    Yeah they're pretty good tyres, I think it was about $90 each fitted at St George tyres.
    I've been doing a bit of stuff. Worst part about Euro GM stuff is the random mix between hex and torx bolts.

    Made mounts for the smaller ex 4ZC1 Denso alternator.
    Changed timing belt.
    Got flywheel machined.
    Started welding radiator and mounts then ran outta gas.
    Made a custom banjo bolt for feeding turbo oil and can screw oil pressure switch into the head of it.
    Bought a pipe bender and made oil feed hard line.
    Made hose fittings for end of fuel rail.
    Mounted fuel pressure reg.

    Need to start assembling Megasquirt. Have a MS2 kit + boost control + 4x ignition coil drivers ready to go.
    Turbo is too low to gravity drain to the sump so ordered a oil pump.

    Will do a pic dump at some point.

    Good news, I've been offered a job. More good news it starts in January so I have a holiday to concentrate on finishing this and hopefully make some good progress on the Piazza upgrade.

    More pics

    New Alternator mount



    Had to adapt the Astra 5 rib pulley to the alt, with the correct offset



    New water pump, seals, idlers, tensioner and belt



    Clutch, some heavy duty thing I got from the UK. "Kev-tek" clutch plate.



    Astra gearbox is slightly different where the rear mount attaches, has an extra mounting point between the two Barina mounting points which means the mount needs to be modified. Also had to swap in the Barinas cable clutch throwout fork, bearing and shaft. Astra has a hydraulic concentric slave setup.

    Engine in




    Found out my measurements off the car weren't quite good enough and the throttle body was too close to the strut tower to fit a hose to it, so I had to cut off the flange and move it a bit.




    Welded that up and welded a throttle cable mount. The VN moo cable had the same firewall/pedal end as the Barina one so that was easy.



    Test fitting slim thermo fan, radiator, intercooler and turbo. The original fan is huge and doesn't allow any room for the turbo compressor outlet.




    Might keep the chopped front bumper for the track. It's a 10 min job to change it. The original bumper only needs slight trimming to fit, not this extreme.




    Made an exhaust, 3 inch with a cheap varex style muffler. Still have to weld in a blocking patch at the turbo flange end, weld in O2 bung and have to change the tip for a straight pipe. For some reason the tip is 3" outer diameter but dual wall with 2.5" ID.

    grass built stainless mandrel exhaust gets ultimate respect from me.

    in retrospect, if you used the internal wastegate could you keep the main-turbo adapter thin enough to gravity oil drain?

    second go at the inlet manifold is all too common when making custom parts haha.

    I should've taken a photo of the makeshift hoist used for lifting the engine on to a trolley jack. Put a piece of wood across the chassis rails then a scissor jack on top of that with rope over it.

    Nah i made the turbo adapter as thin as possible already. The two outlets on the manifold were too far apart to make it any closer.

    Legit the most pimp exhaust ever seen on a Barina anywhere in the world.

    As usual flabbergastingly good for a backyard job. Is your new job welding space shuttles or something?

    That engine looks pretty tough with the engine cover and inlet manifold together.
