well guys say goodbye to ve6 pump... not for the next summer but in next engine.... i just got bosch p-series 113 scania's pump...

it was cheap 250e and it has 10mm plungers... well few modifications and re-sealing + service and it will be good for installing... which is quite challenging operation but done before by other guys...

Like in this Volvo d24td http://harri82.1g.fi/kuvat/Muita%20auto ... /_full.jpg
i have seen video about this car running....

and in this mercedes om606 engine too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE0FjNPeosU

The M50 family engines sit at an higher angle than the M20 family engines, how are you going to do that?

If it does not fit... i will make it fit.... by cutting getrag's case and welding it to the zf's case, like in many other transmissions fitted to totally different cars...

today i bought some parts for the summer and the inspection of the year...
New front stock shocks + top bearings, dust guards and bumps guards...

i will get my coils set in next winter so now need to drive with these

Just got info from my friend who has m3 zf gearbox in m20 engine in he's racing car.... he said that it fits directly to m20 based engines like m21 but in little bit different angle, so shifter is positioned only little bit different

Ya, M20 will tilt the box like 10 degrees....so you have to twist the selector mount and rod a bit and do up a custom trans mount.

I has been little lazy with my biturbo engine project, all parts are in my storage and ext manifold is ready etc...

But old singleturbo engine is now running good and clutch works better than ever.
now im welding bonnet hole shut and modified old intercooler tubes, so now they are under front skirt
little electrics mods are done like kill switch in trunk and soldered joints in 16mm power cable

so at this moment everything almost perfect for next summer

It seems that my car is going to inspection in two weeks, after that it is again on the road...
I will do some mods for this summer still..... it will look more classy 80s tuning soon
-bbs rs 17" replica wheels
-bbs front spoiler
-two 80s antennas at trunk
-silver stripe tape on side (two striped)

I want to go with louver, but i dont have one.... i want window wind deflectors too... but i can only find those for front doors :(

Now intercooler is hidden in front, and hole in bonnet is deleted...
Engine is same old one, but biturbo setup is what im doing for this summer...
