Bit of an update since the original installation was completed in 2010, the newly built engine was not making enough compression so the head was removed, bores honed and the piston rings replaced. During this rebuild I noticed that the exhaust cam timing was one cog out, this was causing the low compression.

I decided to pull the engine as the front bulkhead needed some rust treating that was just starting to come through and I needed to modify the supercharger belt tensioning setup as I was unhappy with the existing setup. An RPM Tuning based setup is now in use, this reduces the number of custom parts by retaining most of the stock G60 items (swing arm and tensioner) would should make it easier to keep the car running.

Engine has been refitted for around a year now and is in the process of having the ECU mapping adjusted to get the most from it.





Wishlist :
Get the ECU remapped to suit the engine this year, finally!

Replace front 'uperchagred' grille badge for one the still has an 'S'.

Refurbish rear beam, front ARB, rear ARB, radiator support panel, crossmember, front bumper metalwork, rear bumper metalwork and front subframe with colourgalv (dip galvanised and then powdercoated in satin black).

Replace existing pulleys with stock G60 items and the correct belt length.

Fit MK IV rear calipers and overhaul front brake calipers.

Long term plan is to fit an ABF 2.0 16v engine and adapt the engine to be a G60 turbo.
