Bit of a further update. ECU is in and the interior is back together. Driving it daily getting the tunning right. Been pretty good. Got 500ks from 60 liters. Just need to order some intake piping so I can properly delete the idle screw (after market TB has one inbuilt),install the icv in a much neater fasion, also remove the bcdd and the egr valve. Last step electrical wise is to get the tacho working and also tidy up some of the wiring that I'm not happy about.

Haha. Is that really a timing chain wedge or actually a tool commonly found in the top drawer of the bed side table, just a convenient shape?

Should have it fired up today. Bit of wiring since I ripped all the old wiring out.

Sort of a bit lost in terms of having a recirculating bov and crankcase pressure since the only room I have for the pod is directly on the turbo.

Thanks,
Anthony

OK, well, slow progress yesterday, got all my ECU wiring done, but the thing wouldn't fire up. Turned out my adjustable fuel pressure regulator was faulty. Lucky my mate had a stock GTR one (my fuel rail takes standard Nissan FPR). After drying out the cylinders, turned the key and....

Bit annoyed that the head shop didn't set the valves to the standard measurements like I asked them to, so once I pick it up from the exhaust shop tomorrow, i'll have to have fun tackling that. Also, car is running pretty rough with my basic tune. Was a lot of fun driving 5kms to the shop with nothing but a dump pipe  :o. Hopefully no EPA letters in the mail  ;D

Here's a link to a photo album with random photos taken through the build.

Still waiting for my Megasquirt 3 to get released from customs so I can go sequential. hence why the wiring is only temporary. Also, for some reason my ford coils just don't want to play nice in wasted spark so I've given up on that idea and just ordered some LS2 coils.

 

There's still a lot of bugs to iron out, oil a weeping oil pump gasket, but, for a home job, turned out quite well. Thing really starts moving even on 5PSI ;-)
