sprayed my calipers:



whilst they came up good i was hoping the colour was a bit darker. i wanted the ferrari/porche yellow brake colour which is a very dark/slightly orange yellow, but as you can see they're basically banana yellow.

a gloss pack or similiar might darken them up a bit. need to go buy a can assuming it exists.

about to sort out the surge tank, couple of questions:

this diagram is the best way to set it up yeah?


and i'm trying to work out the difference between in tank & external pumps. i've currently got a walbro 255 in-tank replacement, what's stopping me from running that externally?

Being in tank is for cooling the the pump I believe.

Don't worry, after some hard track sessions those front calipers will be dark yellow/brown anyway

i'm ok with this

they had all manner of paint missing and so forth so they needed a coating to keep the corrosion etc out. so i scrubbed them down and went with brightass balls-out yellow

bonnet vents are cut. i've still gotta mesh them, clean them up etc etc (still marker on the bonnet and some other stuff) but that's a rough idea of how they're going to look.

should have my heads in a few hours.

Looking good. Get your heads back yet? lol. Loving the in-your-face-yellow, definitely stands out, in a good way.

these bad boys arrived

and i managed to get this far yesterday:

and got it done today!

it's alive it's alive!

and how the vents look at the moment:


haven't even begun to clean them up etc.


engine is just N/A at the moment as i've got a new charge pipe/etc coming. not that it matters as i need to wear the cams in as it is.

i only made one error reinstalling and that is that i got my fuel in/return lines mixed up. ergo the pump pressurised the line AFTER the regulator. anyone know if this can harm it at all?

stay tuned for more!

Damn, got this thing done pretty damn quick if I may say so. What else you going to do to the car? or is it one of them things to what we just need to wait for? Don't know if that can harm it, but I know that the car wont start if they are mixed up. Speaking of fuel related things, I need to re-do my set up.

LMAO!!! Thats why I taped mine and wrote on there which way they go. I knew I would of, at that time, burned the car to the ground, then just sit there and dump it somewhere and buy something else. BUT, I didn't, so now it just sits as I am awaiting parts myself. Hate playing the waiting game.

just wondering as seeing the stock Rs hood is the heavy ass steel version wouldn't you have been better getting an alloy wrx hood and run a reverse scoop for weight saving?

if i could have got my mits on one, yes

but the reverse scoop actually flows air INWARDS. the area of the windscreen join is actually high pressure. if you check out the "homemade aero" thread you'll see some data on it.

the front of the bonnet is the lowest pressure points. (in fact any part of the front half is negative pressure or suction) so the vents basically need to go just after the radiator ala evo.

i searched for months for an alloy bonnet but didn't have any luck, so i had to keep/slice up the steel one.

more goodies arrived in the mail today, will post up pics in the morning.

much better picture of the engine bay as it sits running the cams in:

these arrived in the mail:

to put these on:


and i also run a "custom" setup with the AOS.

the AOS (i'm sure you can guess the brand) actually runs both a breather line out of the top crankcase ventilation, and runs a return line for the oil back into the SAME vent hole. the idea being that the blowby flows up one tube and then just trickles down the other/isn't forced up because oil sticks to the side of the tube and is much heavier than air. this obviously isn't optimal, so i now have a line out from the top of the crankcase and actually have the oil return line run straight back down into the sump:


as you can see, it runs out of the sump with a brass barb, and then up between the swaybar and the steering rack, through the hole in the engine crossmember and then runs straight into the bottom of the AOS.

this is what i consider to be the ultimate blowby/crankcase breather setup.

damn, this looks great, was hoping you would have the SC on there, can't imagine how nice that is going to sound. Have you driven the car yet with it in the NA setup? Also, are you going to wrap your plug wires in heat resistance wrap? Just curious.

been driving it around running the cams in. i'm about halfway there.

SC will go on soon enough, and i've never seen a reason to wrap the plug leads?

Got friends that do it on their V8s, just so the heat does not get to em, since I know you got more heat over there, and since you will be road racing it, might hellp the spark plig wire. Just some food for thought. Since we are on spark plug wires, are you running any special set of them, or are they just replacements?

I got you, and the reason for my question is because I have a ton of V8 guys that run that DEI stuff on their plug wires since they are right by the headers. They say it does not make the plug wire as hot, one even did some test and he said after a few runs his car ran slower and felt that not all was there. Don't ask me for the data, this was way back in 2007 and it was on GTO, or as you guys call em, holden monaros. Just wish they would of came SC from the factory. Anyways, keep it up, and also, what else you got? any vids?
