Hi,

I have been told that Turbo chip are good for 185-190Bhp witn standard CR G13B with no mod.
I think if you increase air flow by fitting SR20, your injector might be not big enough. I would suggest go back with standard TB setup with your turbo chip to see how it goes. Making any mod from standard like I did will make your life so much harder to get it running.

I like the way you modified your oil sump, I used MIG and it is leaking so I need to make it again.

Good luck with your mod, I thought you could fit Cappo gearbox direct to G13B?

Cheers
Atchi

Hey Guys, thanks for reply's.
I think will try as suggested with better f/pump, FPR, fuel rail and back to standard T/B. If I can get 185-190bhp with that then I'll be happy for the time being. Would love to go all out in one step, but unfortunately wife thinks house mods come first.

The sump not difficult once I had a plan, cutting with 1mm cutting disc makes it easier. Welding was a different story. Thought I could make it neat without grinding. 20 years since I last tig welded, like riding a bicycle! yeh right, not quite. Burns all over the place and forever regrinding the tungsten and still went back to trusty point and shoot mig. I did water test it a few times then paint in/out side. With a grinder and black paint you can still polish a turd.

Cappo g/box bell housing smaller than g13b, but UK guy has cut and grafted g13b bell housing to cappo. Used g13b clutch but with cappo centre spline. He say been running 200hp turbo no problems. If I had a lathe big enough to spin the casing I probably would have tried that option too.

Hey guys more progress, but not my doing. My son came home to visit and got banished to my shed while his girlfriend & mother went shopping. No help from me as I'm still at work in Indo. and only got sent the photo's. Cant wait to see it ceramic coated and installed.
He also ordered bits I needed, so should be waiting when I'm next home.

Walbro GSS342 F/Pump

Hey Guys,
No mechanical progress but did redo the wheels and get some new feet for the Cappo.
Got latest Achilles 195/50/15, any one tried them?
Will be home in 3 weeks to fit to car and push around the shed until engine runs :lol:

I haven't tried them, but they look the goods. What size are they?
The rims really suit the car I reckon.

Tires are 195/50/15 on 6 1/2" wide rims so guards will need a slight rolling plus I will probably fit 16mm wheel spacers to widen the track a bit. Got to get it running first then test & test to see what else needs doing.

Sorry, no progress still trying to gather parts, and still at work until 23 Dec.
Cappo waiting in shed for me. Over Xmas, plan is to install alloy flywheel/clutch assembly, sump gasket and mount eng/gearbox for final time with all axillary bits also bolted on. Just want to get it running then make it look better with paint and bling bits.

i know where your coming from ,i recently left my job of 20 years for a job with more time off but less money [catch22]..With just a tight a squeeze in your engine bay the axially parts would have to go on first , i could imagine something as minor as a belt change you're have to pull the motor. great car project ,love to rear wheel drive again

Hey Guys, sorry Cappo took a back seat for a while.

Back on track with few things finished off.

Engine, gearbox with most axillaries bolted up and installed as a unit for the last time.
Water plumbing sorted and original radiator/fan reused over the alloy one to save space for the intercooler. Got a short stubby 90deg inlet pipe for water pump from Suzuki wrecker. Don't know what Suzi it comes off but suited my needs. Machined ends on some alli tube for outlet that runs within the cavity of the inlet manifold rear to front.
Intercooler mounted with ends cut and welded to 90deg. Pipe work completed.
Mounted alloy sheet for intercooler support, engine tray and start of front splitter. Still to be trimmed back and 8mm plastic added to complete splitter.
New drive shaft made with spacer plate to adapt Jiminy rear yoke to Cappo diff flange.
Gear linkages, clutch cable and throttle connected.
Purchased a Vipec 88 ecu.
Cappo trailered up to Hyperdrive Motorsport week before Xmas. Having Vipec ecu wired in,4 X coil packs to be installed, bigger injectors, Garrett GT25R turbo and to get it up and running.
