Strangely, everyones been saying that past few days, justys been trooping it

Fuel system is now on the fuel cell and working really well, no leaks so far

Still got a brake leak though, i cant find it as everywhere is wet so cant see the leak, just keep topping it up for now

The day began intending to strip a drum, fix a brake cylinder and ended in this
Dropping all the exhaust
Releasing all the handbrake cables
Taking all brake pipes off
Dropping propshaft
Removing subframe
Removing fuel tank


One rear subframe, (diff, shafts, drums ect) dropped and belly fuel tank removed


New subrames being fitted and no brake fluid leaks so far!! It looks so much better without the tank underneath too
Although i do need to modify one bolt for the bottom arm as its spinning at the moment
Hopefully that should solve a few problems

A little more progress, slow with it being my daily though


Finally got a spare wheel in


Exhaust looks a load better, chequer plate covers up well

Diff mounts are now 'polybushed' tiger seal works great, also banged abit in the rear engine mount
My nasty knock is fixed too, turns out damper was loose, it had been clamped onto some grit by looks of it

Hopefully going to remove some of the sound deadening later

Retop plug cover, from this

Big spacers


Arch poke, need to modify and fit my arches now

your not wrong there mexican, red tops are multi point injection, however, running independant bike carbs will ive simular power gains to that of independant throtel bodies, but at a much smaller cost, plus this will remove any need for a mega expansive ecu, or at least the head ache of trying to join the wiring from and early 90's vauxhall engine to that of a japanes subaru car....... plus it will allso create some space (which this little beasty is desprate for) in the engine bay, hope that makes sense

Shrek thanks ever so much for taking time to teach me =] really appreciate it ... I didnt realise you could do that ... The more I talk to you the more I want a red top and the less I want a B series Honda engine ! lol

You might get similar top end, but usually the mid range and bottom end suffers vs throttle bodies, plus the general driveability and economy is worse.

i completley agree but this thing isnt being built as a daily....... might loose some bottom end torque but i know what tanks like, it wont be driven lghtley, usually screaming its tits of hi in the rev range Very Happy ha ha, any ways, its complete trial and error, there is no recorded build of this type ever being completed, so its a bit of a learning curve Wink

it's the midrange when you change gear you generally notice it.

I'd just bang a decent inlet manifold on it and keep the injection gear.
And buy some welding gas Shocked Laughing

Slight change of direction, after alot of thought i have decided to turbo the standard 1.3 8v, to see what happens and its a lot easier and quicker to do than the redtop,


Turbo airbox build


All welded up with nice blueing, no holes fingers crossed


Studs are in ready to hold boost i hope



All painted up!!!

Still allot to do but im hoping it will be done for pod,
Still need to sort turbo, oil feeds etc etc
Could be a big flop but hey ho the justy always lives on

Bit of a update

EGR system has been blanked off and thermostat removed for better cooling
Ive also fitted a oil-water cooler to try keep cool for USC


2nd radiator after oil cooler to attempt to lower temps


Intake and DV is on


Sump has oil return fitted


Rising rate fuel pressure regulator is fitted and standard one removed


Spoiler is on along witha few more stickers


Arch extensions are painted and fitted to cover wide track

Still lots to do before USC hopefully i can get a fuel pump sorted, fit turbo, fit intercooler-piping, door cards, raise bonnet, fit bonnet pins, wire in guages, wire up fan, test and setup turbo fueling
NO PRESSURE REALLY!!!

Manifold redesign, people say cast and steel cant be welded, seems to have worked here just hope it doesnt crack



Turbo fitted

Now to design a exhaust, off to steelie i go
