Stani's Turbo Micra

I used that oil gallery and you know what It has a lot of pressure lol, A bit too much asctually a restrictor was needed for my t25. I accidentally left the the hole with the adaptor unplugged from the turbo and started the car for about 20 seconds and there was oil about 2 metres in front of the car and about 2 foot wide. Lost about 1 litre of oil lol.

My turbo ran fine off it for like 8 months untill i took it off.

I trid an allen key at first but no it was rounded lol. I then hammered a star key in to it and then it came out. its a 1/8th bsp oil feed socket used on most cars.

Had a quick mooch through the thread..

You want to get on a RR pal and stick up a few pics of your graph.. going through a few headgaskets without any managment or more importantly.. seeing how the car is running on the set-up it has now..

I ran a similar fueling set-up to yours.. upped fuel pressure / 1.6 injectors..etc.. but with a piggy back..

..and Going of what you are saying the Standard map runs fine..

..but going off what 'Adjusted' map I HAD TO RUN with the piggy back.. yours will be ultra rich low down and ultra lean high end....

..you'll soon have the engine out again pal..

however with decent managment.. you could have a dead reliable pocket rocket as the majority of the set-up seems functional at first gance

well last night had the car out for a few hours for the first time in a few days, was turning a corner and the oil light came on and then went off, within minutes of driving the knocking began :( not sure of what to do now, i have the mot in a month and i dont have the weather to rebuild another engine in my back garden and do an engine swap, how much is new bottom end shells from nissan???
 

Antony

Ex. Club Member
£120 for main bearing shells, £80 for big end shells £110 for piston rings

i have got all of these sat up in my room at the mo. but theyre matched to block/crank so arent transferable.
 

Antony

Ex. Club Member
yes of course you can, you need the number off the end of the crank weight and the number on the bottom of the block on the oil pump side, if you add the two numbers together you get the grades of the main bearing shells... big ends are a standard size.

so my numbers were 10112 and 11220 so the shells i need are 21332. did that make sence?

thats precision for you eh, no wonder these CG,s take a thrashin :wasntme:

stani, rebuilds can be a moneypit, whilst sound engines can be had for under £100, it,s not worth it imo :)

Get a new engine with low mileage, and get it mapped properly this time.

How much is your insurance on the 1.3 turbo?

its never been mapped before and all problems ive had isnt due to it not being mapped properly, and its around £1700 :doh: donations are welcome :blush:

lol, i would do what i am doing, run your car without turbo, then build up a spare engine with your new bits, take your time and do it right. get some new big end shells for the new engine and make it as strong as you can, afterall, you will hopefully only have to build it once.

thats what i was going to do but now its knocking away theres no point, unless it can knock for a while??? and i can get the money together again but christmas is an expensive time of year

if you put a turbo on it and map it with the ignition done properly it would be very fast defo faster then an un tuned car no doubt.

a well tuned low budget car with less boost can feel adn drive faster then a car with higher boost.
 

Antony

Ex. Club Member
yeah, well mines a standard cg13de with two cats 140,000 miles, knakered bottom end and no piston rings, so compared to mine yours is a rocket ship!!

I'd imagine you would get a proper adaptor for the oil pressure switch and take your feed off that

What did you have to do to the boot to fit the nipples?

remove the old reg plate, remove the pull handle and unclip the wiring for the lights, plug the holes, cut the new square plate and fit then measure out for the 3 holes (2 srcew and 1 for the bulb) per nipple and drill them out, then splice them into the wiring that was originally used, make sure you find out which is which first lol

and squarepants they are k10 ones :)

ok theres a chance i could have my car at this meet, today i stripped the (donor) engine down and took all the bottom end bits that i need from it, removed the ceased piston rings from the forged pistons and cleaned them up and fitted the other set of rings i had, then realised i left my piston ring compressor back in dundee so called it a day. so by saturday i should have the engine built, the engine out the car and the forged one fitted and running all for sunday :)

they,re graded by size eh, on mine there were some numbers stamped on the bottom of the block (5 for the mains, and 4 for the b/e) antony mentioned it in a post a few days ago, and said you add the block number to the journal number, and thats the code thingy for the shell number
