    Next plan of action is to strip the bottom end down get the head skimmed and have the head and block acid dipped to get it all clean, once the engines done it will be put to one side then I'm gona crack on and sort the chassis out hopefully have this all done in time for summer :-)

    Update time since my last post iv rebuilt the engine with acl race big end n main bearing, new standard piston rings, head skim, cometec steel head gasket, arp head studs, new timing chain, trust rocker arm stoppers and all other various seals n washers n filters

    The engines back in and running sweet fired up on the first click of the key which I was very happy with

    I then proceeded to strip out the interior

    [​IMG]

    And chipped off the sound proofing and gave the floor a few coats of hammerite also undersealed all the arches seals and chassis rails

    As it stands it has, je pistons, eagle rods, ACL big n main bearings, greddy rocker arm stoppers, cometec 1.1mm headgasket (the right one this time) arp head studs and a kinugawa td06 20g turbo with braided lines,

    I put it all together the weekend just past I'm running her in at the mo n keeping it under 4k untill the remap but already she feels so more responsive n wants to go, so I'm happy smiles all round lol
