Finally getting the manifold made, this was the first attempt. I didnt like how much it stuck out and how the turbo was rotated

So second attempt looks a lot better

I now have the engine at home, I need to add in some oil and water pipes to the turbo and tidy up the breathers

JEK Fabrications made the exhaust manifold, oil return and also the brace which is rose jointed to allow movement due to heat.

I have also looked at the PCV breather and added in an oil pressure sensor (only comes with temp as std) and I need to seal all the joints

Then I need a TMAP sensor, Lambda sensor and stuck whether I ship it back to Specialist Components for mapping (where their normal dyno has a long waiting list) or book it in to make the engine mounts, get the engine running (2 month waiting list) on the std map and then drive to SC to have it mapped.

Ideally I ship it to SC and they get it back in 2 months and I get the engine installed but I don't think the way the project has run its that easy

Wow, you go away for holiday and leave the car with a man and **** gets done.......why didnt i do this before

Anyways, engine mounts are now made and engine is in the car. Turbo hasnt been fitted but i see no reason why it wont fit

Drive shafts fitted all ok, no rubbing (unlike duratecs so i am told)

No idea what this lug is but seems to be ok

Wiring next

Got the inlet and the turbo on today

Looks like it was meant to be in there, lot of room for the turbo and inlet was fitted in 30 mins as it went through the inspection hole

Wiring is now being sorted and I'll plumb in the water and oil hoses when home

The new fuel pump turned up today, big thanks to Gaz at Spitfire Engineering. This (small) pump should provide enough fuel for 500bhp at 3.5bar and Gaz kindly sent me a complete unit, i have to send my old unit back. I went for the Deutschewerks pump

This will save me a swirl pot, lots of fuel pipes and i dont need the Bosch Motorsport pump i had on the T series.

Hoping to have the car wired up to the ECU and Ford Loom next week

Got the Elise out today and did some work at home

Put the engine cover on and it will be tight but the HPFP pressure sensor and the wastegate both it (when level) but need to get the rear clam on to check

I have the Duratec Silicone Hoses from Essex Autosport and tried to get them to fit. I got very confused until i realised the Ecoboost water inlet and outlet are on the opposite side to the Elise so after doing some searches (yes i know) of the Duratec builds i saw the swap of water pipes. With some pipework from the rover i managed to get it all set up

This makes it a little congested under the inlet, as the water pipes Swap over, the oil cooler water pipes, the remote filter pipes and the throttle body inlet.

Fitted the starter and it fouls the bell housing adaptor, bit strange but an easy fix

Also looked at fitting the fuel pump, and the hole is too small, i think i will go for the easy option of cutting the top rather than dropping to the tank (as no ramp)

Perks of custom engine installs mate.

At least all the mods and adaptions you make will be a great guide to anyone
else who fits this Ford lump.
