    Saw your car on Sunday though did not know who owned it. Looks good. Bring it to the "Tyre Kicking" on Sunday and we can have a good look at it.

    PS. Thought it would have to be someone with strong arms.

    How does a busted speedo stop you driving it? Use the tacho, it's proportional to speed. I shouldn't talk however, I haven't been able to make it to any tyre kicking days yet. Maybe next........

    when i was more of a novice i swapped the mi16 motor in, and at the time rushed it and didnt do it properly, hence no PAS.

    pugmonkey - im glad ive sorted it, it looked so stupid..

    peter - thats all well and good but havent wired up my tacho.. thats on my to do list. going to mod the instrument cluster.

    as promised some pictures of my air filter..excuse my wiring mess the tidy up will come when i sort out the tacho

    Running update:

    PAS relocation kit for the GTi6 engine has arrived, although i dont like the look of gutting the high pressure hose and using compression fittings..is it just me? Rebuilding an SI rack for fewer turns lock to lock...and i'd now have power steering!

    Fitted new bronze shift bushes at the lever and genuine plastic bushes up front. Didnt fit my bakerbm short shift kit i'll leave that for another day. Feels much tighter already.

    Went out to get a welder to weld up some little holes in the floor and repair my drivers seat, using some donor seats. Got a 5 door subframe sent from the UK as well to give me some headroom. Long story short i didnt return with a welder but some sound deadening and subs for my other car :/ as you do..

    Waiting for my gti6 shortened inlet manifold to arrive, and I need to move the washer bottle and get a small battery.

    More to come but i'll do this work before i spend another months salary on upgrades..might even drive it for a while!

    It doesn't cost much for pirtek to swage robust connectors on.
    A swivel is always handy to have in line too.

    On the subject of CAI (or water sucker-uperer) A while back I observed my car's air temps from a sensor in the plenum.
    Regardless of whether the car ran with just a rag over the throttle body or a similar cai as you have, the air in the plenum got hot in traffic and cold at speed. My car has a fairly open engine bay so that might account for some of the lack of difference, but frankly I was surprised how little difference location made.
    Nothing you do to the location of the air filter will stop the heat sink into the inlet manifold at low revs/low airflow and high engine temp.
    Driving fast at WOT seemed to be the only way to cool things down.

    man ive been slack! if you hadnt spotted i had fitted the PAS then 2 days later the top pinion blew out! suspect its either too much pressure in the system (drilled a small 1mm vent hole might plumb this off somewhere), wrong fluid (had used ATF now using dex II just the repco steering fluid) or i hadnt peened it properly, in which i proceeded to peen it around the entire circumference of the damn thing!

    no mean to hijack thread, but how would one go about doing this? Just undo the ram bolt and disconnect it from that big stud?

    I was always curious to see how the drive would be non-PAS with the same ratio but didn't want to go through the nightmare of putting the old rack back on which is in pieces.

    Pretty much. my pinion seal failed not long after i fixed it the first time so drove with no belt off. With semi slicks, lsd and an si quick rack it is very difficult to drive and point to a corner on the road, very difficult to park. i wouldnt leave out pas on this car.

    Just a minor update,

    Pulled the head off to get a bent valve fixed (or neglected to fix a long time ago) so it wouldnt do any damage. Whilest doing that ive decided to fit:

    New thermostat, Mocal Oil Cooler
    New Radiator Shroud
    new fuel hoses and filter from the tank (botched repair previously)
    waiting for some PeterT special cams to be made
    connect the tacho
    406 master cylinder (genuine pug at special price
    shortened inlet manifold

    hope this all goes well..

    Haha yeah doing a s/c conversion at some point. the charger, ecu and short radiator will cost be in the region of 5k so it can wait for a bit..

    Peter - was a tapping last time it definately sounds different from before, more of a higher pitch tick as opposed to the deeper tap i
    had with the crook valve

    2 more pictures of the manifold on. Dont underestimate how hard some of the bolts are to get in..

    This is a spoox manifold. To be honest there was too much fettling around for my liking. I had the mi16 version
    once and it didnt even clear the alternator on my last motor. Probably wouldnt get a custom part from them
    again.

    On this the injector connectors rub against the manifold, the throttle has to be turned 90 deg and then the hole for the dowel drilled out. They also didnt clean the manifold of shavings before they shipped it so i had to get a local engineering shop to do it properly.

    Why didn't you leave the stock manifold on until the SC gets installed? Are there any advantages of the short intake without a SC?

    Nothing really, It gives a mile of room up front to work on the motor and i dont have to use a hacked up fan shroud now, i can mount the radiator properly.

    Saves space in my garage more importantly
