    It only has one. So removing it and replacing with pipe sounds like a much better idea.

    Why add mufflers when you can remove mufflers.

    Living in the fast lane from now mate. Shit its a hoot to drive. Couple of things to sort out this weekend (list is for me to remember) Get some heater hose and plumb in heater Add fitting (and by fitting I mean a piece of pipe) to intake pipe and run breather pipe into intake to stop stank getting into car Sort out boot alignment. It doesn't shut properly and squeaks like a motherfucker Drive it some more

    Picked car up today, everything is sorted (well as sorted as it can be). Runs like a treat, starts just looking at the key, and has a good amount of go (5th gear up the Ngaraunga Gorge). Good times. Still not loud enough tho (need to chop muffler out). And might wind a little bit more fuel in (diesel man said there was room there for improvement) . I can finally put the nismo sticker I got on! Someone sell me some nice 5x114 15's please.

    I hope someone paid you good money to take those wheels off their hands

    Update time! Just spoke with the garage. One bent intake valve, three mushroomed exhaust valves, and valve seats that are round. So best case scenario really (seriously). Will replace the stuffed valves and machine the seats (hopefully stay within spec etc), otherwise new inserts. Pretty happy with the outcome, nothing else untoward they could find.

    More pictureless updates, wof aquired, boost gauge installed and pushing a solid 10 psi. car is booked in for a couple of weeks to get the head pulled and valves done etc. progress.
  11. Beaver's '87 Gloria Wagon

    Sweet, ill get in touch with them etc. Will name dropping you help or will they charge me extra?
  12. Beaver's '87 Gloria Wagon

    Yeh im leaning towards just throwing money at someone to do it all TBH. (bought not built etc).
  13. Beaver's '87 Gloria Wagon

    Rofl. I have the head off the old motor as well, but TBH would rather do it once and do it right (despite all by dicking about previously). But thank you for the kind offer.

    Update time. Compression test shows 3 cylinders at 340 (goal is around 400 I'm told), 1 at 200, and two at low 200's. They were also able to confirm that the timing mark on the crank pulley is not actually TDC, which it should be (which explains the pump timing issue). Cant explain this one. Their diagnosis was that at least a couple of valves are not seating properly, likely damaged/from contact with the cam. Diesel and turbo (where the car is) don't do head work, so any Welly boes have any recommendations? @Seedy Al @AllTorque They recommended Kerry Lindsay in Petone. Idea will be to get the head off, do the valves, check for other damage (hoping for none), remark the timing pulley at TDC, and chuck back together and pray it works. Good news is car still starts and drives which makes life a bit easier. Oh and @kyteler I spoke with them about the possibility of cam timing creating these issues, and he was pretty confident that wouldn't be the case based on the results.

    It did (after you removed my screwdriver from it ) it was my ghetto set up to turn it over which was the fail haha
