    Default Starting the project..

    So the time has come to get start futering. College is done on friday for 5 weeks so i have some time to get my hands dirty. Came across a 98 type r engine today (complete) with a cracked piston, but i have perfectley good pistons in my own so im just gonna use the throttle body, intake manifold which is already red, so that saves me some time painting mine and the air intake. Also as some of you may have seen in another thread i have a v5 intercooler there so the brackets off this non runner will come in handy. Got the engine for a 100 euro . Gonna ring around now and get the best deal i can on a timing belt kit, idler pulleys and the water pump and oil pump, a catch can and a high flow race rad and thats the budget spent for this month. Ill get some pics on the go when i get started (if she'll let me use her new camera). Im sure ill run into some problems along the way and will be asking for advice on a day to day basis probably. Anywho, wish me luck, cause im gonna need it....

    So i got a few hours in the shed today. Only got the engine down last nite. Weather was a bit of a torture to lift anything. Got some of the bits of my own and then got the inlet manifold of the new, well i say new but... Anyway turns out its a cracked block not a piston. Pictures show it. The fact this engine has the yellow 440cc injectors slipped my mind aswell until i seen them, which put a smile on face . The paint on the manifold was coming off like nothing normal so im going to get that a and a few other bits sandblasted and painted with vht. When i rang the guy yesterday about my timing belt kit and water pump and that i got his answerin machine 4 times so i ordered a v6 bonnet and grill, h-brace, moldings and carpet off another chap because the money was burning a big hole in my pocket. Should be here before christmas hopefully. Any some pictures.

    The old and new throttle bodies. Its gonna save cutting the lip from the i/c and the 95 throttle body by using the new one. Which cant be bad.
