bit more progress, and quite a bit of head scratching.







also had it turning off the starter, to make sure everything was engadged propally.
also started stripping the loem.
next to do, fit fuel pump, buy hose etc and induction kit. reverse throttle body. and trial fit the lump to allow me to weld engine mount.

I won't need much notice as long as I have no meetings at work I can please myself what days off I take dude if possible it would be ideal if you could let me know sooner rather than later though

i was going to return it back to the fuel line before the pump. if that didnt work i was going to return it to the fuel inlet near the filler neck. ive been doing a bit of research and no factory fitted car use's that way of pluming the fuel back into the system but there is nothing saying i shouldn't. other than its going to be re-using the same fuel. whats your view dude?

I don't think returning it back to the fuel line will work at all but don't quote me on that.. Returning it to the fuel filler neck could work buddy but make sure the return pipe is big enough or you'll keep on flooding the engine..
We built a nova turbo many moons ago and tried to use the standard SR return pipe but the car wouldn't run for more then 15mins took ages to sort out that the problem was the return pipe was to small....

cool. all the fuel lines from pump to the car are 8mm and the inlet to the pump is 12mm! what problem would arise from dropping back before the fuel pump though? it will be unsed fuel?

the only problem would be the fuel coming from tank down that pipe?
how much smaller was your nova fuel return compared to the fuel line?

cheers dude. ive always said i would do this conversion, but on the 2.5 twin turbo. but when i blow my engine proper style, i thought do the 2.2 to make sure everything works and i can do it (plus its the only only one i could afford the insurance on) then in a couple of years upgrade to the 2.5 and also alot of the hard work has already been done.

rich ive got a non re turn valuve with a cracking pressure of 4 psi, what do you reckon?
