Bored so will do an update...

Looking to buy another car in the next month or so as a run around then the Type-R will be off the road to do the engine swap!

Have most parts sorted now for what I want to do -
Blackworks Radiator & Fan
Innovative Engine Mounts
Walbro 255 Fuel Pump
AEM Fuel Rail
Blackworks Fuel Pressure Regulator
Blackworks Rad Bracket, VTEC Solenoid Cover, Blue Washers/Bolts & Magnetic Drain Bolts
OEM Hoses

Here's a pic of said parts -



All that's left to buy is top end gaskets, S300 & an oil pump, then we're good to go parts wise. I will add manifolds etc at a later date.

Getting closer and closer to doing the swap! Only a few more small parts to buy now, all the major money spending is done :lock: Just got to get a cheap run around to use when the 9's off the road and work can begin ;)

I got my cam cover airbrushed, should look amazing in the bay! So excited to see it installed. :D chuffed to bits! (It's championship white too ;))






This lot arrived in the last few days -

Decided to upgrade on the fuel pressure regulator to an AEM one been as it was going cheap.


Skunk2 Alpha 4-2-1




And last but not least after costing me a small fortune courtesy of a great deal from FunkyPower (I got a free gearknob and good discount)

Skunk2 Pro Stage 1 cams, Pro valves & retainers, titanium gearknob.

That's a big injector for an N/A build is it not?
Same injectors I'll be buying for my build, one of the best injectors out there from the things I've read.

It is big but it's better to go too big than too small. The tuning will sort that out. Was advised by the tuner to go that big to cover all possibilities! Well that's good, I bought them off ijwhiteman and he used them on his N/A B18 so should be fine :)

I'm using TDI North in Warrington for mine, closest to home and good reputation! It's good to hear they are decent, I read up on them a little before I bought

Might be worth cleaning them considering the type of failure Ian's car had.
When I pulled my injectors out injector 3 had oil all over it and god knows what else.
I'm using injectortune and it's £57 for 4 cleaned and flow tested, then sent back
