    Test fitting in the bay to check clearance etc.

    Don't worry the valve covers and plenum are getting painted later.

    Post painting, regasketing etc. Should of painted the balancer but oh well.
    Had recently done a major timing service on this motor.
    Also replaced the turbo oil lines, exhaust manifold gasket, new waste gates (old ones were leaking) plus some other things.

    Found some more photos of the ening assembly;

    Pre and post the cleaning of the smoo off the turbos.
    I ended up getting a parts washer for this worked a treat.



    Some nice shiny painted mounts betting fitted;

    ryzan Black Mesa? Fat chance...

    I ran into a similar tuning issue as you several years ago. After fitting new Nismo 740's, the engine ran fine when I retuned it to 500-600cc, but for the life of me couldn't get it to run properly at 740cc or anywhere near that. Turns out the injectors my friend had bought were fake/redrilled or something, only found this out after getting them flow tested where they performed around the 500cc mark.

    Ahh I had them flow tested and cleaned I think they were all good.
    Issue ended up being the timing 180* degrees out. Got it started!.

    Now to sort the idle - seems to die with any throttle, got the afr to 14.7~ but there is a bit of a hunt going on. Smoke tested it with zero leaks.
    Going to check the fuel pressure next, have a feeling I got the link settings for the fpcu wrong.

    Man I would assume that car has an aftermarket fuel pump and is not running the FPCU. If it's not then it really should with those turbos and injectors.

    I've checked, I am not sure exactly what is occuring with the FPCU, but it seems to have been bypassed and the pump is getting 12v. Next step is to check fuel pressure, lent my FPR to a mate so he could check the same thing. If fuel pressure is good, injectors need to come out to check their flow rate.
