I wondered if anyone knows the size of the 2 unions for the oil pipes on the rear of the cylinder head.

I could wait and call SC on Tuesday, but I want to try and make an order of parts tonight.

Cheers

Excellent set-up, much better than mine with a dry deck. I cannot measure it tonight.

No oil cooler needed at least in my case, top pressure even in hot summer days.

I found that the joints 3/8 BSP.

The pictures i have seen online show that everyone seems to use a 90 degree / elbow fitting, I guess there is no reason just to use a standard straight fitting.

Aslo I didn't specify that i wanted a dry deck, it came like this.

cam/top plate on and cam pulleys on.

I had some trouble torquing up the cam bolts to 51 nm, since you need to hold the cam shaft with a ring spanner and the bolt with the torque wrench. I will need to get a mate in to help

Seal that thing well Minisiverbullet. The cam plate likes to sweat as do the o-rings of the camshafts in case you plied them too much.

The SC guide stated a 19mm spanner, it was actually a 18mm.

Any way while I was buying the spanner I bought a cam pulley holder, which meant i was able to do it myself.

Yip I have some RTV sealant in any place it may leak from .

Cam bolts on torqued up now.


I am now thinking about which air filter to use.

individual cone filters will work, but then you can use the ram pipes.

So I am looking at domed foam panel filters from ITG and Pipercross (piper cross being half the price)

I know SC sell a domed ITG filter.

However, I am struggling with the throttle cable bracket, since it seems it will be in the way of most filters.

Having a bit of trouble working out the wiring. In particularly the SPI really packs

I have them on the bench. Basically, it is a separate loom with the main black really box, one of the yellow relays and the connecter which sits beside the yellow really.

This loom had a couple of the old ECU sensors and a I guess a 12v feed.

All the old ECU parts have been cut off, leaving a wire from the main really for the O2 sensor and a wire from the yellow really for try O2 sensor. Can i just remove these from the relays? I assume this won't effect any thing thing else?

Why do you need these? Just take all old sensors out and feed the Typhoon ECU as per spec? I am afraid I am not getting something?
