on the edge of the bucket and remove the shim

    Engine tapping

    It gets closer the more the valve and valve seat wears. Did you check the clearance when the engine was cold?

    Manifold

    I bought a second hand CT9 wepr manifold the other week. It had cracked and the flange holes were 2.1-2.7mm smaller than the cylinder head, that's my only experience with them. I think they offer lifetime warranty now anyway, so maybe things have improved.
