    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    I did buy a turbo but sold it shortly after due to the cost of the engine management and probably a bottom end rebuild

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    Paul (pollyp) recommends this Radiator and it worked faultless on his turbo set up, I trust his advice and judgement :)

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    I like to get stuck in straight away, no time like the present! This 'budget' build has certainly gone WAAAY over budget (as always) and its nice expanding my knowledge even on a platform I've already experienced. I've got a new CVT radiator ready to fit as they're slightly thicker than the...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    So today was finally the day we get the engine back into the engine bay,woohoo! The first job was to get the engine on the hoist and bolt up the flywheel,clutch and gearbox. Followed by the starter motor (forgot to clean/paint this oops! but you can't see it luckily), engine to gearbox braces...

    Pre-facelift rocker cover screws replacement for bolts.

    I sprayed them with PlusGas (much better than WD40). Any ones which seemed a struggled I used an Impact Driver

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    So an update on the MyHermes nightmare.... The tracking showed the parcel was unable to be delivered and to contact the seller. Spoke to the seller who had rung them and was told the packaging was damaged. He struggled to get back in contact so I tried, to which they were quite reluctant on...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    Spent yesterday (Wednesday 28th) taking the car apart ready to remove the engine. I managed to do everything except remove the drive shafts in an afternoon. A friend is coming over on Sunday with an engine hoist to help finish the removal. With the unpredictable british weather and limited...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    Its been a busy few days off work haha The bottletops could do with a proper refurb but wanted to keep the costs down. I'm still toying with changing them but still unsure. As for my old car, I have no idea if any parts are still kicking around. The engine was used locally in an junior oval...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    Spent a couple of days cleaning the block up and painting. The engine was pretty clean to begin with so luckily I managed to skip the degreasing stage. I used various wire brush drill attachments to clean it up and plenty of brake cleaner to get rid of the dust. With everything being aluminium...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    When I collected the engine I also bought a Garrett T2 Turbo and DIY manifold. I giggled like a little child and the thought of making choo choo noises from my rusty ####box. Thats when I dug deeper into the conversion.... These engines aren't the most renown for being strong when boost is...

    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    I got round to finishing the pin stripe and it looks much better now its all the same IMO. I had to re-do most of the passenger side as I wasn't happy with it. Dont get me wrong, this is far from perfect and I'm sure its gonna lift in places over time but its a cheap mod for the time being :)...
