Got some more work done yesterday.
Got my last two hoses for the oil cooler sorted, so that's now all done.
Also fitted some knock sensors off a Falcon.

Sparky was there finishing off the last bits and pieces, we fitted the ECU and and powered up the dash etc.

Not long now before we can turn the key, just need a set of leads and some coolant and we should be good to go I hope.

Once it is running and we know there aren't any issues with the harness it'll come out again and get braided before final installation.

Well, the car is running, great success, no rods out, no fuel leaks, no electrical fires.

Feels incredibly good hearing it running again after such a long time, and we had relatively small issues getting it running as well, one plug needed to be re-pinned, and my
PWR radiator "which takes a standard radiator cap" leaks around the radiator cap, seems the reach is a tad off.

Very keen to see how it goes once it is finished

Huge thanks to Mitch at WA Performance and Jase for doing the wiring!

It's been a hectic month, that's for sure.

Car went back on the dyno a few days after it was started, it didn't quite perform as we wanted and didn't respond well to boost what so ever, it just seemed choked up.

Head came off and was sent away and got machined to take 1mm oversize valves, and I ordered a new TX2 cam from Crow along with valve springs to suit.

Slapped engine back together with some new gaskets etc. and fired it up.

It picked up an additional 30 rwhp on gate pressure with the new cam and valve combo compared to before, and seemed a fair bit happier.

The Engine has now done just over 500kms, and last night I took it down to the drags to see how she was going, with 19psi of boost, I managed an 11.38 @ 121mph with a 1.80 60, so not great driving from my part, but very happy either way, haven't driven the car in ages, and it is a new PB for myself and the car.

Will be putting some more kms on it and make sure everything is sweet before we start pushing more boost in it, so just time to enjoy and get some seat time now I believe =)

Went out and snapped a few quick photo's.
It has now done about 700kms since build, and seems to be working alright, touch wood =)

The photos are, much like my driving, far from pro. Either way, here are some of them.
