    I was originally planning to make new rear suspension to replace the camry stuff but now I just want to get this going so might do it in the future if the current setup proves to be overly shit. Locking out the rack is just the easiest thing to get it working and I figure keeping the existing geometry will minimise the chances of bump steer issues...assuming lowering it hasnt already fucked things up.

    I also would like to make new uprights for the rear as i cant fit the R33 skyline rotors and calipers i have because the uprights are just too chunky. Stuck using the original camry brakes for now.

    Haven't given up on this yet...

    Finally did the last bits of the cage on the weekend and finished patching up the floorplan after major surgery to get the set to fit. Pretty happy with the results for my first cage.

    Not really. A MR2 is apparently 40/60 so i assuming it will probably be around there.

    One day it would be nice to put a 3.5 litre from an aurion in and bung a turbo on that... but I'm too busy with all my other little projects at the moment to seriously consider it now. However if you were to donate a 2GR and a big turbo to the cause I'm sure I could deliver a wheelie machine of death at some unspecified point in the distant future.

    I think I have cocked up and not allowed enough clearance between the radiator and the fuel tank... If it doesn't overheat I think I could have issues with the fuel tank getting too hot. I'll probably leave it how it is initally and look at moving the radiator further forward and leaning the top over in the future.

    Insulated the both radiator pipes with bunnings style black insulation you get for hot water pipes... I think there is a fair chance it will melt or otherwise disintegrate. Not 100% sure about the polyproylene stauff clamps either. Trying to keep the cabin cool and stop too much heat leaking from the hot pipe to the cool one

    Spent a lot of time working out the firewall engine cover... Its undoubtedly a lot more complicated than it needs to be but I'm pretty happy with how its turned out. Hopefully I've left good enough access to do basic maintenance without having to drop the engine out. I bought some foil backed closed cell foam insulation to line the inside of the engine compartment so there is something to burn when it catches fire.

    Turbo will go in here perfectly... well except for the oil return which it looks like i will have to put a hole in the block to get above the oil level in the sump because of the way the v6 is leaned back.

    Was going to use the stock ECU but have now decided to use a wolf V500 so I can fit a turbo sooner rather than later... it will be mounted on the firewall behind where the passenger seat should be.

    Cover will seal along the hatch and I'll cut holes in the hatch to vent the engine compartment at the back. Thinking I will also make some scoops to replace the side windows and duct air in to the engine compartment for the intake and to vent the compartment

    So now waiting on some parts for fuel system, electrics and brakes so I can keep going on those. Aim is to get it finished enough to take to the next antilag day in collie in february. Got a shitload of detail stuff to sort out including building a new trailer wide enough to fit it... and missus is due with our 3rd then too so perhaps i'm being a bit ambitious.

    That's a hell of a lot of work done to a high standard. Well done!
    I might have to come & see how this performs in Feb then.

    "Parcel shelf" needs grey flock & a couple of 7" speaker grills.
    Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

    This was initially my plan... it was going to be part of the front edge of wheels flares. It would be neater but I think it would be a bit of pissing about to get it right and I'm now working to a deadline.

    Managed to get a bit done over christmas. Brake and clutch lines almost all done, just waiting on the inlet fitting for the master cylinder on the hydraulic handbrake. Took me 3 goes to find what I think is now the right one.

    Fuel lines done in 3/8 steel bundy tube and got a regulator that needs to be mounted. I've taken the fuel rails off the engine and I am in the process of drilling and tapping the blind ends as part of the conversion from a returnless to a return type system.

    Shifter was too stiff so redid it and replaced the cables with longer boat cables... looks and feels a heap better now.

    Accelerator cable done, its not as light as i had hoped but should be ok.

    Switches, ECU and relays mounted and I'm about to start the wiring.

    Got a kinugawa TD06SL2-20G turbo for Christmas but that won't go on until after i get it running. Also bought a koso dash because I just couldn't resist a bit of bling.

    Wasn't going to install the turbo yet... but figured its already been a couple of years so whats another month or two. Made up a turbo manifold for the rear bank and the dump pipe and exhaust. Just waiting on a couple of v bands to finish all the piping off then need to do some serious work on heat shielding.

    Didn't get any photos but have a stock intercooler from a RB25 skyline that fits perfectly next to the turbo compressor and once i took an end tank off and flipped it around the outlets line up almost perfectly with the turbo and engine intake. Going to cut big fuck of vents in front of the rear wheels to get as much air flow past it and the engine as possible.

    Taken the engine out for hopefully the last time to sort out the oil and water plumbing to the turbo, finish the wiring harness and change the timing belt and water pump.
