website updates are few and far between these days, i still spend time on the cars, here's a good example of that ;)

so i turbo'd the slant,
worked well with the EFI conversion, easy to add forced induction, basically
- RX7 series 5 turbo that i got from a mate real cheap
- BA falcon intercooler
- 2.5" exhaust

i set this all up on the original motor (Will get it all with pics below), ran it like that for a while but it had always been a bit down on power/stumble off idle, etc, looked further into that and found that the motor had a badly burnt valve, 

number 6 being the offender



So yes they will run like that, just not awesome

A friend was nice enough to donate me a runner slant that he pulled out for a conversion and had been sitting around for a while, ended up giving it a once over/full tear down, ended up pulling both motors down, my original motor had badly scored bearings, glazed bores, etc etc, so it was due for something to be done anyway.
- left the cam
- bearings were good
- broke a ring so ended up installing newies
- found out the hard way late and early cranks do not have the same crank flange spigot at the rear, had to do a quick crank swap the same night that i was due to install the whole situation back into the car, had a few friends over that were keen to get it done so i whipped it out, gave the other crank a once over and dropped it in, re-sealed everything and dropped it in the bay again.
- baffled the stock sump to keep the oil around the pickup under braking (not that it brakes like a modern car, but it stops ok)

Managed to slip an EFI pic in here, it did all kind of happen over the same 4 week period
