    yeah nearly everything is done, hopefully have it back on monday, was a cracked head gasket. So now fitted with mls gaskets and uprated bolts, stage 2 clutch, new stainless steel UEL headers as the old one had a crack causing a blowing sound, fully decatted, remap to about 380HP.

    So it's been a busy couple of weeks put a new engine in the Scoob and had an MOT with my fingers and everything else crossed ๐Ÿ˜…. Here's a few pics. Added some nice bits and bobs aerocathes, rad cap, forged header tank. But sadly need to take the gearbox out looks like I caught the rear main seal so slight oil leak. But she's coming along slowly.

    Actually drove it for the first time in a couple of weeks! Finally sorted all the little leaks in the cooling system and itโ€™s running beautifully. Perfect day for a little spin!

    Pulled the front knuckle assembly out ready for new wheel bearings and hubs, ABS bolts snapped both sides and a blackend finger but their out! So might as well do the ball joints, trackrod ends, drop links and new brake backing plates as well. Fortunes spent but still smiling.

    Although at my level of power or type of usage, I don't really need to go "parallel" . I've over thought and engineered most of the car , so why not the fuel lines too. The oe fuel system runs a "series" set up , this means cylinder number 3 is the last in line to get fuel . a parallel fuel rail conversion allows the fuel to flow into the end of each "rail" and return out of the other end , so no particular injector is last in line to get fuel anymore. A few pics of me trying to work out which lugs to remove off the inlet, once the oe rails are gone and which way to flow and return the fuel lines.

    New dei wrapped custom engine loom should be here this week from jtinovations . Got new thermal inlet manifold spacer "O" rings ,icv and throttle body gasket on their way. I had to use a tighter 90ยฐ banjo fitting to clear the clocked coldside of the turbo and although the general opinion is that it won't restrict flow, I decided to buy another "racingline " banjo fitting for other bank rail to insure the flow is the same. So that's on it's way too . I've been running the 565cc nissmo injectors since the engine had been run in (46k ago) so seeing as the rest of the fuel system is being renewed, I've sent the injectors off to Clive attowe tuining to get cleaned / flow matched . Had to admit defeat with the trailing arms and lateral links bushes ,as it's taking far to long to remove the old bushes with the tools I have to hand .So I decided to just get the inlet manifold, injector caps and cusco H brace powdercoated for now and leave the rear end for another time. Dropped the stuff off monday afternoon and it was done by Friday ๐Ÿ˜Ž can't fault "Suffolk stove enamelers" for the job they've done for me , will definitely be using them again ๐Ÿ˜Š Hopefully I'll grab some new bolts for the inlet manifold and be able to start putting her back together at the weekend ๐Ÿคž

    Managed to convince the better half she wanted a day out on Dartmoor... gave me a good excuse for a good spirited drive. She mustโ€™ve enjoyed it too though, I even got her to take a half decent picture for me.

    Picked up my reversed inlet manifold, injector caps and cusco H brace from the powder coaters ๐Ÿ˜Š Only gave them to "Suffolk stove enamelers" on Monday, 4 day turn around and made a lovely job of them ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I've turned a few 5 speeds into 4 speeds ,always been 3rd gear too ๐Ÿ™„ If ยฃ1.5k for a 6 speed is too much to spend atm ,you could fit a later ty54 or hawk 5 speed .as these have stronger casings and will generally run 360hp ( maybe a bit more) . Google your current ty52#### gearbox code to find out the final drive ratio. Then find a ty54 or 6 speed with the same ratio , that way you can keep your rear diff assembly and only change the box . You will have to swap the early mechanical speed sensor and reverse /neutral switch wiring to the new box but clutch ,fly,starter,driveshafts ECT are all compatable from ty52 to ty54 or 6 speed ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Got the scoob fixed (non categorised ) still gotta go to court about the injury settlement though ๐Ÿ™„ Unfortunately I had to switch insurance companies as they wanted over ยฃ1.5k for both scoobs with a non fault claim ,even though I'd been with them for nearly a decade . I ended up insured through a classic car company for the v1sti and the v7 sti ,non fault incident , all mods declared, agreed value , recovery ect for ยฃ870 Which is about ยฃ200 more than I was paying just for the v1sti , the year before .

    Try Luke at importcarparts.co.uk, they do near enough everyting for scoobs and most parts are OE but much cheaper than main stealer and fast delivery times aswell ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

    Gave it a quick jet wash at the garage then set out trying to find somewhere to get some nice pics. Took a wrong turn and ended up back at home again so the drive will have to do ๐Ÿ˜‚. Here she is complete with new black wheels fitted last week. Now im trying to decide whether to tint the rear windows and/or debadge the boot... ๐Ÿค”

    Rain stopped play for a bit today , so I utilised the trusty kitchen table too strip the inlet and prep it for shot blasting prior to powdercoating. Marked up the unused inlet lugs and removed them , masked up machined faces and wound old bolts in the threaded holes to keep them clean . Just gotta remove the old bushes from the trailing arms and lateral links, then hopefully drop everything off at the powder coaters one evening during the week. Getting a bit fed up of taking pics of this "long term" fuel system upgrade now ๐Ÿ™„ but I do feel like I'm finally getting somewhere at last ๐Ÿ˜Š... even if there was nothing really wrong with the rails in the first place at my current hp and it's still all in bits in the shed atm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคช

    Welcome! With regards your oil changes, if youโ€™re in a good habit of doing it that often anyway, youโ€™re best to stick to it! I tend to use Millers, Opie Oils have a club discount if you get it through them ๐Ÿ‘

    Managed a 140 mile round trip faultlessly this morning, so I thought Iโ€™d treat her to a quick was this afternoon. The paint on the drivers door was looking pretty flat, almost like somebody had left a load of t-cut on it in the sun... So I had a go at it with some paint renovator then a finer polish, then over the top with a wax. While I wonโ€™t profess to being the worldโ€™s greatest detailer, I can say it now looks a lot more presentable from 20 yards. Iโ€™ll probably just get a replacement panel at some point in the future though.

    Dunno about that gambit ,engine's done over 40k since I built it but the bays getting some tlc now ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ross , I do like to do as much as possible myself but the fuel lab fpr made up lines and v3 /v4 modified rails came up cheap from a friend of mine . He had them made up by a professional company and although I like a challenge, cutting stainless steel overbraid lines ain't my favourite job . So I bought them off him and some billet phase 1 rails off cdf ,as the v3/v4 rails don't fit my phase 1 inlet ๐Ÿ™„. I agree Sam, cylinder 3 is normally the weak link, due to being last in the fuel feed and tucked up at the back of the bay next to the up pipe and turbo (hottest cylinder) .

    Replaced the horrible budget tyres that were on it with some Goodyear Eagle F1s. They came on a set of standard wheels but in black, looks much better and feels a lot nicer to drive now. Forgot to get a picture though ๐Ÿ™„. Also discovered a wheel but with no thread left in it so Iโ€™ve ordered a new stud and nut, gives me something to do next weekend!

    Bought a "Cam style" stud extractor to try to avoid having to drill it out but it wouldn't budge, even with my 1/2" breaker bar ๐Ÿคฌ So old skool drill and 're tap ftw , guess I'd better get some better quality bolts for refitting the inlet ๐Ÿ™„
