    I wouldn't use anyone else. I am Australian based these days though....





    Not even close to perfect. But it wont burn my car down and doesn't look too bad.
    Will need to re-purpose some wires on the MAP sensor plug but job done.

    On to Plumbing in Fuel lines and coolant lines.
    I also need to drain the fuel tank of whatever is in there and sort out Pump, Pump wiring, Reg, Pressure sensor.





    mopped the floor after that.

    Ok Starting to look like a car again.

    Spent on a fab guy to make up quality intercooler pipework. He also mounted a new plazmaman intercooler which is a better job than the china unbranded core I had on it which was fine for a stock sr20.

    So now need to knock up new clamps and flush out the pipes.
    Unfortunately, he couldn't tackle the exhaust and I need to figure out that one.


    Fits my I don't want it to stand out from a stock s14 (if I get the pipes painted black behind the bumper)








    Sump ready to go in. Again overkill for a car that will do very little. Due to covid iv been waiting on that since August.
    The current sump is dented a bit.





    Bit of a struggle to keep the project moving. But its moving.

    Who knew changing a sump would be a real pain.
    Nissan RTV is tough stuff.

    Then I couldn't get it to clear the pickup with sub-frame in.
    -ARB off
    -Tried jacking the engine from the Box for some wiggle room.
    -Now lowered the sub-frame a little on the bolts with box jacked.




    Will see how I go tonight but may need to lower the frame on a jack and support the engine and box.


    May need to drop the rack and or frame ....

    Its in.

    Hand tight to cure for 24 hours. What a pig.

    Got it my taking an engine mount out and jacking the gearbox up.
    Hopefully the RTV didnt smudge too much and it seals. I wont get at it for another week now and bolt it up.

    Had to shorten the turbo drain so that is out one more time as i confirmed the drain forward is an oil drain while sump was out.


    Sump is done.. No more dents...

    Update Its been a while.



    Bumper cut and re-fitted. Had the pipes powder coated black so the intercooler is less obvious.

    New Clamps in place all heavy duty 18mm wide high torque clamps



    Battery Relocated - Re-done.

    Batter relocation was not great when I bought the car and the earth was tek screwed to the body.

    Ran a new earth to the block from the boot in 0AWG/50MM2 cable and re-did all the lugs and battery terminals. So every thing is now Star Point grounded with overkill cables.

    The original relocation was done by a previous owner and was sketchy. So glad this is all tidy now

    The breaker is now mounted properly and is a continuous 100Amp breaker with a 200AMP or so peak load. (I think)



    Fuel Tank Rust

    Went to fit a new pump and the tank is not a good place. Fuel sitting created sludge and rust in the tank. This is going to be a bit more work to clean out. My own fault for leaving fuel in the tank for a few years.

    Going to try and clean it out without removing the tank as its a sub-frame out to get access to the tank.

    This is likely what killed the injectors.

    Plan is to de-grease, vinegar clean and run e85 through it and the lines to see what comes out of the tank. I have filters to run it through.



    Debating if I bite the bullet and upgrade the fuel lines since this job became a bit of a surprise.

    Reg and flex fuel .

    Ticked the reg and flex fuel sensor off to the side. Just waiting on some fittings to button that up.



    Fuel Tank Rust

    Flushed with De-greaser, cleaning vinegar and fresh fuel.
    Scrubbed it by sticking my hand down there with rubber gloves.

    Cleaned up the old pump and bracket to use it to circulate fresh fuel through the system before dumping the fuel.








    Oil Cooler/Heater Bypass

    Bypassing the factory oil cooler. To get the car going and will after it runs put in the oil-cooler and remote filter.
    Access under the manifold will be a bit easier and I have less stuff to go wrong.

    Trying to be brutal now on just get it running.

    Fuel system at the back of the car all enclosed. Walbro 450 is wired in.
    Waiting on a new used pump bracket to fully close it up
    Went with an aftermarket fuel hat just to have the provision for bigger lines later and Deutsche connectors letting me run bigger wires and solid crimps.


    Relays:
    The relay is a TE 12V monster which is big enough i can run may more off it if I need more pumps later.
    But it really went in because its neat.

    Next:
    The next issue U have run into is the wiring loom is making contact at the back of the fuel rail.
    I need to remove the old coolant line brackets at the back of the block to tuck the loom out of the way of the fuel lines.

    could you re-do the pipes and move the PAS reservoir to the other side of the engine bay?

    I'm going to do the line in steel braided hose and use a nicer looking bottle.

    My justification being it's running too close to the top mount manifold and I have a few meters of an10 hose.

    It's excessive and no real justification other than it'll never melt
