So after much consideration I have decided to get my engine bay completely sorted. had an oil leak for a while, had the common leak areas addressed and its still spotting from somewhere.

Whats been changed is:-

Changing out rev2 loom and sensors ecu injectors for all rev 3 (bought and entire package from this)
cometic head gasket, ARP bolts, full rebuilt on the head
all belts, bearings + tensioner's
drive-shaft seals, sump pan replaced.
New downpipe (berk) + KO R1 system
engine oil been used is mobile one full syth, gearbox oil Redline MT-90
probs going to change the clutch also (may as well with everything else been change). Have not made my mind up on brand got about 200ish left to spend on this.

Only thing i've purchased so far that i have not been to happy with was the finish on the berk down pipe, well its was shocking.



guessing this is called the "stevie wonder" finish, been sorted at the moment.

but on a lighter note blocks out time to get cleaning & get the paint out.



only one thing I have been struggling to find is drain and filler plugs for gear box. are they the same for all rev's? car is fitted with an LSD gearbox. these plugs needs replacing badly. Ill update with more pictures as the work progresses.

I've decided to replace the clutch, can just see this coming back to haunt me in the future. My question is which one? After this engine build i'm not seeking more power.

Do I use a standard OEM replacement kit, Or is it worth spending twice as much to get a uprated one. I don't know how much power my car is running at the moment. I have changed things since I last dyno my car.

Ok just been the garage, I will deffo be needing a new clutch kit:-



surprised this was not slipping.

I was thinking of buying one of these for a replacement:-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EXEDY-STAGE-1-CLUTCH-KIT-TOYOTA-MR2-TURBO-/171428308468?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item27e9ec65f4

or should I be looking at something else for the same money, or spending a bit more? or less if I'm going to over kill.

Well Close to doing something exciting now



Heads off



After inspection of cylinder 2 there was a very fine mark. Can barley see it with the eyes but you can feels a small grove with you finger nail. So the blocks going to be machined also.

I'm going to be adding forged internals to the engine. decided its a shame to go this far without doing this.

Does anyone have a rev3 inlet cam going cheap? [Smile]

Got my hands on ST205 cylinder head. over the weekend. So i'm managed to get hold of an intake cam.

Other news, Everything this afternoon is coming back from the machine shop. New colour for the block is going to be metallic red, I have not decided on what colour I'm going to paint the cam cover yet. thinking may go blue since my intercooler piping is blue.

Should have some photo's of shiny engine parts to upload tomorrow. [Smile]

If you used the Halfords VHT they are no good for engine blocks. The engine specific or enamel paint I found to be ok.
