Postby dialate » Thu Jun 03, 2010 4:41 pm

:D Some of you may know, i bought Rudeboy, now we are in the process of giving him back his original heart!

Were done, other than some wiring glitches. Will be replacing the fire damaged stuff sometime, think its working for now though, so if i can just get it running ill be happy.

lookin real good

p.s the silicon pipe on the wastegate should be on the bottom port, top one stays open, and make sure you get the flow direction through the T-piece right.

uh huh! We were wondering about that!! Thx!!!

Care to enlighten me on the wiring?

Car cranks, got fuel, no spark though?! Very frustrating.

The dis4 has a flashing red light, which I assume is power, and we have matched the old and new wires, pin for pin...

HELP PLEASE!!!!

Must thank my mate and mechanic Fernando - i do all the menial stupid things, he does all the important stuff ;) THX DUDE! respect!!

Tidying up a little.. starting to look a lot nicer.

I hate seeing excess wires! but dont have the time / knowledge / patience to wire the fusebox into the glovebox. The fusebox is loose currently, it will be secured just in front of the radiator bottle (metal box).. very happy with the wiring from the coils and dis4 unit - they will be pretty much invisible in the next day or so. The big plug sitting under the dis 4 is un-taped and loose as the dis4 is just in a test fitted position, not secure yet.

The red and black wires need to be attached to ground a perm power - next on the list ;)

Im getting pretty happy with it!

AND A MASSIVE THANKS TO ELROY /RUDEBOY for putting up with our 10:30pm ramblings!

Dude you rock!!

ps - Shane and Wynand.. thanks for letting me know the oil pressure sensor was not in the block - i had to clean about 2 litres of ELF racing oil off my garage floor! ;) not fun! but worth it for the startup!
:)

smiles all round!!

Elroy, thanks again dude! Legend!
