So, a smallish update. I am sorry that progress is very slow, but I am just so busy lately and by the time I get home it is pitch dark and cold and since I have no heating in my mancave the things are not progressing as I would like them to! So I am now focusing mainly on research and planning... An...

Hi Sinisa The trigger wheels I've seen are usually quite light duty so to weld those to the flange of the driveshaft would be quite difficult but i'm sure you could epoxy them on but is there room on the inner flange because the flange is quite recessed down into the gearbox and there are strengthe...

No, no, I thought of the inner flange where the driveshaft enters the gearbox. Of course, the driveshaft would move around and that can not happen. Hmmm, vent slots in the disc are interesting idea, never occured to me! Don't know if that would work, or not... But my question was mainly about the pr...

Ok, nothing to show for yet, but I have been doing some research. The first thing to be sorted out is the Vehicle Speed Sensor signal. As you know, the B6 gearbox is new, meant for modern canbus cars and it has no provision for VSS. It is not needed, as the ABS sensors are used for getting the signa...

Ex pressed steel news

But really, what is it about the hubs that is different? Angle of the shock absorber inclination due to the wider track? I really think that can be sorted out with regular hubs (enlargin the opening and producing an bespoke inpart to take the shock absorbers to the right angle). The driveshafts are ...

Not sure what you mean by lining up? The manifold is bolted to the head and turbo to it. The ports on the ecoboost head are different to the ones on 1.7 so the manifold would not fit to it. And 1.6 ecoboost head would bolt to the 1.7 block, but the cooling and oil opening are not the same so it woul...

Cheers, guys! TBH I am a bit scared by an apparent ease of this conversion. Of course, there is lot of work ahead, but everything seems to check out and, in theory at least!, should work as intended. As I am old enough, I am just waiting for a major setback at some point to make you think: why have ...

Just had a chat with nice gents from SCS Delta. Had some concerns about the fuel pump. Good News, regular fuel pump can be retained as it forms the low pressure fuel line in DI engine. The regular fuel pump will supply the engine with fuel at pressure in region of 3.5 - 5 bar and that is what is nee...

Now, here are the hurdles: it is a modern engine that runs in a car with canbus.

The original purchase was done in summer time. A seller agreed to send it to me on a palette, then stated it will be on a very long trip (lasting for two months) and then stopped communicating. I opened a case with eBay, and after a month or so, I got full refund. So no money loss, but time was lost...

James, if steel liners are made properly and everything is done to the service standards, he can use the Honda set of piston rings and engine will be as good as new.
