Fitted the manifold to the rest of the exhaust. Integrated a flexible piece to overcome movement of the engine and an extra bracket to support the manifold. Also welded in a bung for a the O2 sensor.

And already 2015, promised myself to get the Mini running this spring. Started with the outletmanifold. This was bare metal and bare metal is usually rather prone to rust. It is a nicely made manifold so I want it to last as long as possible. Sanded it down and gave it a paintjob, after that put heatwrap on it. Results below and to be continued.

Not much time today, but felt I had to do something. Started cleaning the inside of the car. Used as storage for parts and all kinds of other things but that gets a bit in the way when you want to work on it.

Also placed some goodies at the back

After the unfortunate "crash" of the website an update of the topic. In the end with some shortcuts, but that is unavoidable. To continue:

The tuned engine came with throttlebodies and these were fitted at first, looked very impressive, but we did not get it to work.

In the period after I tried all kinds of things like new sensors, new maps, but nothing worked. It even did not wanted to start anymore after initial, short lived succes. After some contemplation I decided to take the throttlebodies and the standalone off and go back to the standard (chipped) ECU and the standard inlet. The only thing different: a reversed inlet and a 60 mm throttlebody from a Nissan.

Standard compared to Nissan:

I replaced the ugly front indicators with a pair of side indicators of a VW Golf:

After building everything back to almost standard except the engine and the above mentioned reverse inlet and bigger throttlebody the car started but not too happily. Ok, but at least it was something I could build on. When the engine did not run I was more or less in the dark what caused it, because it ran before.

Now it ran, but still not to happily, I had only a few variables left. The first was the temperaturesensor. For the Adaptronic I replaced that with Bosch item, but now with the original ECU I decided to go also back to the original sensor.

Things was..I could not find it. I still had a complete engine in storage so I went to take the sensor out of that engine. While doing so, it was still connected to the engine loom, I noticed that the colourcoding was different than on my car.

This discovery meant that by coincidence found the reason of all the troubles. I mixed up connections. On the engine there are two connectors that are the same. One goes to the IAC (has something to to with the cold start) and the other to the temperaturesensor.

The IAC I did not use anymore, so I cut the connector off. At least I thought so. But I cut the connector of the temperaturesensor. So in the end this was never connected, which explains my problems....reasonable when cold, but when heating up a very very rich mixture with black smoke.

But that was not all. The engine has special camshafts and I also found out that the connection to the ignition is in a different angle compared to the standard.

In search of the problem with the car not running I took off the ignition and replaced it with an other item. Not know the angle was different I put the plugleads back as standard and that meant that the firing order also was messed it.

So in the end two mistakes. But well, it runs now, still needs some finetuning on the TPS and ignition, but that is overseeable.

I am now working towards the end finally...light on the end of the tunnel. Also found out that it is off the road for almost 4,5 years !!! Way to long, but hey, it is what it is.

Last sunday the car had its first really "shakedown" and oh my how that thing screams...Only when shifting to 4th no power anymore. It is like I skipped a gear. We think it is a fuelling issue and have to look into that.

For the rest all temperatures and pressures stay stable so that is also good news. Also good is that the cars feels very stable. We did some cornerweighing last year and that seems to have paid off.
