    I feel like a plug in would have less io connections than a wire in?
  2. Depends what the wording is on the declaration I suspect. He really should put a photo up of the declaration.

    Currently irrelevant, I just need to know if the conversion can be done. Be a good use of my spare Speeduino if it can.

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    My photo of the injectors seem to indicate that they may also use a removable seat, albeit not screw in. Cant find much info on that, but still looking. Maybe i can turn the ID on them down to fit standard injectors, and retain them with the factory style clamp, and use hoses off the injectors to a remote rail.

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    Anyone got any experience with converting K-Jet to normal injectors? This is what the manifold looks like, you can see the six spaces for the injectors, and with injectors installed There seems to be some kits for other brands, like Porsche, but i can't really find any detail on how the injectors fit into the manifold. Im also pondering how to get fuel to the injectors with all their angles being on the piss, as obviously a normal rail wont work, so old school hose tail injectors running to a "remote" rail? The injectors are also fecking long, with the narrow end pointing down into the inlet manifold (and you can just see the tops protruding in the above photo) Other suggestions are to replace the manifold with a later model one that has normal L-jet injection, but there wasn't one for the 2.8 Cologne V6 and as far as i can see the 2.9 (which had L-Jet) doesnt fit?

    Fair enough, can't blame you for trying different things and going against the grain.

    Crank trigger setup and then use dizzy as secondary input for cam position. Easy and less fucking around than this whole discussion has been. Crank triggers still look OEM unless you use flashy billet parts or some shit. You seem to be making it harder for yourself, for the sake of making it harder?

    Identify these electrical plugs please

    First looks similar to JPT (Junior Power Timer) connectors by AMP. The top one has a weird central white key though, which i havent seen before.

    Agreed. Fronts look OK but rears need some added width for sure.

    haha, that air filter looks mighty familiar. This is what i found choking my first SD1. Needless to say it went much harder with a sick poddie on it.

    re-registering a vehicle

    There is no way to "transfer" the ownership to you when it is de-registered. To re-register it you will need a paper trail of how it came to be in your possession, but other than that in the eyes of NZTA it is currently a bundle of parts, not a car. I have no comment on the plate thing, but might be worth calling the plates people or maybe LicenSys to see what they say about it.
  13. Can confirm this sucks. #RoverSD1life I'd still do it though. No need to make more work now, when you could use what you have at hand. Future you won't mind.
  14. How would a WOF etc test this? Not like they can run it up on a dyno, get it on boost and then volume test it. Its a good idea, im just curious myself. Or more likely, would they just require you to have it in the "open" setting during testing, and fail you if you cant/dont?
