Love the fab work but really hate the exhaust. seems unnecessary to have two mufflers and it looks like it chokes down quite a bit at the point where it splits into the mufflers. Also, seems like there isn't any means of the radiant heat from the mufflers escaping which would make the cabin quite warm.

There are a few tracks over here that require 90 decibel limits, believe me, if we didn't have to have them we wouldn't, on
the plus point we've used v-clamps and have two straight through pipes to take the cans place for the shows and mega noise events !


With regard to the heat issues, they are still outside the car, we've kinda just raised the floorpan over them.

Thanks fella, I wanted it to look identical to the original FD rear fenders but just wider, you really have to have another
FD next to it to appreciate that it's different and a whole 12 inches wider. lol

Not much to report tonight as we're waiting for the inlet gasket set to come in from Chris at ReWorx (life saver, thanks mate)

so just a solitary pic of the gearbox oil cooler that Demon Tweeks kindly sent me today.

Tonight we wanted to get the engine in but we still had a few problems seating the injectors but this is something that
couldn't be rushed as we don't want to have to take the engine back out to sort the problem of a leak, we dry fitted
the joins and connectors to make sure of clearances, we're quite chuffed with the results, the engine goes in tomorrow evening.


Our first idea to seat the injectors was rejected !!

The rails, injectors and fittings in place.

lol, not after tonight matt, a bit frustrating to say the least.

We built the engine up and yes we DID put the engine in the car but the oil pressure sensor AND the connector at the
end of the secondary fuel rail caught on the bulkhead, the only option was to cut the bulkhead, that was the easy bit, the
pain in the **** bit will be to weld in some box section, the engine will need to be removed again for the welding. **** !!!!


Re-tapped the thread on the retaining nut for the sandwich plate for the oil thermostat and cooler splitter.
