No action on the wiring/ecu, my son started new job so no time. It's back in my shed waiting for me to get home :( But wait there's more! I just bought another project that needs my attention.
Lotus 7 with Kawasaki GTR 1400 M/C engine :D Wish it was a Hayabusa.
Will attach photo soon

Hey Guys,
No progress on any of my projects except lots of thinking as I'm still at work.
15 weeks now as apposed to the normal 6on/2off. Whats normal?
Better to be here and being paid than no pay or in lock down somewhere.
The Lotus/Kawasaki will have to wait until the Cappo I is finished.
Its too big a project to try start when I get home.

Look like everyone is head down and hopefully getting thru these tough times as not much progress/activity here.

Funny, as I have a Locost in the shed waiting for me to finish one of the GTis.
If "X" is an Unknown quantity, and a Spurt is a drip under pressure, then an "EXPERT" is an "Unknown Drip Under Pressure".
Why dont they just call it "Womenapause" instead.

I'm in 2 minds if I keep the Kawasaki 1400 in the locost or go with an LS1 5.7L
I know it will be over kill but will be exciting. I put add for wanted LS1 engine/gearbox and had
a few replies but nothing worth while as yet. I have the GTI motor built for turbo as a spare for
the Cappo I but still need cams $ hyd Lifters for it, which is also an option for the locost if I
also look for RWD gearbox. For now the Kawasaki 1400 holds the advantage as I have it already and
being a sequential 6 speed light weight motor/box but is only 153hp. The chassis is a wide body so
100 mm wider than normal. Decisions to make.

I'm still at work in Indonesia, 8 months now but have flights booked for 25th Nov. With nothing to do here & too much time on the internet bought another car. This one is complete and goes but first backfire or failure I will fit the spare GTI turbo spec engine I have been saving for the Cappo.
Cappo GTI will get dropped off for wiring and tune when I get home.

Hi Drew,
No updates, Im sitting in hotel quarantine now until the 26th June :cry: . Once home and get something done and update :)
Whilst at work I bought a few bits online for the club car, Davies electric water pump/controller kit, 4in1 taco with adjustable shift light, oil press, oil/water temp gauge and tire press/temp monitoring system. Pump to try help with engine temp and gain a little HP, taco/shift light to cut ignition at 8k and stop me blowing the little A1200. Tire system to build some trust in the tires. Had rear slicks lose pressure and with car so light cant feel anything until its too late and in the fence. Also going to try and glue them to the rim. No leeks when checked but still lost press in rear on 2 occasions. running 9/10 psi on fronts and 10/11psi on rears.
