    Did a bit of work to the race car today trying to remove a bit of the control stuff from the engine that I dont need.

    Removed and welded up the boost side feed pipe from the IAAC vale assembly and pulled the FIDC valve off. Dont have air con so dont need any of that crap.


    Had this pipe hanging out the balance tube so figured that would be a good place to put the MAP sensor. Fitted with a bit massaging had to expand the pipe just slightly and th Oring slid right in. Welded a flag on to the pipe so I could bolt it in place.


    Then ground off all the alloy bosses on the plenum. I reckon I took 500 grams off it.


    Will clean these up and get them power coated later this week.. :D

    Next move is to pull the engine out and clean off 3 years of crud from the block and the alloy parts. Make a new engine look NEW.


    Lastly bought a new toy.


    Borescope. I am pleased to say the bores and internals of the engine are still as new despite the long period sitting idle. $169 from deals direct.

    Has a little video screen and video out so you can record what it see's.
