    hey guys!

    not many pictures on this one!

    As some of you may know after the rebuild i started getting some sump compression and my catch can started filling up within a week/ 1200km, and my drive way was looking like a petrol station with so many oil leaks.

    Decided monday night that tuesday im stripping and pulling motor out!



    that was monday, tuesday i pulled the motor apart, was leaking oil from the head gasket thats what happens when a motor is under warranty and something goes wrong and they just reuse the parts!!! i mean really!!!!
    i looked at the pistons and rings and to me they looked 2nd hand!!! the rings were so sharp you could take plaster off a wall! but instead of fighting and pointing fingers i decided to just sort it out and put new stuff in! i put OEM pistons and hastes rings in. Yosh was a legend and GAVE me a set of ARP head bolts he had spare.

    then did some heat shielding around the brake booster lines and the aircon lines



    motor rebuilt and ready to go in



    finished up tuesday afternoon and was ready to go! went to work on wednesday and wednesday night repaired some vac lines, rerouted the catchcan pipes and fixed some things i missed.







    ran on actuator pressure for the last 600km and no leaks or smoke and car was pulling pretty good!
    put n75 back yesterday and the car is pulling like a boss!!!!


    on wednesday im going to yosh for some logs and checks so got a few things i need to do before then!

    tonight its fit my EBC blue and yellows on, tomorrow night ill do a oil change and a final run thru on the car and good to go!

    o and waiting for mr prawny to send me a prezzie so i can make my new TIP

I'm so over this hey! Its a constant battle for me this year! I went almost a year with no issues and now everything that can go wrong is going wrong this year!

    Keep it up mate, shame to see this much effort go to waste. It starts to become a struggle finding a balance between power/reliability

    Sunday i stripped turbo off and sent it in monday, took both Karls and my k04 in to see what can be used to make 1 good one.
    Picked it up yesterday afternoon and it was ready to fit, now i never took much pictures of fitting the turbo as i did that a couple of weeks ago lol

    but what i did take pics of is the battery relocation and the devilsown race tank







    there you can see the cable iv used and how iv run it to the starter and from the starter to fuse box





    i just cleaned that spot up and sprayed it as it was eaten by the battery acid, im not phased to much by the colour as im going to be making a plate to blank that section off









    ok so next couple of pics is the Devilsown 8.5L baffled race tank for WMI





    here you can see how it is baffled, the section where the wm feed is has a little shield type piece that does not run dry when cornering or when it gets to like 1L left in the tank








    big thanks to ash again for pulling thru and giving me a hand
