Hello everyone did not take long for me to get a Glanza back after breaking it in may this year, only lasted 3 months and have one back again.
So here is a new build thread
Here is a link to my old build thread if you want to see what I did to my old glanza, I did do miles more than what is listed on the old one, I forged it ect made 295bhp but sold it due to bad paint work.
Cusco cage (dash avoided)
Harness bar 6 pot ksport calipers
Blitz nurspec exhaust
Zilla bucket seats
BC racing coil overs
HEL abs delete kit
Civic half rad
Other bits and bobs ect..
Ok so work I have done so far...
Removed WEPR topmount TD04 kit sold for funds
Pre fitted the new top mount
Pulled the engine and sold the engine, already picked up a super low mileage 5e engine around 30k miles ready for forging.
Removed and sold rear bumper with OEM lip and got a jam bumper to replace it that it currently in paint.
Livesports spoiler in paint.
Started cleaning engine bay up.
oh and spent a shit ton of cash to fund the build as you can see in these images
Car when I got it
Pre fitted the new top mount prior to engine been pulled.
5E engine picked up for a good mate of mine phil lowery
Rear bumper removed due to selling glanza bumper and rear lip needs a clean will get around to that before undersealing the rear bumper metal work.
After the engine was pulled I gave the bay a long good clean, still work to be done don't have a before photo but it was fully grafted and almost black before looks so much cleaner now , will be sanding and covering the looms up ect ready to paint and freshen up the bay ready for the forged lump to be put in.
Here are some of the parts that I have started collecting in my room may have a problem haha... engine should be in the machine shop in a week or 2.
I know this will more than likely be mentioned but don't diss the maxspeeding rods ;) used them on my last build to 300bhp, they are rated to 225+bhp per cylinder im aiming for 400 so I can be a Guinee pig for the community and see if they cope with bigger BHP builds. Keep an eye out on updates!
Also got a RW developments oil catch can like on my old build love these things great presence in the engine bay!
Future plans for the coming months...
1) In December I have booked my cylinder head to be fully ported and polished by Liam at LC porting cant wait for that.. after that head will be getting TD uprated valve springs which I have already purchased not going down the cam route yet unless a decent set pop up on one of the for sale pages.
2) Engine will be getting built by my local engine builders that built my engine last time (genesis engine's in hull) did a great job and no issues at all with the other forged build.
3) Once Ive done the long and boring 1500 miles run in and multiple oil changes I will be taking the car to fiske to get a standalone ECU fitted and have a coil on plug conversion done due to the dizzy maxing out around 360bhp usually.
Other than that in the mean time just going to buy other parts like injectors, LSD, high flow fuel rail, and anything else I fancy haha!
Don't see many people post on here anymore so enjoy a more frequent build thread to read when I get uploading on here.
