          Thanks gents. I appreciate the encouragement, especially when progress is so slow.

            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.

              If it's better than it was yesterday, it's one step closer to being finished.

                Only minor things today. Motor back in. Again.
                Has to come out again though. Again.
                fuck me this thing's been in and out more than Freddy Mercury's prolapse.

                So anyway, I pulled the inlet off and found it has two knock sensors, which is a good thing. I may even be able to reverse the manifold to front intake if I use a 70mm spacer but then it'd place the injectors 70mm higher than ideal so I doubt I'll bother.

                The brake booster fitting was fucked so ordered new quick release bits from mercedes which was really cheap. Unfortunately the last part that sits in the inlet port is part of the manifold, which is NOT cheap. I dug all the devcon and silicone out of the old one to find this:

                Fuck. Thanks whoever used to own this motor. Cunts.
                I'll tap it deeper and fit a brass fitting.

                Also found having the cross member and engine dangling in the air while the car is on stands is really bad for the subframe/crossmember mounts lol one step forward one step sideways.

                Gingerbeer came around (thanks heaps! CA18guy!) which gave me the chance to ask if I could - "No.". Ok, what about...? "No." Oh. What if I... "No."
                Ok, can I put two turbos and a supercharger on it with 14in stockies?
                "Yes, that's fine".

                Sweeeet.

                    w114/115/107/116 subframe mount always fuck out. Got to do mine on my 107, while I struggle doing the heads.

                      Injectors futher from ports is better for power. 70mm shouldn't be terrible and haltech may have adopted the wet wall fuel model adaptronic/oems/motec(?) Run by the time you are ready to tune it anyway so idle/cruise/transients shouldn't be a problem.

                            Is the outer bearing too far inboard too?
                            "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."

                              No, outer bearing seems spot on.
