    This is brilliant, I can't believe I'm enjoying a build thread on a barina. Excellent work as per usual.

    Couple of tool related questions, what tig are you using and where did you pick up the electric die grinder? I want to port a few manifolds I have and my air compressor sucks dick.

      This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

        Cool build. Keen to see the engine swap.
        Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

          Thanks, funny people staring at me in traffic today with all the drag writing still on the car, I had added MCM stickers to the back window too. Do they think i'm Marty or something?

          It's just a Chinese special "Super 200P" TIG, cost around $1000 on Ebay a few years ago, and so far have had no problems with it.

          The grinder is this one http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/271201055537
          It's pretty brutal if these carbide tools grab and bend though.

            How noisy is it?
            "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

              Little bit less noisy than an angle grinder. It looks to be an angle grinder without the gears.

                        Yeah and it was going through pretty quickly, until the damn burnouts started.

                            Nah not going to do any weight loss, just going to add more power. Hopefully the 1.8 on low boost will have triple the power of the 1.4. It only weighs 850kg stock.

                              This happened to the plenum, had to cut/shut it and trim it down so that the throttle body could fit between the cam belt cover and the strut tower. Made a new flange for 304 V8 throttle body

                                Awesome fab work as always. What settings are you using to MIG the alloy manifold?

                                Also, please incorporate a screamer sidepipe under the front bumper once the turbo is on.
