Re: 3VZ-FE conversion. 4 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 102
Not much happening here at the moment Been busy working. I picked up a turbo engine lid for it at the weekend.
In black

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
But it came with this :silly:

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
All panels look to be good and straight. But the sills are gone with rust.
Parts I'll be possibly using are
Power steering
Leather interior
Engine lid
Clifford remote alarm/locking
Glass covers for t bar
Jdm back bumper
Front parking light lens
Stainless back box.
Then there will be a big de-clutter sale :woohoo:

The previous owner had it in his folks drive way for ages and his mam told him to get rid!
Its not driveable. Sills are rotted off it. Rear ball joint gone. No back discs and the front are well rusty too.

I got a good few bits sorted out over the weekend.
Downpipes chopped and modified to go over the subframe and back in its original position.
Sounds sweet. Video to follow!

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
Coolant pipes finished and nearly air free!
All engine mounts finished.
Gear linkages finished and clutch bled. Then disaster struck. Seal went in slave cylinder and pissed out fluid all over the place!
Had 2 kids to take care of for a while.
Mobile Crèche services available!

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
Left to do.
Swap out the clutch slave cylinder
Add more coolant.
Sort out the AFM brackets
Tidy up the wireing in the booth (rastafarian hairdo!)

Thats it Smursfter, get the kids to sort out the wiring, and when it goes wrong deduct the costs of a Paul Woods wiring loom from the pocket money. Pretty soon they will be qualified auto electricans

I see thru your cute photo, it's like me and my child labour, Daniel is actually time served mechanic at 9 years old. Just couldn't admit it until I realised I am not alone in this method of training

Re: 3VZ-FE conversion. 4 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 102
A few more mods done since the Terenure show.
Homemade decat!

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
Still running a bit quiet for my liking (hard to know if it's even ticking over sometimes!)
Anyone with a nice turbo exhaust for sale pm me!
Had a few lighting issues. Front parking lights disconnected over the drivers side footwell.
Fog lights switch was not working and when I sorted all that out the indicators gave up.
Top tip "if the indicators are not working and the hazzards are. Check the hazzards switch"
This melted my head for hours!

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG
A previous owner had converted to rev3 back lights but had only 2 of 4 lights working. Little bit more soldering

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Performance wise the V6 is starting to open up nicely. 600 miles done since the conversion. Oil and filter to be changed after the first 1000 miles. Can really let her open up then :evil: I'm getting more miles to tank than the tubby (50 miles more approx)
The gearbox is running silky smooth after the LSD conversion. Well worth doing! :fatcat:

Mine is the same at low revs, I adjusted my throttle to bring the minimum revs up a bit. Best thing I did was cut a large hole and fitted the adjustable air vent in the bulkhead behind the drivers seat to the engine bay, can open up to hear the lovely sound, or close it of I'm on a long run. Also handy if you're the type of person who likes to know how your engine is running by the smell of it (thankfully no exhaust fumes coming thru)
