    power steering pumps do work for oil returns, although the one i saw was a second pump mounted down lower, but i dont htink it was completely below the level of the turbo.

    ECU, as i mentioned in the turbo EA thread, pretty sure with this things to, its a $20 socket and a $10 eeprom chip to remap it (providing your not including the cost of the eprom burner)

    supercharger's mentioned above arent that bad. they are 1.42L vs an M90 which is only 1.5L. obviously there is more to a supercharger than volume but quite a few people do run them at ~10psi, as much as they supposedly dont like it lol

    also turbo, look to US ebay, new T3/T4's are cheap

    Nothing the same between the ecotech and older motor, different block, heads, inlet etc. etc.

    So, is it only the drivers window that needs to be able to operate?

    For everyones "Can I get away with . . " question, the answer is yes. Then, when you run quicker than someone, they can carry on about how all their windows operate

    track officials. I know shit all about drag racing at EC these days. I know the driver's window must work but don't know if the other 3 need to.

    i'll get right on that....

    So I need early borg warner crownwheel bolts. VN uses reverse thread bolts that are much larger than the pintara 4.11 crownwheel uses. This is now holding up the diff rebuild.

    next thingts to do are:
    strip the other 2 doors,
    cut the tow bar bolts and get rid of the tow bar,
    gut the boot
    gut the bonnet
    fit the headlight controls and shit back in
    fit tacho
    fit NAWZZZZ
    find a cheap stall converter.

    So I need to decide if I should put some words down the lower side of the doors.
    a. "NANG NANG NANG NANG" or
    b. "Walk.com.au"

    I will confirm this. No operational windows on that car at all. Opening the door works well.

    Just make sure headlights and brake lights work.

    getting lighter



    Driver's door is still original for safety.



    Ginormous towbar and bumper bracket assembly removed. Bumper skin has been refitted with some thread bar.

    Those VNs weren't that solid a car were they? Looking at your stripped-out interior pic there's not a great deal of metal in there. I always thought Dad's VP felt pretty flexy in the body and now it's obvious why.
