Update : 16.04.17

We finally got the engine in and all wired up,all hoses connected up but had no luck starting it. Had a mate come round to have a look at it and he said the loom had seen better days and to get another one. With us originally wanting to go dispack,we then thought to go down the distributor route because parts are easier to find for them. Found a good condition loom uncut,replaced the exhaust cam to fit the distributor,got ourselves a coil and new maf sensor. Got it all changed over and wired up.. started up straight away. Then had a few teething problems so got the codes up,2 codes came up.. icv and tps. So we replaced the icv and are still waiting for the adjustable tps and new throttle body. Once fitted it should run a lot sweeter. Here's some pics of how we've been getting on.

Engine ready to go in



Loom tidied up



And fitted











Air box fitted



Had the ceseros refurbed





















Swapping the cam over









Maf sensor fitted



And how the cars sits now,just waiting for the new throttle body and tps

Thanks guys!

Once the engines running spot on,we'll start to concentrate on the body work and getting a GSi kit fitted to it. Still got Softstars to go on it,need to get spoiler and fuel cap painted too. And then obviously get log book sent off and getting the insurance,tax and MOT sorted.
