Thank you very much for your insight and help
Oh, and another thing, EPP got back with me for a price on the trigger setup, minus sensor for around $75 usd Do you recall the part # for the sensor and trigger, like maybe you have some paperwork or a close-up pic?
Here is the part numbers I used when I ordered the parts for the 60-2 trigger setup:
- 030103171L Sealing flange with 60-2 trigger wheel and plastic clip to align wheel with housing:
- 030906433Q Hall sensor with ~15 cm wire:
- 1J0973723 Connector:
- 000979133A 3x crimped wires
- 357972741A 3x rubber seals:
New year,and time for a small update.
I haven`t started it yet,but it is around the corner.
Been having some problems with fuses blowing up,so the wires were sorted out yesterday.
Fuel pump is up and running with the OEM mount,but there is not plenty of room in there for the hoses.
Also had to rebuild for another camshaft signal setup,so I bought a used ABF distributor and overhauled it.Couldnt get hold of an original hall sensor,so had to use the one from a ABA/2E engine.
A new radiotor is also in place,water system is filled and ready.AN hoses for the Setrab oil cooler and the crankcase breathing is also ready.
Waiting to get the catchtank I made welded,and mount it up.
Here is a pic of the backing plate for the thermofan(But this is for the old radiator,so have to make a new one)
if you cut out a piece of the core support so that there is enough space for the radiator and box that up again you could win a lot of space in front of the engine.
to move the battry in the back is a good idea anyway not only for weight distribution but also for safety, you can get a main power switch into the cable wich goes from the trunk to the engine room that kills all power.
So yes, the decision is made that the battery is thrown in the back.Good idea with that main power switch also,will have a look at this later today.
Finished up the wiring for the thermofan and all the relays for the instruments yesterday.Today I hope to establish contact with the ECU to calibrate all the sensors.

My locost 7 build.http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...lappy-locost-7
Dear American citizens, please just bend over and accept the ass fawking from your corporate overlords.
Engine is not started yet,but now ive sorted out the problems with the Halwin software and Windows 7.Looking forward for BIG progress on the car this summer,tomorrow its 4 weeks vacation
Some more parts have arrived also.
- Audi Sport quattro brake master cylinder
- OMP Corsica steering wheel(also need to buy me some driving gloves now) haha
- Wheel studs/nuts
- Tilton brake proportion valve for the rear calipers
- Goodrigde AN-3 braided brake hoses for the Brembos
I am also awaiting for the H&R wheel spacers to arrive, 5mm front and 20mm at the rear.
As you can see is can re-use the brake reservior from the original master.

Now that the startup is an factum, its time to get all the other remaining things together.
Found out where the oil catchtank should be placed,but still have to weld in a tube end for the breather filter to be fitted and a tank mount.Will also assemble a transparent PVC hose and Quick-fit couplings for oil level indicating,since I wont be using oil return back into the oil system.
Played with some carbon fibre sheet today,so I hope the result is good so I can install a new back cover for the radiator fan.I dont expect it to be with high gloss finish,but function before fashion
Finished with the thermfan relay wiring yesterday.So now I hope the cooling is good enough to make a Zero Load map before the car is being sent away for the final tuning.
Following with some pics....
Exhaust wrapping is trying to smoke us out after first startup
New doorside-trim clips,and clamps for the roll bars bought from ze germans.

Car is soon ready for mapping now.The sound of it running is amazing,wonder how it will be if I fit the ACE camshafts.Running KR cams now.I am missing some small bits like oil catch tank,fit the roll bars in front/rear and make some new carriers for the Brembos in aircraft alu.
Gearbox is also adjusted and ready for action,tested it outside our workshops place.Works great.
I am a bit worried if the radiator is big enough for trackdays, and driving it in the Dynapack.
Worst case scenario a custom alu. radiator is an option,there is not much more space there.
As it stands right now.
Carriers that need some minor modifications in Solid Edge

wow...never thought to print off some labels like that
will consider this (using photo paper) next time i tear my cluster apart!
Interior is "finished",just need to change the door handles to someone in a better shape.
Will wire up the oil temp sensor tomorrow,and start it up to make a test.
Still waiting for the caliper carriers,so when they are finished I will call to make a order on mapping the engine..
I need to lower the drivers seat a bit,to get clear of the helmet and the roof
Will try to weld brackets on a old adj.seat frame.
