As part of my Timing Belt Service/Engine Beautification work (that has extended to over a year off the road so far) I replaced all vacuum lines with silicone ones, cleaned the block underneath the intake manifold, chased all intake manifold stud threads, reinstalled the chrome powdercoated instake, throttle bodies and Ferrari red crackle back plate, fabbed new hoses for my new bosch 010 chargecooler pump and connected the under intake manifold coolant hose and connected all harness connections.
Resurrection should occur next week with:
Install Ferrari red crackle powdercoated plenum and secondary injection nozzle
Install Ferrari red crackle powdercoated chargecooler
Connect chargecooler ground and harness connector
Install (2) replacement silicone hoses at radiator
Flush and change all coolant.
Buy new battery and resurrection.
Work completed so far:
Complete tear down of valve covers/intake assembly
Replaced timing belt with JAE blue belt
Replaced timing belt tensioner bearing
Replaced all belts
Replaced all coolant hoses with silicone ones
Powdercoated chrome intake, throttlebodies, chargecooler brackets and curved coolant pipe above alternator
Polished fuel rail to mirror reflection
Rebuilt Bosch alternator and replaced regulator, paint refresh
Replaced all vacuum lines with black silicone
Poweder coated red Ferrari crackle valve covers, instake plenum, secondary injector nozzle and chargcooler - polished all bare metal on cooling fins and lotus/turbo letters.
Replaced all gaskets for parts removed including injection seals
Ported plenum backplate and took A LOT off of secondary injection nozzle opening and exit, chamfered all openings including within chargecooler. Cut gaskets to match.
All this was brought on by that crappy orange paint flaking off the chargecooler/valve covers after a degrease.
And next is black carpet to replace puke beige carpet, replace all gray fabric head liner parts with matching magnolia leather parts AND retrofit of 2000 V8 brake booster and abs unit (have sourced all parts...just need to fab a few brake lines and hook up a vacuum pump/reservoir.
