    The updates have been a bit slow due to holidays/easter etc but I'm slowly getting her back together, all the door/window rubbers have been replaced,new dash layout, boot carpet etc..the head has been cleaned up as well.

    Well the head ports are larger than the new manifold (aussiespeed) so it looks like the manifold is off to get machined!!

    Did a bit of research on the aussiespeeds..they are "meant" to be smaller on the manifold side apparently..

    I was going to say that but did not want to cut across what you were doing. When I dealt with Aussiespeed their recommendation is don't touch the size as it messes with the flow speed and they have specifically designed their manifolds and tested them with this in mind. I have left mine as it came from Aussiespeed, and it delivers a much more even fuel spread across the cylinders than any of the other manifolds I have used.

    So progress has been slow and I've replaced/sorted a few things that i hadn't planned to do but these rebuilds have a tendency to blow out..I hope to have it all finished by september (birthday), just need to wire in the dash/finish interior and get it on the Dyno..10891953_10153610859092366_475822834606346806_n.jpg1779972_10153610942652366_3879151482248567431_n.jpg10410578_10153626240312366_2470402658559738693_n.jpg

    OK so project TE (part 1) has wrapped up.
    So the result is that I had a few teething problems with the car after finishing mainly timing,clutch,hurst shifter, linkages (was an auto c4) etc etc but overall its come together nicely.
    Its still missing a little when the secondaries dump fuel in so i do need to get it dyno'd and sorted but when its on power band its
    perfect. its awesome..it just screams now when the throttle is wide open and keeps going to about 6000rpm.
    I may have to change that cam tho as it kicks it at about 3200-3500rpm, it was an auto with a stall converter but now a manual so power does seem to come on a bit later than i would like. (crow 14650)
    Whilst i am happy with the power i am getting together a block etc to Turbo.
    I have attached a few pics for reference but for now am happy to cruise around Brisbane and our car club meets etc whilst I'm
    building the turbo motor.
    Cheers.
