  1. Thanks Sam Made a start putting it back together and got some more pictures
  2. Thanks charlie, It was £240 for a full overhaul and a little extra to port the wastegate. Well worth doing in my opinion though. Been keeping an eye on your thread, That paintjob is looking great, look forward to seeing it all back together .
  3. Decided to take my ct9 off over christmas to be sent off to midland turbo for a refurb. I believe its the original turbo so wanted to get it refreshed for peace of mind before upping the boost. I painted the turbo water lines in a heat proof black while they were off. Recieved it back this week, really pleased with the work. Its had a full refresh including new seals, all mating surfaces machined flat and a really good cleanup inside and outside. Also got them to port the wastegate out a bit to try and stop some of the boost creep I was having. Would definetly recommend them to anyo
  4. Thanks bud, yeah im aware of that however wont be doing any drilling. Just going to get the fittings welded ontop of the existing holes on the rocker.
  5. Fitted some new headlight bulbs to the car at the weekend. So much brighter now, a good improvement over the ones that were in there. Side lights Dipped beam Ive got some time off work over christmas so started doing some jobs on the car. I wanted to change the fuel injector seals as they looked perished and worn, so removed the injectors from the fuel rail and swapped the seals out for some fresh ones. I used a little bit of silicone grease on the new o rings to prevent them snagging. I fitted my new dizzy cap and rotor arm. I
  6. Hi Welton, I found it easier to remove the manifold and turbo together and separate them off the car. You might just want some offset ring spanners to remove the manifold to head nuts. Also you will probably need to remove the radiator for more room to work
  7. I've seen that Hurley race engineering offer a clean and flow test service Claymore 👍.
  8. Looks great this, nice work . Has the wastegate been ported at all or is it standard size? Be interested to see how it does on the dyno at td.
  9. Thanks buddy yeah sure is, missing driving it already but just not worth it with the winter road conditons. Hopefully be able to get some jobs done over winter ready for next year anyway .
  10. Haven't updated this in a little while, but taken the car off the road for winter now. Ideally need to get myself a garage space to keep it away from the elements but its tucked up on the driveway for now. Still I've had the chance to get a couple of small jobs done on the car recently. I wanted to remove the remaining part of the ac system and the two ugly pipes that are visible in the engine bay, so removed the glovebox and pulled out the ac condenser from inside the heater box. Was a bit fiddly but easily done, also picked up an non ac starlet grommit for the firewall . Very muck
  11. Looks awesome Claymore, super clean. Keep it coming .
  12. Yeah, these are listed as discontinued on amayama now too. Sad times, was hoping to pick a fresh pair up for mine .
  13. Good work Claymore, really tidy job of reinstalling the rocker cover baffle. Might have to do similar with mine at some point, thinking about removing the pcv valve and having some AN fittings welded on for a catch tank setup. Cars looking great, wheels suit it nicely
  14. Yeah I saw this last night, be interesting to see what they do with it. I believe Marty and Moog confirmed in the comments that's its a 4efte engine from a turbo starlet.
  15. Thanks Claymore yeah will keep an eye on it and turn it down slightly if needed. Feels great now though, pulls much more aggressively
