Hey Guys and Girls

Its been to long since i posted here. Not much has really happened with the Zed. Mainly money and other issues to deal with. Here is a few pics of the Zed now. sorry i haven't been posting up. One bad news is that the turbocharger wont be good for very long. There is a crack on the exhaust side of the turbo where a bolt screws in, its not cracked all the way but it soon will so i will need another turbo in the future. Which sucks bad  :(

Update: The guys were able to find a exhaust housing for the turbo. Some guy came in with a blown turbo and the exhaust was in good shape so was able to swap so turbo is all good now :D

Whats been done:

- The rocker cover and Nizpro plemun painted red
- The stock fuel injectors have been high flowed
- Ecu installed in the engine bay
- Gave them a genuine Ford starter motor to be put in
- Heater hoses done so i can have heat in the car. Yay!!
- Surge tank for the fuel tank
- Bigger fuel lines

And a few other things which i cant remember right now, but will post when i can remember.
Enjoy!!  :D

No doubt this is one of the most highly anticipated builds of AusZcaR history. Every step forward, no matter how small, is Gold on this Monster.

Please Sir, can i have some more.

Have you got any pics of the crack in the turbo, it might not be as bad as you think.

Wasn't there enough cable to install the ECU in the cabin? In the engine bay is not the best place for electronics... That's the one thing that kills everything! That's why crank angle sensors etc die in cars; too much heat!

All LS1 commodores have their ECU's in the engine bay. With a small heat sheild in front of the LH headers. CAS's fail due to heat but this problem has been accelerated by poor build quality. The original ones lasted a long time, now everyone buys the cheaper ones than fork out for an expensive factory one only to have them fail much quicker.

Seems that people caught the "i wanna sell my car" Bug after the Rust Repair day... Our cars make us unique and it's a bugger when you're forced into a situation. I'm sure if someone did buy it they would finish it and keep us all informed of the progress, But Kyle, all that work? See how you go i'm +1 for kyle not selling.

Ahhhh Kyle, well even I would have considered buying this car if it was an auto and a 2+2. But like I always say don't let these builds go on for too long.
I will keep my fingers crossed you sort out your matters and keep the car. It's a beast and anybody considering building would have to seriously look at your car if they were after a modified car.
Cheers

Kyle I tried fitting some STI WRX seats into my 240 but they were too wide by quite a way. They are very comfy seats though and I'm sure with enough work they could fit.

Good to see you're keeping the Z Kyle, it's looking better and better with each update, would have been a shame to sell it at this stage.

Fingers crossed that it's finished in time for the christmas meet.
