they line up fine the issue is the height of the ports differs between VE and DE, notching the bolt holes all I have to do is lift the manifold up when I tighten the nuts and it all lines up fine Smile

Soooo the biggest thing Ive ever undertaken on my own car.

Monday

began mooching round collecting parts ordered a release bearing, bought some bits n bobs.

This was also delivered Pivot Voltage Stabiliser and Earthing Kit







Tuesday

Collected release bearing and some more bits n bobs, then set about stripping the car.

Front end removed to get in the garage



Work space for the week







Draining fluids



Stripping the bay




Corblar arrived




Crane in place



dash hes ginger





And we are down



On the dolly




Removed the 1 piece shaft for an LSD drivers shaft that bolts to the block




In order to fit this I had to remove a few things



and this heavy bounder



With the starter removed I took the opportunity to strip it down and clean it out, every one should do this with a clutch change










no pictures of it back together but it looks brand new inside now, cleaned it all out with petrol and packed it full of grease.

Wednesday

began sorting out the exhaust

Take one hanger bracket ground back



licked with some paint




Then hammerited



this is how I'm helped



a cat



with the engine on the dolly I pulled the gearbox off and put my JWT flywheel and GSpec clutch on



I had also changed the PS pump and fitted a new sandwich plate to allow me to run an oil cooler, I modified the plate to take my gauges aswell.

In the bay I rubbed down a few areas and changed the Steering rack bushes for poly ones.

after umming and ahhing over removing the ABS I broken that off for next year and we got the engine back in



this time on all 4 poly mounts

Thursday

Just tidying up loose ends, had a package from Dale resulting in



Custom brackets cause I'm smart



Refitted the manifold with a new decat from shagwah, got the cooler mounted in place




Friday



Few things that have annoyed me I took the time to fix

the little pockets under the scuttle panel that water happily sits in, Ive drilled two drain holes either side, these were sprayed over with stonechip to prevent rust.




I cranked the car over a few times with the HT leads and plugs pulled till the oil pressure light went out to prime the cooler and it fired up first time Smile

The cooler has given me almost 3/4 litre extra capacity of oil which is a huge bonus Smile

This was brand new



almost complete, green wheels are off now for the winter.



and back down with the bumper all fitted up nice and snug



cheeky cooler



I took it out and I'm happy to report it feels very quick, I did have a moment of no lobes.... the cause was the RSM not being powered on, checked back through the wiring and the earth cable had been pulled from the loom, most likely from being pulled through the firewall.

All in all a hell of a week sweating my tits off but it feels good now Ive done it, mods added weight saved things future proofed and lots of improvements Smile
