Post Fiend (4/5)



  1. Mean bro! Looks the goods
  2. Damn that sucks about the jack! Funny story though the exact fucking thing happened with my ms65 crown mashed the radiator shroud, made radiator leak and bent the fuck out of the radiator support panel. Paint looks bloody ace
  3. Still been cracking on with this, 70% finished with our tiny home build so that's taken priority over this unfortunately.. Still been trying to get this running. Installed exhaust with lambda o2 sensor in it. No photo though. Fucked off the extra 2 injector loom and plugs and terminated the end. I used my soldering iron to engrave the plugs so I no which is which. Loom all finished now. Mounted ecu and relays on bottom side of glovebox hidden and out of the way. Used 2 bolts thru from glovebox into perspex so can remove easily enough if need be. I can access all the fuses so hopefully shouldn't need too. Fired up ECU and went thru all the pre start up checks. Everything works, and is what it should be, coil 1, injector 1 etc. no error codes not bad! Green LED is my AEM methanol light, if an error code pops up it'll flash depending on the fault code/low reservoir. I've set it up in the ecu that if it throws an error/low reservoir it'll engage the supercharger clutch and switch fuel tables that ill get setup at tuning stage, pretty handy failsafe. The led illuminates brighter when it starts spraying. As I got further into setting up the ecu it didn't come with its problems.. Firstly the bmw e series tps had failed/was already broken before installing was a pickapart special. After testing with multimeter it was apparent it was stuffed. Back to pick a part for another, with my newly acquired testing skills I tested another before buying. After installing i was able to sync it to ecu so win! Then when trying to sync my trigger 1 with ecu, nzefi coil on cylinder 1 randomly blew the coil fuse at the relay and then when changing the fuse it would instantly heat up real quick and almost be untouchable within 10 seconds. All the other 3 worked. I had already checked for spark etc in ecu before I got to this stage. Re checked wiring and all is correct. Anyway nzefi were good about it and Chris sent out another but warned in past its been due to incorrect wiring. Got it all hooked back up and I was stilling struggling to sync trigger 1 with ecu. Turned out the crank sensor my mate gave me was a magnetic pickup and not a GS sensor for ferrous metal.. picked up another cherry GS100502 but am yet to change it over. Should do the trick though. My gauge pod turned out so I started installing, the 2 gauges are oil pressure and boost gauge. The oil pickup i will run to ecu and set up a failsafe then ecu to run the gauge. As previously mentioned i decided to mount it on steering column behind steering wheel. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Couple more pics of engine bay cuz why fuckn not Thanks for looking Almost there now
  4. Installed my air intake temp sensor into the charger intake. Its fitted on the bottom side Top radiator hose fitted, new thermostat and gasket and started filling her up with coolant, this is how I do it. Some radiator hose with some thread tape around a bottle. Take off the top heater hose till coolant comes out of head then connect back up and take off other end at heater core. Prob 50 odd pumps off the upper and lower radiator hoses with my hand until no more bubbles come up in container. Goes hard for what it is. No leaks so success Managed to get it all assembled again too. Methanol injector is all hooked up, this photo sucks but it's on the bend before the supercharger after throttle body. Still need to install section of exhaust and chuck the windband in then its onto setting up ecu
  5. Mrs loves it when I do some baking haha Cleaned up the charger intakes and gave em some new wrinkle. This time round I pre heated the alloy to help prevent any runs. Worked a treat will let it cool down and install tomorrow evening Pre heating em Ta daaa Thanks for looking
  6. I have a pair of front ms65 doors which are in pretty good nick if you're interested in buying em Unfortunately only front drivers and passengers. No rear doors but I no of someone who has some good rear doors in chch send@toy-mota a message for the rears. Black is a hard colour to prep which I've found out haha it shows up every imperfection
  7. Been ticking off the to do list. Centered up my trigger wheel. Its now perfectly center. Radiator with shroud/electric fan in Got the bungs welded into intake and exhaust Decided I would re do the wrinkle paint while its out to tidy it up abit. Got a run in it so will sand back and do it again. Lambda exhaust bung After 3 weeks held up at customs all they wanted to no was if it was new or used.. surely it speaks for itself. Pretty happy with it ill fuck the extra 2 injectors off and re crimp plug and thats the wiring side complete. Just need to fit the intake and exhaust, tap a thread for methonal injector and its all done. Vacuum lines have been connected up including one for the aem controller. Also ordered a billet style dual gauge pod with a 15 psi boost gauge and oil pressure gauge these will sit on top of steering column behind steering wheel. Wasnt sure where else to mount it not keen on dash gauges/pillar mount. This will look ace i reckon ill post photos when it all turns up All going well hopefully have it running next weekend
  8. Thanks bro yeah ata say all out of stock ill call em and double check tomorrow
  9. Finished off the engine bay loom. I brought an ebay injector loom since it was way cheaper than buying the plugs from nzefi. Its off an old skyline they share the same plug as these rx7 injectors. Anyway it's held up at customs so once I have that it's all done. Things left to do before I can fire it up. Injector loom. Center the trigger wheel as it's off by couple mm. Install radiator/shroud with fan. Get the AIT sensor bung welded into the charger intake right before plenum. Get the o2 lambda sensor bung welded into exhaust. Run the meth/water lines to engine and tap in the injector pre supercharger. Get some methanol ** if anyone knows where to purchase in nz lemme no in discussion thread I Googled and tried a few including mere mere dragway but no luck. Set up ecu, timing, injector dead times etc Thanks for looking Discussion thread
  10. Been carrying on with this I've just about finished the wiring now. All plugs have been terminated now (including lambda) I got abit carried away ended up de looming the engine bay. I just need to sheath remaining main runs and its all done! My AEM water/meth injection kit has turned up which I got onto installing Made a bracket for the tank to sit on in the boot I've installed it in boot along with pump and have wired it all up just need to run the lines to intake and thats all done Didn't no where to mount controller so installed into glove box Os nats 2016 my battery moved and shorted out on radiator. Turns out it fucked alot of my earths but I never knew as was in plastic sheathing. Anyway I replaced all earths including all ones to regulator. Amazingly regulator tested out fine so that's a win. Getting close to firing it up now
  11. Thanks bro yeah def was a project to take on but pretty happy with the results now. Where abouts is the damage maybe try source replacement panels/cuts and weld em in.
  12. Just spoke to him - they come with the stainless steel backing
  13. @toy-mota got his from rarespares for his ms65 he will be able to shed some light i thought the stainless backing came with them
  14. Tried rarespares? They sell them for ms65 outer door belts
  15. Still been cracking on with this. Mounted my 16" electric fan into my factory radiator shroud! Fit like a glove My universal 36-1 trigger wheel turned up so I modified it and make a bracket to house the cherry sensor. When I was setting the distance up for the sensor and turning engine over by hand it was apparent it was off center by 1~2mm I'm not sure if this will be a problem but I think I'll just remove it and scalp the holes out a couple mm to get it perfectly center. Made a start on the wiring. I've never done this before so took my time and labeled everything It's now in the engine bay layed out the way its all going to run but didn't take a photo. Made up a power distribution board mounted it on some tinted perspex which will mount bottom side of glove box in passenger foot well. That's all for now
