right not done alot really .

im moving house soon so having to get the engine out of the house and into my garage as im keeping the garage . and that way dont have to worry about moving it on move day .

it will end up in the new house dont you worry .

now i had forgot how heavy these things are so i had to man up and lift it out the house on the std trying not to damage the door frame on the way out lol

Image

taking off the std .

Image

Image


std oe valeo clutch going on this is only for the run in of the new engine . to make sure a theirs no leaks etc from seals and to give me a much smoother run in time rather than a much more aggressive clutch .

Image

aligning the clutch

Image

its started raining now . i will get the gear box on later and start fitting up all the mounting points and other bits and bobs so im ready to just crane the whole thing in . i will get the engine loom on as well .

Image


stoped raining so gear box on engine

Image

next step is to get the lower tie bar mount bush remade in poly i seen some one d it before on a forum some where .

one side at a time lol .

the other side from the out side of the car was the much worse side . so should be interesting to see what the inner sills look like once cut that off .

well both sides off car now pics to follow next week when i manage to get down their

anyway a huge thanks to to mr and mrs taylor . add and stacey to every one else for giving me a couple of old t25s .

Image



i only need the core and the exhuast housing .

i will get the exhuast housing machined out to take a 0.64 wheel and i will get a much bigger t3 compressor housing machined out to take a much bigger gt28rs billet comp wheel .

and then get it rebuilt with 360 thrust bearings etc . cr turbos will be doing the work .

this will just be a stop gap turbo whilst i run the new engine in before fitting the gtx turbo .

one housing is scrap

Image

and one housing is gd but a broken stud .

Image

so a quick easy out job should sort that out .

between the two i should have all the bits needed for a complete unit .

basically turning a t25 from this into this
