  1. Thanks! It’s mounted back in for good now
  2. Ready to go back in for good now! All the engine work is done, got the majority of parts vapour blasted or painted and all the old bolts re-zinc plated too Refitting with temporary cam cover so I don’t accidentally smash the new one to bits lol
  3. Have been trying to make some videos of the build too:
  4. Mostly boring stuff! Loom work, engine bay painting, new oil pump and timing chain on engine etc etc. Moving onto the brake kit next.. have to do some more work on the shafts also
  5. I would not bother. There is no evidence the ‘airflow’ is better, there is no plenum which a turbo engine likes and the runners are designed the way they are for an n/a engine to help with low end torque.
  6. Very few options for the autos. Probs easiest to get a Link or similar and fit it as a piggyback leaving the stock ecu to do the auto control
  7. Agreed that you can use the shield ground pin for that, but IMO you shouldn't be connecting any sensor grounds there. Hopefully Link have tied it into the PCB away from sensitive IC grounds and closer to power grounds but who knows. I probably over analyse but its good to have an understanding if you're really interested in it and reviewing/making your own decisions. Just because a couple of ECU manufactures do it a certain way, doesn't necessarily mean its correct. If you're interested and have spare time, i can recommend watching this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySuUZEjARPY Ri
  8. Yes I’m really not sure why they recommend doing it this way, as you’re putting shield noise onto a pin all the other sensors are connected too. All the big professional harness builders I’ve worked with who do stuff upto F1 level, put them to ECU/Power ground so I’ve always done it this way as I’ve had more consistent results. Just my experience so thought I’d point it out
  9. Just an FYI, on the knock you do not want to connect the shield and sensor ground together and then to the sensor ground pin. conductors to Knock input and sensor ground, the shield should then be terminated on its own one end only to a chassis/power ground
  10. Sorry, I can’t help I’m not a moderator / club owner. It was Rob B that used to be but not sure anymore
  11. Take the cluster out, look at the back and it shows all the PCB tracks so it’s pretty easy to work out
  12. So when you unlock the timing (by removing the bridge) your saying it doesn’t go to 0? If so that’s normal, most engines idle at 15-20 deg
