Right i originally bought the car with the intention to keep the C16xe in it and just modify it as i plodded along, i dont really have pictures of when i first got it but this was the earliest pic i had when i just fitted the mhw rear lights and just fitted the avo coilovers..

car still has the standard wheels on the rear and the new wheels that will be going on on the front, suspension is slammed at the back only for temp comedy resaons,


full stainless exhaust system was fitted from front to back including the manifold

after fitting the exhaust and wheels and the suspension to the height i was after it looked like this...


took it for a testdrive and with the stainless steel manifold being a 4 to 1 there was a couple of kink and bang noises from the manifold too the floor kinda wasnt the best of noise,

also going from a 2.0 to a 1.6 i kinda wasnt impressed with the power output and to get anymore power out of the 1.6 engine would cost silly money so i went searching for more power...

so the next step was.....

yup you guessed it! C16xe out you come, no pictures of this, but the engine was removed and the front of the car put up on axle stands and stripped it down,

next up was reinforcing the front end sooo... i got a helping hand from Stu-G

got him onto the welding so that was a days job tidying and welding,


too be continued!

after shopping around the usual forums, ebay, asda...

i finally found a engine i set my heart on,

set out on a 2 hour journey each way to pick up the engine, went in a 1.6 8v combo van there,
came back in a 3.6 24v turbo combo van

yup do the math, it is a C20let

got the engine back to mine


also managed to order a intercooler kit from TX Autosport a day or two before i picked the engine up and this arrived shortly after i picked the engine up.





whilst i was waiting for ordered bits to arrive so i could start fitting the engine into place, i decided to trial fit and mount up the intercooler so was something less to worry about onve engine was fitted,




i also gave my bonnet a quick paint as it was a bit rusty on the front aswell.

next up decided to tidy the engine up paint some bits and give some bits a clean ready for the engine to go straight in, the engine had already been fully rebuilt and cleaned up so was fairly tidy to start off,

taking parts off the get to bits to paint,

i then decided to paint the rocker cover and cam pully cover,

while rocker cover was off i decided to do the breather modification to it...



and while the cam pully cover was off i checked the timing belt and timing for peace of mind,



A BIG help again from Stu-G popped up and lent me his engine stand so no more working sitting on the floor... about bloody time

covers painted and also picked up and 3 in top hat to go with my intercooler kit as a lad around the corner from me had bits for sale



and now i have a engine stand and the engine was not on the floor anymore i decided to remove the sump as wanted to check out the sump baffle assembly that had been fitted from previous owner,

Next stage was to choose gearbox, was undecided at first whether to run a f20 or f28, finally after the humming and haring i decided to go for a f28, also the fact that there was one around the corner from mine for sale for a reasonable price i decided to pick that one up,



now i needed a potted flywheel and clutch to mount it to the engine, again Stu-G helped me out with this as he had both left from the stuff that he didnt get robbed,

also picked a dumpvalve off the same guy that sold me the gearbox so fitted this aswell,

flywheel clutch and gearbox mounted onto the engine, getting excited now as it is getting close to being fitted, still waiting for parts to arrive tho so i can mount it up

Parts finally arrived that i was waiting for, so set about fitting the small part...

didnt really get much pictures of this but part fitted

[img]http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/180994_10150101061902017_580242016_6455434_7839527_n.jpg[img]

i used the type 2 conversion mount kit and the f28 gearbox mount,





next fitted the lower arm tie spacers as the arms were in the way of the gearbox to seat proper,





also forgot to mention that i sourced a set of 2.0 shafts and hubs, hubs were fitted with the brakes

fitted the 2wd conversion plate to the f28 gearbox and then mounted up the drive shafts



and then straight onto fitting the gearlinkge, purchased this from lmf, so i could get 6th with this linkage i needed to cut a bar down on the rubber mount and re-weld at the exact angle which aint exactally easy,



i mounted this up onto the gearbox and then got Stu-g and his numble fingers to get on his arse under the car and set the gears up ( all gears now select spot on and chuffed )

another day,

sorted the intercooler into place also fitted a new smaller airfilter and tidyed up the wiring, mounted the wiring loom and ecu behind the drivers footwell kick panel so this now looks tidy and standard,





next up dragged Stu-G out again into the icy cold weather to sort my guages out as i useless with wiring,

boost guage, oil temp, oil pressure and air/fuel ratio are being fitted... heres stu's handy work...

firstly he stripped down the drivers side heater vent,


then stripped down the centre console ready to get to the wires and solder the wires up,



guages mounted up and wired in,

boost guage just needs the vacume pipe connecting up,



oil temp and pressure mounted into the heater vents,



then mounted all centre console back together again,


air/fuel mounted up and all back together,

update,
mounted up radiator into place, the rad is a TX Autosprt alloy rad, mounted it into place and plummed it up as much as i could, there is a couple of pipes that needed ordering to finish this off, might order another specific red pipe at same time to make things look a little better



decided to tidy up the wiring in the engine and fit my depos and 10k HID kit with Stu-G, i think we managed to get the wiring quite tidy and impressed!

managed to sort the problem we had with the oil temp and pressure guages, had a sandwich plate that wouldnt fit as the oil feed pipes too the turbo were in the way so couldnt get it into place, and the oil pressure switch wouldnt fit in place on its own either, so managed to get hold of a re-location pipe that will mount the oil pressure and temp sensors,

so thats been fitted and they now relocated


that is all for now...
