I had a little road trip last week.



And I got myself a new motor off a member on here.

Spec is as follows..

1600 VTS lightened and balanced bottom end
Wossner High comp pistons
LAD motorsport head
Catcam 708's
Competition head bolts
Piper cam pulleys
Firdanza dual mass lightened flywheel
Helix 6 padle clutch
Alloy crank pulley
Jenvey ST 42mm throttlebodies
380cc Pico injectors
180 bend GMC inlet setup with airbox
KMS ECU
KMS wideband Lambda
KMS Ignition unit
Full engine loom+KMS loom

Rolling roaded at 175.6 BHP @ 7800 rpm
and 139.5 ft lb















Out with the old......



And in with the new....







I also tidied up where the cage meets up with the turrets.







As the original dash was cut to fit the bold in cage there were some gaps when
fitted around the weld in cage, nothing major but I was'nt happy with it so I got
another dash and cut it to suit.





And I got all that lot flocked too.

This does'nt need any introduction at this stage.





The lever for the Cup box was drilled at the wrong angle so I just cut the lever off the
bush and rewelded.

Before..



After..



Dash and shifter fitted..





Made up and fitted some new braided fuel lines.

Thanks for all the nice comments gents.

I am happy to report I got noise today

After 2 days of head scratching because I was getting no power to coil,pump,injectors,etc
I traced it to a broken ignition wire,fixed this and it fired up first time. I'll go to bed
happy tonight.

Great news! I had the same situation on an all steel a series engine I built a few years ago, got it all ready to fire and nothing. That turned out to be an ignition wire too, fired straight after that.

This one with a Wilwood bias valve bolted to it.

Coupla pics I had on the camera.

New battery cables made up.



And this is the back of a GTI fuse box with all the crap cut out. Nice and simple now.

This is awesome mate, proper by the book too! Lol at the handbrake comment....you fail an MOT without a mechanical handbrake right? And don't you need one for MSA approval?

Where did you buy the carbon door bar covers from mate they're lush! thanks.

I thought your car looked like a 106, but obviously it's a 306!!

Thanks for the comments Gents.

Lewis,the car is for stage rallies and sprints only so I dont need to do an MOT or NCT (National Car Test)
in Ireland as it wont be used on the road. It will be entered in a modified class so anything goes really.
We dont have the MSA over here, Its Motorsport Ireland goverened by the FIA.

I got the cage protectors from Galway Carbon. http://www.galwaycarbon.com/

Some FIA roll cage padding.





I had second thoughts about the polycarbonate front windows so reverted back
to electric windows with clear film on them.

This is where I mounted the switches...



A little trick to stop the end of your throttle/kill switch/extinguisher cable unraveling,
Just add some heat shrink



The old exhaust rubber trick...





OH YES..

Airbox is on the shelf, I'm not going to use it as I want to keep the bay clutter free
for easier fault finding/repairs (starter,throttle linkage,cable,injectors etc)

Can someone move this to Irish Members Cars please,where I should have put it the first day..

A nice heated windscreen.



First time to see daylight in almost 18 months, Brian and James brought it to get the screen fitted and
get it tracked, all went swimingly









When I got back I prepped the scuttle for paint, I had to do a lot of messing with the wiper motor and
brackets because the standard setup would not work with the cage coming out to the turrets.





Second thoughts won me over again and I decided to try fit the air box. It should be better for throttle
responce as the air will be in the box ready for when the butterflys open. With trumpets and filters the air
has to be sucked in through the filters when you nail the throttle.



I had to cut a piece out of the bottom corner to clear the peddle box and remake it.



I had to do the same around the strut brace,no pics of the work in progress.



An catch tank I had on the shelf, found it after I ordered one on ebay.



And all fitted.

These came last week.





Sandwich plate and senders fitted.



And all done..





Some S16 badges.





And ready to rock






I had this out last Friday for a Porsche VIP track day in Mondello to do some testing.
I got 3 laps in and the oil return pipe from the head to the sump came out of the head
and covered the bay in oil. I decided as the engine/exhaust/weather was so hot it was
a bad idea to continue as I would be asking for a fire.



You can decide who was passing who



Here is a video out doing some testing today, I have the laptop on the seat beside
me incase you wonder what the fook I am looking at.

Cheers mate. I can't believe how reasonably priced those gauges are! I'm going to do the same in mine! I'm totally sick of not being able to get the oil pressure and temp gauges working, so these would do the trick perfectly.

What do you think of the quality? and I'm guessing with that sandwich plate you're not running additional oil cooling?

How do you mean? Do you mean a gauge adapter plate like this then a oil cooler adapter plate in front of that? then filter.

They seem to be good quality, very much like the guages that came in the old Audi 80's
and Golf GTI's. At that money you cant go wrong. Sandwitch plate is very good quality.

I'm not running a cooler based on what Sandy said about it not needing one but after 3 laps
of the track it was red hot, I couldn't leave my hand on the engine for over a half hour after
coming in and the guage was at 120 (so was the kms screen on laptop before the cheap guage
squad come out)

I will be fitting a cooler before the next day out but I will have to loose one of my fans to make
room for it.

Has anyone fitted an oil cooler along with 2 fans?
