    Finished re-sleeving the whole harness tonight finally. What a mission but I think the outcome will pay off with a much neater engine bay. All I need to do is buy some larger clear heat shrink so I can branch the connectors off to where they need to go.
    I won't tee it all off though until its on the engine as I might be able to re route some it to further neaten it up.


    Not Rywire or Chase bays spec but still good gives it that little extra professionalism.


    Got the turbo back from getting rebuilt by MTQ as well. Shaft and cartridge journals were scored, some bent turbine fins and a small crack in the rear housing.


    The rod bearings are going to be here until January now, so when I get back from Holidays it's go, go, go!

    Making progress now. Bottom end is all assembled and ARP head studs are in.

    Heads on, cams in and timing cover on.



    Just had to fit up covers to see if the colour combo works!

    I got the engine to a stage where I could bolt the gearbox back on and drop it on the subframe. I can easily roll it all out for the remaining work to do on it for ease of access.
    Had more delays in timing chains not being in stock locally and having to get them from Japan again and they won't be here until next weekend. Have some small bits coming from over East too which were supposed to be here by Friday but not coming until next Thursday, otherwise I would have bolted the whole lot back in the car.

    Got my fancy new adjustable IWG all sorted out
    According to my calibrated test rig, it doesn't open until 18-19psi now. Stock is 14psi but wastegate is no good for higher boost levels without it dropping off at higher rpm.

    Engine harness is all but done. A few little brackets to be made and two more connectors needed. It's 10x neater than what it was.



    Injector harness is almost fully tucked.


    Degreased the engine bay as I'm 95% ready to bolt the engine up to the body. Someone else has already been in here before me.

    New timing chains in finally, new water pump and thermostat.


    Should have it bolted back in tomorrow.


    Grabbed a turbo oil filter so no shit gets in there to fuck it.

    Got it bolted back this afternoon after doing heaps of little things around the engine that are hard to get to when it's bolted in.


    Still heaps of fiddly little shit to go though
