Froggy,

"Throttle pre charger will stop any issues , the little Mini Cooper bypass valves are only £30 and plenty big enough if you run a throttle in front of the charger "

By that do you mean having the throttle body infront of the supercharger instead of on the inlet manifold?

Or by throttle do you mean have the mini one venting into the front of the charger?

If you set it up as in the pic but with a big dump valve close to the throttle on the inlet manifold you should be ok . The bypass will allow the column of compressed air a way out but a blow off valve right by the throttle should stop most of the pressure spike as you lift . If you ditch the maf and just run it map/Tps it will save a bit of plumbing as well

Bit of a boring afternoon waiting for pay day. Done abit of port/gasket matching to smooth out the airflow (the man at mercedes that designed this engine needs a stern word in his ear).

Just need some sanding/polishing bits for the dremmel now to finish it off.

Hi Angel,

Its just some old spray paint to make the scratches/defects show up better for ease of sanding. When the parts are to the standard I want they will be ceramic coated to keep the temps down.

Another day of plodding along, on the plus side I have sorted my gearbox mounts. Will be seam welded up when I can turn the chassis over.

Been a busy couple of mornings, the bypass valve is now all sorted. Flange plate for inlet is made and ready for welding.

Just knocking up some templates for the carbon pannels. BTW does anyone know how to cut carbon sheets without chipping the resin?

Well got my new alternator all mounted. And started a new inlet manifold because of my schoolboy error on the last one.

Angel,

The altenator is a denso one, Starterman on
this forum sells them (very well priced too).

I could not say what car it is made for in all honesty.

Abit of slow progress...

Made and welded on the mounts for the side mirrors, finished the altinator mounting, changed the bearings in the supercharger and plated the engine bay.

Coming on nicely

Centre console/tunnel looks really good like that in bent tube

You realise the side repeaters in the mirrors won't pass IVA?

For cutting fibreglass I used the tungsten carbide (?) jigsaw blades, look like emery paper on a blank jigsaw blade so no teeth to chip the gel coat, worked pretty well.

CosKev3, Why wont they pass? because of the edges not being rounded? (not questioning your knowledge, just want to know what I have missed).

No,because the side repeater can't be viewed from all the angles required for IVA
If you look in the manual side repeaters need to be in view from the rear as well as the front,all the angles and heights are shown in the manual.
