Finally (to much family visiting during the holidays soaked up way to much time) coming together. Hoping to get it back in this weekend.  And as you can see it does have a hefty balance shaft in it.. (previous engine did not).


And I modified the oil pan gaining 2 more qts of capacity, it is baffled and gated.

Got the oil pan on last night.






Tonight I will be masking and painting the block and hopefully I will be able to get it back in tomorrow

It lives



I got the 80~100 kpa fuel mapping done. Sorting out the idle VE map/ignition.  #2 injector is starting to go (I have a new set to put in).
Speedo cable let go at around 4500 rpm/135mph in top gear (I was data logging at the time). I got almost 7 degrees of of castor and this little car is amazingly very, very stable.  And an absolute blast to drive..
