Is there any plan with the colour scheme of the engine bay or is it what mood you are in? :p

Coming along nicely though!

No real colour scheme.

The pink was just some paint i had left and was bored :)

Its only a track car so i dont even know why ive bothered powder coating.

Hows the turbo ? Gutted i had to give up on the turbo engine after the crash :-( , probably for the best , got one turbo monster as it is !

The build is coming along slowly but I have negotiated with the mrs a day at the weekend that she'll go out with the wee man and let me get on with it. Hopefully get it pushed on a bit.

Same here Buddy , i keep getting grief for spending my free time on the cars !

Ive had to recover from a serious road accident which happened at xmas which left me not being able to walk for 3 months !

Ive since then stripped my 200sx and re-built one from just a shell and got running and MOTD on sat hence this build stopped !

Its never quick turn around with work and a mrs to keep happy :)

Other projects I.e the Nissan have too priority so this hasn't really been touched !

Currently having issues trying to start tr car , the immobiliser light is going out and turning over but I can't get it to fire .

There's fuel getting to the rail but need to check if it's getting a spark.

Hopefully somebody off here is going to take a nose , need to get this on track this year

Currently have a electrical fault which is preventing the car starting !

We have checked and there is fuel getting to the rail but the injectors are not firing ! Somethink is not communicating !

Also checked for spark !

Need somebody with a decent diagnostic machine I think

Is it turning over on the starter motor or not doing anything?

Its turning over auxillary belt is rotating .

Fuel doesn't appear to actually be going through the injectors itself once it gets to the injector rail so I think somethink electrical is stopping the injectors firing ?

There is the electrical fault display on dash . My diagnostic machine doesn't pic up any faults so I need another machine maybe which may pull up some fault codes

Looks like the issue could be related to the throttle potentiometer and the throttle body.

Ive got some 2nd hand one being sent to see if this sorts my problem and it fires.

The throttle body butterfly valve is not opening when the throttle is pressed on start up

Hopefully Getting somewhere and it will fire up soon !

Its picked up 3 faults on my mates scanner.

Fuel Pump relay issue , Actuator control Fault and one to do with the pedal . Im sure ive always had this faul ! I ve tried swapping pedal and throttle body too !

Yeah me too ! Can't believe I've had the car so long and never drove it since I bought it 4 years !

accidents and other project had to take priority .

Hopefully my mate sorts it when he turns up.

My mate has got it running , he found two cores damaged , they had gone green so that's 2 of 3 fault gone now.

Still got a throttle body fault , I swapped my throttle body for one I bought of here so hes going to try my original to see if that sorts that.

Do the throttle body have to be programmed to each car ?

Looks like I need to buy the ABS software for my RS Tuner or get a decent diagnostic machine to open the ABS Pumps Valves as it maybe air in the pump .

I guess I will sort out any remaining jobs like aerocatches and fitting of the harnesses and check for leaks

Currently debating whether to keep the car or break it or finish it off and use it on track for abit then sell on as a whole or break it then.

I'm looking to buy a house next year so some of the toys need to go !

I currently have a 400bhp Nissan 200sx turbo
BMW 330ci M sport convertible
Vauxhall Astra Van with a C20XE conversion
An Racing Blue Clio 182 !

I think the BMW and Van are the first to go

flol, epic build is epic! fair play for still sticking with it, did you buy a house and sell the rest of the fleet in the end?!

Well this took a back burner after the crash !
The Nissan literally took all my spare cash !
The Nissan engine is now in need of a rebuild so that's going to be stored for a year or two now !

so I have the Nissan 200sx , this clio and E92 M Sport coupe 320d in white and a house im paying for on my own !

Having this brake issue was big pain and with no tax or insurance getting it anywhere would have cost money then whatever the costs sorting.

Thankfully managing to get the RS Tuner with ABS software to work with windows 10 and borrowing a compressor I had success getting a brake pedal at last !

Now its time to finish all other outstanding jobs , drop the oil and filter as I expect with it standing for a year its probably got moisture in it !
