Got the oil cooler fitted to it last week along with relocating my oil temp and pressure sensors
Took it for a run tonight and I'm not sure whether everything's ok with it or not.. When I'm driving about at 30ish the oil temp doesn't wanna go much over 70 degrees, then when I get up to motorway speeds the temp drops to near enough 60 degrees. Is this normal? I've got a thermostatic sandwich plate so I thought it should only open and regulate the temperature once it's up to 80odd degrees
Got the oil cooler sorted, bought a sheet of Perspex off eBay and mounted it as a block off plate over the cooler, now stays nice and warm when driving about. I've drilled a few sets of holes in it so I can move it about to alter the amount of airflow to the cooler so it'll not under/over cool
Got the car back from the bodyshop on Monday after they made up the box sections etc for the cage, also fitted the cage on Monday night with help from a couple of mates
Fitted my new headlining and painted my interior trims to tidy them up, need to touch up a few places where they were marked when fitting the cage but it looks much tidier already
Anyway here's some pics, will get better ones soon
Kinda reglected this recently, nothing really exciting has happened though..
Was on track at the end of May for the MonsterUnit night. Car was excellent! Felt a lot more confident with the cage fitted and felt like I was pushing the car harder. Hope I'm gonna get on track again a couple more times this year
Got a short flyby video too
After that I went to the Jdmy0 rolling road day, the car made 205bhp and 138lbft which I'm pretty happy with. Needs the fuelling looked at but I think my lambda probe is on its way out so I'll start there
I'll try and make the next post more exciting haha, still got my new brake lines to fit and I'm on the lookout for another few bits and pieces so might have actual progress next time!
