Finally it's done!!! Took a day of from work so me and my buddy could spend all day on it and we finally have the cams installed and the timing chain is placed and triple checked to make sure everythi

After reading a couple of builds here including that of @350Butcher i thought time to start my own thread.  First of all some pics of my car. Hate it or love it.  Why the NA build?  W

Update time:  Started mapping the new engine and the break in of the engine. Found some small problems like to high air intake temp and oil leakage. But other then that engine seems to behave great

Photo's from the intake: 

The intake now is a 3.5 inch steel intake (can't weld aluminium yet) wrapped in heat reflecting tape with underneath a heat shield. 
The 'heat shield' near the filter is a bucket from a local construction market.

Still have some issues with heat soak so gonna change the steel pipe for some plastic pipe to see if that makes a big difference. The other solution will might be a ebay electric intake turbo thingy to give enough cold air to the intake (by blowing away the hot air surrounding it)

Glad everything is pretty much sorted with this !
Prior to dismantling my engine I had also done a similar thing with the intake (although my filter is by the crash bar). If the car is sitting I think you'll just have the slightly higher intake temp until it's moving.

I also wrapped my PPE headers and have some flexible heat-shield stuff that I'll put over them once my engine is built.

 

Actually hoping to finally pick up my heads today ! (9 months later!!!)

Yeah i think the problem is that it is sucking in hot air at idle because the heat can't go anywhere. Should be easily solved

 

Good te hear that your heads are finally done! Can't wait for your build

Small update.

While the car is up and running we have a small electrical problem. The app and tps sometimes will get incorrect voltages turning the tps off and stalling the engine.

 

The haltech ecu didn't give any voltages back to see which one is causing the problem. 

So far we have replaced the app sensor, checked the wiring, replaced the fuse box in the engine bay because that one had water damage yet the problem is still not solved

 

I have updated the firmware of the haltech because this might be the one causing the problem. After the update I can finally log the voltages so that's a plus. This update was for fixing the tps problem so fingers crossed.

 

P.s. go check if their is water under your battery, the drain will easily get clogged. Just found out multiple zeds got this problem

I think i finally found the electrical problem (replaced all the engine wiring), currently the car is running without problems so i can finally fix the tune.

I now can say that all the electrical problems are solved so i can finally finish up the tune! 
I also have created a short video so you can hear the exhaust sound it produce.
