They’re 60mm. That’s how much the wheel needed to come out to sit properly. Fronts needed 40mm [Smile]

Sorry, Not long in the door. Mapper says he thought he could hear a “mechanical noise” through the cans. Short version is i only came away with 310bhp although the car feels much much much faster than a 310bhp car. So much so that I’ve not even been able to keep the foot down past 15psi. The whole front end lifts! Anyway, I need to investigate noise then go back to add boost/timing. Was very frustrating today 😭

I also had my wastegate opening way too early and a developed a wee blow in exhaust (pre turbo). So pretty f*cked off ha!

Just a side note, The guy Andy who owns RA motorsport was certain the “mechanical noise” was just the wee exhaust blow, I listened on the cans myself and thought the same but Russ has done this for years and really really knows his stuff so it’s best i inspect the engine and see if i can find any issue.

Yeah that’s the plan bud. Gonna inspect top end on Friday, In theory the engine should be sound. There’s no notable noises by ear and as said in the cans it sounded like an exhaust blow to me. Definitely a tick at least. We’ll see what’s what. I have another brand new wastegate but I actually think it just has too weak a spring in the current one. Car is driving superbly, There’s no way it’s only 310bhp, I’ve had a 310bhp mr2 and this current setup would have blown that away [Smile] I’m not phased by it all, If there is a problem with the engine I’ll find it, rectify it and go in for another session. All he needs to do is add timing and it’s done. He has setup the map so if i change the wastegate (and boost is coming in sooner then the map will still be safe [Smile]

cheers bud. hoping to find something obvious when inspecting that way it can be fixed. Not knowing is the worst. I've had a few messages from folk saying they've had similar experiences with the mapper and he's maybe just being over cautious. I can't hear any unwanted noises whatsoever. Had a couple of mechanics say the same so god knows!

so, had valve cover off, checked all the caps, no discolouring or anything, cams all fine too. Checked valve clearances and did find one was just about out of tolerance. It's deffo making a small tick but nothing to worry about. However. We put a stethoscope (a drumstick) on it and you can hear it for sure, again, nothing to worry about but...When we put the stethoscope on the inlet manifold that noise is amplified. It is 100% being amplified to a notable level. Guess where the mapper had his cans attached? The inlet manifold. So pretty confident we're hearing what he was hearing. Gonna have a word with him and hopefully get him to have another listen. I'll take a long the drumstick as it worked way better than his cans (since sounds travels better through wood). Hopefully I can get in for another couple of hours mapping pronto. Pretty confident the engine is spot on other than needing a shim on the inlet cam soon.

Oh, also did a compression test. All cylinders perfect.
