Great work on it all. Also dynamat looks v tidy, was it a pain to get it to fit in all the cracks?

i dont know about you but i planned a summer project for my kit. and just my luck it ends up takings most of its time over the winter and its bloody freezing. haha oh well! Keep it up ull be done for when the weather clears up thats for sure!


Yep I planned a summer project but there were delays that meant I couldnt collect until October. Yes it is feckin freezing working on the it, I managed to get the garage up to the heady heights of 13 degrees celsius for two days then the gas ran out and I was back down to 9 which took the cold bite off the metal but you could still see your breath, it was -1 outside.

Dynamat - use a heat gun when applying and one of the dynamat rollers or similar and you get good results, apart from the bits were you cant get the roller due to frame being in the way. Beware of sitting on the dynamat once it place as the black stuff sticks like sh!t to a blanket and is now firmly stuck to the ar5e of my trousers.

I am aiming for completion by the L2B in May, unfortunately I wont be able to do anything to the car in Feb as I am having a back operation which means no work for a month and no touching the car. In a twisted way I am looking forward to it as it means when I do get back to working on the car it wont hurt like f*ck any more, building a car and a bad back do not go well. I have to find things that other peole can do for me for a month.

I have been quiet on here for a while as I have been flat out trying to get as much done as poss before I go under the knife on Thursday.

So here goes, if you to come in to my garage and look you would probably say that I hadnt done a thing as I am in the midst of doing all the little jobs that take the time and look like you ahve achieved next to nothing.

So the car took a trip down from Notts to West Sussex exactly two weeks ago today, and is now living in my tiny little single garage in which I dont even have the room to swing a mouse, never mind about a cat. Still it is nice and cosy and I can get the temperature up to something near comfortable now.

So I made a start on mounting the fuse board/wiring loom (AKA 'The Snakes Wedding') and mounting the reservoir for the pedal box.

Bent up some ali sheet for the fuse board to live on (note the pedal box is out - again):

Made a mounting bracket for the reservoir:

Then I went about mounting the fuse board:

And over last weekend I have been moutning the engine wiring loom and making steps towards watertighting the rear bulkhead, a few snaps for a flavour:

Aiming for 300BHP and 200ft/lb torque. Thats what this setup is getting in the Elises, however the exhaust is slightly different and I have a few other bits that may help me get there. Later down the line I intend to intercool and get a few more ponies from it but thats a bit of a way off.

whilst laid up after my back op I have been designing an air deflector for my supercharger that will allow me to blow the air away to a PWR barrel air to water chargecooler (PWR Barrel I/C's), so here are a few rendering of the unit, to give and idea of size the tube has an OD of 63mm. The whole unit is designed to sit between the charger and the manifold, it does add a bit more to the vertical center of gravity of the car but gives cooler, denser air and ultimately more power. I am also looking into different ways to intercool the charger, if anyone knows of any let me know.

The holes in the side and the use of two plates will (in theory) reduce the amount of heat transfer from the hot air blowing out the charger to the cooled air coming in from the chargecooler. The first picture is a quick reminder of where the charger sits, the bent pipe will come out under the drive snout of the charger and the barrel chargecooler will sit underneath the manifold, will be a squeeze though.

Thanks Mark, One good thing to come out of it is that I get to rip the charger unit from the manifold and have a really good look around it, always nice to eat you breakfast/lunch/dinner while staring at a supercharger on the kitchen table. Misses not that happy about it but she knows its not for ever.



Nice job Andy!

Get well soon!


Hey Lyle, thanks. I have been drawing up other bits n bobs, might post up new throttle cable mount (to throttle body) later on.

I have also designed an air oil separator but will wait to see how effective it is before posting drawings as I might make some money on the design??!!?? Trust me when I say it will be better than these bullcrap catch cans you get off ebay which do virtually sweet FA. I need as cleaner as as possible as it all goes through the charger so the PCV valve and the cam/valve cover both need to go through an air oil spearator.

Thankyou kind Sir for your words of appreciation.

I have wanted a car like this since I was 16 so it only took me the best part of twenty years to get there, never give up on your dreams. :thumbsup:

Here is a copy of the drawing for my new throttle cable mount, it brings the angle of the cable down by about 30 degrees, the previous angle was necessary in the civic to allow the cable to sit on top of stuff in the engine bay but no longer needed.

I must say that I havent fitted this yet so dont know how effective it is or if there are any issues with it so if any of you decide to copy it, your on your own. However feel free to of you think it might help in some way.
