        Sam was able to just move the AC Compressor out of the way, get access to the side port on the oil pump and prime from there

          Awesome news! I packed my pump with vaseline so hopefully don't have issues, but now know what to do if there are

            What a few days it’s been! First start actually went really well and it kicked into life and sounds extremely healthy and has a great idle with the 264 cams. For an engine with only a very basic map it’s super smooth. We did have an issue with one of the fuel hard pipe fittings at the rear of the car (above the tank, Murphy’s law) that leaked so the first start was cut short.

            took the day off work and drained the fuel, bathed in a bit of 98 fuel and we managed to nip up the fitting and put it all back in and test it. Fuel stayed where it should and we did a proper break in run of 20-30 mins with varied revs. Took a while to bleed out the coolant system but it’s almost there now, I’m actually pretty happy with how it’s coping as the radiator and fans were all unknown. I mean I’d used one of them on my old celica with a 1G to good success and this has much better fans. Radiator temps were pretty solid at idle; anywhere from 90-100 degrees with no airflow other than the fans. It pretty much settled bang on about 95 degrees and was quite happy idling at this and when the fans kick on pulls temp out pretty damn fast. I did some searches online and this temp seems extremely normal for the JZ platform so I’m super happy it’s within that range.

            no oil or coolant leaks anywhere was a massive win! It also sounds amazing. I do have a video but can’t upload as yet with the file size. I’ll figure it out at some point. Have so much to learn with all the systems on it and quite a few little things to sort out. But it’s ready for tuning on Wednesday and I’m excited to see what she does.

            I was also like a kid on Christmas seeing all the lights and dash working etc. not to toot our own horn or anything but I actually recon the dash came out sweet. Not bad for pieces of the shed bent in shapes and a centre console out of a Nissan pulsar.

            will update after tuning is complete. Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly 🤞🏻

              Great result, and I agree that dash looks excellent, it has a period correct feel to it which a lot of people miss when doing this sort of thing.

                        Love that interior.
                        what did it make on the tune?

                          What a day! The car survived the dyno, intake air temps were causing a few issues with the ecu pulling out a little bit of timing. However at the end of it all the car made a very healthy and safe 375HP on pump 98 at 22psi. Much more in it on e85, but for now this will be plenty and allow us to keep finishing off the car.

                          I’m just glad it didn’t boil over, leak any fluid and happy the pull clutch worked as we had never done one of them before. It was never meant to be a HP hero, but feedback I’ve got is this is actually a great result on a gen 1 3076 with the size cooler we have and pump fuel. 280kw should be plenty for now and once the car is registered I’ll take it back for e85 tuning. As is should be an 11 second car.

                          next on the cards is a bit more heat protection stuff, alter the fresh air box flap as this needs modification with the quick release firewall harness, mount the ecu and fuse box for good, calibrate all the speedhut gauges and sort the powertune dash. Plenty to keep me busy but stoked that it runs!
