    Thanks mate! The holes are for the airbox which sits over the top of the holes and feeds into a pod filter. Get good tyre turbulence there too

    Thanks mate, appreciate it!

    Hey Guys, Hopefully if all goes well these will be the last images of the engine outside the car, we planned to have the engine and gearbox installed tomorrow Cant wait. This is my new billet catch can designed by "Aftermarket Industries" Hopefully have a nice shot tomorrow of the engine in there!

    Thanks Shawn appreciate your feedback. I grabbed these from "Earls Performance" http://www.earls.com.au/ They make them in different hole diameters. Good luck mate!

    Nothing special going on guys, but I did manage to source these cool universal grommets. We are working to a deadline now so this thread is going to heat up I hope. Need car ready for interior by the 15th of Dec. Stay Tuned!

    Thanks for our kind assessment of my build. Let me start by pointing out that you have NO clue how much money has been spent on the work done to my project. Im sure all my friends that have spent 5-10K building an SR are slitting their own throats to know you could do it for 2k!! Never the less its working out nicely for us so far. I assure you this is a Jap spec engine and we are pretty confident that the KM's were accurate. Thanks again for your concern.

    I understand your point, If I wanted a high HP motor then we would of just sourced a different block and build that. We felt it best to leave this one standard internally. You will notice that we didnt even change the CAMS. Motec is wired to utilise the VVT ect. Let me assure you if this engine blows we will build it, but if the exercise was to run heap of HP we would of already done it. Even with all my contacts I don't believe I could find someone worth while to build a motor for $2k. And if you knew someone willing to do it for $2k, with all due respect!!! I dont want them anywhere near my motor

    Hey Matt, thanks for the positive feedback. From memory I think the total cost of the tank was $700. It was custom made here in Brissy by Craig from Extreme Custom Engineering. The cost included the new filler, the plate for the intank pump and the autogauge float. This tank is 56.7 litres and is fully baffled with an inbuilt surge tank. Hope this helps!

    No mate, this is a standard Jap Sec S15, we didint need to rebuild this motor, it only have 13K on the clock. If I decide I need more power (which I doubt) I will purchase an older block and build that. This engine was a absolute dream to pedal and never gave me any problems. Don't want to risk anything with this motor.

    Hey Guys, We have been moving along slowly with the project, after the paint job my attention has shifted to the engine, Take a look: Splash of paint on the engine block Exhaust coated - this is cerakote NOT HPC!! 6boost FTW! Polished the OME bottom runner!! New Plazmaman Plenum base plate, this is CNC machined from one piece of alloy! Top View! New Plazmaman Fuel rail with ID1000's - time of a touch more boost! Top View! New Plazmaman plenum! New 60mm Plazmaman Throttle body! New Lightened pulley's! I will post up a few more pics tomorrow when I get the turbo on!

    Thanks guys, its starting to take shape for me. I spent some time on what might possible be my most hated part of the car.. check that, it is the worst part. Basically a paint and rewire, hope it works..
