    but it is registered..

    AFAIK the new ncop doesn't allow full side intrusion. The old one (prior Nov 1.) does. My engineer has said so far just one mod needs to be done on it. Though I trust this bloke there is a bit of trepidation here until I have the blue plate in my hand.

    Tbh the need to retain 'fqctory' seat belts and what to do with the screamer have been more of a concern right now.

    Oh and this has my trigger finger wavering...

    ^dunno i'm just going on what my eng said when he inspected it. Find out soon enough!

    Good day today. Ready for tuner on Friday. Gave her a tub before putting her away. Just bloody fit on the old man's trailer too, even the doors opened with 2mm to spare saving me enough time to go xmas shopping this arvo. Awesome feeling.

    You seem to be confused between a blue plate and a roadworthy.

    with permanent side intrusion bars you will not get a roadworthy full stop

    last time i spoke to an engineer he said he will not blue plate a car with permanent side intrusion bars, don't know if it was just him being an ass but yeah, you can get rally rego and have a full FIA cage thou claiming you do tarmac rallying

    the OP is in QLD so if he does get blue plate and rego then hell I'll go slap a blue plate on my project stat

    Modesty! Mate without you it wouldn't have started at all, let me know your poison for next time we catch up.

    I was hoping rz was taking notes. No exciting results.

    Most useful diagnosis of the day was that the haltech p n p loom was set at the coils for CDI ( is that the right description rz?). So all day there was spark but not enough to ignite. It was semi igniting or front igniting for you old folks as the ignition/key came off. On key nothing. Rz suggested reversing polaritt(?) on the loom plugs at the coils and boom we had big strong spark and ignition.

    It ran, then pissed oil out the Other cam seal from first turnover.

    Of more concern was the cam angle sensor indicating a wrong number over 180 degrees out and a clink at rear of the head.

    So need to check cam seal, do a thorough check of chambers for foreign bodies, check cam sensor and ring haltech (ecu book says only use one of the cam timing sensors on the 2j)

    I also want to find an auto lec who knows haltech products. Either that or i'll be buying some elec tools for xmas.

    As an aside it also needs 6 bar map sensor, and an oil pressure sender that is compatible with the haltech.

    Rz what did I miss here anything?

    yeh polarity arse-about for CDI, reversed the pins on the coil plugs and it was golden.

    mate that was a sharp noise at the back of the donk, im hoping its something other than what i think it is.
    cam seal is a bit of a worry, how did that get fucked up after just being apart for the cam issue?
    that and the timing belt guide missing = give your mechanic a firm poke in the eye.

    tear down time either way.

    actually thinking about it, im going with a snapped intake cam, given it ran like a total bag of shit when it eventually fired.
    also explains the timing weirdness matty never got on top of, the sync sensor reads the back of that cam....

    did you want to hear that?

    Top end better than bottom end...

    !!

    Could be right. Metallic noise. Could be anything, none of which are good...

    No excuse really. First issue was the other cam, but you'd double check the other one wouldn't you?

    Bummer dude. This is exactly why I let my car be tuned around the corner from Al's instead of trying to bring it home and choosing my own tuner. Bit harder in your case though.

    Plus new motor. Top end was complete and assembled at the machinists so it's hard to imagine they fucked up. Anyway, we'll get it apart and have a look. Whatever it is, it is. Clayto you home this am, thought I might sneak over with the boys?

    Bad luck with the donk, fixed side intrusion bars as part of a cage are basically OK for rego if they are no higher than the seat cushion. Normal height ones have to be removeable. Then there are body clearance requirements for anything else.

    Well it's the first time I've built a project car. Most of it's learning for me. I was hopeful it would be right, but given Murphy's law I hadn't expected everything to be perfect.

    I think 'best case' is cam sensor is shot or getting interference and random metallic click was something left in the bore. Cam sensor on these seems to have caused issues going by the haltech forum / FAQ website. Should know today if snapped cam.

    Thanks to ahab for suggesting a bris auto leccy who knows haltech too.

    Cheers mate,that's what my engineer said too. It has changed under the new rules though he reckoned.

    yep interference would be up there as a cause.
    if the motor looks fine then maybe have a look around the clutch, the noise was certainly right up the back.

    Cam is ok. Got someone coming with an oscilloscope to check the bores and valvetrain from inside. No. 5 spark plug looks like it's been hit by something. Given tolerances are fixed, foreign body is the assumption. Could be ugly.

    Yes.

    Cam seal perfect. Cam cover cracked at the front left either due fatigue or non even tension (or both). Oil was travelling along this crack and in behind the cam gear.

    No. 5 plug is belted so no spark, hence shit running.

    Oscilliscope tomorrow. There is material on the piston and some minor pitting. Concern is that a valve has broken either completely or an edge. Valve edge could also explain shit running.

    Assembly vs qa.

    Fingers crossed it is a foreign body and no valve damage (can't believe I said that) pics to come.

    Also spoke to Dale,he said the cam trigger does need to be set exactly 180 degrees opposite actual.

    So Pics of damage:

    Issue 1: Oil out the Cam seal: No - it looks like the 2JZGTE cam cover hole issue strikes again. eg Linky: http://my.is/forums/f114/2jzgte-valv...inside-446025/

    Issue 2: Shit running. Cam timing and trigger point needs to be 180 degress what it physically is with a non-vvti engine. RZ I don't know if it was exactly that or whether Matty got to near there through trial and error? Will have to compare with what Dale sends through as a suggested setting. Could also have been due to extra air from either Issue 1 above or a broken / chipped valve - see Issue 3:

    Issue 3: There is metallic looking material in bore of number 5. Won't know until tomorrow what it is or if there is any internal damage other than a small bit of visible pitting. Spark plug was smashed so no spark and this could also have contributed to Issue 2 above.

    Will update images in 2 secs.
