Done some work on car this week,

Vernier Pulley and XE cam.

Took ages to get the cam timing right:)

Did a brake fluid change on a mates car.

Took boost pipes of, waiting on some new ones:D

Replaced offside drive shaft with equal length shaft, had to have the bearing turned round the other way to fit though, seems the Cav and Vectra have a different mounting system, thanks to Grandad for getting this done.


RAIN HAS BEEN FUN.

To do

Fit new boost pipes (when they turn up).

Bleed brakes as the fluid is 4 years old.

Just hopes rain easies off so I can finish and road test.

OK folks, for those interested:lol:

Done everything on list, had a problem with the 2 1/2 inch boost pipes though:angry:

Had to fit the 2 inch from turbo to inter as the subframe mount was in the way, managed to fit the 2 1/2 inch from inter to top hat.

Road tested today, ran fine for a while, coming home gave it beans like I did when out, but EML came on on the way back, when I got some clear road put foot down and not going above 4 psi.

Not sure what problem is as I erased the code, but have a theory, could be the timing of the inlet cam wrong.

On out run it boosted fine to about 12 psi.

So going to have to phone Track'n'Road to see if they can set it up for me, hopefully, if not then going to fit standard inlet cam.

Just a small update, Grandad killed the car today, can you believe it:D

RAC didn't have a clue so went out and disconnected the MAF sensor ran OK enough to get it home.

After a quick look around one of the boost pipes have fallen off of the intercooler 90 deg bend.

So going to have to fix this little problem, which means wheels off, bumper off and hacksaw out.

Should have it done by Friday, hopefully.

Does that mean you'll be sorting the bumper out whilst it's off?:lol:

Old, thread I know, but got money for Nissan through, so went to bank and put check in.

Going to do some more mods, more intercooler right about 1-2 inches to fit 2 1/2 inch boost pipe from turbo to cooler.

Going to replace front pads with something with a bit more bite, not sure which yet.

Possibility of a GENUINE EDS Phase 3 kit with boost wheel cost about £300, but worth it.

Going to try and increase the inlet of turbo and top hat as I have spares of these.

Hopefully when it gets on the rollers next I should have over 300BHP:D:yahoo:

Ordered some copied VMAX chips, hope they work OK, as my copied Stage 2 have.

Going to get the Regal enlarged top hat and a 4 bar FPR, hope fuel pump can keep up.

Throttle body is going to be increased as well, ordered a spare one to get this done.

Only problem now is traction, so I might have to look into this and try to come up with something.
