I don't think there are cams available for this engine?

I picked up my new water pump, cambelt and top end gasket sets, came to a grand total of ?360 which is about $500 i think? Not cheap but i want nothing but quality parts on the rebuild.

looks kick ass man.. damn.. hmm.. what about webcam.. i used them before and have had a good experience..

Thanks for that, very interesting!

My engine detailing is now completed, i refurbed the top cover which looks spot on.















Also my transmission is now fully cleaned and painted, Anth mixed this metallic shade specially for it.

I have started work on the transmission tunnel, galvanised plates welded in and seam sealed, this area is what's left of my boot, so i will paint it and carpet it out.

Thanks!

I addressed the exhaust "box" venting today, the plan is to seal what boot/trunk i have left off completely from the engine bay and provide the exhaust area with lots of venting, so lots of cold air in and hot air out.

I have grafted in some Mk2 NA engine lid vents directly above the exhaust box area, and i will be making a new sealing surface for the rubber trim that will go around the edge of the box.... this still needs a lot of work but you can see what i am trying to do.







It will look a lot better blended in and painted.

LOL, i was explaining what the Audi R8 rear exhaust silencer looks like to a friend, needless to say i'm not very good at pictionary.

No time lapse, but we do have a live webcam you can watch.... type tv.woodsport.org into your browser and then enter...

choose camera A, then activex or java, remember the timezone difference, we have just closed for the day so there's no one there right now :)

do you think the exhaust venting will recirculate up to the cabin like that?
I'm not sure i follow? The venting is allowing the heat around the exhaust to escape through the trunklid.... we know there are large amounts of air travelling up through the engine bay when driving, so the thinking is this air will carry all of the hot air out through the vents. Doing it this way keeps my trunk dry and cool (in theory!).

Thankyou andres :thumbup

Today i got my new crank 60-2 trigger wheel and adapter boss back from the total legend that is Adamh of AH-CNC.... check out the attention to detail...





The man is god when it comes to engineering work like this.

Also i got my timing belt fitted and aligned, they are tricky belts to fit due to the floating cam pulleys with no keyway!

Hey Paul, I don't know if it's just the angle of the pic or whatever but the two cam belt guides on the left look amazingly close to each other...



Do you think that's weird or do you see lots of engines like this?
