I've noticed just about every tech forum has one of these. Seems there's an overlap with car enthusiasts and tech enthusiasts.


I don't have pictures of my cars at the moment, or a camera but I have a 1995 Lexus LS400 and a 2001 Volvo S80.

How far along are you with that thing?


Waiting for a coupler for the intak and an oil feed for a banjo bolt. After that its a matter of crimping back all the thermostat area connectors, sealing up the crank sensor cover, connecting everything up and filling fluids for a first start.


Then loads of interior work to get it looking like it should.

It's a great car. Finally eliminated the rattle a couple months back, piece of debris was stuck in the exhaust heat shield. In addition, we fully rebuilt the AC system, so the car is basically good as new, minus the rear driver side door.


When I do eventually get the Type R, I am not getting rid of this thing.

I can't get the aircon compressor bracket to align with the block D:




So they don't thread in and I can't wire the alternator. Bollocks.

Nothing as far as I can tell


Two studs on the front of the block that slide in, a bolt that threads in from the front, then those two on the side that don't line up.


All I can think of is that one of the studs at the front is bent downwards...

Yeah I will be persuading it tomorrow afternoon.


After that I need to sort out a bunch of connectors I have no idea what they are for and bolt up the transmission stiffeners for good.


Hopefully I'll get round to all that tomorrow.
