So for those that are interested, just got these bad boys back today, fully refurbished.

 

The rebuild begins.

I wish Colin, :lol: however, I am happy as a nun in a field of cucumbers with my modest 720bhp and 680 lbs ft:teeth:

Well, I have had quite a delay waiting on parts and the holiday weekend did not help, however, most parts arrived this morning so got cracking about 10am.

Got the turbos on and balanced up the actuators/wastegates with the good old Mityvac.

Slipped the gearbox onto the engine and installed back into car.

Should be running by late tomorrow.

I thought you used to run a carbonetics clutch? 

Used to is the operative word.

 

Do you wanna buy it?

Mate - you need to post up one complete build thread instead drip feeding odd posts here and there.

This is one of the top spec zeds in the UK for sure.

I honestly just don't have the time mate.

 

If I had started one in 2005 it just would have been a case of updating as I went along but too late for that now, I am afraid.

 

However just to keep you in the loop.

 

I am fitting a Z1 Fuel anti-starvation kit and  RJM clutch pedal assy. tomorrow. :)

Just a quick update.

 

Engine/Gearbox reinstalled and running well and all looking good:

 

Then found an oil leak from the L/H Turbo so engine out again and Turbo sent back to the refurb. shop.:boxing:

 

Turbo arrived back this morning so got cracking early doors and had it running by 8pm and now dry as a bone.
