    No mate got standard size valves, I think 1mm over size don't flow massive amounts more for the money it costs to work the head

    I'm going to run it in on the big turbo, just with stock injectors, maf and on waste gate pressure.

    Looks very good James :). I'm curious on the result. Keep it up...
    I will do the same build this year. Maybe with a EFR/BW turbo.

    Well here it is as it currently stands, with the sump, oil filter housing etc on.

    [​IMG]

    Decided that it would be an offence to such a clean engine to put a shitty dirty cam cover back on so set about it with some cleaning bits

    [​IMG]

    Still a few tiny bits of oil that are being a bit stubborn, will get these off tomorrow night then set about painting it this weekend probably.

    Going to do a bit more shopping this week.

    1. Diff
    2. Engine mounts
    3. 044 pump
    4. Tubular manifold :D

    I think these are the only major parts that I am missing now, the rest should just be pipework, electrical connectors, oil and water, oh and a remap :) Really hoping to have this finished by the beginning of march which is ahead of schedule but not sure it's a realistic target.

    Cheers, don't think it's going to be here for a couple of weeks tho, although the SEM should be here this week :D

    Yer, not got a lot to buy now, trying to do it all without the mrs finding out because we're buying a house atm, and should be saving the money for that but I can't resisit.

    :lol:

    Only a minor update, picked up my bearings for diff and a new thermostat today in preparation for getting all this back together. Looks like my house purchase is going to come through this week so this might take the back burner for a couple of weeks / months, the mrs thinks the need for a new house is far greater than the need for me to have a fast car :(

    Picked myself up a Peugeot 306 1.9 tdi in the meantime so I've got something to 'to and fro' to work in as I have been relying on lifts since this was all taken apart and as my new house isnt on route for any of the people at work had to by myself a temp car. 9 months MOT, 11 months tax from a family friend so know it's been cared for. Let's hope it's reliable enough to get me to work as I think I'll probably keep it as my daily driver and have the Leon for a 'weekend' car.

    Will still be putting up plenty of updates as the only big part I've got left to order is a exhaust mani and then I can start putting the engine back in, got plenty of bits on order so they should be turning up over the next fortnight...... Watch this space.
