Hi,

I could see no mention of testing breathers in the mot testers manual?

Cheers  :proud:

Emission systems don't seem to be mentioned for petrol cars in the manual.

Some testers can get a little fractious when faced with a modified system venting to the atmosphere & start talking about emission of air quality pollutants (regulated by Euro emissions standards etc etc).... & lets face it who wants to upset a MOT tester at such a critical time.

 

NB; A fluid leak that creates a pool on the floor within 5 minutes that's more than 75mm in diameter constitutes a failure -luckily that only applies to the vehicle & not the owner!

 

:lol:

Wow that looks absolutely stunning, how much 😂

Thanks! And even seriously I don't think I could sell this car

I know what you are saying, there is more to the car than just the work you put in, I am sure he would be extremely proud.

Not a great update, I've been tidying up the car mainly, replacing temporary steel fasteners with stainless steel. Managed to finally get the rear fog light on and wired up! A previous owner bodged the wiring for this, so neatened it all up and added bullet connectors to look OEM.

Nice. I was thinking of adding a gasket behind that bracket to protect the paintwork on mine.

Q

I've used felt tape. Same with the wing mirrors and spot light brackets :)

I realise i'm way over due an update! A fair bit has happened, mainly alloy fabrication and the purchase of a fair few bits of silicone. I re-visted how i want to do the charge cooler and how to get the fuel to the throttle body. As life has an annoying knack of getting in the way, I was at RIAT for a week, utterly honored to be invited back!

Alloys parts went off to Matty at Fusion Fabs, after chatting about the charge cooler, he made me a bracket for it and added some tight radius turns!

Got the parts back and the downpipe on, installed the wideband lambda and it worked! Since these pictures have been taken, the wiring has been neatened up.

New plates on!

Inlet and charge cooler on, now comes the fun part!

I had a head scratch about where i wanted to mount the FPR until a mate of mine said it just needs to sit off the fuel rail and can be dampened by a short pipe it can sit on (he did this on his Evos to great effect). So got it all plumbed in!

I'm happy with this as its simple and works. No need for excess fuel pipe just to look nice. Next came in to wiring in the MAP sensor, i stripped the Specialist component loom and installed the 3 wire combo all the way to the ECU, used extra pins and a few wiring diagrams and hey presto, done!

Did a full sensor check on SXTune and calibrated some of the new sensors.

I did a cheeky turn over and guess what...

Well happy with that! Ran for 40 seconds then off. No leaks! Although it does seem to be using water somewhere and i'm not sure where its going...
 
Popped down to Viper Performance in Telford this afternoon and got some more silicone hoses, the boost piping is almost complete!

With regards to the chargecooler piping, i went for silicone in the end as i could get the tight radius turns, the filler neck and the pump all in nicely. The 2 pipes end up here awaiting for the new radiator which should be with me next week!!

So that's it for now.  Next stage is radiator on, ECU and pump relay mounting then off to Matty next month for the exhaust and more alloy pipework!! Can't wait :)
