Let it not be said it takes little work to rebuild a hilux :lmao: :lmao:

Since the last update, we got quite a bit of work done.

Gents, who ever decides to rebuilt/rewire the harness of one of these newer tech bad boys with sensors and solenoids vir ALLES, sterkte ou boet!

My wiring is about 75% complete, gona be using full e-throttle like was intended, if it gives me hassles I'll chuck it and go cable.

To get to my 2 knock sensors to check the plugs and trace the wires, I had to remove the intake manifold, decided to have a look inside as I had to install 2 new sensors, MAP and Intake Air Temp.

Underside of the Manifold.

Quite a lot of petrol "dampe" and what else was inside, friend said some places chuck a bit of petrol into the mani to help it start on the floor when customers come round to buy them, whatever the case it got an overhaul and clean etc. Must say them guys with the thick glasses knew what they were doing, something that would have been nice is to have a sort of stepper motor on the runner control actuator rather than an full open full close, but it works.

The end is in sight, at least to get as far to start the motor and hear it come to life.

Got Exhaust Headers, made to clear the chassis with a bit of extra runner length, hopefully it will free up the motor some.

38mm Runners, with 63mm exit flange. Will be a single pipe system, as I need Air Fuel Ratio Wideband Controller and it needs to be fed from both banks of the v8. Also I'm hoping it sounds better than avg raspy jap v8 :beg: :beg: .

So the project is coming along, slowly, but we're going in the right direction. :tease: :tease:

Will try to update more frequently as we go along. :siffler: :siffler:

Deur dinge die eerste keer reg te doen en pynlik perfek te werk, gaan jy aan die einde met 'n meesterstuk sit. Hou so aan.

Het die week ook heelwat gedoen gekry, maar sal moet fotos neem vir bewyse. :lmao: :lmao:

Eers gesukkel om torque converter in te kry, hy moet n paar keer in gly voor hy op sy plêk, youtube you yster :shh: :shh: . Net om agter te kom hulle sê as jy jou torque converter skoon gemaak het, sit 1 quart ATF in voor jy hom op die ratkas monteer. Weer kom hy uit en vinnig weer terug :lmao: :lmao:

Toe het ons die exhaust mani's op die engine vas, harnas op sy plek en die engine terug gesak, magtag, "Fits like a glove"!! Engine mounts op, everything in place.

Fuseboks met relays is op gemaak, moet net die coil/triggers uitsorteer. Dit gaan interesant wees.

4 goed wat ek moet af werk voor ek hom kan start:

Fuel pressure regulator fit met sy toevoer pypies.
Radiator pypies opmaak en insit.
Power steering pomp en boks, sal laat die spesialis dit uitsort.
Die laaste 12v common feed drade na die motor opsit, ignition switched koppel en die e-throttle calibrate( die LINK ecu moet hom leer ken :lmao: :lmao: . Snaaks genoeg, dit maak glad niks saak dat ek een van ons 1KD D4d the throttle pedals gebruik nie, hy is heel happy met hom :surrender: :surrender:

VInnige vragie, op die trigger coil van a 4 punt relay, maak dit saak of sy gront konstant is, en jy "trigger" hom met positief, soos ignition switched, of as jy hom konstant positief gee soos ignition switched en hom "trigger" met negatief??
