I'm still searching :chill:

Minor update -

I had the shed on the rollers over the weekend

on the highest run she made 391bhp/394ftlb, peaking at 2.2 bar and holding 1.7 bar! slightly down on power from my tuners predicted figures from 2 odd years ago!

Graph's ( Ignore the printed 387, I'm not sure why he didnt print the 391 run....)

new graph

Image20140621_131732 by onslack, on Flickr

boost, afr plots and wheel power

Image20140621_131725 by onslack, on Flickr

old vs new power graphs from a few years back on my old T34 and greens

Image20140621_131715 by onslack, on Flickr

The engine is far from healthy tbh, its addiction to smoking is getting worse! so a rebuild is around the corner :thumbsup:

No more power, just a standard spec bottom end with a minor drop in compression and that's it :D

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

I'm sure the 2wd has a fairly low transmission loss, but cant quite remember what it exactly is

tbh it'll last a bit longer, it's not done bad at all for a quick budget build that alex threw together for me about 4yrs ago in his front room :thumbsup:

Been a while since I last updated my thread.

For those of you unfortunate enough to be on my facebook/instacunt accounts you'll already know that my saph is dead again.

Run down of the story it's been fine all year even after my core plug popping out and pissing all my coolant everywhere :banghead: :lol:

I did also leave my oil filler cap off which resulted in near on ALL oil going walkies down a dual carriage way while ripping a skybus a new one :lolz: ( i nearly " killed" sam in the process :thumbsup: :teehheee: )

Anyways I ordered a new oil filler cap, all was good!! luckily the engine seemed fine :look: :lol: , About 2 weeks after that it randomly started missing on start up for about 20-30 seconds

I at first thought it was my plugs, so gave them a clean.....this made very little difference :sigh: :lol:

Anywhooo....I drove it to a pistonheads meeet where it still missed on start up but cleared, no miss firing on boost etc either! but I was starting to lose water now :sigh: :banghead:

So bank holiday Monday this happened......I ripped shonky apart expecting to find a blown HG as plug no.3 was wet on cylinder 3 :whistle:

The head was removed in a few hours :dohhh: :(

Image20140825_122202 by onslack, on Flickr

The HG was fine, there was no damage or signs that it had blown at all...... soooo....onto options 2 and 3......cracked block or cracked head.....

Bores on cylinder 3 seemed perfectly fine... so onto the head....

Image20140825_121139 by onslack, on Flickr

nice crack was found in the combustion chamber of cylinder 3 :sigh: :banghead: :banghead: , alex aldo found some cracks on the valve seats! handy :lol:

So i'm in the process of not giving a fuck for a while :lol: , engine is coming out and a fresh one being built :thumbsup: , but first off I've got to get the head checked to see if it is repairable or not :thumbsup:

on the plus side I've bought a set of slim line fans, proper turbo damper ( no pics) and some carbon roof strips :halo:

Image20140817_145720 by onslack, on Flickr

Over and out until I decide to do something with the shed :lol:

It's been on the cards for a while :lol: ! I was hoping it would last a bit longer :hmm:

I'm more gutted that I cant use it as a wedding car this weekend or in the new year :(

I'm taking my time on this engine build :thumbsup: :D

Shame to see the car have these problems, but once a rebuild is done you'll hopefully have no major issues :)

]Sooooo after neglecting the saph for a few months I decided to pull my finger out and actually do some bits and pieces to it

1st up my cylinder head..... yeah that's scrap! sooooo I had to find another one, standard ones on ebay were going for £800 and were still of an unknown quantity :roll: , luckily i knew a man with a dog and after his cylinder head passing a few tests it was passed over to me :halo:

The head was last worked on by Karl Norris @ NMS! i needed to check with them that the head was going to be suitable for my spec, which luckily it was :D

Next on my list was to strip out my old bottom end as its being replaced with something a little better :wink:
