  1. Engine together and now quiet !! No timing chain slack No ringing from the starter gear and no buzzing from the oil cooler pipe No tapping from injectors. Well happy. Just got to get it mapped now iv'e fitted slightly bigger injectors
  2. Thanks Mike. I had seen that calculator but i thought the recommended injector rating which was at 43.5psi had to be adjusted for the higher pressure i run. Just realised the adjustment is in the calculation allready. Looks like i will be keeping the secondary injectors after all 🤨 Also as the fuel pressure rises with boost, should the final pressure in the table be running pressure (65) plus boost pressure (10) i.e.75psi ??
  3. Cheers Steve. That statement is above my pay grade, i'm going to have to google that?? Unless you could explain in laymans terms 🤔
  4. Bit the bullit and sourced bigger injectors. I will get my Emerald ECU to run just on these new Bosch 0280 156 211 's and delete the use of the secondary injectors. This is the difference in flow between the original Rochesters in the middle and the new Bosch ones either end. Acceleration mode at 60psi. Quite a difference, 42% However, all other modes of testing show approx 24% increased flow ??? I
  5. Nice fabrication hope the throttle boddies will be easy to balance. I found on mine, the biggest restriction in the induction side was the tight bend in the nearside pressure pipe out of the turbo's. Have you managed to redesign these?
  6. Looking good, Do you have all the parts to complete the re assembly now ?
  7. Laborious but worth it in the end, mine averaged 432.5 G with .3 gramm variance.
  8. Lovely clinical work Mike. Could i ask as i am bolting mine together at the moment. i have found that i can rotate the crank about 2 degrees when the idler shaft is locked ( by the cam belts), Chain and gears are new and tensioners are adjusted. Movement appears to be the Morse chain on the crank gear. Does yours do this ? Ta. Alan
