Few days of drawing, calculating and planing i managed to assemble it. Hoped id finish it soon but something came up..

Cutting the woofer hole

ImageImageImage

Preparing port for painting in metallic black.

ImageImage

Drilling holes and gluing t-nuts.
Image

I was in a hurry and cut port hole with electric saw but it wasnt perfect so i filled it with fiberglass.

ImageImageImage

Assembled it and finished for the night, hoping to continue in the morning when it gets cured.
Image

Next morning i just didnt like it, it was sealed but i was not satisfied ;). I redid top part and cut port holes on my friends machine cutter :), it took 2 more days but now its perfect!


Added some bracings, every part is glued and screwed, inside i sealed it with transparent silicone.
ImageImageImageImage

Fits perfectly, it has 160liters with ports, speaker and bracings, tuned to 33hz since i dont do SPL. Its loud as hell, not low and precise as IDmax but much louder :).
ImageImage

Just testing this tiny rockford and it sounds amazing, amps will not be placed like this, this is only for testing. I need to finish the looks, every wire will be hidden when i finish amp rack.




BUTTTT in the meantime something POPPED UP :)

I never test max speed. I was on a highway racing with my friend, pushed it all the way to 7500rpm in every gear. In 5th gear on 230+ i changed to 6th gear and she wasnt speeding anymore :(. I slowed down heard that engine sounds bad and drove for few more kilometers, stopped at a nearest parking and realized she is gone :). I will remove head soon and see whats up :). She has 240k km on the clock, my friend never did the engine or a turbo, it was time anyway...

looks awesome buddy.
But.
what did you do to your ECU. And why?

Im thinking of making a digital speed dash for my calibra 90mod 8v. Do you know if the speed info can be extracted from the ECU
or do i need to make a sensor do it all?

Ive changed chips in my ECU and phase 3 requieres some modifications, soldering n stuff. You can google a bit on digital speedo, not possible from the ecu, your car gets speed info from your gear pinion and cable, so you will need pinion with sensor.

This week she is going to visit a mechanic.

I'll write when head falls down :)

Since engine work is going very slowly, I've had to spend some of its budget!

Image

8400 from 2003 was temporary solution, now its 2004 :), color display, DSP with TA etc...

I have decided to visit my friend and help him assemble my car. Traveled 250 kilometers via bus carrying turbo in my bag :). So i was not going back without my car :P

Day one

Parking the car in the garage, enjoying recaro seats and pumping lumbar support :). Fitting standard ecu and putting back the glove box. Changing coolant pipe with metal one.

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

His godfather came later to finish the engine, he is the one who did the full rebuild, busy man with a lot of knowledge. I was washing the parts while they checked the transfer box and changed the viscous coupling, other bits were fine.

ImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImage

Mounting the txb, oil sump and washing oil mesh.

ImageImageImageImageImage

Putting the engine in, mounting steering fluid pump and AC compressor for like 3 times back n forth because of the belt n other stuff we forgot :).

ImageImageImageImage

Day two

Putting back the steering pump, ac comp, tensioner and finally the belt. Connecting hoses, wiring loom and stuff.

ImageImage

Engine started after about 3 seconds :) we've had to change 1 fuel hose. Engine runs perfect, all the tappets became quiet after about 15mins. Filled and bled the steering system and finished other bits. Everything works fine, engine runs really great. Fuel pressure regulator is standard so as injectors and everything for now. Engine is standard, third cyl has a sleeve others were fine by measurement, changed third piston, rings and cr bearings. Drove the car back home that night.

ImageImageImage

Finally together :)

ImageImageImageImage

When i get time ill clean it thoroughly, no rush.

Big thanks to my friend and his godfather for doing amazing job on assembling the engine. They were very lazy, for almost 2 years they were working maybe 7days including 2 with me just to put the engine back in :)

Image Image Image Image

One gauge "glass" was broken so i made new ones spherical and ultra glossy

I will put in bigger amp for my compo systems instead of this tiny on the right and then i can finish upper cover as planed long time ago
Image Image Image Image

New fuel hoses, filled the ac but after one day gas came out, compressor is leaking

Repaired AC compressor, no more leaks for about 2 months, havent got time to write earlier :)

Changed all the fluids
ImageImage

Ordered otto-modell 1/18 magnetic blue same as mine. Its may 2017 modell made in 1250pcs

Image

Old school retro, Ive tried pioneer ipod adapter and its great, nice sound since its IP-bus controlled input. Digged out my old steering wheel remote just for fun like in old times

ImageImage

More powder coating and some painting.

ImageImageImageImage

Got new clutch cable from germany, new model, oiled with silicone oil as per instructions

Image

Trunk is progressing nicely and slowely. Lots of measuring, drawing, CNC cutting. Its hard to draw it since trunk shape is challenging.

ImageImage
ImageImageImage

And i made myself an monument hahah

ImageImageImage

I have to sand the edges, letters etc. Laser cut some plexiglass and I line it with the board by forcing it in :)

ImageImage

Some under bonnet painting

Front bumper was cracked so I've swapped it with the green one :), fitted FMIC without pipes for now and polished whole car.

Image

Image Image Image Image

Image Image Image Image

Image

Old bumper used for short time. Got 55w xenon h1 low beam

Image Image Image


Polished remus, spent about 5 hours polishing :), minor changes to my "tomb" in the trunk haha will put some LEDs when I get time


Image Image Image Image

Image Image Image Image

Took out center gauges so I can use middle vents, traveled a lot and AC works good.

New batter terminal and 50mm2 + for the alternator.
Image

TXB piston seal has failed, not know cause :P
ImageImageImage

Since im 2WD for now, I might lower it a bit, I've bought new 17" wheels and p zero nero 215/40 tires, when i get time I'll fix txb and probably get a camber kit if i decide to lower it.

Image Image Image Image

Image Image

And few pics from vacation
