So its been a very very long time since last update.

The last time I was boring you guys with an update was when I blew up my 1.5 motor, was sad but things have changed:

So we started by dropping out the old motor and gearbox (check the dirty bumper ha ha ha)







And out it came



One empty engine bay



So cleaned up the engine bay and then started to clean my "new" second hand gearbox. Having same ratios as my old box but with a shorter final drive of 3.72 vs 3.55 would help acceleration. Oil was caked on thick..

Before





After some cleaning


Nice and shiny housing





Swopped my sump over to the new block so gave it a thorough cleaning. Could see myself ha ha ha





So gave the motor some loving, nice very dark green high heat spray



New motor and new box happily married



New setup almost in



All bolted up at last



To be continued

So got the car back together, new meth controller wired in etc and was ready for the dyno.

In the end at 0.8bar boost my little 1.8 8v ran 153wkw 313nm. Seems like the stock valve springs don't like more then that and pump up the hydraulic lifters, so time for and upgrade.





Had some problems with my old bushes in the linkages so popped over to Goldwagen and picked up some poly ones. What a difference!



As the motor setup stands now, not perfect but does the job. Still needs work



Then we had some fun on may 2nd. Some action shots with it on semis around a gokart track

Thanks guys much appreciated!

Have had some gearbox issues so no 1/4mile times yet. Need to swop out the valve springs for stiffer ones so I can up the boost. Funny enough its still the same turbo I've had since the 1.3 turbo.

Will be using the power steering rack without the pump to get a better turning ratio soon. Lock to lock is 4 turns currently, new rack is about 2.7 turns. So car should be easier to drive now
