Slight change of plans…

due to my lack of research I’ve found out id1050x injectiors won’t work with my emanage so looks like rx7 injectors will be on the cards 

Get rid of ya emanage and go for a better ecu emanage are shit go for something like heltech link etc

I also put an order in today for the following parts which I want to get fitted before putting my engine back in 

powerflex black anti lift kit
lower arms

lower arm ball joints 

arb droplinks

front wheel bearings 

inner track rods & ends 

hoping to get everything underneath the car new to match everything else

Had a quick hour on G after work, removed the wings just to make it a bit easier to clean everything up and I also plan on condensing down the loom in them areas as it’s very messy and maybe relocating the fuse box inside the car.

had a scrub up in the bay and arches was very grimey under the wings as you can see, getting a bit of prep work done ready for some paint, will also under seal the arches, trying to get this done soon as my suspension parts are slowly turning up so would like it all painted whilst it bare.

all of the suspension parts have turned up now so removed the new bushes off the wishbones and replaced with the anti lift kit ones

So fitted some more parts today, forgot to order steering rack gaitors so hopefully getting some more today.

also dropped my hubs off last night to get the wheel bearings fitted so they will be going on over the weekend too.

also prepped my anti roll bar up, gave it a metallic silver base coat then coated with candy apple red followed by 2k gloss laquer, came out quite well

So update time…

suspension parts are all now back together, even though I’ve got to take the hubs back off to remove the backplates as I’ve just ordered the Willwood 4 pots which should be a nice addition! 


i also got the HEL abs delete kit fitted which was a bit of a pain with no instructions but worked it out eventually! Also fitted the new poly bush engine mounts 


the Kaaz diff has now arrived just still unsure whether to use my gearbox or now at the repair I found on it may be worst than I think I’ll try and get some photos to show… 

also ordered some bronze Grid V’s and some ns2r’s which arrived today! 

still waiting on quite a few parts but I’ll keep updated as much as I can

The ORC clutch & flywheel arrived from Japan really pleased with that looks a great bit of kit 


Turbo arrived from midnite turbos TD04 hybrid billet wheel Greddy 9 blade shaft


Willwood brakes are here ready to go on 


WEPR manifold is a real bit of kit looks lovely


Test fitted the wheels and may have to figure something out with the arches or get some wider ones it’s very tight 


Think that’s it for the moment just time to put everything together and get the gearbox sorted

Little update

got sick of looking at the state of the old crank pulley 


ordered a fensport one and really happy with it build quality looks good 


also sent my gearbox off to be repaired, I’m not sure what hillbilly done the last repair but oh my goodness 🤣


pretty safe to say it won’t be staying like that
