  1. Fairenough They can be made to look pretty sweet and simple. ive seen setups with pumps hidden in the grill so all you see is the intercooler. With water fittinging facing down to their hidden but yeah understand thecwant to keep it simple and running being first priority
  2. Google "barrel water to air intercooler" ive got pumps and heat exchangers I'm not using witch would save on kit cost
  3. Found them!! Two holes in the sill, both 20mmx40mm took it all back to bare metal, cut some bit out. welded some back in. Pretty tricky, not using a gas welder for nearly 10 years and the metal being so thin. There were multiple tools thrown across the driveway. but I got it done. Then started on the epoxi treatment. gave a layer carbon fibre to the effected areas (off cuts from another project) I mixed up to much resin so the whole sill got a coat. unfortunitly cause I use the car as a daily (literally every day) I had to put it all back together this evening, and didn't get to do a full layer of boat cloth. Next weekend hopefully. feels good to get rid of the last of the rust! Nearly there
  4. Picked up a media blaster to sort the windscreen sill out. want to give it a layer of boat cloth and westsystem epoxi then paint. bits of trim were also hiding forren objects. glad all the chassis works nearly finished, just need panel and paint
  5. For hype, here some photos of Aw11 drag cars from 1991 when drag racing started taking off in jap, and most popular chassis for it was a 240z under the miffker those are duel waste gates
  6. So the 4agze came out a while back. The v6 swap is under way. when I bought the donor car the wiring in it was pretty av and just a get it going sort of setup. think the plan was to get it running and certed then work away at it. By nature once it was running none of it was taken further and enjoying the car was the frame of mind from then on. for me, once the motors in I don't want to pull it out again. that said, it's gone from "riding wiring" and tiding up the engine bay. To me wanting to do it properly as I wish the car to be as the final product, as I know once it's done I won't want to deal with it again. so I've pulled the entire loom apart. Cutting all the rear wiring open, and from the rear strut back it's literally just the tail lights and number plate wiring. feeds back to the ecu have been cut at the engine loom plugs and labeled and pulled all the way back threw past the fuse box to the cabin. Some of witch wil become redundant, others like "engine check" light and rpm input will be intergrated into out puts on the new ECU. ecu is link G4+ xtreme. Witch is sitting here. I've got most of the link loom sorted and labeled ready for the lump to go in to get lengths for fitting off. sorting IO list Atm, couple unusual things like having rad fan plus engine bay cooling fan. Mr2's have factory fans in the vents to push hot amibiant air out of the bay. so I've got extra relays etc to order/wire. wanting to do it right I'll finish up the wiring diagrams and get the elect engineer at work to put them into a pro format to keep with the car photos are crap sorry but know you guys request photos because
  7. Started assessing the last of the rust repairs. Drivers sides been lecking into the floor for a little while. See if I can borrow a media blaster attachment for my compressor think I'll pull the gaurds off and hit it with the black epoxi sealer. Maybe some boat cloth glass threw the windshield sill Heading overseas for works meaning I'm short on car time more and more. And as much as I love the rustic look, the paint jobs no longer sealed so a full respray is more and more imminent
  8. Got the misso doing the front wheel bearings. think the drivers side has gone due to the caliper constantly pressing on it. ive free'd up the piston and regreased the slider pins so hopefully that sorts it. plugs and pins turned so I can get started on the wiring over the next week, hopefully smash lots out next weekend
  9. Looks common to me, I've pulled quite a few looms apart recently so I'll check threw my plugs. id search threw the injector though, Bosch style will have a common type plugs for multiple injector sizes theres a load on Ali express super cheap that are the same ones most suppliers sell as new ones edit: Good excuse to put a 10 banger in it
  10. Ooo snazzy Couldn't fit the rubber cap with the offset of the cig lighter. ill see if I can mod it to fit the original cig lighter head to look oem. if your wondering why I'm pissing around with these little things it to keep me entertained while I wait for molar to roll in haha
  11. Even more shiny
  12. Mmmm shiny
  13. Also swapped out the cig lighter for a USB port. I stopped by PB tech and picked up a USB extension I'll cut the end off and solder to the USB panel mount fitting. means I won't have gay useb cables hanging out from under the glove box or trying to get my head under there to plug one in
  14. Started on wiring. friends building an e36 rally car Atm, never new but they run a quick release harness from factory. basiclly a kiddy lock squeeze and twist at the fire wall and then the engine loom comes undone. so if pulling the motor out, there's no unplugging things off the motor. scrored one off a shell he's wrecking so I'll build that into the loom. being carby there's really only Ign, timing trigger and o2 sensors feeding back to the ECU so not much to re-pin. main thing I'm concerned about if the extra wiring for the system, I'm on the hunt for a engine bay fuse box from a similar year yota with more fuse and relay outlets. probably from an EFI ta63 or ma60 or the likes. then repin it into my car and then I can add the added feeds and fuses into the factory loom. Will be a bit of work but I think it'll be worth it. ive pulled an Aw11 and ae111 loom apart so I've got plenty of spare parts and doing it for a job your think I could do a good job
  15. Been off the road for a wheel with a leaky wheel valve and an indicator relay that gave up. Relay is one that doesn't change flash speeds from jaycar, I'll pull it open and see why it gave up, wouldn't think it would be loading with only two lamps but maybe. other shit storm is the last place I haven't removed rust. you can see it's eating into the seem where the two layers meet, and has made a hole so waters getting into the drivers foot well. the masking tape is the area I'm thinking of cutting out to get at the rust and repair. My welding skills aren't great and I want a good job of it. i found a bloke by the name of chris grant that seems onto it so hopefully he's not to busy to help and I can get it sorted. after that it'all be rust free and sealed up and I can focus on getting that motor in
