That's awesome! Are you using a FaroArm laser scanner or the point probe for your reverse engineering?

Just a small update,

Exhaust system- 2.5" single pipe system from the down pipe back, i'm using two mufflers, one is 18" long, the other is 10", this is going to be a daily(ish) car and i'm only going to be pushing 400bhp max when finished, i want this to be a reliable build so im not chasing big numbers (yet anyway ).
there is a section at the front where a de-cat pipe can be used when im at a Track day-Etc.
i haven't started the down pipe yet, but im planning on using a 3.5" pipe for this, space permitting.

Camber arms - i Took it upon myself to design and manufacture a set of rear adjustable camber arms, being an engineer, and having access to CNC machines, i did exactly that. for 50 i have made myself a set of heavy duty camber arms... WINNER! being me, i also put my builders mark on it

Cylinder head- the cylinder head is finished, i just need to work on the lower half of the engine now, i also had chance to fit all of my custom manifold flanges, all ready for tacking the manifold together now

one other brief note, i've noticed on a few of the Cam journals (Pictured), there is some light scoring on them, i've used some light sandpaper to polish them, i'm not too concerned this may be a problem, but would be nice for a second opinion has anyone else encountered this?

For the first time in a year and a half, the rear axle is back on and touching the floor!
Making some good progress now
The custom made adjustable camber arms fit perfectly too!

Hey guys, first update in a while!

I've been working on quite a few things recently and developing a few ideas..

First off is addressing the infamous oil pump nut, I have designed and made my own version of the 4 bolt system, yes it is based on the GSR oil pump shaft but I have decided to remove the dowels from the design, using the centre diameter of the shaft to centralise the sprocket. I am also using nord lock washers to prevent them coming loose. Despite doing this, I was concerned with the amount slack in the chain once I had test fitted it to the block and it made my wonder... Why isn't there a tensioner?
I had a tensioner from an audi 1.8t (20 valve) engine laying around that I rebuilt a while back and offered it up to the block... Looked perfect to me! So I modified the block by drilling a 3mm hole for the spring and tapping a m7 hole for the tensioner to bolt to. Looks great to me and there is tons of clearance when the cover is on!

I have also finally got the car back on 4 wheel's so it's good progress! I've fitted some 360mm discs up front too, ready for some brembo's
The discs are from a range rover sport and cost 89 for the pair...winner!

Thanks! I forgot to mention, there is a 2mm washer behind it to make it more central over the chain

Nicely done with both pump shaft and tensioner.

That's cool. Have you got part number of that tensioner? You sure it's taken from 1.8T 20V?

Yeah I'm sure it is, OE- NUMBER - 06A 115 130 B.
There are quite a few variants of the 1.8t 20v engine a few use this tensioner.
