Big Power For The Lego Brick!

124 posts in this topic



Subframe now in place.



The timing wheel on the crank and failed bolts that fasten it to the crank. A new toothed wheel and fasteners were used.






Wishbones etc shot blasted and ready for painting


Standard engine loom removed, I made a new custom loom that plugs into the OE loom.




I also moved the relays and fuses from the boot into the cockpit to facilitate removal of the rear clam in future.

Also shown is the Adaptronic standalone ECU







I made a swirl pot to feed the high pressure pump (Bosch 044)



I fitted a Quaife ATB Diff to the box to aid traction.




Suspension refitted having been refurbished.

Very happy with my turbo spools quick ish, but does come on strong at 3000 - 3500 rpm
