    its painted, just have to do the chrome vinyl now, not sure if i wanna try the chrome, or leave it black and paint rear bumper the same. might try the chrome, if it fails, ill go black rear bumper.



    comparo in height vs stock valance, its only a little bit taller, but its the whole way around, not just the very front



    test fit on the car, needs adjustment, but will do that once i put other guards on

    got my megajolt ignition ecu, this will replace the dizzy, so i can adjust timing to suit the new cam and compression and such.

    this is the unit



    pretty small(with mounts added)



    guts shot, main board and hard rev limiter(dont wanna be blowing this thing up easily :p) the blank spot is for onboard map sensor, but im using tps instead



    and an end shot inside the case



    finally decided to buy some real filters for the carbs, this is the same mesh i was using, but in proper form. these guys fit snug over the lip of the trumpets, but ill be adding some safety wire to them just in case they get blown off, so they dont go running down the highway

    stainless top layer, stainless filter mesh in middle, stainless bottom layer



    went and tried 2 on when i looked for multimeter, theyre a bit close together, but i can trim a bit of the urethane off to relieve them a bit


    today we put the head and timing gear on

    MOTORS IN!!!!!!

    now i have to bolt up all the extra bits, run some wiring, clean up some not needed wiring, and should have it running tomorrow sometime.



    got my vacuum manifold bolted on yesterday, got hose for it today

    (good shot showing ports into head)



    and dummied up the carbs to check clearance of dipstick and other bits.




    and some basic info on the rebuild for ollycarbs :p

    10.5:1 pistons
    ireland engineering billet 292 cam
    cbr1100 bike carbs
    new just about everything inside the motor
    ishihara-johnson crank scraper
    bmw 2002 waterpump
    xtreme heavy duty clutch
    e30 5spd
    rx4'ish radiator w/ twin fans

    will be putting megajolt ecu on it when my edis stuff arrives, and pissing off the distributor. also have remote oil filter and oil cooler to put on when i get hose and fittings, and make an adaptor to replace the oil filter housing.

    also slowly setting up boosterless brakes, with wilwood powerlite calipers on each corner, scalloped rotors on the front, 2 piece rotors on the rear

    (ignore the rear rotors, turns out i bought the wrong ones, and cant get scalloped rears for the hats i have, waiting for payday so i can order new ones from jegs)



    radiator with fans and shroud



    testing dual master cylinder pedal box(still not finished) tight squeeze, damn rhd e21's



    autometer cluster to work with e30 gearbox(has no mech speedo drive, so i added y own elec sensor to the diff). will be replacing boost gauge with oil temp soon, since i dont know when/if i'll be going turbo(cluster was going to be for an sr20 conversion, damn m10 got the best of me though :p)





    thatll probably do for now, ive got heaps of other bits ill be doing on it, just need more moneys

    strips some weight off them without totally sacrificing diameter and pad surface area, its mostly about weight.

    and the big holes help with getting rid of the gas? that doesnt cause the pad to wear unevenly?

    as far as i know, theres really not much in the way of gas in pads anymore, not since they got rid of asbestos.

    shouldnt cause uneven wear, nothing ive seen anyone complain about anyway. i may end up with normal rotors on the front aswell, depends how these go.

    motors running now, just gotta sort out fuel gauge, speedo calibration, overflow bottle, get lower part of guards painted tomorrow and put them on, then bolt everything else up for driving times

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1VIBeJVekU





    coz of the e30 5spd swap in, with custom tailshaft, its moved the whole motor forward a bit. luckily i went the 2002 water pump, or the fan shroud wouldnt fit. ive had to cut the sheilding bits off the fan as it is, but its got a decent amount of clearance to the fan itself now. will see how it goes though!!

    cars running, might have to remove my fan shroud though, dont think the radiators getting enough airflow, its staying at thermostat temp roughly, but doesnt go down at all until cars off.

    sooo nice to drive, its awesome. mega pokey, but need this ecu setup so i can set timing properly.

    cheers guys, heres some more mods for your enjoyment :p

    this weekend was dedicated to getting my ecu running, which i did!!

    first things first, i scraped my bumper for the first time yesterday, forgot and reversed out a parking lot wrong, and it scraped backwards, and took a couple chunks out. no biggie





    wired the edis module up under glovebox, only place i could find that wasnt in the way, or in enginebay



    wired the ecu up and mounted it beside my cheap ass "headunit"



    ok, so the edis kit that i got for the ecu came with coil on plug, but they wont fit with the current brake system where it is(another reason on the list to piss it off :p)

    so, knowing i can use commodore coilpacks(the edis system is wasted spark, like vn-vs v6 commodores), i got to work making a pair of coils work.

    grabbed a module and cut the end coil area off, ripped the alu plate off the bottom, and gutted it.



    i worked out what pins id need(the ones that goto each coil) and removed the rest. soldered up my wires, and globbed a heap of hotglue on it to stop anything coming astray



    i drilled some holes, welded some nuts under the wheel arch and mounted the coils to the car, came out pretty good. just need to get some leads made up to suit(using an old set of commodore leads for now, 3 are good, ones mega long)



    final setup. will run it as is for a week, and get a spare dizzy housing modified to remove the dizzy hole. was hoping to remove the oil sensor hole aswell, but not enough money to get the remote filter stuff sorted before taking dizzy off. oh well, a bung will do fine.

    can spot the fan mount changes i did yesterday too, trialing it for now, but its raised low speed temps, and hasnt really changed higher speed temps. might go back to old shroud and a cooler thermostat.




    uploading some vids, will take a while though.

    idling and a few revs on the megajolt ecu(moreso to show the lack of leads on the dizzy :p)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzjhWR_KOac

    and a test drive. starts off a bit boring though. no high revs, still running in motor.

    ok, monday just gone, went to start her in the morning and nothing, ended up late for work(had to get a lift). got home, messed around with it, turns out i killed my circuit breaker(most likely that night, as it was working in the morning), and the crank sensor(note: dont go grinding any plastic off around the end of the sensor, not enough material, hits coil wires )

    so i ordered another sensor(from an aussie car, ford, slightly diff mounting points), and a bigger battery, small one just wasnt cutting it with new ignition system, and bypassed circuit breaker(for now, ordering new one monday)). swapped the wires on the sensor and she fired up without hesitation today.

    new battery(moved it to above axle, instead of behind it this time). just gotta clean up the area where the old box used to be. gotta get some cable protective stuff, and maybe reroute the cable somewhere else



    couple pics from a drive today, here

    picked up a replacement muffler today, coz the old one finally decided to shat itself on the way to work, its 90% broken around the back of it, and the mount that the last person put on was on the tailpipe, so it has broken from weight. got a couple new mounts to mount it properly tomorrow.



    bye by dizzy, got the spare housing plugged and welded, so will paint that and put it on tomorrow, and that nice big chunk of alloy sitting beside it, well... thats for something else

    hey!!!
    still awesome work there!!!

    i re-start mine last sunday and i ride it all day now!

    I hope you don't speak about that previously but do you work on the engine mounts? i wanted to put some stiffer one to replace the stock dead one but i can't find something great for E21, some guys use E30 m10 mounts but it looks not working for one side...
