Yes, Petes over next weekend and we should have the PTFE fuel line to finish the fuel line.

Engine bay fuel lines are done into bulkhead fittings. Fuel swirl pot is mounted, just add lines from the swirl pot to the bulkhead fittings and back.

Were running short of room in the engine bay so we've take out the battery tray and standard size battery. Ideally we will fit a Redtop battery.
I'm a little concerned about water temperatures on track aswell to be honest, in my experiences standard GTI-6's are ok on track, but with an intercooler, oil cooler and charge cooler all sat directly infront of a standard thickness rad it may struggle to keep cool.

You could try doing what I'm intending to do with mine and make a shroud so all air that comes through the grille is forced through the rad with nowhere for it to escape, got similar issues with mine temp wise on track. I just need to find somewhere that sells big sheets of corrugated plastic at a reasonable price.

The breif time my 205 was charged keeping the coolant temp was a issue. Hopefully be easier in a 306 as there's a bit more room but on my 205 it was difficult to cram it all in + make sure I had decent airflow through the Rad.

Think the plan will be to move the charge cooler and oil cooler, one behind each foglight with air ducts. You can buy proper cooler air ducts then it's only the intercooler in front of the radiator.

I see this is using the inlet manifold and intercooler from mech_repairs. My piping goes the same route but was constantly nudging the radiator in some way - is that actually the right diameter pipework for high boost?

Don't know. It was low boost then converted to HB. So possibly not

Yeh it's all 2.5" pipework. Low boost uses 2" I believe

I never had any issues with heat with my highboost on the road even when I gave it death then stopped in traffic? If you've got a good set of fans on there they will do the job fine Smile

I can't overheat mine on the roads, the temps go crazy after a couple of laps on a track though. Smile

Loving the updates Thumbs up

It's the track work that causes the ultra high temps ...mine is a standard engine with Jenveys....never a problem when going well on the road or Pugfest even !

I have done 12 flat out laps at Combe & I really do mean on my limit of driving & my Oil temp even with Miller top end oil & 19row thermostat plate that I checked was working had my gauge at 130-134 that's far to high !.....

Im toying with getting a accusump after Christmas & I've been told that not only does it help with oil pressure drops & starting up lubing the bores....when gunning it dumps cooler engine oil in & keeps temps down when flat out when the oil pressure drops ?
Ps...I've got my 19row in full airflow ....water temps aren't bad but Oil Temp gets Far to high !

What oil grade are you using?

Christ I only get to 110

what size 19 row do you use?

the only difference is I use royal purple oil.

But over the winter i`m fitting a sump oil cooler system and a gearbox cooler system with spray bars.

Not designed for this atall!
They are in affect an extremely basic tool, You add air pressure to the 'dry' side of the tank, the other 'oil' side is pressured by the engine oil pressure. When running normally these two will balance, once the engine oil pressure drops the 'dry side' pushes the oil into the engine as it had greater pressure. You need to turn the valve on after start up and off before stopping else the accusump will dump it's oil into the engine!

They are an ok system. But an accusump is only reactive. But mainly fitted as many race series don't allow dry sumps

I've never got mine above 100 degree

It lives!!!

The running/starting problem turned out to be a dodgy harness connection to the ECU. We sorted out a lot of other wiring problems along the way so it was kind of a blessing in disguise.

Some other progress has also been made:

Racing battery in the boot




More space in the engine bay, ECU mounted in a new position




I did a 2 stage machine polish as the paintwork had got bad where I have neglected it for a while,

Looking dull waiting to be buffed off:




Looks much better now




Spent a few hours hand polishing and sealed it then treated her to a new sleeping bag Smile





To get it ready for MOT it doesn't really need much now. To get it ready for the first trackday it needs the following:

- Big brakes
- Charger Oil & Engine Oil coolers relocation away from intercooler
- Gearbox (straight cut 3rd & 4th) fitted

But I will deal with that lot once it's MOT'd and run in properly...

Haha I think we had lost interest temporarily but I have found the love again!

Once it's totally ready I'd like to do a day at Combe as I know the circuit well so will be a good place to drive it hard for the first time. I am off the the ring later this year (September I think) but would be nice to make it to a few other events/trackdays before then....
